^ That sums the regular jeeps around. LOL!

But how does that account for the Thar, which is speculated to be much much more a lifestyle vehicle to pull chicks in? Forget us, the lowly guys who want a better off-roader. We are not even on the map of Mahindra.

Hi DKG,

The Thar MDI is BS3 so its not for the metros, where BS4 is in fashion.
The Front & Rear Axles (51/51 Inches) are the Worst M&M produces currently, can be interpreted as Cheapest.

Regards,

Arka

PS - Still this is going to be the best-seller

While the guys over at the marketing department may have turned over a new leaf (spring), the chaps who screw the nuts and tighten the bolts are still the same, doing the same thing they've been doing for decades...

Cyrus these conversion shops are professional well engineered set up's run by great engineers, and they do this day in day out. All OE parts etc, its not that difficult either, if you have the money. So dont make point blank statements on things that you are not aware of. How do i know, coz i have lived with one in 1990's

And going offroad is not going to be extreme for everyone. Initially its more about this car taking people places which a family sedan can't. A small percentage of this breed of enthusiasts will/may eventually warm up to the potential of experiencing some more serious offroad fun, thanks to nationwide events like MGE and others.
100% yes, for a beginner who is more into adventure trail it is the PERFECT fit!

Again a 100% correct statement, and hence i really dont react to the comment that M&M is the savior of offroader statement!

It was just a cool vehicle to drive around town.
Unfortunately that % of women in India is around .002% I know coz none of the women folks in my family really appreciate jeep's, even though some of them are real outdoor's lovers. They still prefer an Innova to take them for even trecks!

For your use its ok, coz you are looking it as a 2nd or 3rd vehicle. But still i would suggest you to wait a lil longer for AC version to come. Have you driven a non AC Maruti 800 in our BLR summer? Just a thought.

This i am not sure, if technology can be incorporated comfort can definitely be increased, even with fixed axle. But at a cost!

This also i agree and i have the same doubts. Only time will tell and let me be very candid there are others who are also taking a wait and watch approach, though they are mesmerized by the Crde engine.

For the leh trips and some adventure safari, you need not wait to decide! Just go and book The Thar.

Definitely better than MM but not as good as Scorpio, since its heavier. Has its plus and minus actually compared to scorpio. One thing i would be vary and caution all the adopters would be the steering. Its super joy and sensitive to use inside the city, but the same can be quite unnerving on a high speed 6 lane. So careful, tame the vehicle before you push it beyond expectations.

Mdi is going to sell well, just give it to the mallu high range towns and they will consume more than what M&M can produce. Just because thats the kind of vehicle that can run without taking a breath, as a estate vehicle, as a people carrier or the plantation owner to the nearest club.

On a more serious (and less libelous) note, to be fair to the fairer sex, you can't really expect them to get excited about something like this:

Pretty soon the mfg's will stop listening as they will think you are impossible to please Ultimately your segment is too tiny and inconsequential Sharath. Its the market the Thar is intended to target which is the serious game here and I'm sure they will have a a/c hartop version soon for the "lifestylers" as you call it
Why is it impossible DKG? Take the Bolero SLX 4WD, put the Xylo D2 engine and change the wheelbase/entry-exit-angle to that of Thar. Voila! How much more will this add to the price to the Bolero SLX?

Why, Suzuki is able to give similar package in Jimny. I am not even thinking of Rubicon. I am a realist. I am only asking within the capability of M&M.

It is not really some more. 2WD can't be used in offroading. The power windows are not a must, a sturdier winding handle can suffice. The locking and seats were already covered by me. I am not asking for things that can be easily added by the owners.

Jeremy Clarkson is an entertainer, you can't really take his reviews seriously for purchase decisions. He is judging the offroading Jeep as a sedan/SUV user, which makes the whole point moot.

Okay here's the deal guys. Since I know where all the purists are coming from make a wishlist of parts you need, chassis, axles, engines (mhawk) included and come to Hyderabad. I'll try to get you everything brand new. I am not promising but someone I know said he'll get me anything I want brand new. I've already bought two chassis and two 1.8 litre petrol isuzu engines for future projects, a new front and rear, so I'm inclined to think he's not a bullshitter

So make yourself the dream offroaders from parts. Just do it, I'll help you by putting you onto this guy who is pretty confident of getting us new parts.

Not to forget this guy drives some of the most exotic cars on the planet on a daily basis, his bench-marks are definitely very different from ours.

For him all SUVs are boat-like (the Audi Q7 for example) for us the same cars are comfortable, solid, fast highway machines.

M&M should send across a Thar and see what he thinks of the ride and handling.

Jaggu the only reason why I mentioned the soild axle rule is a daft proposal when creature comforts and family concerns on stability are important is that for any wheel to efficiently track the ground at high speeds the unsprung weight needs to come down. Even on an aluminium case diff the weight of a new age solid axle will be far greater than a modern IFS. Its no contest guys, if you want supreme handling, dynamic safety at highway speeds IFS is the only way.

So you are coming to the offroading world taking care first of a major aspect in modern family buying criteria, of comfort and dynamic safety.

Then the question arises is the Thar a decent offroader when it delivers to a great extent on the comfort aspect on highways. The answer is yes.

A purist offroad enthusiast will always swear by solid axles and fully floating axles. But your average Thar customer is too far away from that world of extreme offroading.

You all know I love the CJ3B and delight in its offroad prowess. But I also appreciate where the Thar is coming from and what it will do for the fledging Indian offroad industry and sport. Its a fabulous shot in the arm. Atleast I believe it is.

Just give it a chance, a fair chance. Don't write it off purely based on specs.

I quite agree with you about Clarkson's reviews being more 'geared' towards entertainment, but I hardly think someone who has lived and breathed automobiles for 30-40 years would be so naive as to judge an offroading vehicle with the same yardstick as a sedan.

And contrary to what you might think (oh that guy only likes things which cost over a million pounds sterling and have the tag 'supercar' attached) he has been offroading. In fact he owns something called an Argocat with 8-wheel drive . Here it is, a jeep cherokee review from the man himself. Yes, it is quite entertaining!

Here's one more (he actually likes the Outlander, so there goes the theory that for him all SUV's are boat like). He actually opens this one with a few observations on the 'offroading community':

Quote:
Outlander 2.2 DI-DC Diamond

Look, mums Ė a 4x4 planet saver

Jeremy Clarkson

All black men are thieves. All Jews would sell their mothers for a pound. All Muslims are suicide bombers and everyone in Ireland is as thick as a slab of cheese. Yes. Right. And everyone with a Chelsea tractor is a stick-thin blonde whose head is so full of useless social engagements that she canít actually be bothered to steer round other cars, street furniture or bus shelters. It ainít necessarily so. All sorts of people buy 4x4s for all sorts of reasons. And contrary to what the global warmists would have us believe, only some are stick-thin blonde women who wonít actually stop until the underside of their car is so jammed up with run-over pedestrians the wheels wonít go round any more. The wave of hatred, then, that engulfs the off-roader is nothing more than ill informed prejudice. And what makes my blood boil is that things are getting worse.

I do not have much time for people who get dressed up in camouflage clothing and take to the countryside in their Land Rovers to see who can get most covered in mud. This is known as ďgreen laningĒ and itís as ridiculous as pushing a kettle over a frozen lake. I wouldnít want to stop them doing it, though, partly because theyíd all be at home otherwise, downloading unusual images from the internet, but mostly because itís fairly harmless. Oh no it isnít, say the ramblists. They argue that green laning is noisy and causes polar bears to drown. One group, the Yorkshire Dales Green Lanes Alliance, says that taking a vehicle for the purposes of fun onto a green lane should be ďan offenceĒ.

Now, even if we ignore the difficulties of policing such a law, or of making a case stick in the courts - ďI wasnít doing it for funĒ is hard to disprove - we are left astounded at the narrow-mindedness of these people. Not even the communists or the Nazis attempted to make ďfunĒ an offence. And unfortunately it doesnít end here because those of a four-wheel-drive disposition are being targeted, not only in the countryside, but in towns as well with local councils saying now that anyone who drives a large car on the school run must pay £75 a year for the privilege. This is insane. Like many parents, my wife and I have a big, seven-seater Volvo, not because we used to lie awake at night dreaming of the day when we could own such a thing, and not because we always wanted, more than anything, a car that sounds like a canal boat. No. We have it because we are part of a school-run car-sharing scheme. And the fact is this: by filling our Volvo with six children every morning, we are keeping three other cars off the road. So why should we pay more than someone who takes just two kids to school in a Mini? In reality, a Mini takes up exactly the same amount of space on the road as a Volvo XC90, so therefore, it should be the Mini driver whoís made to pay a premium while those of us with large, high-occupancy vehicles, are allowed to proceed for free. I mean it. I would far rather own a Cooper S than a Volvo. It is better looking, nicer to drive, cheaper to run and cheaper to buy. But I donít. I sacrifice my love of driving, my love of cars and the contents of my bank for the public good. I should therefore be rewarded with gifts, free passage and some thank-you letters from the worldís polar bears.

Yes, I know Iím supposed to make my children go to school on the bus, but I canít - for three reasons. One, theyíd get lost. Two, theyíd catch a disease. And three, there isnít one. So, if you are in the same boat as me, and you fancy the idea of a school-run-sharing seven-seater, there are many choices, and almost all of them are terrible in some way. The Audi Q7 is ugly. The Land Rover Discovery weighs more than the moon. The Vauxhall Zafira is a Vauxhall, and the Ford S-Max, while attractive and good to drive, is a mini people carrier . . . and Iím sorry but nothing says youíve given up in life quite so spectacularly as a car designed entirely to be practical. Itís motoringís equivalent of a tartan zip-up slipper. Small wonder, then, the XC90 is almost a part of the school uniform these days. Itís practical. Itís reliable. It has a reputation for safety. With a towbar on the back, itíll pull a horsebox. I even have a friend who fitted winter tyres and uses it for shooting. But there is one problem. When it first came out, it was good value at less than £30,000. But now the top models are nudging £50,000 or more. And that makes it even more expensive than a packet of pasta.

Which is why my eye was drawn last week to the new Mitsubishi Outlander. Here we have a car that seems to do everything the Volvo does, in a smaller package, for less money. A lot less. The range starts at less than £20,000 and even the most expensive model is only £27,000. I do not know how such a low price is possible when, so far as I can see, a cut of the profits will be going to every car firm in the world. The Outlander, amazingly, is based on the same platform as the Mitsubishi Evo X that I reviewed last week. But the car itself was designed in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz when it was in bed with Chrysler, so it shares a great many bits and pieces with the Dodge Nitro, a silly car for silly Americans. Then thereís the French connection. The Outlander, having been designed in America, Japan and Germany, is being built in conjunction with Peugeot and CitroŽn, which offer their own versions of the same car. And the 2 litre turbodiesel engine is made by Volkswagen. No matter: despite the United Nations nature of the background, the end result is quite good. Weíll deal with the drawbacks first, and that means we have to start in the boot, where there is an essay on how the rear seats should be raised and lowered from the floor. I think itís designed to be difficult, because then youíll never actually discover that when the seats are in place thereís no rear legroom, at all, and not much boot left either. Itís best, then, that on a shared school run, to put the kids you donít like very much back there.

Next is the four-wheel-drive system. Most of the time youíre in two-wheel drive and that doesnít really work when the car is fully loaded. Every time you put your foot down, the front end goes light, the driven wheels lose their grip and everything, for a little while, goes all wobbly. Best, I think, to hang the extra fuel consumption and leave it in 4WD all the time. And thatís it. Those are the drawbacks. All two of them. The rest of the car is well made, well equipped, well trimmed and, like the Evo, fitted with Mitsubishiís brilliant sat nav system. I also think it is good looking and, despite the fact you can only have it with a diesel engine, quite good to drive. It feels much lighter and more responsive than you might imagine. Of course, itís not as much fun as a Mini, itís not as practical as a Volvo and it wonít be as cheap as its sister car from CitroŽn . . . not if they do their usual trick of offering customers £1m cashback and the chance to sleep with the managing directorís wife every other Saturday.

But as an overall package, itís a good way of getting into a car-sharing scheme. Yes, youíll be charged £75 by idiotic, blinkered councils, but look at it this way - youíll save the planet, keep the polar bears alive, cut congestion and, best of all, on the mornings when itís not your turn, have a lie-in.

Though i agree IFS will definitely handle better and will give a great ride. I do not feel it offers so much of advantage when compared to a modern coil over fixed axle design, especially on ride front. And at the end of the day the traditional leaf at rear do play the spoil sport in the overall ride (unless loaded). All this in our Indian roads where 140 KMPH is idiotic and quite difficult to maintain. Thats what i feel.

Roll was considerably less "compared" to a traditional jeep, but it was still there just to remind Thar is a jeep afterall. Rear side bench with its tall seating was very UNcomfortable with just some spirited lane changes.

In short i agree IFS has its plus's, but at the end of the day if avoiding IFS can cut 75-80k INR from the price of the Crde? I would have been waiting now after paying up Dream on!
