The 4WD variant now comes with an advanced electronic brake locking differential, which kicks in more aggressively. Developed in collaboration with Bosch, it will allow off-road enthusiasts to tackle low traction situations with more ease. For those who still prefer the mechanical locking differential (MLD), this will be available as an option on the LX Diesel 4WD variants. The 4WD powertrain line-up remains unchanged. It is powered by the 2.0L mStallion 150 TGDi petrol engine producing 150 bhp of power and 320 Nm of torque and the 2.2L mHawk 130 diesel engine producing 130 bhp of power and 300 Nm of torque. These engines are offered with a choice of 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
The new Thar range takes the personalisation quotient to the next level. Two exciting new colour options –Blazing Bronze and Everest White are now available for customers to choose from. New accessory packs–comprising exterior and interior styling options– are offered in four different designs. Keeping in mind the needs of customers, front and rear arm rests are being offered as accessories. The armrests come with built-in storage. Also, the rear armrests will be equipped with cup-holders and USB charging ports for greater comfort and convenience. The RWD range will be offered only with the Hard Top Option.
