Mahindra Thar 2020 Launched check price for all models starting at 9.80 lakh. Mahindra is all set to launch the second-gen Thar in India today. The car was unveiled to us on Independence Day where the company revealed details regarding its powertrain, features and more. In its BS-VI avatar, the Thar will come with two engine options – a 2.0-litre mStallion TGDi Petrol engine and a 2.2-litre mHawk Diesel engine. These will be available with the choice of a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission and a 6-speed manual transmission mated to an authentic manual shift-on-the-fly 4×4 transfer case. Mahindra has also come out with roof options for the new Thar as it will be available as a Hard Top, a first-in-class Convertible Top and an optional Soft Top. On top of this, you can have the Mahindra Thar in two seating options – 4 front-facing seats and 2+4 side-facing seat configuration. The Thar will also come with cruise control, roof-mounted speakers and adventure statistics displays.
With prices starting from Rs 9.80 lakh (petrol, six seater soft top) to Rs 12.95 lakh (four seater hard top), the four-wheel drive model, available in both automatic and manual transmission, doesn’t have any direct competitor. But its pricing puts it in the league of mid-size and compact SUVs including the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport among others.
Available in three body styles – fixed soft-top, a cabriolet or convertible soft top and a fixed hard top, the model comes with two engine options – 2-litre petrol and a 2.2 litre diesel. The delivery of the models will commence from November. Designed and engineered in India and manufactured out of Mahindra’s Nashik Plant, the model will be available in six colours, namely – Red rage, Mystic copper, Galaxy grey, Napoli Black, rocky Beige and aquamarine.
“Over the years, the Thar has been a part of Mahindra’s rich history and has found its way into the hearts of many as an object of desire. On the occasion of the group’s 75th anniversary, we have written another chapter in its glorious history,” said Pawan Goenka, MD & CEO, Mahindra & Mahindra.
