Although in the video, the vlogger drives the diesel LX variant, the NVH levels were really impressive. The new Thar will receive its power from a 2.0-litre turbo petrol motor which can deliver 150 BHP against 320 Nm and a 2.2-litre diesel unit which is good for 130 BHP against 320 Nm. The transmission duties on both of the versions are undertaken by manual and automatic gearboxes.
