Mahindra Thar gets new skid plate, off-road accessories

The new skid plate is said to offer better protection to the radiator from rocks and debris.

The Mahindra Thar now comes with a new skid plate after the previous design was found to be less durable. The new unit is said to offer better protection to the radiator from rocks and debris.

Mahindra had also received complaints about components getting damaged easily while driving off-road. To address these, the company has now introduced a radiator protector guard kit (Rs. 5,550), which includes a metal bash plate and a fuel tank protector (Rs. 2,335). Both kits are offered as separate accessories.

The Thar was launched on October 2, 2020. The off-roader is available with two engine options. These include a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder mStallion petrol that produces 150 BHP and 320 Nm and a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel unit that makes 130 BHP and 320 Nm. Both engines are available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. A four-wheel drive system with a manual-shift transfer case is standard across all variants.

The Thar gets an independent suspension at the front and a multi-link suspension setup at the rear. It has Shift-on-the-Fly four-wheel drive, a mechanical locking differential, brake locking differential and electromechanical driveline disconnect.
