Ever since Mahindra launched the Thar, the waiting period for the SUV has been high due to demand. Not just the Thar, the waiting period for the XUV 700 and Scorpio-N has always been high.
The waiting period is no different for the newly launched Thar 2WD. As per our local dealership, the waiting period for the diesel variant of the Thar is up to 72-74 weeks and 3-5 weeks for the petrol counterpart. Talking about the 4×4, it has up to 12-13 weeks for both Petrol and diesel variants.
Talking about the engine, the 4×2 diesel Thar is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine which puts out 117 bhp power and 300 Nm torque. Talking about the petrol variant, it gets the same 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine which puts out 150 bhp power and 320 Nm torque.
In terms of features, it gets a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, electrically adjustable outside rear-view mirrors, cruise control and LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). The 4WD variant now comes with an advanced electronic brake locking differential, which kicks in more aggressively. Developed in collaboration with Bosch, it will allow off-road enthusiasts to tackle low traction situations with more ease, says Mahindra.
The AX(O) RWD diesel with manual transmission (hard top) is priced at Rs 9.99 lakh. The Mahindra Thar 2WD gets two new colour options – Blazing Bronze and Everest White.
