Mahindra launched the all-new SUV Thar in the market last year. In comparison to the first generation Thar, the current generation SUV became popular among buyers in a very short span of time. The Mahindra Thar became so popular that currently, the waiting period on this SUV is almost an year. Mahindra Thar is currently the most affordable 4×4 SUV in the market and it currently has no direct competition in the segment. Aftermarket accessories and modifications are now available for Mahindra Thar and we have seen several examples of the same on internet. Here we have a Mahindra Thar where it is modified with a 22 inch alloy wheel.
The video has been uploaded by Ashish Yadav on his YouTube channel. The Mahindra Thar is actually a popular choice among SUV lovers. The owner of this Mahindra Thar has modified the SUV to make it looks more premium. We have seen several modifications in the past, where the Thar is modified to improve its off-road abilities.
Starting with the front, the stock headlamps on this Mahindra Thar has been replaced with aftermarket projector LED units. The original grille on the Mahindra Thar has also been replaced for an aftermarket unit. No modifications have been made to the bumper but, the fog lamps have been replaced for LED units. The SUV has been completely wrapped in PPF that protects it from minor scratches and helps the paint not fade away. It also adds a gloss to the original paint of the SUV.
The main modification on the outside however are the alloy wheels. It gets a chrome finished 22 inch aftermarket alloy wheels which completely change the overall look of the SUV. The wheels are wrapped with low profile tyres. The owner of the SUV mentioned that he has done similar type of modifications on other SUVs but, it always had some issues. Mahindra Thar on the other hand has faced no problems so far. The owner was very happy with the SUV. The only complaint he had with the SUV is that even the top-end variant comes with a key to open the petrol lid.
Inside, the Mahindra Thar gets ambient lights that can be controlled using a mobile application. The company fitted touchscreen on the Mahindra Thar has been replaced for a bigger aftermarket Android unit. The speaker setup on this Mahindra has also been replaced for better output. A sub woofer is also installed at the rear of the SUV. Damping has been done on the floor of this SUV. The modifications have definitely improved the looks of the SUV but, it definitely limits the off-road capabilities.
