This is how the next-gen Mahindra Thar looks like (Rendering)
There is a new rendering of next generation Mahindra Thar which is making rounds across the Internet. The Mahindra Thar rendering which you can see is a fan made one and not an official rendering from Mahindra. The rendering however does not reveal the seven vertical slats which is actually the Mahindra signature. This design of Mahindra Thar looks pretty appealing and it is actually a blend of both modern as well as retro looks. The front griller which you see in the given Mahindra Thar reminds of Ford embossing on the F150.
We had already reported that Mahindra Thar would be bringing a 1.5 litre engine by 2018. The all new Mahindra Thar is going to be a complete departure from the current model. The all new Mahindra Thar would be based on new platform, that will be actually a derivative of their new generation ladder frames.
Thar has been a great performer for Mahindra, as it target 2 distinct markets with its both DI as well as CRDe version. Earlier, Mahindra had launched the facelift version of Thar (in 2015), where it added several upgrades to enhance its interior looks as well as few exterior tweaks.
With the adventure driving sport catching up in India, Mahindra is going to further strengthen their position in this genre and offer a modern product to its long term customers and they are also going to attract new customers in to the Mahindra family.
The next generation Mahindra Thar is expected to get all-new 1.5 litre engine which will be derived from Mahindra’s very own mHawk engine. Thar’s new engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 100bhp and 240Nm of peak torque.
The next generation Mahindra Thar is also expected to get Airbags and ABS (Anti-lock braking system).
