Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Audi Q7

    • Can seat a family of 7
    • Very comfortable ride quality
    • Well-insulated cabin
    • Material quality and dashboard layout feels premium
    • Refined engine improves drive experience

    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 Doesn’t feel crude or outdated to drive anymore.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 Q7

    • No diesel engine option
    • Looks understated
    • Misses on some must-have features such as ventilated seats and electric adjust for the steering wheel

    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

Must read articles before buying Audi Q7 and Mahindra Thar

  • Audi’s Q7 is finally back in India after a gap of nearly two years. It gets a new design, new interior and a change in powertrain. Does it still make sense to buy it or are you better off with its rivals?

    By RohitJan 19, 2022
  • The all-new Thar has been thoroughly impressive, both on and off tarmac. However, so far, it has only been compared to its predecessor. We pitch it against its urban sibling to see if it's any good for a family in the city.

    By NabeelFeb 12, 2021
  • From a face mask to a heavy-duty lift jack, there’s a lot you can deck out your Thar with
