The Mahindra Thar CRDe has been launched in India at a price of 5.99 lakhs (ex-Delhi). The car has an old retro Jeep styling with a muscular butch design and image. It is a solid combo of robust engine, gear transmission and body chassis. The car is a bundle of energy, power and torque and is always ready for roar on any terrain. The car is also easy to handle with the handy power steering and the zero turbo-lag ensures that the car can also be tamed for driving in the city. The car has a comfy feel and excellent ride quality, be it the rough terrains or the jungle paths. The gear box comes in a manual 4x4 shift and its Off-road capabilities will make even the terrains fear in its name. The car in spite of its robust nature is available with warranty, parts and labour support from authorized service stations.

It does have some lapses in terms of the cheap, poor looking interiors thirsty for quality. Even the outside fit, finish and rough edges all make for a poor photograph with the Thar. The car lacks air-conditioner and lockable hardtop making it a once in a while drive in the oasis. The highly complicated front IFS is a huge off-road limitation and it is heavy on the pockets in case of a damage or repair. The occupants and the driver must be in top physique for the car has no sense of ergonomics like the completely irritatingly placed pedal position, off-center steering etc. The car rattles with nervous energy when you are nearing the 100 kph mark. The average capacity of the off road capabilities of the car come to fore front due to the independent front suspension. Above all the below par service support from the company and the lack of knowledge from the unskilled labours with regard to the 4x4 Jeeps is a huge let down with respect to the Thar.

The Thar is for the exploring kind who cares for nothing and comes at quite an affordable price point. The only real threat to the Thar could be the Gypsy. Then again the Gypsy is not available in diesel, power steering nor does it have a decent ride quality. This gives Mahindra to further its net in terms of the potential market for this enigmatic 4x4. The Thar would be a sure shot for the likes of off roaders who were looking for a cheaper option. It will also be on the books of people looking for an off-road beast and a highway Jeep at the price of one. People looking for a rugged beast for their agricultural work, night patrols in the jungles and bad roads will book the Thar. It will also be in the liking for people looking for a jeep with no hassles. If you are a newbie in the adventure zone then the Thar will be a good starting point and does not need much time, know how or resources to maintain the jeep. People looking for a style statement in the name of adventure will also take a liking for the Thar. The Thar will also be a favorite with the occasional adventurer looking for a second jeep option and the rest of the people looking for a vehicle that has got to do anything with a jeep.
