In the latest video, Australian YouTubers get a tour of the Mahindra factory where the 5-door Thar is in the works. Recently, Mahindra invited a bunch of car experts from Down Under to the Mahindra SUV Proving Track (MSPT) in Cheyyar, Tamil Nadu. The 5-door Thar has been spotted testing in India on multiple occasions now. However, it always wears a heavy camouflage. There is a lot of excitement around the more practical version of the Thar among car enthusiasts in India. Let us take a look at the details of this SUV.
Australian YouTubers Show 5-Door Mahindra Thar
This video comes from aristocar on YouTube. The vlogger reacts to the Australian YouTubers reviewing the production facility and off-road testing of the Mahindra SUVs. While roaming around the factory, the Australian media personnel got a glimpse of the 5-door Thar and its components. For instance, the entire dashboard layout of the 5-door Thar is visible. It will most likely possess a dual-tone colour scheme. Also, the driver’s instrument cluster is slightly different. Additionally, one could also see that the space for the touchscreen infotainment display is large.
There are minor differences in the AC vent designs too. It looks like Mahindra is adopting some techniques to set it apart from the 3-door version. In essence, the Indian auto giant is trying to make this model more suitable for family usage. Hence, a more subtle colour pattern, a bigger touchscreen, a new design for the dashboard, etc. are some elements which will ensure that the off-roading SUV has a wider reach. Apart from that, we don’t expect it to carry any major changes to the powertrains and mechanicals.
