Mahindra and Mahindra Thar

Mahindra and Mahindra Thar available in 3 variants

One of the India’s largest utility car makers, Mahindra and Mahindra has got a good success with its rugged Thar SUV. The car has been around for now 8 years and the company has made regular changes and updates in order to keep the interest of customers alive. That said, the changes are purely cosmetic in nature and the overall mechanical hardware has remained the same in line with the butch feel of the car.

The changes on the exterior come in the form of a new bumper which minimises to the gap that existed in the earlier version but now Mahindra has to remove according to the new regulation promulgated by CMV. Another important alteration that the company has made is with the fenders vision of scooped out in order to accommodate extra large tires and the rough maneuvering. The foldable roof is also new and thankfully now it comes with increased precision and high-quality material which is a welcome change from the house of Mahindra. The changes also applied to the wiper setting which has now got new linkages helping in the enhanced life of the motor and wiper. Inside the cabin, things have improved by a considerable margin and the credit must go to the dual-tone interior Mahindra has finally thought to put in the new Thar. The glove box has now got a lockable key which not only makes it look nicer but also lends it a functional feel. Mahindra has also improved the convenience of seats and if we are not mistaken, these seats are from the old Scorpio model. The instrument panel has also changed and now feel much nicer thanks to the backlight illuminating it quite well. It is good to notice that Mahindra has changed almost all the interior including the dashboard which now sits higher up in the cabin. The position of the steering wheel has also been changed in the interest of driver visibility and the results are clearly evident right from the moment you sit on the driver seat. We felt that Steering Wheel has been left towards the right-side unlike the previous model which has got it slightly on the left. That said Mahindra has missed out on the opportunity to further improve the ergonomics of the driving position as it still feels like commercial vehicle especially with the rate Steering Wheel and high set control pedals. The biggest change, however, comes in the form of use of high-quality material which is sure to be appreciated by prospective buyers of Mahindra Thar. It is now better to live with the Mahindra Thar on the everyday basis and you will not feel perturbed or grumble about its quality daily. Under the Hood, the Mahindra Thar continues with 2.5-liter common rail direct injection turbocharged diesel engine capable of putting out 105 PS more than enough in order to tackle the conditions road will throw on you. What has however made a difference is the addition of Differential lock which now makes a minute or even more capable off-roader. You can select the high-low more depending upon the situation you come across and this differential lock has really made quite a difference in the way it crosses the obstacles. The positioning of four wheel gear lever is awkward and it will require some effort to slot in into the desired position. We are also not very happy with the 5-speed manual gearbox which required directional effort to slot in the right gears and provide you inconsistent feel in terms of overall change mechanism. There is no doubt that Mahindra Thar is still one of the most capable off roader and it proves its mettle it approaches and takes the way forward. Mahindra has really improved it over the period of time and now it has become even more precise and capable.

There has never been a time when we doubted the 4X4 capabilities of the Thar with the introduction of the new model which comes loaded with features and also improved the quality, it has become easier to live with the Mahindra Thar. One will not be grudging about the everyday transport in this capable of off-roader which until now had been reserved only for the adventurous outings. Whether you should buy it or not totally depend on your personal preference for living with some quality compromises and more importantly, a bit of the driving inconvenience. One thing is sure you will not be getting as capable off-roader as Mahindra Thar in the present time as this is only 4X4 capable of rural which is also affordable to buy. It has qualities of all rugged SUV and you can go out on any adventurous trip without worrying about its mechanical breakage. It will take all in its stride without Breaking the Sweat and that quality makes it rank higher on the off road capability and ruggedness. It's Indian is powerful and has all the grant to take you through the places but yes we have found some inconvenience with the gearbox. But that is also momentarily and as you get yourself acquainted with the whole mechanism, you will come around and start comfortably using the combination of a transmission system and the engine. We are happy to inform a considerable upgrade in the quality which was the key concern with older Thar.  Also a suggestion for the Mahindra and Mahindra that along with the diesel engine company now should also start focusing on the petrol power plants. This is socially relevant in the coming scenario we are so much emphasis is placed on the emission norms and it will increasingly become difficult for the organizations to produce refined and environment-friendly diesel engines in the wake of tightening emission norms. Even if they are able to achieve it will result in the higher cost which will, in turn, make the car prices shoot up, resulting in making these cars pricier than what they cost today. In fact, Mahindra has announced that by the year 2019 they are going to equip their entire model with the petrol power plants which is the really a good news for petrol heads and auto enthusiasts.
