Mahindra has just opened sales of the updated Thar in India. While the facelift is restricted to only the CRDe variant, there is a lot of changes that are worth noting. Starting with the looks, Mahindra has changed the front and rear bumpers. While many may argue that the earlier model looked better, the new one definitely trumps the older version in terms of buildÂ quality. Inside the cabin, you can find updated upholstery, new dashboard design and much more. While the engine hasn’t got any update, it is noticeably refined as well as smooth. Then there is the new Eaton M-lock differential. You can read all about what it’s like to drive and be ferried around in rightÂ here in our review. The Thar we got to drive was a bright, fiery tint that Mahindra calls Red Rage. Take a look at our images from our slushy session in the off-roader.
