Mahindra Thar facelift spotted testing
Mahindra has started testing the 2015 Mahindra Thar which will be launched in the country during the second half of 2015. The updated Thar is expected to come with updates to the interiors as well as exteriors.
Mahindra Thar was an instant hit amongst 4X4 enthusiasts when it was launched. It’s been a while since the car has been around, and the Force Gurkha (a more capable 4X4) was launched in its competition. Currently under a budget of 10 lakhs, these two are your only options if you want to purchase a 4X4 SUV.
A face lifted version of the Thar was spotted testing in Nasik, and a number of spy photos were leaked online. Due to the car being camouflaged, not all the design upgrades on the exterior were noticeable. Though what can be seen clearly is the new design on the wheel arches and an upgraded exhaust. The dashboard too seemed to be camouflaged, which means there will be significant upgrades in the interior as well.
The Mahindra Thar is currently powered by a 2.5L, 105bhp CRDe engine which produces 247 Nm of torque as well as a 2.5 Liter DI engine. Not much can be said, but we hope significant changes are made to the engine as well.
