Rough trips demand tough vehicles. That’s why the Brand New Mahindra Thar has been built on a rugged 3rd Generation chassis and tested extensively in some of the harshest terrain in India and across the world. It has an all-new suspension setup that delivers the impossible: better off-roading capability, as well as superior on-road handling and drive quality. The Brand New Mahindra Thar is also equipped with advanced off-road hardware that seriously improves its capability to go wherever and do whatever the driver demands of it.

The open-air experience of the All-New THAR is improved further by removable doors that are engineered for easy removal just by undoing three fasteners. With the Center console mounted Controls for the power windows and instrument panel mounted speakers, you can get rid of the doors with no compromise on entertainment or convenience. A quick release electrical coupler for the door wiring harness that can be stowed away makes the door removal process easy.
