Mahindra Thar In UAE
The first question is how does the Mahindra Thar performed in such a long journey. Well we have an answer for this.
The Thar SUV has smooth gear shifter and clutch pedal also feels light. It was 150 hp petrol engine which gave just enough performance in the whole journey. The desert capabilities were also tested as the Thar arrives in famous dunes of UAE. There was split second of delay while on and then off throttle as turbo took time to spool up. The trip was made on stock tyres that Mahindra provides with the Thar.
We all know that the Thar doesn’t have an aerodynamic design. This makes it struggle from 100 kph onwards. Even the wind noise comes at just 80 kph. Stopping power of the SUV is on weaker side due to disc brakes at the front only. But still, the Thar is an amazing off-road vehicle due to the value it provides for the price.
The Mahindra Thar starts at Rs 12.78 Lakh (ex-showroom) and goes upto Rs 15.08 Lakh (ex-showroom).
