July 23, 2015: The bullish Thar is here, with a completely redesigned face-lift and more rugged aesthetics.

The Thar’s recipe is simple - a robust chassis, a potent motor and four-wheel drive. The SUV isn’t something one buys to get to office and back. It serves a very specific purpose - having fun! The most affordable 4x4 in the country recently got a facelift. Does it manage to retain the Thar’s essence? Let’s find out!
Things We Like in Thar
Good to have creature comforts - air-conditioning, music system, 12V charger now available.
2.5-litre CRDe motor + 4x4 = go-anywhere! Among the most potent off-roaders in the country.
Things We Don't Like in Thar
Nervous on-tarmac manners. Choppy ride and fidgety steering means you are better off under 100kmph.
Quality of plastics in the interiors leave a lot to be desired.
Facelift has been given only to the high end CRDe trim. DI versions remains to be same with outdated styling.
Stand Out Features
Only one in its class to feature a mechanical locking rear-differential.
Shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive with a dedicated low-ratio makes getting out of sticky situations easier.
The Thar is named after a mountain goat - and it is exactly that. In case you want a cool Jeep to drive to office and back, look towards something more modern like a sub 4-metre compact SUV such as the Maruti Vitara Brezza or the Ford EcoSport.
"There’s nothing more value-for-money than the Mahindra Thar."
But, if you need nothing more than a four-wheel drive toy to help you muck about on the weekends, there’s nothing more value-for-money than the Mahindra Thar.
