The current generation Mahindra Thar will be discontinued in the months to come with the arrival of the second generation model that has been snapped testing multiple times now. The upcoming all-new second-generation Thar is expected to be launched at the 2020 Auto Expo.
The new Mahindra Thar Signature Edition will be launched in India soon. An official document of the limited edition model has leaked on the internet very recently that gives an idea of how the vehicle will be like.
As the name suggests, the new Mahindra Thar Signature Edition will come with some premium highlights that will differentiate it from the standard model. First and foremost, the new model gets Aqua Marine colour, the same shade that is available with the Mahindra Marazzo. Moreover, the front grille gets Napoli black colour along with special edition decals on the bonnet and sides.
The Signature Edition, being a limited edition model, it will be limited to 700 units only. Expect an official announcement regarding the launch of the Signature edition in the days to come. As far as pricing is concerned, the more premium Thar is expected to be priced considerably higher than the standard model.
The Mahindra Thar is a compact and mid-size four-wheel drive off-road Jeep CJ-like SUV manufactured by Indian automaker Mahindra & Mahindra Limited. The vehicle was launched in the Indian market on October 4, 2010 to fill the void left by its predecessor the Mahindra MM540.
For more than 75 years, people around the globe have been in love with Jeeps. Even as the SUV has been developed into a fast, great-handling, and luxurious segment of the vehicle market, the basic Jeep MB/CJ/Wrangler has remained more or less unchanged.
In truth, if Jeep ever did change the basic formula, they would risk destroying the cult appeal of the vehicle. I think everybody wants to own a Jeep at some point in their life. A Jeep that’s descended from the original army Jeeps.
Mahindra Thar Signature edition is arduous to drive on pavement. Signature Edition badge has been placed on the right hand side fender that bears Mahindra Group Chairman, Anand Mahindra’s signature, which probably explains the name.
Wait until next year to get your hands on the brute.
