Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which engine option between the petrol & diesel is more fuel efficient and delivers better pulling power - Thar 2020 - Thar 2020?
  • The 2020 Mahindra Thar gets two engine options - a 130PS/300Nm 2.2-litre diesel engine and a 150PS/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine. Since the petrol unit is a turbocharged one, the power figures are higher for it than that of diesel. Moreover, the fuel efficiency figures aren't out for the Thar yet so we'll have to wait for that. Also, Selecting the right fuel type depends on your average running of the car. If you drive less then 50km in a day then we recommend you to go with a petrol car as they are easy to maintain, have a longer life span and they cost less initially then the diesel car. On the other hand, diesel cars are preferred if the average daily run is more than 50km which makes it feasible purchase. For a better understanding of performance and drivability, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.

Q. What is average mileage of petrol version of Thar 2020 in city? Should I go for diesel or petrol version.
  • Selecting the right fuel type depends on your utility and average running of the car. If you drive less then 50km in a day then we recommend you to go with a petrol car as they are easy to maintain, have a longer life span and they cost less initially then the diesel car. On the other hand, diesel cars are preferred if the average daily run is more than 50km which makes it feasible for a purchase. The diesel cars are more fuel efficient and provide more torque, therefore, are preferred for a person who drives more than 50km. Whereas, petrol engine has a low service cost, more life span, generally have a well-controlled NVH level and are cheaper in cost than the diesel engines. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
  • I think diesel is the best for off roading car!
  • 9kmpl. petrol is more refined
Q. I want to know the advantages and disadvantages of Thar which nobody has told as yet
  • Mahindra has build the new Thar from grounds up and now it looks more modern with tweaked styling and improved interiors. Also, the brand has included new powertrain options including petrol, diesel and automatic options. Thar 2020 gets 4x4 drive with a low range transfer case as standard. Moreover, Mahindra has done a brilliant work on the quality of interiors, features, improved noise vibration and harshness management, better departure and breakover which makes it a more capable off-roader. On the other hand, Thar features an old school ladder frame which increases the body roll over curves, offers stiff ride quality and is not a viable alternative to a proper compact or sub compact SUVs. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - 2020 Mahindra Thar: First Look
