Auto Expo 2018: Mahindra Thar Wanderlust showcased. Mahindra & Mahindra has showcased the modified Thar Wanderlust with several updates. The Wanderlust edition of the Thar sits a level above the Thar Daybreak edition with significant modification done to the exterior bodywork of the SUV.

The Mahindra Thar Wanderlust edition also gets a snorkel for the air intake, sculpted bonnet and custom fenders at front and rear.

The cabin also sports four seats with Sparco front seats, sunroof and touchscreen infotainment system.
The Mahindra Thar Wanderlust draws power from the existing 2.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing 105bhp and 247Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox with four-wheel-drive-system. Mahindra has yet to confirm about retailing the Thar Wanderlust through its customisation house.
