Mahindra Thar 5-door – What’s New?

Mahindra Thar 5-door

The most evident design highlight of the Thar 5-door are the door handles. Upon looking closely, you can notice that rear door handles are not placed on the doors. In fact they have been positioned on the C-pillars as seen on cars like the Maruti Swift. The front grille is also different and gets an H-style pattern with split treatment. Also, if we look at the front windshield closely, we can see placement which could likely be for rain sensing wipers. The rear looks more or less the same as before but the production model could get a roof mounted spoiler with rear wiper tucked underneath.

Currently, Mahindra Thar lacks even some basic features like automatic climate control. However, the Thar 5-door could be loaded with features like any other Mahindra SUV. We can expect features like automatic climate control, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, wireless charging pad, rear AC vents, connected car technology & more. Also, as seen on the spy photos, the Thar 5-door will likely get a new 10.25-inch touchscreen system and Mahindra XUV700-like steering wheel.

With the added weight, the Thar 5-door will need a more powerful engine tune. It will continue with the 2.0-litre turbo petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engine. However, we expect power figures similar to the Scorpio-N. The petrol engine could be able to produce 200bhp and 370Nm of torque. While the diesel engine could be able to produce 172bhp and 370Nm of torque. Transmission options should include manual and automatic gearboxes. The Thar 5-door could come with 4×2 and 4×4 options.
