Scoop! Next-gen Mahindra Thar unveil on August 15, 2020

The next-generation Mahindra Thar will be unveiled on August 15, 2020. The SUV will be unveiled via a live webcast on the Thar's official website (website not live yet). Details on bookings, test drives and deliveries will be shared at a later date.

The next generation Thar is expected to be based on the Gen3 chassis and appears to be wider than the outgoing car. In July 2020, it was spotted with production-spec black alloy wheels. The SUV also gets bonnet clamps, grille with vertical slats and circular headlamps similar to the outgoing model. It will be offered in hardtop and soft top options.

On the inside, the new Thar has a redesigned dashboard with circular air-con vents and a new centre fascia that houses a touchscreen infotainment system. It could also get front-facing rear seats. In all, the new Thar could be offered in 6-7 variants.

The Thar could be powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion petrol engine producing 187 BHP and 380 Nm and a 138 BHP 2.2-litre diesel engine. Transmission options might include an automatic and a 6-speed manual. It could also get a diesel AT variant.
