New Mahin­dra Thar spied

Evo India - - CONNECT -

The Mahin­dra Thar has al­ways been a crowd favourite. The Ed chanced upon a cam­ou­flaged test mule of the up­com­ing new-gen Thar re­cently and asked our fol­low­ers about what they wish it has.

Girid­ha­ran Ke­sa­van More af­ford­able

Man­ish Dev Ma­hanti 200bhp, 500Nm torque, 250mm ground clear­ance, pre-lift to ac­com­mo­date some 36ers!

Jayprashan­th Mo­han­ram It’s got coil springs at the rear. That’s go­ing to make the ride bet­ter for sure. Seats look com­fier and the dash looks quite con­tem­po­rary. There’s a fac­tory hard top, and a roll bar at the rear. Front fac­ing seats as well. Then fi­nally, ABS + Airbags. So over­all, should be a lot more us­able.

Devesh Ku­mar Sharma It doesn’t look good. It looks even shorter than the cur­rent ver­sion. It can’t pos­si­bly han­dle the lug­gage load five peo­ple may have. It should at least be long as Bolero or should have a five-door ver­sion. How­ever Jeep Wrangler is too costly in In­dia and its sim­i­lar de­sign will make the Thar sell.

Karthikeya­n Chi­dambaram Add to that coil springs at the rear, disc brakes all around please. I have taken a pledge that I won’t buy a car that has me­dieval drum brakes. Don’t come to me with an ar­gu­ment that it’s ad­e­quate. It’s just plain cost cut­ting by the man­u­fac­turer noth­ing else.

Mathew Irene All I can see is that it has lost the DNA. The pro­por­tions are all gone. Then it may still sell be­cause af­ter all a Rene­gade also sells as a Jeep.

Ishan Pratap Singh Solanki Fac­tory fit­ted snorkel and front­fac­ing rear fold­able seats.

Ram Kr­ishna Fac­tory fit­ted snorkels on both sides? Sim­ple thing which in­creases the off road abil­ity and also looks cool.

Robin Ghose Diff locks front and rear. Bet­ter front wheel ar­tic­u­la­tion.

V Chauhan Bet­ter Qual­ity in terms of fit and fin­ish. Bet­ter af­ter sales ser­vice and bet­ter pric­ing.

Vinu Gowda An op­tion of a petrol engine with AT + 4x4. As this will be life­style ve­hi­cle and not a mile muncher. It will bring down own­er­ship cost.

Avi Pratap Singh Put it on a diet please. Bring it down to 1350kg. Diff locks, mount­ing points and con­nect­ing leads for aux lights with a coil sprung front and rear live axles, side mounted spare wheel and drop down tailgate plus an MDI engine would be great.

anin­dith Lock­ing diff, more power, stronger front sus­pen­sion, open­able top like in the Wrangler and for­ward-fac­ing rear seats
