The Mahindra Thar 5-door to be more luxurious

Mahindra Thar 5-door Specifications and Details

Mahindra & Mahindra is gearing up to launch the Mahindra Thar 5-door, likely to hit the market next year with greater opulence. Unlike its three-door counterpart, this larger Thar variant will feature a more upmarket interior, as suggested by recent spy images. The cabin enhancements suggest a luxurious touch, including a new multifunctional flat-bottom steering wheel that the XUV700 may have lent.

Mahindra Thar 5-door Interior

The interior gets a brown and black theme, accompanied by new armrests, and cup holders for added convenience and practicality. It is likely to feature a floating touchscreen infotainment system borrowed from the XUV700. This could be replacing the seven-inch unit in the three-door Thar and potentially offering wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Certain elements like HVAC control switches, seats, as well as door pads, may be carried over from the three-door Thar. The larger Thar will sit on a ladder frame chassis, potentially sharing it with the Scorpio N. This could result in a longer wheelbase and wheels pushed to the edges, creating more interior space.

The Mahindra Thar 5-door is likely to maintain similar performance figures to the three-door model. It will retain the 2.0L four-cylinder mStallion petrol and 2.2L four-cylinder mHawk diesel engines. These engines will come with a standard six-speed manual transmission, and an optional six-speed torque converter automatic unit will be available, providing power to all four wheels. Positioned above the five-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny, the Thar will offer an extensive range of variants and capabilities.

Pricing

The Mahindra Thar 5-door is likely to be priced between Rs. 15.00 Lakh and Rs. 16.00 Lakh, depending on the chosen variant. Mahindra expects to launch the extended Thar at a starting price of Rs 15 lakh. The anticipated launch date for the Thar 5-door is April 2024.
