Watch how a 2020 Mahindra Thar attempts an incredible jump over the ramp while off-roading in this article below.
2020 Mahindra Thar has created a massive hype among the Indian car enthusiasts for quite some time now. While the front grille design of the new Mahindra Thar received mixed comments, the brilliant performance of the new-gen Thar, on the roads or off it, is hard to deny. Recently, the 2020 Mahindra Thar has once again proved itself as an excellent off-roader by taking a nice big jump over a hillock with ease which has been recorded in a video. Check it out here.
It is a bit crazy, isn’t it? We’ve seen many amazing Mahindra Thar cars jumping like a bunny before but this scene is a lot more incredible. This video has gone viral on the Internet since yesterday. It shows a new Mahindra Thar 2020 taking a flying leap and landing on the field like a dune buggy.
The video was shot in a slo-mo format that shows us how spectacular the stunt is in an even better way. As the SUV hits the ramp, the independent front suspension absorbs the shock softly. As seen in the video, the Thar almost toppled to the left before landing safely on the field. The new Mahindra Thar continues to stay in shape after the impact and the driver continues to drive it forward. Seems like this particular action was done in order to take photographs only.
Meanwhile, here’s what the man who was involved in the 2020 Mahindra Thar jump shoot say about this big stunt,
“Attempting to jump the new Thar on the photographers request. Though it broke our heart to jump her like this, but amazingly the stock configuration Thar took it without anything breaking! Strong Machine!”
Having said that, the 2020 Mahindra Thar really excels in off-road situations. The new Thar is a great off-roader thanks to the electronic aids like traction control, hill hold control, hill descent control, and the brake-locking front differential. Also, the new Mahindra Thar comes with a 4x4 drivetrain system as standard together with a low-range transfer case. The new-gen Mahindra Thar even gets a water wading capacity of 650 mm with a ground clearance of 226 mm.
