The Thar offers 18-inch tyres and slightly longer wheelbase compared to the older-generation model.

The all-new Mahindra Thar sits higher than the older Thar, which gives a commanding view of the road ahead. The suspension has been redesigned completely too and it is much more capable on the off-road tracks now.
