My experience with the Mahindra Thar

Right from the first time I saw the Mahindra Thar I appreciated the way the jeep looks. But when I finally got a chance to check out the jeep I was quite disappointed to find out that the rugged looks are mostly superficial and are let down by flimsy build quality. Somewhere during its life span, Mahindra added strengthening beams to better the structural integrity of the car.

But all these things dont matter (although they should) because the Thars selling point is its uniqueness. True that it looks like a traditional jeep and nothing out of the ordinary but the fact that it is the only jeep on sale in India makes it the default choice for prospective customers.

I had the chance of driving one recently and was pleasantly surprised to find that the engine is very responsive for that of a jeep. It feels fast and agile with its suspension setup which also gives the car a very comfortable driving experience.

This being a jeep, equipment is limited to power steering and air conditioning which is ok. But the fact that it costs more than eight lakh rupees is the main problem with this car. While it has a good appearance, the lack of equipment and poor build quality along with a high price tag the Thar has more to lose than to win.

    excellent off roading machine

    Great vehicle for offroading anywhere. I went to ladakh as well as spiti and never had to worry about getting stuck anywhere. This vehicle can go almost anywhere. Excellent for driving in harsh terrain. It is reliable and sturdy. It needs better quality interiors and i feel sometimes it is cramped as i am a tall person. But service has Read More

    Jeep it is

    Jeep was my dream vehicle for years since I started driving. If there is one vehicle which can tame Indian roads, it has to be one and only Mahindra Jeep. Except for its lousy interiors and rear suspension problems it meets all the demands one may have from an offroading or daily use vehicle. Read More
