Mahindra Thar overview
When it comes to Mahindra’s off-road range, the Thar is the leader of the pack. The special edition Thar Adventure Series boasts a wide selection of off-road accessories. With a variety of accessories to choose from, it’s easy to customise your vehicle to match your requirements precisely. The Adventure Series takes the impressive reputation of the 2.5 CRDe 4×4 SE up a notch with the inclusion of robust off-road features. The origins of the Mahindra Thar go all the way back to the Willys Jeep, which was released over 70 years ago.
From start to finish, every aspect of the Thar’s exterior is built to overcome any obstacle. Not only is its design highly functional, but it looks good too! The off-road bumpers take its capabilities up a notch while contributing to its distinctive aesthetics and the upward-angled sides of the front bumper are designed to reveal more of the tyre’s surface. This design enhances the Thar’s approach angle. Another highlight of the front bumpers is their built-in LED lights.
The mounting-point is perfect for off-road accessories, including a front tow bar. Take the hardy design of your Thar a step further with a set of robust rock sliders. At the back, the steel bumper boasts bold coloured recovery points as well as jack mounts. The integrated tow bar adds to the convenience and safety of pulling a trailer. Another functional addition to the latest Thar is its steel canopy. This vehicle’s bold stance on the road is completed by off-road ready alloy wheels. Opt for the Red Rage variation and turn heads wherever you go. Other colour choices include Rocky Beige and DSAT Silver.
While the Mahindra Thar is built to endure, it doesn’t compromise on comfort. Air conditioning helps to maintain a pleasant temperature inside the vehicle despite the exterior weather conditions. The manoeuverability of the Thar is increased by the addition of power steering. The front cupholders are a convenient feature of this model. It’s also fitted with a 12V power socket. With wide and comfortable front seats, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
The Mahindra Thar is equipped with a 2.5 CRDe four-cylinder turbodiesel engine, which delivers 78 kW of power at 3 800rpm. It has a peak torque of 247 Nm at 1 200 to 2 000rpm. The turning circle for this model is 5.75m and it has a wading depth of 500mm. Its approach angle is 44 degrees with a break-over angle of 30 degrees and departure angle of 27 degrees. The Thar features five forward gears with a Borg Warner 4×4 system as well as a low-range transfer case. Another noteworthy feature of the Thar is its mechanical differential lock at the back. Its auto-locking front hubs contribute to its exceptional off-road capabilities.
Durable leaf springs, as well as hydraulic shocks, are other noteworthy features of the Mahindra Thar. The price tag for this model is R293 999.
