When I took a test drive in Mahindra Thar

By Nitesh on 29 August 2011

When I took a test drive in Mahindra Thar, I instantly classified this model as a hard core Jeep. The name of the car itself suggests a car that is brought back from the old days. The model has a rough and tough exterior and has a capacity to hold heavy loads. Mahindra Thar comes with an open roof top, which does not suit in hot and humid environs.

I find this model the best option for adventurous long travelling; however, it does lag behind in terms of security features. Mahindra Thar comprises of a power engine and features like power door locks, power steering wheel and tubeless tyres. The interior front is simple and strong, however lacks air conditioning, music system and standard security system like ABS.

On the other hand, Mahindra Thar is decently spacious and can accommodate up to seven people comfortably. I felt the quality of the leather seats was very grunge and did not match up to the quality in luxury cars. Towards the exteriors, this Jeep has a very sporty feel, with three door openings and an open roof.

During the test drive, I realised that the tyres are tubeless and were indeed very strong. The grills that come with the car are vertically aligned around standard headlights. The highlight of Mahindra Thar is its powerful engine, which is highly responsive at high speeds. A power packed engine with broad based tyres qualifies this car for travelling mostly on rough terrains and mountainous regions.
