Mahindra Thar is a perfect utility vehicle
Pros : Rugged looks, decent mileage, impressive engine
Cons : Lack of power windows
I stay in a small town near Lucknow and have earn my living through agriculture, I have farms and prefer to drive a rugged vehicle which is easy to drive on erratic and muddy surface. I started my hunt and few vehicles came across my notice, but the problem with most of the vehicles were that they looked nice but did not offer enough power that I was looking for. After thorough research on vehicles my eyes got stuck on Mahindra Thar which was available with air conditioner. As I keep going to nearby cities for work related to my farms therefore air conditioner was important, though this feature comes optional in the vehicle.
Mahindra Thar is armed with an impressive engine with 2523cc of displacement, the 2.5 litre NEF CRDe diesel engine that engenders a maximum power of 47 Kw and a peak torque of 182.5 Nm at 1500-1800 Rpm. The engine is harmonized to a manual transmission and the fuel tank comes with a capacity of 45 litres. Mileage is also substantial considering the size of the vehicle. Mahindra Thar in city conditions delivers a fuel economy of 11.5 kmpl while on highways it returns a mileage of 15.5 kmpl. While most of the features offered in other vehicles like hatchbacks, sedans, SUVs and MPVs are not included in this vehicle the only features which this vehicle is equipped with are air conditioner, cup holders, alloy wheels and central locking. Price wise this is the best vehicle; I did a lot of research but a vehicle like this which has a powerful engine, delivers a good performance and is muscular too. This is the best vehicle for me and nothing could have been better for me.
