The highly anticipated Mahindra Thar five-door is set to be launched in India on 15 August. As the launch date approaches, new details about the car have emerged, giving enthusiasts a glimpse of what to expect.

The test units of the Thar five-door, spotted in production-ready form, hint at various new features and design elements that differentiate it from its three-door counterpart.

Exterior Design


The Thar five-door test mules, heavily camouflaged, reveal some exciting exterior features. The vehicle will be available in multiple color options, including red and black, with a likely lineup of five to six colors.

Prominent exterior features include circular LED DRLs integrated into the headlamp cluster, a new multi-slat grille, side steps, a dual-tone finish for alloy wheels, fender-mounted turn indicators, plastic cladding, new LED taillights, and a cover for the tailgate-mounted spare tire.

Interior Features


Inside, the 2024 Thar five-door promises several upgrades over its predecessor. Key interior features expected include a larger touchscreen unit, a dual-pane sunroof (with a single-pane unit in lower variants), front armrest, USB Type-C charging ports, B-pillar-mounted rear door handles, a digital instrument cluster, and automatic climate control.

These enhancements aim to provide a more comfortable and modern driving experience for the occupants.

Engine and Competition


The five-door Mahindra Thar will likely be powered by the same engines as the three-door version: a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel, both paired with six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.


Apart from competing with the Force Gurkha five-door, the Thar five-door will also challenge traditional mid-size SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta, Maruti Grand Vitara, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, and MG Astor. This positions the Thar five-door as a versatile and competitive option in the Indian SUV market.
