The Mahindra Thar shares the companies rich DNA of building jeeps. The company first started in the 1940s building CKD Jeeps for the World War. These cars were assembled to take on any kind of terrain. The Thar shares a very similar platform to those rugged Jeeps that spawned from the original. It now comes with a decently powerful engine with a strong retro design. It is the enthusiast vehicle for the adventure crazy Indian driver. There are is a 4WD and a 2WD drive variant and because it caters to a niche market at such a low price, the Thar faces no real competition.
The Mahindra Thar is a pure retro design of an old retro Jeep. It is short, just under 4 metres,, has a nice ground clearance of 200mm and is also quite high at almost 2 metres. It has got the traditional looks with its front hood and front grille, perfectly round headlights, huge muscular wheel arches that extend along the front section and also over the rear tyres. It is a great looking car that looks capable to take on any kind of terrain. The wheels are also nice and big and look like they can dig deep into the ground. There is no hardtop version of the car and so the rear and top front section are covered by a canopy that does seem to be a problem for city drivers.
