New Mahindra Thar Latest Updates

Next-Generation Mahindra Thar have recently surfaced online, and these are one of the first sightings of the upcoming off-road SUV. The current-generation has been present in the Indian market since 2010, and save for a minor facelift that was introduced in 2015, the SUV remains unchanged. However, now with the new-generation Thar, we now hope to see some considerable updates both outside as well as inside, along with some mechanical changes as well.

Mahindra has been testing the next generation of the Thar in India. The current-generation has been present in the Indian market since 2010, and save for a minor facelift that was introduced in 2015, the SUV remains unchanged. However, now with the new-generation Thar, we now hope to see some considerable updates both outside as well as inside, along with some mechanical changes as well. While there is no update on launch, this prototype still appears to be in the early stages of development, which means the production model is not likely to reveal itself before 2020. The new-gen Mahindra Thar is expected to be based on a new platform, to comply with upcoming safety and emission norms. And we can see that it has affected the SUVs dimensions as well.

The new Thar is wider, and possibly even longer than the outgoing model, however it continues to come in its 3-door format with the removable soft-top roof. While the extensive camouflage doesn't reveal much about the new design and styling, the signature traits carrier over from the current model includes the iconic Jeep-inspired 7-slat grille with round headlamps and the high-mounted wheel arches. Most of the exterior bits still appear to be temporary fitments, including the taillights. In fact, the SUV is also equipped with looks like an emission testing device at the back. We do not get to see the cabin in these latest images, however, we expect to see some considerable interior updates as well. Possibly an updated dashboard, new steering wheel, and improved safety features. The spy images also indicate that the new Thar might be getting an independent suspension at the front. It’s expected that the new engine it’ll come with be a 2-litre unit and will be BS6 compliant.

The new 2020 Mahindra Thar comes with an all-new black dashboard, which has a place for the touchscreen display. The position of the round central air-con vents is the same and they now get glossy black treatment. The dials below suggest an automatic climate control may be on offer as well. The 2020 Thar also gets a new steering wheel with buttons for audio and telephony controls along with a brand-new instrument cluster which now also comes with a MID (Multi Information Display) unit. The cabin will also get new seats with improved fabric upholstery, while at the rear it gets side-facing bench seats, which looks little more premium compared to the outgoing model. We expect the 2020 Mahindra Thar to get the BS 6 compliant engine version of Mahindra's 2.2-litre mHawk engine and not to mention, it will get the 4x4 Low (L) and High (H) function as standard.
