Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Audi A6

    • A high-tech dashboard setup
    • Looks dominating on the road
    • Sweet handler

    Mahindra Thar

    • Attention grabbing design. Looks macho and has stronger road presence than ever before.
    • Available with petrol and diesel engines with a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions for both.
    • Design better suited for off-roading than before. Big improvements in departure angle, breakover angle and ground clearance.
    • More tech: Brake based differential locking system, auto locking rear mechanical differential, shift-on-the-fly 4x4 with low range, 7-inch touchscreen with off-road gauges, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay & navigation
    • Good quality interior with better practicality than before. The Thar is now more family friendly.
    • Improved noise vibration and harshness management. Doesn’t feel crude or outdated to drive anymore.
    • More configurations: Fixed soft top, fixed hardtop or convertible soft top, available as a 6- or 4- seater

    Audi A6

    • Only front-wheel drive
    • Misses out on flagship features
    • Rear seat experience is average

    Mahindra Thar

    • Stiff ride quality. Deals with bad roads well but sharp bumps can unsettle the cabin quite easily
    • Old school ladder frame SUV and behaves like one. Loads of body roll even on mild curves
    • Some cabin flaws: Rear windows aren’t openable, pedal box leaves no proper space to rest your left foot even in the automatic & thick B pillars create large blind spots to the side
    • It’s a heavily improved/polished version of a hardcore off-roader but not an alternative to more practical, comfortable, feature rich compact/sub compact SUVs
