Mahindra has been thoroughly testing the all-new Thar on our roads for quite some time. Recently the production ready version of the SUV was spotted and Mahindra also announced that they have delayed the launch of the new off roader due to the ongoing pandemic situation. Mahindra is now expected to launch the all-new Thar around October this year. The Thar has always been a 2-door SUV and here we have a render image that shows what the off roader would look like if it were to be launched as a 4-door SUV.
The images have been shared by IAB on their website. The 4-door version of Thar instantly reminds us of the Jeep Wrangler SUV. The side profile of the Thar is where major modifications or changes have been done by the artist. Because of the four door set up, Mahindra Thar now looks longer than the two door version. It still has the blacked out roof and the rear quarter glass has also been resized.
Coming to the front of the car, it gets, Mahindra Thar’s signature vertical slat grille, round headlamps and a redesigned bumper. The side fenders get clear lens turn indicators and the fog lamps are positioned on the front bumper. It is similar to the upcoming next-generation Mahindra Thar. The SUV looks more rugged and has an aggressive look to it.
The alloy wheels are also updated and we have seen pictures in the past where the production ready version had gloss black alloy wheels. The rendered image also gets Wrangler like massive ORVMs. The tail lights are also now LED units. The image does not show how it would look from the inside but, we guess that it will offer more space than the 2-door version as it is longer than before. This is just artist’s imagination and Mahindra has no plans of launching it as a 4-door SUV.
The upcoming Mahindra Thar is based on a new platform and is now longer and wider than before. Recently Mahindra had confirmed that the upcoming Thar will be available with an automatic transmission and spy video of a diesel automatic version has also surfaced online. The upcoming Mahindra Thar will be avaialable with a 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel diesel engine. It will also get a 2.0 litre mStallion turbocharged petrol engine and both petrol and diesel engine will be available with manual and automatic gearbox options.
