Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Audi Q5

    • Gets a bit more of an identity thanks to a sportier design
    • A spacious and practical cabin, an ideal formula for family luxury
    • Decently specced feature list
    • Can be pushed or driven comfortably with ease
    • All-wheel drivetrain as standard

    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 Doesn’t feel crude or outdated to drive anymore.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 Q5

    • A petrol-only offering
    • Cabin could've had a little less hard plastics
    • Lack of advanced driver assistance features

    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
