Mahindra Thar 5-Door

News Highlights

  • The 5-door Thar will be aimed at families.
  • The 5-door version expected to be priced Rs 70,000 -Rs 80,000 more than the 2-door model
  • Mahindra 5-door Thar to get the same set of engine options as the 2-door version.

The 2020 Mahindra Thar has received an overwhelming response with more than 50,000 bookings since its launch last year. Now the homegrown automaker is planning to launch the 5-door Thar in 2023. The new Thar will be built on a brand new platform and get updated engines. However, it might retain the 2-door body style. Unlike the 2-door Thar which was aimed at the individual buyers, the 5-door Thar will be focusing on the families who need that extra space along with a rugged appeal. 

The 5-door Thar will come with a longer wheelbase in comparison to the standard 2-door version that stands at 2450mm. By extending the wheelbase, the rear wheel arches will move back a bit thereby releasing space for a wider rear seat. However, if the wheelbase is extended, it might have implications on the off-road ability as the breakover angle will be reduced. 


Performance-wise, the 5-door Mahindra Thar will be powered by the same 2.2 litre mHawk diesel and 2-litre Stallion petrol engine. Transmission options will include the same 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox. However, we can expect the 5-door Thar to get a bump up in power.

Besides these, Mahindra also plans to introduce 4 new SUVs on the monocoque platform and 2 new electric vehicles by 2026. The automaker will introduce the next-gen Scorpio, 5-door Thar, and the all-new Bolero on the basis of ladder-frame chassis. The next-gen Scorpio will be introduced in the first quarter of 2022. While the all-new Bolero will be launched between 2023-26.
