5-Door Upcoming Mahindra Thar vs 3-Door Thar Comparison
5-Door Upcoming 2023 Mahindra Thar vs 3-Door Thar Off-Road SUV Comparison
Mahindra will expand the Thar range with the 5-door version which is now due in 2022 or early 2023. Mahindra may give the 5-door Thar a new name – Armada. The Thar has been a huge success and currently is selling in big numbers with a large no of bookings already. The waiting list is high and that means the wait is long for the 3-door. That has made the launch of the 5-door more late. However to cater to a larger audience, the 5-door Thar version is expected to be launched by the end of next year. The 5-door Thar is aimed at families who wanted a Thar but the 3-door version was too small. The 5-door Thar would be longer than the 3,985 mm long Thar. It will have a longer wheelbase ensuring more cabin space with the rear seats now fitting three passengers and bigger boot-space for luggage. The extra two doors will mean ingress and egress is easier. That will make the 5-door Thar more practical and even more so, since it can now be used as a daily use vehicle. That said vs the three door Thar, the off road ability might be reduced with extra size affecting the off-road angles. Of course, it will be standard with 4x4 of course and no changes would be made to the off-road capabilities as such.
The 5-door Thar would be less agile than the 3-door. The handling would be affected and so would be the weight which also affects the fuel efficiency, in turn. We do not expect any major change with the interior or the new engines but to make it more attractive, the 5-door Thar might have more power with its diesel engine tuned to handle the extra weight. The 5-door Thar will get a few additional comfort and connectivity features
We expect both the soft top and the hard top to be offered with the Thar 5-door while prices would increase by a lakh over the 3-door version starting at around Rs 13.25 lakhs. It would rival the 5-door Maruti Suzuki Gypsy Jimny Off-road SUV expected to be launched in Q1/2022.
