Mahindra recently unveiled one of their much awaited SUV Thar in the Indian market. They have not launched it yet and will be launching it on 2 October 2020.The Thar has without any doubt become more updated and is even based on a new platform which makes it longer and wider than before. Even though it is still longer and wider, it is still offered as a 2 door SUV and Mahindra does not have any plans to launch a 5-soor version of the same as of now. One of the vehicles that Mahindra used to manufacturer in the 90’s was Armada and here we have a video that shows how the next-gen Armada might look like, if it were to be based on the all-new Thar.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their youtube channel. The video starts by simply increasing the length of the vehicle. Mahindra Armada was a 4-door SUV that was sold in the market. The length and the wheelbase of the Thar was increased to include third and fourth door for rear seat passengers. Mahindra Armada according to the render will now offer three rows of seats, and can easily accommodate 6 passengers.

Apart from increasing the wheelbase and including an additional row of seat nothing else has changed on the side profile. It still retains the hardtop that is seen the new Thar and even the alloy wheels are of the same design. The other modification or update that artist has done here is the front fascia. That has been completely revised and gets a new rectangle shaped LED units with a redesigned grille. The bumper, DRLs, turn indicators and fog lamps, all are the same as Mahindra Thar.
The all-new, 2020 Thar once officially launched will be available in AX and LX series or variants. The AX series gets convertible and fixed soft top option along with petrol and diesel engine option with manual transmission and the LX series gets hard top with both petrol and diesel engine option offered with an automatic transmission. The petrol version is powered by Mahindra’s new 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine from mStallion series and the diesel version uses a 2.2 litre turbo diesel mHawk unit. Both engines have been tuned to offer high torque across the rev range.
