The Mahindra Thar 5-door version is being tested. During testing, it was observed numerous times. The 5-door Thar is expected to have more space and new features than the current model. The current Mahindra Thar (3-door model) costs between Rs 13.59 Lakh and Rs 16.29 Lakh (ex-showroom). The new Thar 5-door could be priced similarly.
Spy photos of the Mahindra Thar 5-door indicate that it will have a removable metal or plastic hard top. Looking at the picture, it looks like it will have a longer length and a wider wheelbase than the 3-door model. The five-door model will also receive new alloy wheels, as well as stylish side steps with thicker spokes.
Mahindra may drop the soft-top option in favor of a metal or plastic hard top on the five-door Thar (detachable). The latest spy shots of the five-door Thar also revealed a handle on the A-pillar inside the cabin, which does not exist on the current Thar.
In terms of engine and power, the upcoming Mahindra Thar 5-door model may be similar to the current 3-door model. It is available with 2.0-litre mStallion turbo petrol and 2.2-litre mHawk turbodiesel engines.
The turbo petrol engine will be capable of 152 hp and 320 Nm of torque, while the turbo diesel engine will be capable of 132 hp and 320 Nm of torque.
The SUV could be available with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. It will be available in 4X4.
