The Mahindra Thar was always a favourite of the sort of people who enjoy driving off-road every once in a while. It was capable, robust looking and a lot more affordable than some proper, heavy duty off-road SUVs. Mahindra has now released a limited edition version of this vehicle.
The car is called the Thar Adventure edition and only 30 units will be made. This version is available only in select dealerships as well. Customers who buy this car can order it in a new Java Brown colour with body decals, a chaff screen which is basically a wire mesh grille that protects the front of the car from pebbles, headlamp and tail lamp covers and so on.
The interiors also see a few changes such as a new centre console, a compass, 2D maps and black and orange piping in the seat upholstery. It must also be pointed out that this limited edition version of the Thar will be available with only its 2.5 litre CRDe engine that puts out 103.5 bhp and the standard 5 speed manual gearbox. This car will also get a low range gearbox and all wheel drive. Mahindra has not released pricing information for this vehicle but expect it to cost around INR 7.50 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
