Mahindra is testing the upcoming Thar extensively and as part of those tests, Thar has been spotted with heavy camouflage at various parts of the country many times. Mahindra will be most likely showcasing the new Thar in the upcoming Auto Expo which is scheduled to happen next month. Once again, Mahindra Thar has been spotted testing and this time around we have a clear video of how the interiors of the new Thar would look like.
The video has been uploaded by Automobile Enthusiast’s on their youtube channel. We have seen the Thar from the outside many times in the past but, this is one of the first time that we get to see the interiors of the new Thar. The video first shows the redesigned interiors of the Thar. From the video it is very clear that Mahindra has extensively worked on improving the look and feel of the cabin.

The infotainment screen is likely to support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The control switches for the infotainment screen is also seen in the video.

The all-new Thar will share its platform with the new Scorpio and will also borrow many other key attributes such as the body-on-ladder frame, engine, gearbox, four-wheel-drive transfer case, brakes. It is will also get alloy wheels.
The upcoming Thar is likely to be powered by a brand new 2.0L, 4-cylinder engine which will be BS6 compliant. The engine will produce around 140 Bhp which is a major upgrade from the current 105 Bhp 2.5L engine. The Thar will continue to get 4×4 and low-ratio transfer case. The upcoming Thar with all these changes will definitely be pricier than the current generation.
