About Mahindra Thar 5 Door
With the rumours of Maruti Suzuki planning to bring Jimny 5 door in India. Mahindra appears leaving no single stone unturned and want to maintain its dominance in the affordable off-roader category. Also, the decision to make 5 Door Thar model is based on the response received from many first time buyers and families who want a more practical SUV for daily use
Keeping this in mind, Mahindra is currently working on Mahindra Thar 5 Door model. The 5 Door Thar is expected to launch somewhere around 2023 and it will cost ₹ 70,000 – ₹ 80,000/- more than the existing 02 door model. With the 5 door model in Place, buyers can expect more legroom and storage space added with convenience.
Let take Wrangler as an example its 5 door model is 15% longer all in all it gives a 22% increase in wheelbase as compared to the 2-door model. You can expect a similar increase for the Thar whose overall length currently stands at 3,985mm and wheelbase at 2,450mm.
Currently the rear seats of 2 door Thar model are comfortable enough for 02 adults. But, with the launch of the 5 doors Thar model the rear wheel arches will shift more backward which result in the comfortable seating of 03 adults at the rear seat. Although, it will also compromise the off-roading capability of 5 door model as the break-over angle will reduce.
Thar 5 Door Engine
In the 5 door model, Mahindra is likely to offer the same 2.2-litre mHawk Diesel and 2.0-Liter stallion petrol engine. Mated with a 6-speed manual and automatic transmission. However, It is likely to get a bump in power, similar to the new Scorpio which is going on sale next year.
With launch of 5 door model Mahindra is expecting another break in Family SUV segment. It will really be interesting to see whether Maruti finally brings 5 Door Jimny model in India to compete with Thar or not.
