Mahindra Thar 5-door Interior Spied With New Features

Mahindra’s forthcoming 5-door Thar has undergone extensive testing for over a year, revealing new interior features that set it apart from its 3-door counterpart. Anticipated to hit the market by the middle of the upcoming year, this SUV promises an enhanced driving experience.

The most noteworthy interior upgrade is a larger touchscreen, potentially a 10-inch unit with improved graphics, housed in a redesigned dashboard. The iconic features of the Thar, such as AC vents, HVAC controls, and a row of toggle switches, remain intact. Notably, individual armrests for the front seats and second-row AC vents are added features absent in the 3-door version. The test mule showcases rear dummy seats, leaving room for speculation about the seating configuration in the final model—whether it will feature a traditional bench or two separate seats, akin to the standard Thar.

Other notable additions include an upgraded instrument cluster with a larger MID, possibly sourced from the Scorpio N, a dashboard camera, and a conspicuous single-pane sunroof. The 5-door Thar will exclusively sport a hardtop with a fixed roof.

Addressing criticisms of the 3-door Thar’s 7-inch screen, the 5-door variant boasts a more sophisticated infotainment system with a larger touchscreen, setting a new standard. It is anticipated that this improvement may eventually extend to the Thar 3-door in the future.

Targeting a broader audience that values both daily commuting and off-road capabilities, Mahindra aims to differentiate the 5-door Thar by offering an extensive features list and enhanced comfort. Camouflaged prototypes hint at subtle design alterations to distinguish it from the 3-door variant.

Retaining the current 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre petrol engines, coupled with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions, the 5-door Thar upholds its off-road prowess. However, due to the extended wheelbase and added weight, adjustments to the suspension setup are expected.

The anticipated debut of the 5-door Thar is slated for mid-2024, with an estimated price range of Rs 16 lakh to 20 lakh (ex-showroom), positioning it as a premium offering compared to its 3-door counterpart.
