Mahindra Thar is preparing for the upcoming BS6 emission and Indian safety norms. The spied model is probably the Next-Gen Mahindra Thar with upgrades to its design for the first time. The difference that everybody understands from the first look is the width of the new Thar, creating a Hummer-like experience with an extra-wide body and missing front and rear styling parts. The bumpers will definitely make into the production version as exposed tyres and missing protectors on both the ends create a hazardous situation for the pedestrians on the front and fellow drivers as well as riders at the rear.
The front comes with twin round headlamps and a wider than ever grille, retaining the seven iconic slats that are shorter in length. The grille is completely redesigned and may feel even better when the bumper comes into action on the upcoming Thar. The car comes with wide front fenders that can support bigger tires in comparison to the present generation Thar. These features are very useful in off-road driving conditions as more grip is available for the effective system to take on rough surfaces with ease. The rear section is available with a canopy on the spied model of 2020 Mahindra Thar.
Mahindra is expected to make huge changes to the interior, offering segment-leading features like infotainment system with navigation, better materials and more room for the rear passengers. The new Thar is seen without a tailgate-mounted rear wheel in its testing phase. Mahindra Thar is currently using a 2498cc, four-cylinder diesel engine producing 105 BHP of power and 247 Nm of torque. The engine may not be used on the new version, most probably due to the availability of a smaller 1.5L motor on the Marazzo that brings a reduction in emissions and is also more powerful with 300 Nm of solid torque.
