Three-door vs Five-door Mahindra Thar: Poll Results

Our Instagram poll tells us which version of the SUV have the people warmed up to


Thar fanboys are surely excited with Mahindra working on a more practical five-door version of the popular off-roader. The five-door SUV will be more capable and utilitarian than ever, despite retaining its off-road prowess and the charm of a jeep. 

That said, we wanted to know what our viewers like. To find out, we conducted a poll on Instagram, and here’s what the results say:


1,646 respondents participated in the poll, of which 1,179 preferred to wait for the 5-door Thar. We guess this sweeping win is courtesy of the extra practicality quotient of the upcoming larger off-roader. An additional set of doors will make ingress and egress easier. Besides, the longer wheelbase will also result in more space for the second-row and a larger boot. 


The five-door Thar could also pack climate control, rear power windows, a larger touchscreen with connected car tech, and LED headlights. Features likely to be carried over from the three-door SUV include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control, steering-mounted audio controls, and remote locking. 

Passenger safety features should include multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, electronic stability control, and tyre pressure monitoring. 


Both models will share the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines, but the five-door version will likely have more performance on tap. It should retain the standard 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed torque converter automatic. While it will be a four-wheel drive, a two-wheel-drive variant could also be introduced at a lower asking price. 


The five-door Thar should go on sale in 2023 at around Rs 14 lakh (ex-showroom). Its traditional rivals will include the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Jimny and Force Gurkha. But it will also be an alternative to the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, and Tata Harrier.
