The upcoming next generation Mahindra Thar will get an all-new diesel engine as well as better dynamics.
Mahindra will launch the new generation Thar in 2020. This generation will be a major leap up from the current generation and it will come with significant changes to the exteriors, interiors, engine and driving dynamics.
While not much can be said about the exteriors, the new Thar is expected to be better loaded in terms of features and safety equipment. It will also offer better comfort. The SUV will be tuned in a way that it performs much better on the road.
Under the hood of the new Mahindra Thar will be a brand new 2.0-litre diesel engine which is likely to produce 140 HP and 320 Nm. This engine will also power the next generation XUV500 in a higher state of tune. The Thar, in the future, will also get a more powerful variant.
Underpinning the 2020 Mahindra Thar will be the Gen3 platform which the current Scorpio uses. The Thar will handle much better and the suspension will also be tuned nicely. The vehicle will have a more modern feel too. Now this is one car which has got us really excited.
