Talking of strength and legacy, Mahindra Thar and Dara Singh are the names that strike our minds. While the former helped the Indian UV giant Mahindra carve its niche in the Indian market, the latter is loved for his stupendous wrestling career and a cameo in Ramayana as Lord Hanuman. However, now in 2020, second-gen of Mahindra Thar has arrived in the Indian market. Also, recently, the second-generation of Dara Singh - his son Vindu Dara Singh has got a black Mahindra Thar home. While pictures of Vindu Dara Singh were posted on social media, where he can be seen posing with the new-gen Mahindra Thar, here’s how the netizens reacted to them.
On the picture of Vindu Dara Singh with his latest possession, the all-new Mahindra Thar, netizens showcased their disappointments with the long-waiting period of the off-roader. The 2020 Mahindra Thar has managed to create a strong buzz around the Indian audience with its look and feature list. In the second-gen avatar, the Thar has grown up to a car which is practical and can be used as a daily driver. Therefore, Mahindra could manage to bag over 9,000 bookings for the all-new Thar within first five days after the launch.
Mahindra Thar now comes with a long list of features that includes cruise control, automatic climate control, multi-function steering wheel, forward-facing rear seats, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with satellite navigation and more. For the safety of occupants, it now gets dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, roll-over mitigation, electronic stability control, reverse parking sensors, tyre pressure monitoring system, seat belt alarm, and high-speed alerts.
There are two engine options to choose from – 2.0L turbo-petrol and 2.2L turbo-diesel. Both of these mills get a 4-cylinder layout. The petrol motor is capable of producing 150 HP of peak power and 320 Nm of max torque, whereas the oil burner puts out a rated power and torque output of 130 HP and 300 Nm, respectively. The Thar is available with two gearbox options – 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic (Aisin-sourced). It gets a 4X4 transfer case as standard along with a low-range gearbox and mechanically-locking rear differential. The brake-locking front axle, however, is offered in the range-topping trim only. The prices for Mahindra Thar start at Rs. 9.80 lakh and go up to Rs. 13.55 lakh.
