Mahindra Thar Review : 8 Pros & 8 Cons

What you'll like:

  • Fun, fun, fun! A loveable car that will bring you loads of laughs & smiles
  • Handsome Jeep styling & brute character. Tough build too
  • Far more user-friendly than the ol’ Thar due to superior interiors & the amenities
  • Very competent, refined turbo-petrol & diesel engine range
  • Butter-smooth 6-speed Automatics available with both engines
  • 4x4 hardware, offroad capability & 226 mm GC. Get ready for slush, muck, deserts, jungles & the mountains!
  • Practical hard-top or fun convertible available in the Thar – take your pick
  • Features such as removeable doors, ESP, cruise control, hill hold / descent, TPMS…

What you won't:

  • Bumpy ride quality. The Thar is never settled, no matter what the road or speed
  • Poor road manners at high speed. Best to cruise at 100 - 110 km/h only
  • Impractical due to the 2-doors, 4 seats (not 5) & difficult access to the back seat
  • Laughably small boot simply isn’t enough for holiday luggage
  • Petrol AT is thirsty due to its hefty weight, 148 BHP & torque-converter AT
  • Premium pricing for the higher variants. Lot of money for the Thar's limited usability
  • Sad feature list for a 17-lakh car. No reversing cam, auto-dimming IRVM, auto headlamps & wipers, electrically-folding ORVMs, rear wash & wipe…
  • Apprehensions of niggles & Mahindra's hit-or-miss after-sales service quality
