Next-gen Mahindra Thar spotted almost undisguised

A new image of the next generation Mahindra Thar has surfaced online. The test car was barely covered in any camouflage, giving us a better look at the production-spec Thar.

The new Thar is wider than its predecessor and looks a lot like the Jeep Wrangler. The SUV also retains its traditional design featuring a typical seven slat grille and circular headlamps and flared wheel arches. The test car seen in this image has circular fog lamps positioned on the front bumper and pilot lights on the front fenders. It is also equipped with side steps and is riding on 5-spoke alloy wheels.

The new Thar will get soft top and hard top options. On the inside, it gets a redesigned dashboard with circular air-con vents and a new centre fascia that houses a touchscreen infotainment system. It could also get front-facing rear seats.

The Thar could be powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion petrol engine producing 187 BHP and 380 Nm and a 138 BHP 2.2-litre diesel engine. Transmission options might include an automatic and a 6-speed manual. A diesel AT variant has also been spied testing.

The next generation Thar will be unveiled on August 15, 2020.
