Its production is said to be ramped up from January to reduce the waiting period.
The Thar is available in two rooftop options now: a hardtop and a convertible soft top. The base-spec AX std and AX variants with side-facing seats have already been discontinued, as the 4-star safety rating of the Thar is only applicable to the variants with front-facing seats.
It comes with two engine options: a 2.0-litre petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel. The petrol engine puts out 150PS and up to 320Nm, while the diesel engine makes 130PS and 300Nm. Both the powertrains come paired with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
