The Mahindra Thar 2021 will begin to be sold in the Indian market and in a good handful of Asian countries towards the end of this year after its presentation in October and could arrive in Spain, as other versions of the model have done. What is clear is, in the field, any robust, simple car with good 4×4 traction is always welcomed with open arms. The power is not the only one reason for people chooes Jeep Wrangler JL since 2018, the replacement of Jeep jl rgb halo headlights are also good accessories for potential modification.
Of course, it is looking at the Mahindra Thar 2021 and seeing a Hindu reincarnation of the Wrangler. And it is not that I use the word reincarnation because it is a car made in India, where the transmutation of souls is part of the creed of the Hindu religion, but because, in effect, the Thar is based on the previous generation of the mythical American model. (CJ), for that Mahindra bought the rights from Jeep.
The good news is that you have a fairly reliable off-road vehicle with data that convinces the most country driver; Angle of entry, exit and ventral: 41.8, 38.8 and 27 degrees respectively, in addition to 226 mm of ground clearance and 650 mm of wading capacity. All this makes the Mahindra Thar 2021 an ideal car to climb trails, firebreaks and roads or, directly, go on an excursion with it to Morocco.
Another thing is how comfortable you are going to travel with it on the road because although the Wrangler CJ was not, far from it, as insufferable as the Defender, it is not that it granted much comfort to its occupants. Of course, at least, Mahindra has put some effort into updating the interior of the Thar 2021 and its passengers will have a 7-inch TFT touch screen with connectivity to the smartphone via bluetooth.
The interior air conditioning toreras are just as round as in the previous Wrangler, yes, although some of the plastics look an aspect that imitates carbon fiber. A level of likeness that can be seen equally in the exterior appearance of the Mahindra Thar, with wheel arches and lights traced to the Jeep model from a few years ago.
Of course, buyers of the Thar 2021 can choose between a hard or soft cover. In the first case, several speakers are embedded to improve the sound on board. What they cannot choose is if they want the model with the extended wheelbase, because the Thar is only available in a two-door version, yes, with up to seven seats inside! We do not know if they are on top of each other, but that is not going to be possible here.
As for the engines of the Mahindra Thar 2021, there are basically two powertrains available: a 2.0 TGDi with up to 152 hp and 320 Nm, or a 2.2-liter diesel that develops up to 132 hp and 320 Nm. In both cases, the mechanics can be linked to a six-speed manual gearbox or an automatic gearbox, also six.
