Mahindra Thar is a very popular SUV among off-road enthusiasts in India. The first generation SUV was commonly spotted in off-road events and was also an absolute favourite among those who loved modifying cars. We have seen numerous examples of modified last-gen Mahindra Thar in the past. This year, Mahindra launched the all-new Thar in the market and like last gen, it became an instant hit among the customers. Accessories for the new Thar have also started arriving in the market and we have already seen couple of them around us. Here we have Thar that gets a very unique paint job. What is unique about it? Let’s take a look at the video first.
The video has been uploaded by Tanish Tanishlohia on this youtube channel. As you saw in the video, the whole SUV has been repainted in white colour. Mahindra does not offer this colour with Thar. This new paint job has definitely enhanced the look of the car. The combination of white body paint with black vinyl stickers look great on the car. The front and rear bumper, wheel arches all have black colour. The gun metal grey finished stock alloy wheels are repainted in gloss back and that goes well with the overall look of the Thar.
The Thar seen in the video, is a 4-seater soft-top convertible version. The interiors are all black themed and looks absolutely good. Apart from the custom made paint job, the headlights on this Thar have also been modified. The regular halogen setup has been replaced with a projector LED unit with LED DRLs and turn indicator integrated in them.
Mahindra Thar is an extremely good looking SUV even in its stock form. The modifications have just taken it looks to the next level. The new paint job even reminds us on Jeep Rubicon from some angles. The all-new Mahindra Thar is a new vehicle in every sense. It is build on a new platform, which makes it wider and longer than the older version. It now offers a lot more space on the inside than before.
In terms of feature updates, all-new Thar was a huge improvement. It gets a company fitted hard top for the first time. Apart from that, it also offers drizzle proof touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple Carplay and Android Auto, roof mounted speakers, front facing rear seats and so on. The 4-seater version of the new Thar even scored 4 star rating at Global NCAP crash test.
Mahindra Thar is available with soft top, convertible soft top and hard top options. The soft top is only available with AX trims whereas the LX gets convertible soft top and hard top options. For the first time, Thar is available with a petrol engine as well. The petrol version is powered by a BS6 compliant 2.0 litre mStallion turbo petrol engine that generates 150 Bhp and 320 Nm of torque. The diesel version is powered by 2.2 litre mHawk turbo diesel engine that generates 130 Bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel versions are available with manual and automatic gearbox options.
