Next-Gen Thar Will Launch Soon!
Previously, Goenka had said that the arrival of the next-gen Thar will take place only after the eKUV100. The prices of the eKUV100 have already been revealed but the sales are yet to start.
The dealer sources have hinted to HT Auto that the next-gen Mahindra Thar will arrive by the April second week. The vehicle will also be available for display/test drive at the select Mahindra dealerships later in April. Its pre-bookings may start from as soon as April first week, or before.
Expected Specs of the Next-Gen Thar!
The next-gen Thar is set to transform into a new vehicle altogether. It will be seen in a fresh and much more beefy looking stance but will retain its iconic old-school off-roader look. It is expected to grow slightly in terms of width and overall size but design elements like the circular headlamps, seven-slot vertical grille, front fender-mounted turn indicators, wide and flat bonnet, side-hinged tailgate and brick-shaped tail lights will remain the same.
While the aesthetics will go through major changes, the cabin too will be drastically different from the first-gen model. The next-gen Thar will be a more comfort-oriented vehicle so significantly rich features are expected. It may come armed with bits like a large touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control system, multifunction steering wheel and cruise control. For convenience and safety of passengers in the second row it will also employ front-facing rear-seats.
The car will most likely use a 2.0-litre diesel engine. This unit will produce 140 PS of maximum power and 300 Nm of peak torque. A 6-speed manual transmission will be standard and a four-wheel drive system will be offered as optional.
