Mahindra Thar spied; testing 180 mStallion turbo-petrol unit?

The test car could have the rumoured, more powerful 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine under the bonnet.

New spy images of the Mahindra Thar have surfaced online. The test car was fitted with emissions testing equipment, which suggests it could have the rumoured, more powerful 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine under the bonnet.

The 180 mStallion turbo-petrol engine is expected to be introduced around mid-2021. It will use the familiar 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder block but will have a slightly higher output. The top speed of the Thar is also expected to increase from 150 km/h to 180 km/h.

At present, the Thar is available with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 150 BHP and 320 Nm as well as a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel that makes 130 BHP and 320 Nm. Both engines are available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
