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. 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
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.

    Mahindra Thar: The Off-Road King 

    Ever since I got my hands on the Mahindra Thar, it has been an exhilarating journey of discovering landscapes I never thought I would explore. This beast, with its 2.2 liter mHawk diesel engine pushing out 130hp is unapologetically powerful and ready to tackle the most challenging terrains. The 4x4 capability makes it a dream for off road enthusiasts like myself.However, driving through city traffic in the Thar is where the romance slightly fades.The heavy steering and the firm suspension setup, while perfect for rugged terrains and uncomfortable on urban roads.

    The Tata Nexon has been a popular choice among Indian consumers and after spending considerable time with it it is not hard to see why. The spacious cabin and thoughtfully designed interiors add to its appeal. However the Nexon is not without its flaws. Moreover while the Nexon scores high on safety some users have reported inconsistencies in build quality and after sales service which can be a concern.

    the absolute best for you 

    The Tata Nexon is a popular compact SUV known for its spacious interior, safety features, and stylish design. The mileage varies depending on engine and transmission choice. The petrol engine might deliver around 12-14 kmpl in the city and 16-18 kmpl on highways. The Nexon offers me a choice of engines, with both petrol and diesel options providing good pick-up and comfortable driving experience.It comes equipped with dual airbags and a bunch of safety features. Keep in mind the features vary depending on the variants.
