Mahindra and Mahindra has once again hiked the price of its flagship SUV Thar. The carmaker has increased the price of the SUV by up to 1.05 lakh. The decision to hike the price of Thar SUV comes after the new BS-6 Phase 2 emission norms kicked in from April 1 across India. However, Mahindra has not officially shared any reason behind the price hike. The price of the off-road SUV now starts from 10.55 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base AX (O) diesel manual RWD variant and goes up to 16.77 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec LX hard top diesel automatic version.

The biggest hike among all the variants of Thar has been implemented on the LX hard top diesel manual RWD, which has seen an increase of 1.05 lakh. Among the other variants, the AX(O) hard top diesel manual RWD variant is now expensive by 55,000, while all other variants have seen a uniform price hike of 28,200. The only variant that was spared from a price hike is the LX petrol automatic RWD version. The hike in price also includes the withdrawal of the introductory prices on Thar RWD versions launched in January this year.
