2024 Mahindra Thar 5-door SUV looks production ready

Written by Kanad Kalasur

Mahindra has been working on the 5-door version of the Thar. Now, new images of the 5-door SUV have surfaced online. These images reveal that the SUV now looks production ready.

Mahindra Thar 5-door : More Details

From the spy images that we have seen so far, the 5-door Thar carries forward the design of the 3-door. The iconic shape as well as the road presence of the car is maintained. Infact, we can note that the 5-door Thar looks pretty muscular thank to the longer body.

The 5-door Thar continues to get elements like the round headlamps, squared wheel arches, and the boot lid mounted spare wheel. We can also make out that the rear doors will get a vertical handle mounted on the pillars. Mahindra could also offer a new alloy wheel along with the 5-door Thar.

Interiors of the Mahindra Thar 5-door

Thanks to a longer wheelbase, there is now much more space to work on the insides. This mean, Mahindra is likely to add some more features than the current Thar. This could include a front armrest, a sunglass holder and a new infotainment system that is compatible with the Indian carmaker’s AdrenoX software.

The second row is also going to be wider than the current car. This could make the Thar 5-door a five seater as opposed to the current four seater Thar. However, all the test mules that have been spotted sported individual seats at the back. Hence it is not yet clear if Mahindra will offer a bench seat option or go with only captain seats.

Powertrain options for the Mahindra Thar 5-door

Mahindra is likely to offer the same set of engines with the Thar 5-door. These will include the 1.5-litre diesel, the 2.2-litre diesel and a 2.0-litre turbo petrol. Transmission options would include 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic options. Mahindra is also planning to launch a 4×2 variant of the 5-door Thar which could enhance its reach in the market.
