Popular Indian UV maker Mahindra has quietly launched an updated Thar that no longer is marred by some niggles that have been reported by the owners of the earlier model.
The updated Mahindra Thar gets a new cross bar, between the A- and B-pillar, for an increased body rigidity. This update is a cure to the problem of old Thar’s B-pillars hitting the doors over undulations. Also, the Thar gets a fixed range setup instead of the auto-locking hubs at the front axle.
Other than this, the car also comes with improved aircon switches, new door handles that are much less prone to breaking, lowered rear seats, simpler roof-removing mechanism. Unlike in the earlier Thar, where one needed to remove pins to take off the canopy, the updated model comes with four screws that make it more convenient to take the canopy off or put it back on.
It isn’t yet known if all these updates have resulted into a price rise but we believe that these updates are too minor to warrant a hike in prices. Stay tuned to Motoroids.com for more updates on the updated Mahindra Thar.
