Pros : sporty look

Cons : none

Look and Style: Mahindra Thar wears the traditional old fashioned looks which give it a classy look. The contemporary gipsy is given an edgy look with least of curves and delicate lines rather the crease on the body are so prominent and bold that it depicts great power. 

Comfort: The open back is a style statement since generations and with Mahindra Thar, it becomes more interesting as the seats are made more comfortable and lifted. 

Pickup: The Mahindra Thar is made available in diesel engine with a displacement of 2498cc that offers a very greater acceleration due to higher power and torque. The engine is packed with 5 speed manual transmission gearbox for effective distribution of power. 

Mileage: The 5 speed manual transmission gearbox offers a very good mileage of 9.5 kmpl in the city roads and 14 kmpl on the highways. 

Best Features: This look a like of Jeep, Mahindra Thar has a perfect blend of the classic and the contemporary. Its retro looks complement the modern technology i.e its CRDI engine, making it a class above from the others. 

Needs to improve: None 

Overall Experience: Good

    It is nice if Mahendra offer a fully loaded Thar with hard top, AT, A/C, stereo, nice dash board etc with all safey items for a modern Jeep?? The current Thar is just a jeep without anything upto the standard and only for the urban usage. Customer should have an option to choose the fully loaded one with higher price or the normal one as it is. best regards Thomas George

    I agree with Thomas George that there should be a FULLY LOADED option also as he said

    I think you need to be neutral while reporting from the ground zero. Look at the interior. The demo vehicles handle knob was brocken on the grounds that improper handling. the plastic looks as if moulded by hand in a 'gala' in bhiwandi/Kalyan. The seats are made to challenge your spine and the disk. You better have a strong lower back. The wiper looks like poor man's chopstics. The rolling windows, no music system, no aircon, man which era are we living in ? The accesories are exhorbitantly costed (77K INR). the parallaly aligned seats looks like you can give out the vehicle during week days to the taxi stand to the operator for making quick bucks to make up for your EMI(if any). It is a total 'Gross'. Look where the world is going and look where we stand. Unless the vehicle is made only for the rally enthusiasts. God rest Thar's soul in peace !!! Amen !!

    Its pretty average looking, uncomfortable car. And top of it, its absurdly priced.

    i wud just like compare it with some of our indian off road im sure tht it will win the heart of the pple who want to rock in offroads....even i too fall in the same bull shit.....

  • pankaj desai |28 Apr,2011 10:54:54 PM

    option should be given for long and short chassis like mahindra classic 340 base , power steering , disk brakes and in colours like Black,Red,White and Military green should a/c ready and without metal door but with detachable hood and door

  • vijay |01 Jun,2011 06:21:18 PM

    What i am not understanding is why you didnt see any cons in the vehicle? Or you are from mahindra to feel people.? Its a good car and its a very bad car too.....the worst thing is the poor workmanship (except engine and mechanism).

  • amer shaik |18 Jul,2011 03:50:26 PM

    its a gud off roader in our country..! i love to have it..!

  • CarDekho Team |18 Jul,2011 03:52:17 PM

    @ amer shaik - The Thar is the best true blue off roader that you can currently get in India.

  • Rahul Kundlas |08 Dec,2011 03:28:11 PM

    I had been fantasizing about this off-road beast since quite a long time. The engine & performance of this machine is truly what cannot be matched. But they need to work upon the quality of the interiors, like good seats,dashboard & wipers need to be transformed into something that looks good

  • karan |15 Jan,2012 05:31:08 PM

    nice vehicle but highly priced for low quality plastic and features. this vehicle must not be more than 5- 5.5 lacs for 4x4. this engine option must be availabe in mahindra major model so one can have a good open top jeep, if this comes in major model then i am ready to buy it on any price .
