The new-gen Thar carries forward the legacy from its predecessor which was introduced in 2010. As per Mahindra, Thar 2020 is a hugely improved model and appeals to a larger set of customers.

The Thar 2020 is a slightly wider and taller offering against the previous model. It looks highly muscular thanks thanks to its flared up wheel arches, flat hood and classic circular headlamps. It is featured in both soft-top as well as hard-top options for the first time. On the outside, it gets several exterior colour options such as Red Rage, Mystic Copper, Napoli Black, Aquamarine, Galaxy Grey and Rocky Beige.

The Thar 2020 is underpinned by a completely new ladder-frame chassis which is claimed to have improved the overall driving dynamics of the car without compromising its off-road capabilities. Also new is the suspension which includes a multi-link setup lending it a more road friendly stance.

Under the hood, the mechanical upgrades are major as it has received two new options in the form of a new 2.0-litre 'mStallion' petrol engine and a 2.2-litre mHawk engine.
