Can the all-new, 2020 Mahindra Thar comfortably jump a kerb? [Video]

Mahindra recently launched the all new Thar in the market with an impressive price tag. It has been one of the most anticipated launches of this year. Prices for Mahindra Thar now starts at Rs 9.8 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 13.75 lakh, ex-showroom. Mahindra Thar is a proper 4×4 SUV that has huge fanbase and a cult following in the off-road community. The new gen Thar does not compromise on the off-road abilities and offers more features than its earlier version. Here we have a video that shows how a Mahindra Thar comfortably gets onto the median and even comes down smoothly.

The video has been Musafir Aka Joshi on his youtube channel. The video starts with vlogger who has taken the new Mahindra Thar for a spin. He is immediately impressed with the commanding seating position and the interior quality of the new SUV. He even asks some of the other passengers about the performance of the AC and even then were satisfied. The vlogger was driving the top-end LX trim which comes with a hard top.

The vlogger was impressed with the ride quality and even mentions that the build quality of the Thar has improved by a lot. The gear shifts were very smooth in comparison to the older version. Then the vlogger stops on the shoulder and starts demonstrating how smoothly does the SUV climb on the footpath. The car gets on the footpath without any effort and the passenger sitting at the rear says that it felt like the Thar just went across a small hump.

Vlogger now smoothly brings the SUV down as well. driving across a kerb is actually ok if done at low speed. If the driver does the same at higher speeds there are chances that the suspension will be damaged. If the car is at higher speed when it hits the kerb, there are chances that the car might rollover if the angle is wrong. One of the other dangers involved if a lower speed is not maintained is that the tyre might get burst and the alloys would get damaged as well.

Mahindra Thar is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol version gets 2.0 litre turbocharged unit whereas the diesel version gets a 2.2 litre turbocharged unit. Both petrol and diesel and available with manual and automatic gearbox option and a proper 4×4 transfer case.
