Mahindra Thar Review


The Thar is one of the most powerful and affordable Mahindra cars in India. The vehicle has always been appreciated for its brilliant off-roading capabilities, robust body-built and legendary jeep styling. It looks very rugged and masculine, and has commanding road presence. The interior design is very basic. It’s spacious, but isn’t comfortable. Seats lack under thigh support, and offer limited back rest support. Powering the Thar is a 105bhp, 2.5-litre CRDe turbocharged diesel motor and a 63bhp, 2.6-litre, MDI diesel engine. A 5-speed manual gearbox is the only available option. Both the engines are powerful, and deliver outstanding off-road and on-road performance. Handling is predictable and the ride gets bouncy on rough roads.

Further to this, read Mahindra Thar Road Test details by our expert.


The iconic jeep styling makes the Thar look attractive. Wearing an aggressive front-fascia with chrome treatment, it appears rugged and very masculine. The recessed headlamps, side steps, rear bumpers, rear footsteps and other styling elements add more to its exterior appeal.


The cabin of the car is quite spacious, but the material quality is a big letdown. The front seats are adjustable. The seats are well-cushioned, but lack under thigh support. The back rest support, too, is restricted. The driving position offers commanding road view. It gets instrument cluster, music player on console and few standard features.

Engine and Transmission

The vehicle is available in two diesel engine options - a 2.5-litre CRDe turbocharged and a 2.6-litre, MDI. The  2489cc, 2.5-litre, CRDe turbocharged engine produces a maximum power of 105bhp at 3800rpm with a peak torque of 247Nm at 1800rpm. The 2523cc, 2.6-litre MDI mill churns out 63bhp with 182.5Nm between 1500rpm - 1800rpm. Both the engines are mated with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Performance and Handling

The off-road capability of the car is outstanding, and the on-road performance is decent, too. It’s is one of the most fun-to-drive Mahindra car models that accelerates 0-100kmph in 17 seconds, while the DI engine version takes 19.5 seconds. It has an electronic speed limit of 155kmph. The engine is extremely powerful, and barely audible. The agile suspension absorbs bumps and jerks so well, and aids to its ride quality. The steering is responsive, and handling is balanced.

Braking System

Equipped with the front disc brakes and rear drum brakes, the vehicle ensures a confidence-inspiring and safe drive. The DI variant gets a dual hydraulic circuit with the tandem master cylinder, while the CRDe version features LCRV braking system that enhance their braking capabilities.


The 2498 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 11 kmpl in city and 13 kmpl on highways.

Safety Features

The vehicle is barely equipped with safety features. It gets an engine immobilizer, side impact beams, front impact beams and passenger side rear view mirror.


The Thar is one of the most powerful, practical and affordable Mahindra cars in India. With rugged jeep looks, robust body-built and off-roading capabilities, it makes a perfect pick for enthusiasts.


The Maruti Suzuki Gypsy is the closest competitor of the Mahindra Thar. The Thar has a rugged timeless design, while the Gypsy looks outdated with its conventional styling. Mahindra’s jeep offers more comfortable and well-equipped interior, though the design is very basic. It’s more powerful, frugal and better off-roader than the Gypsy.


  1. Retro jeep design
  2. Robust body built, engine and gearbox
  3. Effortless highway performance
  4. Off-roading capabilities


  1. Interior quality
  2. Impractical for day-to-day driving purpose
  3. Expensive repair
  4. Steering feel edgy over 100kph
