The Mahindra Thar is set to receive a generation upgrade after 10 years, and the new-gen model will come with new styling and an array of modern equipment and features.

Today, on the 74th Independence Day, Mahindra & Mahindra has unveiled the new-generation model of the Mahindra Thar, and we have all the highlights for you here. The Thar off-road SUV has been one of the most iconic SUVs in India and it the successor to the Mahindra's popular MM540, and the spiritual decedent of the Made-in-India Willys Jeep, or as it was called in India, Mahindra 4x4. The Thar is set to receive a generation upgrade after 10 years, and the new-gen model will come with new styling and an array of modern equipment and features. The new Mahindra Thar has been in development for a few years now, we finally get to see it today. The new Thar will be launched on October 2, 2020.

As seen in several spy photos, visually, the Mahindra Thar will continue to come with a boxy design, featuring a long clam-shell bonnet, round headlamps, wide wheel arches and heavy-duty bumpers. The new Thar, for the first time, will also come with a factory-fitted hard-top roof, along with other features like LED daytime running lamps, alloy wheels, LED taillamps, and tailgate-mounted spare wheel.

The Mahindra Thar will come in both petrol and diesel engine option. While the diesel option gets the new BS6 compliant 2.2-litre mHawk engine, the petrol version gets the 2.0-litre turbocharged mStallion motor that was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. Both engines will come with a six-speed manual gearbox and the optional 6-speed torque converter. Thar will also get a mechanical four-wheel drive system with four-wheel low, four-wheel high and rear wheel drive modes. We expect it to get differential lock as well.
