The old-fashioned Mahindra Thar, which was earlier launched in South Africa and Europe, has now been launched in the Indian market with a lot of fanfare. The Mahindra Thar also happens to be India’s first BS IV CRDe diesel engine that comes in soft top. The Mahindra Thar was showcased at the 10th Auto Expo 2010 held at New Delhi, and M&M has kept its promise and delivered the immensely desirable vehicle right before the Christmas. The Mahindra Thar is being offered in three trims — Mahindra Thar DI 4X2 BS3, Mahindra Thar DI 4X4 BS3 and Mahindra Thar CRDe 4X4. And with a colour palette of Diamond White, Rocky Beige, Mist Silver, Fiery Black and Toreador Red to opt from, the buyers are spoilt for choice.
