The Mahindra Thar is arguably the best true 4x4 you can buy under 20 lakhs in India. If you want to modify your Thar, then Bimbra 4x4 is the go-to-choice. Take a look at these Thars modified by them.
The second-generation Mahindra Thar has been a trending topic of discussion, online or offline since it was launched last summer. It is one of the most successful vehicle launches in the Indian market in quite some time. Currently, you can’t get your hands on a brand-new Thar as waiting periods stretch till next year. Even though Mahindra has increased production by 50%, the automaker has stopped taking new bookings to keep waiting periods from stretching further. The 2020 Mahindra Thar is an all-new model, and it aims to be just as good at going off-road as its beloved predecessor, but also bring in new and modern features and much better on-road manners. Today we came across these three 2020 Thars which have been modified by Bimbra 4x4.
The video has been uploaded by Bunny Punia on YouTube in which we can see these 3 new Mahindra Thars, all differently modified. The first Thar gets an all-black paint job and the stock bumper has been binned for Bimbra’s off-road ones. The USP about these bumpers are unlike other aftermarket bumpers, these don’t affect the airbag sensors ability to function. The bumper additionally gets integrated fog lamps and Line-X coating while the front grille and headlights have been replaced as well. The stock tyres have been replaced with a set of BF Goodrich off-road tyres. The interior has been reupholstered in a shade of light brown, with the colour also being used on the dashboard and gear knobs.
The second Mahindra Thar belongs to Bimbra 4x4 themselves and is used as a project car to test all their modifications. This Thar gets an off-road bumper, LED headlamps, aftermarket grille, BF Goodrich tyres, and radio antenna. As it is a hardtop variant, it gets a coat of Line-X on the roof and a new manual sunroof has been added as well. The interior of this Mahindra Thar remains stock currently, but since it is a testbed expect Bimbra to make changes in the near future.
The third and last Mahindra Thar has been modified in a more road and urban-oriented way compared to the other two’s off-road centric mods. The stock 16-inch wheels of this Thar has been binned for these 22-inch multi-spoke alloys, giving the 4x4 a more premium look. Over to the interior, the Thar has been reupholstered in Nappa Red leather. The video states that the price of this interior modification will be around Rs 70,000 – Rs 1 lakh.
Prices for the new Mahindra Thar range between Rs 12.10 lakh – Rs 14.15 lakh, ex-showroom. Mahindra has actually hiked prices and also discontinued the launch base variants as no one was buying them. The new Thar comes with 2 engine options, a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel, and a 2-litre turbo-petrol. The oil-burner makes 130 PS/320 Nm of peak figures while the petrol makes 150 PS/320 Nm of max figures. Transmission options for both the powertrains are a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic with a low range box. You also get a transfer case and a mechanically locking centre differential for serious off-roading.
