The Thar Signature Edition will reportedly be limited to 700 units and is likely to be offered in two colour options - Napoli Black and Aqua Marine. The Signature Edition is expected to come equipped with 15-inch alloy wheels, black bonnet decals and a silver front bumper. It is likely to get Signature Edition badges with Anand Mahindra's signature. Inside, the Signature Edition will reportedly come with leatherette upholstery and front facing rear seats.

The Thar Signature Edition is expected to be powered by a 2.5-litre CRDe 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 105 BHP @ 3,800 rpm and 247 Nm @ 1,800-2,000 rpm and could be paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Wish they had re-introduced chrome finish wheels on this final Thar. Might not look super cool, (a bit tacky?) but they looked nice on the Mahindra Legend.

Anand Mahindra's signature, seriously? there are better ways to make it legendary. This sounds more like a stock clearing exercise

Looks like Mahindra is doing a Suzuki or wait may be Toyota. An edition which stays true to its name- Look we have a Signature and thus Signature Edition.

So a special edition of the Thar to kind of end this generation. Not a bad idea that way given the new Thar might move to a new segment price wise with BS6 engine and the additional safety equipment. Remember the 1st Gen Thar getting launched at somewhat close to 6 L on road in Bangalore and over the years the price has almost doubled. But yes signature edition would have been really a collectors edition if it had something connected with real off-roading or at least some connection with people who have made off-roading an art in India.

Should have had something to do with the father of Thar. BD. Then it would have been a collector's edition. Right now, nope. Nothing special.

Kind of agree, but I dont think that would ever happen sadly.

Mahindra Thar Signature Edition: This is IT!

Source Article

Quote:
Mahindra is all set to introduce the Thar Signature Edition, a limited edition model of the iconic on-off road SUV, which will soon be discontinued to make way for an all-new, 2nd generation model. A leaked internal document from Mahindra reveals all the features about the Limited Edition Thar, of which only 700 units will be built. The Thar Signature Edition derives its name from a special plaque with Anand Mahindraís signature on it. Itís likely to be priced at a premium over the regular Thar CRDE, which costs Rs. 9.5 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi.

Meanwhile, here are all the features that the Mahindra Thar Signature Edition will offer.

1. A new aquamarine blue colour borrowed from the Mahindra Marazzo

2. ABS+EBD

3. Signed plaque with Anand Mahindraís signature

4. New art leather seat covers

5. Decals on the sides

6. Alloy wheels in a new design

7. New front grille insert in black

8. Satin finish for front bumper

Apart from the addition of ABS, which is a life-saving safety feature that has now been made mandatory on all cars sold in India thanks to the Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP) norms, there are no other mechanical differences on the Mahindra Tharís Signature Edition. The SUV continues to use a 2.5 liter CRDE turbocharged diesel engine with 105 Bhp of peak power and 247 Nm of peak torque.

A five speed manual gearbox is standard and so is a four wheel drive transfer case with low and high ratios. The off roader also retains the rear wheel drive layout with the part-time four wheel drive capability, and auto locking hubs on the front wheels. The Thar continues to be an 8 seater with two captain seats at front and two, side facing bench seats at the rear. Power-assisted steering and air conditioning are standard features.

The lower priced DI variants of the Thar have been discontinued and the CRDe version will also bow out in the coming months, once Mahindra exhausts stock of the Signature Edition. In a sense, the Signature Edition of the Thar CRDe is meant to be a stock clearance move by the automaker. The all-new Thar, which has already begun testing on Indian roads, will make its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. It will go on sale from April 2020, and is likely to be pricier than the outgoing model. The all-new, 2nd generation Mahindra Thar is likely to pack in a whole host of improvements including a plusher cabin, better ride quality, sound damping and a factory fitted hard top option. Itíll also pack in a more powerful but smaller, 2 liter-4 cylinder turbo diesel engine and a 6 speed manual gearbox. A four wheel drive system will be standard.

In a lighter vein, my reactions to the new things on this signature edition as per the points above..

1)Duh ! aquamarine just doesn't cut it on the thar, (subjective though)
2) Oh yess !!
3) Duh !
4) Hmm..
5) Duh !
6) Nice try. Better looking than steel wheels of course.
7) Duh !
8) Duh !
'duh !' wins by a majority.

The Alloy on the special edition Thar does not seem all new after all. They are similar to ones seen in second gen Scorpio from 2013.

Looks like an attempt at making Mahindra Legend, certainly not as desirable as Legend. But legend won't do highway runs like this will to reach the offroad destination.

How is this limited edition? 700 is quite a lot, legend was just 60 I guess.

With all new passenger vehicles being sold in India soon requiring a driver-side airbag, speed-warning, seatbelt reminder for front passengers, and rear parking sensors as standard fitment, the vehicle that has none of these features had to do something to clear its remaining stocks.

Yes, as pointed out by everyone, this is a stock clearing excercise...and a pretty lame one at that. Better wait for the new Thar.
