The Mahindra Thar is one of the most capable and affordable off-roaders on sale today in India. In the video seen below, the Thar shows off its off-roading skills by fording a raging river sometime during the monsoon season.
In the video, the Mahindra Thar, which does not seem to be heavily modified (except for the presence of a snorkel) enters the river, which is swollen with water. The Thar gingery enters the river, as the raging current tries to push it downstream and most of the bonnet immediately goes under water. Despite the fast-moving water trying its level best to push the Thar downstream, the little off-roader perseveres, slowly but surely making its way to the other bank of the river where it is cheered on by onlookers.
The Mahindra Thar is one of the most capable off-roading vehicles in India. The Thar is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine that cranks out 105bhp at 3,800rpm and 247Nm of torque at 1,800rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed gearbox and four-wheel-drive. Mahindra has also equipped the Thar with a low-range gearbox to help it handle the rough stuff.
However, as it is currently sold, the Thar does not meet upcoming emissions and safety regulations. To ensure that the Thar lives on, Mahindra is currently working on a new version of the Thar. Prototypes of the Thar have been found testing across our nation's roads and the new SUV does seem to have grown in size compared to the current vehicle. The new Thar will feature an all-new BS-VI-compliant 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces around 140bhp. The next-gen Mahindra Thar is expected to arrive sometime before BS-VI norms kick in on April 1, 2020.
