The all-new 2020 Mahindra Thar will share the same platform with their third-generation the TUV 300 and the Scorpio. This makes the new Thar longer wider and taller compared to the current-generation of the Thar. We expect the 2020 Thar to make its debut at the Auto Expo next year and will go on sale soon after.

The Mahindra Thar has been on sale since 2010 in the Indian market. The off-roader has received a couple of facelifts and minor upgrades regularly. However, with the new emission and safety norms coming in next year, the company is releasing the next-gen SUV to comply with all the norms.

The next-gen 2020 Thar will feature a 2.2-litre BS-VI compliant turbo-diesel engine which would produce 140hp and 320Nm of torque. The company will also share this engine with the BS-VI Mahindra Scorpio. The power and torque figures make the SUV more powerful than the outgoing version to help with on-road and off-road terrains in sticky situations.

The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission with the same low-range selector and differential lock to help with those off-road terrains. The power will be delivered to the rear wheels as standard. A manual Four-Wheel Drive selector enables the driver to send the power to all four wheels through a transfer case. It will share the same low-range selector and differential lock to help with those off-road terrains.
