Mahindra Thar Signature Edition to host features which make the car comfortable and include safety features making the SUV a safer option.
Goodbyes are generally hard and so Mahindra & Mahindra will bid adieu to the first generation Thar. The Mahindra Thar Signature edition, a limited edition SUV, will stick to just 700 units. Let’s see what the limited edition has to offer in store.
Mahindra Thar Signature Edition Exteriors
The SUV will come with two new paint shades, Napoli Black and Aqua Marine. The SUV will sit on 15-inch five spoke alloy wheels. To make it as a limited edition, it will get a customised signature Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group on the fenders which will get a ‘Signature badge’. To make it look more rugged, the SUV will get black decals on the bonnet lid and silver finish on the bumper.
Finally, the Mahindra Thar Signature Edition will get front-facing rear seats which adds to more space in the SUV. It will also get newly design leather seat covers. These are the main highlights of the cabin which make it a limited edition than the on-going normal version.
Engine and Transmission
The limited edition Thar will source its power from 2.5 litre CRDe diesel engine and mated to 5-speed manual transmission. The power outputs of the limited edition SUV will be similar to the current gen Thar producing 105bhp and 250Nm of torque. Another engine which is the M2DICR has been discontinued by Mahindra which produced 63bhp with 195Nm of peak torque.
The limited edition of the Thar will get Anti-lock Braking system (ABS) of which the standard version is deprived of. The current Thar does not comply with India’s latest crash safety norms and will be stopped after October 1, 2019.
Second-gen Mahindra Thar
The second gen Thar has been spotted testing several times on Indian rounds which is why they are bidding goodbye to the current gen model. The new gen Thar might get a 120bhp or 140bhp diesel engine initially. After that, Mahindra is planning to add a petrol engine to Thar’s portfolio. We expect the newer generation will pack standard safety features, will be more refined and there will be lesser NVH levels.
Mahindra Thar gives direct competition to Force Gurkha in it’s price segment.
