This is the third hike in 2021, and the biggest for the Thar to date

  • Mahindra has hiked the prices of the Thar by up to Rs 92,000.

  • The diesel-powered LX (MT) gets the least increment of Rs 42,000.

  • The Thar is powered by 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines.

  • It is now priced between Rs 12.78 lakh and Rs 15.08 lakh (ex-showroom).

Mahindra has really gone to town on the Thar. The off-roader has been in much demand, resulting in a waiting period of up to a year. The carmaker has now hiked the prices of the SUV for the third time since its launch in October 2020. The previous two price hikes made the SUV dearer by up to Rs 40,000. 

Here’s a look at the revised variant-wise pricing:

While bookings for the base-spec AX variants were halted briefly, the latest price chart does feature them again, hinting at a possible return. Of all the variants, the diesel LX (manual) has got the least hike of Rs 42,000.
