Mahindra Thar is one of the most popular lifestyle SUVs in its segment. Based on customer requests and feedback from the market, Mahindra keeps making changes to the vehicle. This time, they have introduced a new color option for the Mahindra Thar. Mahindra is now offering the Deep Forest Green shade with the Mahindra Thar. This is the same shade that is offered with the Mahindra Scorpio N.

This green shade is not just offered in the Thar and Scorpio N, but in many more SUVs from the manufacturer. With the introduction of the new Deep Forest shade, Mahindra Thar is now available in a total of six shades: Red Rage, Deep Grey, Stealth Black, Everest White, and Desert Fury. The Desert Fury was introduced in the market last year.

As we already know, a civilian vehicle cannot be painted in a shade of army green due to several reasons. Instead, manufacturers have come up with ways to please customers by offering shades of green that are slightly different from army green. In this case, the green shade looks good with the SUV and is expected to gain a lot of attention.

The current generation Mahindra Thar was launched in 2020. It was initially offered as a 4×4 SUV only. It became so popular that there were long waiting periods for the SUV. It was, in fact, one of the most affordable 4×4 SUVs one could buy in India. Last year in January, Mahindra launched the 4×2 variant of the Mahindra Thar. This made more sense for those buyers who wanted a car with a rugged look but did not need a proper 4×4 vehicle.

The Mahindra Thar is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol 4×4 version of the SUV is powered by a 2.0-liter mStallion turbocharged engine that generates 150 PS and 320 Nm of peak torque.

The diesel 4×4 version of the SUV uses a 2.2-liter mHawk turbocharged engine that generates 130 PS and 320 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel 4×4 variants of the Mahindra Thar come with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission options.

The Mahindra Thar 4×2 or the RWD variant is also offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. While the petrol engine remains the same as in the 4×4 version, the diesel engine used in the Thar 4×2 is smaller. It uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged diesel engine that generates 116 Bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. Only the petrol variant gets an automatic transmission in this case.

Mahindra Thar 5-Door

The price for a brand new Mahindra Thar starts at Rs 11.35 lakh, ex-showroom, and goes up to Rs 17.60 lakh, ex-showroom. One complaint that many people have with the Thar is that it is not a practical vehicle. It is a 3-door lifestyle SUV. Mahindra is working on resolving this complaint as well.

They are developing a bigger and more practical 5-door version of the Mahindra Thar. The SUV has been spotted testing several times and is expected to be launched later this year. The SUV will compete with the Force Gurkha 5-door, which was recently launched. The upcoming Mahindra Thar will be offered in both 4×4 and RWD versions.
