Mahindra Thar was one of the most awaited car launches of this year. It is one of the most discussed topics on the internet in the last couple of months too. Mahindra has officially announced the prices for the all-new Thar earlier this month and the bookings have also started for the same. Mahindra Thar is an iconic SUV and has cult following among those who love off-roading. All-new Thar has improved a lot in comparison to the older version. Here we have a video that shows what all has changed in the new Thar in comparison to the older one.
The video has been uploaded by SENVLOG on their youtube channel. The video starts by showing the exterior of both old and new gen Thar. The main difference at the front is that the new Thar has grown in size and is now more wider than before. It gets an entirely different front grille, round headlamp, turn indicators and DRLs. The front bumper on the old Thar was metal whereas the new Thar gets plastic bumper to meet pedestrian safety norms.
Moving to the side profile, the old Thar used to come with 16 inch metal wheels with caps whereas the higher trims of the Thar gets 18 inch gun metal grey alloy wheels. The vlogger was using the convertible version of the new Thar which is a new addition. The old Thar used to come with soft top only. The new Thar gets soft top, convertible and hard top roof from the factory itself. The new gen Thar is longer than the older version which means it offers more space on the inside.
The new Thar gets LED tail lamps and a door mounted 18 inch spare alloy wheel at the rear and there are rear parking sensors on the bumper too. On the inside, there is a huge improvement in terms of fit and finish and the quality of the panels in the new Thar. It now gets a touchscreen infotainment screen, roof mounted speakers, front facing seats and so on.
The older version was very raw and was solely suitable for off-road expeditions. The new one feels more composed on road and the ride quality has improved a lot as well. The SUV feels a lot more spacious on the inside and the driving part has also improved a lot. Mahindra has definitely done a great job with the all-new Thar as it is now more road friendly and feature rich without compromising on its off-road abilities.
Mahindra has received an overwhelming response for the new Thar, and the company has logged over 20,000 bookings in less than a month of launch. The all-new Thar’s AX variants are now sold out for the time being and the automaker is only taking bookings for the higher LX trims. Waiting periods for the all-new Thar stretch between 5-7 months. To reduce waiting times, Mahindra will increase production of the Thar by a full 50 % from January 2020. Currently, monthly production of the Thar stands at 2,000 units, which will be soon boosted to 3,000 units.
