Ever since its launch, Mahindra Thar has been a topic of interest for many. It was one of the most awaited launches from Mahindra last year and the response for the SUV is also overwhelming. Thar is so much in demand that it is already sold out till May 2021 and Mahindra has now increased the production to meet the demand. Mahindra Thar is currently the most affordable 4×4 SUV one can buy in India. The all-new Mahindra Thar is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. Several modification options are now available for Mahindra Thar in the market. If you feel that the new Thar needs a bit more power, there are options available for that as well.

New Delhi based, GT TunerZ have now developed an exclusive tuning option for Mahindra Thar Diesel which will increase the power and torque figures on the SUV. The tuners announced it on their Facebook page that, they now offer tuning options for the SUV. GT Tunerz mention it on their post that, they have been working on this system since the day, Thar got launched in the market. Mahindra Thar diesel is powered by a 2.2 litre mHawk turbocharged engine that generates 130 Bhp and 320 Nm of torque. The newly developed tuning option for Thar will increase the power and Thar will generate 160 Bhp and 360 Nm of peak torque. Which is 30 Bhp more power and 40 Nm more torque than the stock engine.

GTTunerz have also mentioned in the post that they are also working on a remap option for petrol variant as well and will be coming up with one in the market soon. This tuning option that GT Tunerz have developed for Thar diesel is exclusive as no other tuning garages have come up with such an option. Mahindra Thar 2020 is an all-new SUV in every aspect. It shares nothing with the older generation Thar except for the name. It is now wider and longer than the older generation Thar.

The design of the Thar looks a lot more matured. Earlier generation Thar was a good off-road SUV but, it was not a comfortable SUV on road. With the new Thar, Mahindra has improved that part and the new gen Thar is now comfortable both on-road and off it. It is now available with number of features for this first time. It gets a factory fitted hard top, soft top convertible option and alloy wheels. On the inside, the SUV gets features like drizzle resistant touchscreen infotainment screen and roof mounted speakers, front facing rear seats, multi function steering wheel, well cushioned seats, ABS, airbags and so on.

Mahindra Thar recently scored a 4 star rating at the Global NCAP crash test. It was available with both 6-seat and 4-seat option but, looking at the safety of passengers, Mahindra had discontinued the 6-seater option. Mahindra offered a petrol engine with the Thar for the first time as well. The SUV is powered by a 2.0 litre mStallion turbo petrol engine that generates 150 Bhp and 320 Nm of torque. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission option along 4×4 transfer case as standard across all variants.
