The Mahindra Thar is now priced from Rs 13.59 lakh (ex-showroom) and is only available in three trim options for buyers
The Mahindra Thar is currently one of the most iconic lifestyle vehicles in the country and is celebrating its second anniversary in the country. With an average waiting period of around 6 months, the new Thar still continues to be in popular demand and offers an extremely capable and powerful package for buyers looking for a tough off-roader. In the last two years, the brand has significantly increased the price of this SUV while many updates too were introduced to make it an even better SUV for buyers.
For starters, the Thar petrol is now only available in three variants – AX(O) Convertible, LX Convertible, and LX Hard Top. For a quick comparison, six iterations of the Thar petrol were on sale at the time of the launch – AX Std, AX Fixed Soft Top, AX(O) Convertible, AX(O) Hard Top, LX Convertible, and LX Hard Top.
Those opting for the diesel engine on the other hand will be offered with four trim options – AX(O) Convertible, AX(O) Hard Top, LX Convertible, and LX Hard Top. The AX Fixed Soft Top variant has now been discontinued by the brand. Mentioned below in a detailed price list of the new Thar.
