Take a look at this accessorised example of the all-new Mahindra Thar in this video here.
Mahindra Thar is now in its second generation and is clocking high numbers on the sales chart. The new-gen Thar is receiving a lot of appreciation for the way it looks, the long feature list it comes with, and the overall accessibility that it now packs in. The last-gen model was referred to as a crude but capable vehicle. The new-gen model, however, is posher and plusher than its predecessor, while retaining its off-road capabilities. But, in case you think that the all-new Thar needs a little bit of correction here and there, Mahindra has plans for folks like you. There’s a whole bunch of OEM accessories that can be easily fixed on to a Thar and are available at dealerships itself. Here’s a video from VBO Life that we came across on YouTube, it showcases the same.
In the video, the host starts by a detailed walkaround the new-gen Thar. Later, he showcases the installation of accessories such as front grille cladding, front bumper cladding and air dam kit, while the car was already fitted with chrome door handles, and chrome applique for tail lamps, headlamps and fog lamps. Interestingly, all of these chrome-finished accessories are available in a piano-black theme as well. Also, one can choose to go with off-road centric fitments such as jerry can mounts, winch, auxiliary lamps and more. These add-ons would come handy when taking the all-new Thar off the road since it is a capable off-roader. It comes with a ground clearance of 225 mm, while the water wading depth stands at 650 mm.
Talking of powertrain, all-new Thar is available with two engine options – 2.0L turbo-petrol and 2.2L turbo-diesel. The petrol powerplant is capable of developing a peak power output of 150 Hp and max torque of 320 Nm. The oil burner, however, is capable of pushing out 130 Hp of peak power output and 300 Nm of max torque. There are two transmission options available on the new-gen Thar – 6-speed MT and 6-speed AT. Furthermore, there’s a BorgWarner 4X4 low-range transfer case available as a standard fitment along with a locking rear differential. The brake-locking front axle, however, is offered on the top-spec LX trim.
