Indian carmaker Mahindra has officially confirmed that they’ll introduce the new-gen Thar in India, after the launch of Mahindra eKUV100 in the second quarter of 2020. One can expect Mahindra to launch the all-new Thar in April this year. Recently, Dr Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra and Mahindra Limited, confirmed that the new-gen Mahindra Thar will hit the Indian market after eKUV100. The carmaker has already revealed prices of the electric KUV, but they haven’t initiated the sales.
Instead of being a hardcore off-roading car, the upcoming new-gen Thar will be more like a comfort-oriented SUV. With these new changes, the carmaker will be able to target a wide range of audience, which can also use this SUV for everyday commutes. Mahindra and Mahindra Limited have been testing the new-gen Thar for a long time now. The soft-roof offered with the ongoing model will get replaced by a hard-top unit in the new model.
Outside, the SUV will feature 7-slat vertical grille along with fender-mounted side blinkers at the front, brick-shaped taillamps cluster, flat bonnet and conventional round headlamps up front. One can also expect some big changes on the inside of the new-gen Model. The carmaker will offer features like a touchscreen infotainment system, multifunction steering wheel, cruise control and automatic climate control. Moreover, the new-gen Thar will also employ a semi-digital instrument cluster, which consists of a dual-pod unit along with a MID display in the middle. Moreover, the all-new Mahindra off-roader will come fitted with some latest safety features.

The all-new SUV will get propelled by a new BS-VI compliant, 2.0-litre, diesel mill, which churns out 140 PS of power and 300 Nm of peak torque. The transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the four-wheel-drive system will be an optional package.
