One of the key factors in the Indian SUV market is road presence, and the Thar 5-door seems poised to make a statement.

The SUV will draw inspiration from the ScorpioN, noticeable in the steering wheel design. Furthermore, Mahindra may introduce new features like keyless entry and Alexa connectivity, similar to the Scorpion and XUV700 models. It’s possible that Mahindra might enhance the premium feel by offering Sony speakers.

Engine and Transmission

The Thar 5-door will likely come with two engine choices: the 2-litre Mstallion petrol engine and the 2.2-litre Mhawk diesel engine. While the 3-door version already offers the 2.2-litre diesel engine, the 5-door variant might get a more potent engine option. Mahindra is expected to provide both manual and torque converter transmission choices, catering to customers who seek fun and convenience. Additionally, it’s anticipated that both rear-wheel drive (RWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) versions will be available in the market.

In conclusion, the Mahindra Thar 5-door version is poised to bring practicality, enhanced features, and a powerful engine lineup to the Indian SUV market, potentially making a significant impact. Stay tuned for further updates as more spy shots reveal the exciting details of this eagerly awaited SUV.
