The legend of the Mahindra Thar has been in the making for more than seventy years. The adventurer’s car of choice, it is the true successor to the MM540, Mahindra’s original all-terrain, come-what-may jeep since 1945.

With its classic body and contemporary features, the Mahindra Thar is tougher than you could imagine. Armed with the Borg Warner 4WD System that provides 2.48 crawl ratio in low-range, its traditionally high approach and departure angles (44º and 27º respectively), great overall clearance at 200mm, a new mechanical locking rear differential and auto locking hubs, you and your Mahindra Thar are ready to render the impossible possible.


The extended wheel arches and toughened front and rear bumpers accentuate the Mahindra Thar’s effortlessly rugged attitude while protecting the bodywork from any damage

The removable canvas canopy will immerse you in the natural world around you to experience the elements at close hand. Clear lens headlamps provide powerful light over any terrain.Side steps for easy access/egress

Factory fitted Air-conditioner and heater to keep you comfortable in n any conditions. Wide front seats to reduce the strain of driving over long distances.

Power steering makes manoeuvrability a breeze with a car-like turning circle of just 5.75m. Keep the interior organised and clutter-free with these convenient cup holders. A lockable glove compartment to keep your essentials safe from the wiles of nature. The 12V power outlet helps you keep all your outdoor accessories fully charged.

247Nm of torque at 1,800 – 2,000rpm, providing unmatched capability on any terrain.

The manual shift on fly 4WD with high and low ratio, along with the closely matched rations on the main gearbox enable the driver to maintain headway under most conditions.

The mechanical locking differential provides enhanced traction on loose and slippery surfaces without the need for pushbuttons, shift throws or other interventions.
