Note: Changes made are only applicable to the CRDe variant – the DI variant continues unchanged.

On the outside, the new Thar CRDe come with new front & rear bumpers, clear lens headlamps, new wheel arch trim, new side steps, and a redesigned rear canopy. The interiors get majorly upgraded with an all-new dashboard, along with new steering wheel, gear lever, seats and upholstery. Mechanical changes come courtesy a mechanical locking, rear differential by Eaton.

The new front bumper’s more of a shroud, and we believe it kills the classic, open wheeled character of the original Thar.

The new Thar gets a healthier set of side footsteps, while the wheel arch trim has been beefed up too.

With a 44-degree approach angle, a 27-degree departure angle, and a ground clearance of 200 mm, the new Thar loses none of its off-road prowess.

The soft-top gets mildly revised, with a little rake at the back.

The bulk of the changes lie in here. Even the door trims are new.

New Mahindra Thar seats

The seats get wider, more accommodating and re-upholstered.

For the keener off-road enthusiast, who represent a healthy part of the Thar’s clientèle, Mahindra will now offer the 2015 Thar with an optional MLocker by Eaton. This mechanical locking differential engages automatically during low traction situations when a wheel speed difference of 100 RPM or greater (left-to-right) is detected, thus ensuring the vehicle gets the best traction possible.

  • […] It’s time for a new Thar then, and we sampled it at the Mahindra Offroading Acdemy in Igatpuri, near Nasik. The new Thar CRDe has already been launched, and retails for INR 8.03 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). We have already reviewed the exterior and interior changes in great detail. Incase you missed it, read about them here. […]

    Thar had a clean, uncluttered classic lines which made it look so handsome, but now it’s no more. Mahindra always tend to go overboard with its designs. They should have kept it like before. The Thar Di variant too definitely needs power steering and an AC upgrade ASAP (at least as a paid option).

    Distant plastics used all around. Mahe is repeating its mistake ever again. Poorly designed interior and awesomely crushable exterior, instead of tough materials. Just not there..

  • Sachin Nambiar says:

    Suppa excellent job done by Mahindra team for the #Thar …I would choose this # Thar now …instead of the Jeep Wrangler…..Kudos to Mahindra
