Thar has been a renowned war horse in the wild but Mahindra admits that it wasn't the most comfortable of cars from the inside. First launched here in 2010, the SUV has now been updated to offer much in the cabin too. A a seven-inch 'drizzle-resistant' infotainment screen offers phone connectivity options and puts out 'adventure statistics.' The speakers are mounted on the roof - unless one opts for the soft top or convertible top versions. The upholstery is completely washable while the rear seats are now forward facing. Even the switches on the dash can handle wet conditions while the vehicle itself boasts of 226 mm unladen ground clearance to help it negotiate water obstacles.

Thar 2020 will be available in six colour options - Red Rage, Mystic Copper, Napoli Black, Aquamarine, Galaxy Grey and Rocky Beige. Safety highlights include cruise control, ABS with EBD, dual airbags, hill-hold and hill descent control, and ESP with rollover mitigation.
