Looks like MRF is specifically making them for new gen Thar. MRF website does not list this specific size for Wanderer AT. This is good. I have been hunting for this specific size for some time now.

No offence to Thar owners but it’s about time we call a spade a spade. I’m hoping for better things with the new gen Thar and it should cover all the deficiencies of the original thar.


It would be interesting to know just what the term 'hard-core' off-roader means. Not the kind, I hope, who go hunting in packs & spend a day splashing about in mud and other assorted "off-road" trails, with a decent safety-net of other like-minded individuals around them

I understood the term to mean the few intrepid souls who go out on their own to get to a place (usually far from civilisation & without a well demarcated approach) which is largely inaccessible to lesser mortals like me. Such individuals can be found on these pages, though rare.

Hahaha ! Just quoting the same term maverick has stated in his post, but we’re both on the same page. Unfortunately or fortunately, the place where I’m from ‘off roading ‘ is a way of life given the terrain and general absence of roads in many parts. We fall into the latter category. Function usually takes precedence over form in such situations

Next-gen Thar expected to make its debut at the Auto Expo 2020. March might be too early for sales to start. I'm waiting for the same

Mahindra’s Next-gen Thar Will Also Get A Petrol Mill And Automatic Transmission.

Quote:
-The petrol option alongside the diesel could be the 2.2-litre engine axed from the XUV500 updated to BS6 norms.
-It could also feature a 6-speed torque converter along with the expected 6-speed manual gearbox.
-Will get minor cosmetic enhancements on the outside compared to its predecessor.
-Interior layout will be completely revamped alongside additional features.
-Expected to carry a hefty premium over the current Thar 700 owing to its upgrades

The interiors are sure a step forward and the Automatic is an excellent addition. But the Thar still doesn't seem to have internally adjustable mirrors? I am not even talking about electrically adjustable or foldable.

The mirrors you see are just dummies. The new ones will be adjustable internally.

Looks like Mahindra has appointed an independent agency - The Womb, to handle advertising for the Thar relaunch. Budget allocated is 50crores, as per the below media report.

The rear lamp cluster and the front turn signal clusters are rather pathetic. Hoping that the actual launch model will have better better fitments.

Well put. We have spent a good part of the past couple of decades traipsing around Uttaranchal and there too, the absence of good roads - or the total absence thereof over parts of it! - is a fact of life.

And yet, after reading the photologues of some of the folks here (and doffing my hat to them, may I add!), I feel I'm an amateur in their company!

The news of Thar coming with a petrol+Automatic combo has gotten me all excited! Hope they give us a 4x4 in this too. Any other Petrol+Auto+4x4 combos around?
