Technically a vehicle damaged in an event which are much more arduous than normal running is not covered. For that matter of fact even damages in MGE are
not covered. But as we all know here, M&M takes a slight lenient view on the warranty. So that should help any prospective buyer.

We already have 3 running threads on THAR, why was this thread not merged with the latter.
The hype is similarto what we have for Safari with multiple thread talking merlin, 2011 upgrade and what not.

I can't comment about infractions but there is no fanboyism as. Rather if you see the tone of the thread is more dissappointment and disillusionment.


P.S: As about Fanboyism, I'm still awaiting your reply to one of my clarifications to your comment on the Bolero Vs Sumo thread.

The THAR hype is blown out of proportions.

As far as your clarifications, SUMO is well refined than the Bolero, and i have answered the reasons for higher Bolero sales on that particular thread.

Atleast TATA's are delivering better Safari time and again.

This thread is just making a simple jeep with the erstwhile Willys chassis and a MM540 body shell and a scorpio engine. Bah..... C'mon guys i dont want an infraction for this

Yes its a good product, but for the price it will sell, it will have very little takers, whats the point in oooh.... aaaah....ing about such a product.

Its not my hatred for the product, but i cannot stand such kind of FANBOYISM ruling a T-BHP Thread, while these kind of off-topic replies would have been wiped off on other threads with a MODERATOR NOTE.

You dont need the Hitler show dissapointment over the Thar, it will not even come close to his approved Kubelwagen design in terms of practicality.

@Redlinre:

I agree with you a 101%. Tatas have offered 4x4 through out all engine variants of the Safari. It took Mahindra a gazillion years to launch the 4x4 variant of the mhawk Scorpio? Can someone explain to how much more testing you need to subject a Scorpio mhawk 4x4 when you already have a Scorpio CRDe 4x4? People may disagree, but I feel that Mahindra's sucess in the MUV/SUV space us purely due to the lack of commitment by Tata. If Tatas put the same effort into production/QA like Mahindra did, Mahindra won't stand a chance in the market against them.

@svsanthos: Your assumption makes sense for small bore/relatively high bhp engines like the Safari TCIC. The Safari TCIC makes about 68 bhp in NA form and 90 bhp in Turbo form. This engines depends a lot on Turbo for power/bhp and you feel a lag until the Turbo kicks in at about 2000 rp.

The Mahindra MDI3200/MDI3200TC engines have a trivial difference in power/torque. MDI32000 Turbo was never developed for power, but purely to help meet emission requirements. Have a look at the bhp/torque numbers of the DI Turbo and NA version and you will understand that in real world driving you will never really feel the Turbo. The MDI3200 comes with a 4.27 final drive and the MDI3200TC comes with a 3.27 final drive. I have switched to 4.27 final drive an don't feel any turbo lag and the Torque is good.

Pavan, may be you should read the thread. We are all beating up on Mahindra, not worshiping. The anticipation for Thar is so high only because there is nothing else available to meet that need. If Suzuki brings out the Jimny, most of us here will jump ship in a heart beat. That behavior hardly qualifies for fanboyism.

Best part is I will now get Bull bar and soft top for my MM55O with them soon...

Edit- The fit and finish was very good.. paint nice. A neat Job I must say. Gates closed with a light sound 'click' but the back door had the same trademark 55O problem. I tried several times but it remained in half closed position.

This 4x2 version is targeted mainly for the Major customers, taxies, departments etc. But overall I was happy to see it in place of Major.

Dear Yogesh, Thanks for posting pics and the literature. Good to see a neat & clean Thar which is ready for delivery for the first time.

Any idea when the MDI 4x4 verison is hitting the showrooms? And any idicators of price for that?

Also I am surprised to see,there are no M&M badges or decals anywhere on the body which says its a Mahindra Thar!! Any idea??

Thanks for sharing the pics & the official specs/ price with us.
That Thar with Classic like bullbar & alloys gives it a totally different look. But interiors are not that modern. I mean they are curvy.

Few questions please..
What will be the ex-sh price for 4WD version?
What was included in additional accessories which were quoted for 8.5K?
Will it be available with optional PS?
Ground clearance was quoted as 187mm only. May be because of small tyre radius?
Can we have it in Black color?

Did you take the test drive?

Sorry for such long list of questions but its THAR!! Officially Launched so that's a great news!!!

Hi, no confirmations on the price of MDI 4x4 version as off now. The price of 4x2 is in line with the earlier prices on Team Bhp, so I guess 4x4 would also be close to earlier price which was 5.1 lakhs.

He said that CRDe will come in next 6 to 7 days, which he was calling THAR, which will be officially launched by M&M as a new vehicle. By his words this MDI was Major replacement with BSIII standards, may be thats why no Thar badge..

Yes man its a Thar, thats why I rushed to the showroom just to have a quick look.. Waiting eagerly for the 4x4 to be here..

Answers:
No confirmation on the price of 4x4..
Sorry, I didn't asked..
CRDe has Power steering, didn't asked for option in MDI..
Yes, the tyres were too small, whole jeep looked very low due to that. With 7 50 x 16 it will go much higher..
No black color for the MDI 4x2 [thanks god] there'll be more color choice in the Thar.
No Test drive today. I had to come back to my office.. [a quick bunk]

We all know the body is 55O, but looking at a new one was totally different. The paint job is very good. Thick and glowing [not matt like Major]. Can take a lot of bush rubbing without damage. Metal sheet is thick as original 55O [old is gold]. Underbody was well crafted, much flatter than the current 55O. Interiors- very basic, not even AC blower.

Customers were asking how much is the price over major and the sales manager proudly saying it is almost same.. but 4x2 is of no use to us we want 4x4 soon..
