About Mahindra Thar 2015-2019

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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Thar 2015-2019

Q. Confused with mahindra thar and xuv in comparison to Jeep compass
  • A big no to Thar as it is the most uncomfortable vehicle on this planet. Too too bumpy. Hope they make some improvements in the upcoming model. It is good if u r a full time off roader and don’t mind the thumps. XUV is a middle of the path vehicle. Very low on driving pleasure. The jeep stands out here if they have removed the early flaws. For serious off roading you have to go for Trailhawk as the GC of regular Compass is a disappointment. If you are full time off roader you can also consider Force Gurkha. It wasn’t good earlier but the Gurkha Extreme makes good sense. It has Mercedes genes ( G -Wagen )

Q. I am interested to buy Thar. Is it comfortable for long trip? what about the speed on highway with safe mode?
  • The front two passengers will be comfortable. If you have rear passengers, would not suggest a long ride, as long as rear passengers are ok being uncomfortable.Appies to stock versions, modifications you can do it anyhow you require.
  • It's the best for long drive if you have rear front facing seats else I am sure rear passengers will become your enemies. But in terms of driving on highway it will surely make you feel king of roads. With stock tyres you can claim 14kmpl if driven 90kmph. I have achieved a top speed of 160kmph but after the wider tyres of 32 inches now max speed is 130
  • 100 to 120 is safe speed. Not comfortable for long rides if traveling with co passengers

Q. Which model of Thar is value for money?
  • Close your eyes and go for crde 4x4. I have been driving thar for last 3 months and its been my primary vehicle. In city or highway or off road its the best. It carries the older scorpio engine and its refined and with customization from T8 or code 6 you can achieve upto 160 hp. After owning Honda city, figo 2015, endeavor 2017 and now thar. I say it's the best if you want to enjoy raw Power and the tough vehicle just go for thar. The attention that thar grabs no other vehicle grabs.
  • Yes , As the 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.
  • Go for crde 4x4 and get the hard top by prad 4x4 and you will enjoy driving thar, If possible wait for new version which will come with bs 6 engine and bit more safety features

    Mahindra Thar, the one what I have is the initially launched one in 2014, BS 3 complaint one. As we use it a Coorg its a beast made for the roads and off road capabilities there. Maintenance is nothing much. Proper riding, proper fuel,oil and air to be maintained and it will run well with no much issues. Haven't used 4/4 till now, but till now we never regretted that we bought this vehicle. Absolute Gem on road to drive. Thanks Mahindra.

    Strictly a second car, one cannot live with a Thar as a primary vehicle.Man's seeks pleasure in the weirdest of things, absolutely fallen for the looks , the stock off-road capability (modified even better) . Very useful if you own a farm/ranch.
