The legend of the Mahindra Thar has been in the making for more than seventy years. The adventurer’s car of choice, it is the true successor to the MM540, Mahindra’s original all-terrain, come-what-may jeep since 1945. The Thar is available at Mahindra Ottery. With its classic body and contemporary features, the Mahindra Thar is tougher than you could imagine. Armed with the Borg Warner 4WD System that provides 2.48 crawl ratio in low-range, its traditionally high approach and departure angles (44º and 27º respectively), great overall clearance at 200mm, a new mechanical locking rear differential and auto locking hubs, you and your Mahindra Thar are ready to render the impossible possible.


The extended wheel arches and toughened bumpers accentuate the Thar’s effortlessly rugged attitude while protecting the bodywork from any damage The removable canvas canopy will immerse you in the world around you to experience the elements at close hand. Clear lens headlamps provide powerful light over any terrain. Side steps for easy access/egress.

Mahindra Rivonia - Thar - Technology


The NEF TCI-CRDe 2.5l diesel engine, provides a perfect balance of power and torque. It generates 79kW of power and 247Nm of torque at 1,800 – 2,000rpm, providing unmatched capability on any terrain. The manual shift on fly 4WD with high and low ratio, closely matched on the main gearbox enable the driver to maintain headway under most conditions. The mechanical locking differential provides enhanced traction on loose and slippery surfaces, without the need for pushbuttons, shift throws or other interventions. The auto locking hubs disconnect the front axle when not required, reducing wear and tear and increasing fuel efficiency. Head over to Mahindra Cape Town South to experience the magic of the Mahindra Thar.
