The new-generation Mahindra Thar has been spied on test on few occasions. The new Thar will feature a longer and wider body compared as compared to the outgoing model. As seen in spied images, the new Mahindra Thar will retain the Jeep CJ-5-inspired design with a wider seven-slot grille and a more prominent front bumper. The SUV is expected to be underpinned by a new chassis that will help the car meet upcoming safety regulations.
Mechanically, the new Thar is expected to be powered by a new 2.0-litre BS-VI compliant diesel motor that will replace the existing powertrains. The engine will be mated to a low-range six-speed gearbox along with a four-wheel drivetrain. It is also likely to get a mechanical locking differential at the rear. In terms of safety the Thar will also receive standard safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors, speed alert system and seat belt reminder.
As for the interior, the new Thar will feature modern interiors with an all-new dashboard. Moreover, the SUV will receive a twin-pod instrument cluster with a large MID, while the air-con control switches and the seats are all-new as well.
