The new Mahindra Thar RWD (Rear-wheel Drive) model line-up has been launched with prices starting from Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Both petrol and diesel engine choices are offered with an automatic or a manual transmission respectively.

The diesel version of the Mahindra Thar RWD is powered by the new D117 CRDe engine that is mated to a manual transmission and produces 119 hp with 300 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. The mStallion 150 TGDi engine, which has an automatic transmission, powers the RWD range’s petrol variant, delivering 152 hp with a peak 320 Nm of torque coming in at 5,000 rpm.

The starting price is Rs 9.99 lakh for the Mahindra Thar RWD AX(O) diesel-manual hard-top, with the LX variant above it costing Rs 10.99 lakh. The sole LX petrol automatic RWD variant costs Rs 13.49 lakh, all ex-showroom. The new Thar range is more accessible for a larger variety of SUV buyers.

A more advanced electronic brake locking differential is now included with the 4WD version. It was created in partnership with Bosch and will make it easier for off-road enthusiasts to handle low traction scenarios. The LX diesel 4WD model will offer the mechanical locking differential (MLD) as an option for those who still favour it. They are powered by one of two engines: a 2.0-litre mStallion 150 TGDi turbo-petrol unit that generates 152 hp and 320 Nm of torque, or a 1.5-litre 117 CRDe turbo-diesel engine that generates 119 hp and 300 Nm of torque. Transmission choices include a six-speed torque converter automatic or a six-speed manual.

The new Thar line significantly increases the level of personalization. Customers may now pick between Blazing Bronze and Everest White, two intriguing new colour options. There are four alternative designs available for the new accessory packs, which include options for both interior and exterior aesthetics. Front and rear armrests are available as accessories in order to meet customer needs. There is storage built into the armrests. For added comfort and convenience, cupholders and USB outlets will also be installed in the rear armrests. Only the hard top option will be available with the RWD series.
