Mahindra Thar Latest Updates

Mahindra has launched a special edition of the Thar called the Thar 700. The Thar 700 celebrates Mahindra’s 70th anniversary and will be the last edition before it says goodbye. Limited to 700 units, the Thar 700 gets cosmetic updates inside out to ensure that it stands apart from the current-gen SUV. It gets new alloy wheels and a new exterior shade called ‘Aquamarine’ from the Marazzo. Apart from the Aquamarine shade, the Thar 700 can be picked in the 'Napoli Black' paint scheme. The Thar 700 also has a silver finish in the centre portion of the bumper for a contrasting effect. There is a ‘Thar 700’ badge on the front fenders bearing Anand Mahindra’s signature in it. On the inside, the Thar 700 gets black leatherette seat covers. The special edition Thar is priced at a premium of Rs 39,000 over the standard SUV, which retails at Rs 9.60 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Editor's View of Mahindra Thar

  • Upside

    Retro design, capable off-roader, comfortable ride on all surfaces

  • Downside

    Bare bones interior, not ergonomic for daily driving, not backed by a reliable after-sales service network

  • Our Verdict

    The Thar remains one of the last of its kind – simple and tough with a capable 4x4 system. With the CRDe variant getting a more comfortable cabin and new locking differential, the Thar gets creature comforts for those looking for more than a bare bones SUV.

    The THAR CRDe has captured the imagination of off-road enthusiast and city slicker alike. The New THAR CRDe has yet again set new benchmarks with its bold muscular road presence, unmatched go anywhere capability, refined and power-packed performance that’s best in its category.

    It is the best recreational vehicle money can buy in India. It can outsmart a Jeep Wrangler that costs 5 times the price of a Thar Crde.

Mahindra Thar Highlights

Thar is the offering from the house of India’s leading utility maker, Mahindra and Mahindra. True to its off-roading DNA, Thar appeals more to the conquerors than typical city drivers. . Mahindra has updated the styling of Thar in its recent facelift and the overall demeanour of this off- roader feels more contemporary now. Interiors have gone under a drastic transformation which adds to the overall appeal of the Thar. There are two engine options under the hood - a 2.5-liter DI diesel engine and a 2.5-liter CRDe putting out 64 PS / 183 Nm and 106 PS / 247 Nm respectively. In addition to 5-speed manual transmission, Mahindra Thar also features differential lock with low and high gear ratios for true off-roading. Priced in the range of Rs 6.39-8.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Mahindra Thar rivals Force Gurkha, Maruti Gypsy, and its own cousin Bolero among others.

Thar Specifications

The poor man’s Jeep Wrangler is offered with two engine options - a 2.5-litre m2DICR engine and a 2.5-litre CRDe. The former of the two produces 63PS/195Nm and is available with two- or four-wheel drive systems. The latter is tuned to generate 107PS/247Nm and is the one to opt for. Both engines come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, whereas the 4WD variants feature a low-range gearbox as well. It is this off-roading tech and the availability of a mechanical differential lock that makes the Thar simply one of the best vehicles to go serious off-roading in. There is no automatic as off now. Maybe that will come into the equation with the new-gen Thar which, by the way, is being developed. Mahindra hasn’t bothered to reveal the mileage figures no matter how bad we want it.

Thar Variants

Mahindra couldn’t possibly create a vast variant list because the Thar doesn’t have enough features. Hence, there are three variants on offer - m2DICR 2WD, m2DICR 4WD and 4WD CRDe. The only recommended variant is the most expensive one, which comes with the more powerful engine and 4WD. The m2DICR variants don’t have enough oomph under the hood and miss out on basic features like AC, door trims with armrests, windshield demister, cupholders and an accessory socket.

Thar Exterior and Interior

One of the most impressive things about the Thar includes how it demands attention wherever it goes. And that comes courtesy of its old school, no-nonsense looks. The front looks menacing, with that in-your-face seven slat metal grille, flanked by round headlamps and the brawny bonnet silhouette. The plastic bumpers, huge wheel arches, excellent approach and departure angles for tyres, up to 200mm of ground clearance, the soft-top roof, the rear mounted spare wheel and the exposed door hinges all come together to exude rugged simplicity. In short, no matter what you are in, if a Thar goes by, you will give it a second glance.

This is where the Thar feels less than adequate in today’s time and age. The front seats point in the correct direction but the ones at the rear are two benches, facing each other. The dual-tone dashboard tries to liven up the cabin but the fit and finish is far from perfect. As far as safety tech is concerned, there isn’t any; neither ABS, nor airbags. There is no music system either but Mahindra proudly highlights the provision of a 2-din one. Wow! Frankly, expecting a company-fitted music system is a bit optimistic because the Thar doesn’t even have power windows.

Mahindra Thar Competitors

Force Gurkha: The Gurkha has always been in the Thar’s shadow. That said, it does offer a more versatile package, with options like a five-door setup, hard- and soft-top roof and seats facing the front. However, the force in the Force Gurkha’s offering diminishes with its 85PS/230Nm, 2.6-litre diesel mill and the fact that its least expensive variant is dearer than the range-topper of the Thar.


If you are the sort of person who puts the ease of off-roading above practicality, features, safety and quality, then the Thar is the best sub Rs 10 lakh option for you. In other words, the Thar cannot pass as the sole family vehicle and can only be considered as a second or a third vehicle in the garage to utilise its specific deliverables.
