Here’s a walkaround video of the base model of new-gen Mahindra Thar. It derives power from a petrol and diesel engine.
Mahindra & Mahindra has finally launched the new-gen Thar in the Indian market. The 2020 model of the SUV looks quite identical to that of the Jeep Wrangler. It is offered at a starting price of Rs 9.80 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the entry-level AX trim and goes all the way up to Rs 13.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-spec LX variant. The automaker has already started accepting bookings and test drive of the car. As we all know that the top-spec trim of the 2020 Thar is offered with all the bells and whistles, but many people are still confused about the features offered with the base trim of the car. Here’s a recent YouTube video, which shows the base of the 2020 Thar from outside and inside.
