For more than 70 years the legendary vehicle that is the Mahindra Thar has been at the forefront of some of the world’s most memorable adventures. This is all thanks to Mahindra’s well established relationship with the Willys Jeep, and a licensing agreement that dates back to 1945. Officially launched as a fully independent Mahindra brand in 2010, the Thar has become the modern day adventurer’s car of choice across the Indian subcontinent and beyond!
The latest iteration of the Mahindra Thar is more than simply an affordable all-terrain vehicle, it is also a tough come-what-may 4WD Recreational Vehicle (RV) that is perfect for the South African on and off road driving environment. Armed with the ever impressive Borg Warner 4WD System, there is very little the Mahindra Thar cannot handle terrain wise thanks to its amazing 2.48 crawl ratio in low-range, its remarkably high approach and departure angles of 44º and 27º respectively, and its massive overall ground clearance of 200mm.
