It will get alloy wheels with chunkier spokes, new types of sleek side steps can also be found. When launched, it will completely compete with the Maruti Jimny.

The 5-door version of the Mahindra Thar is likely to get the existing powertrain options only. Which will be in line with BS-6 Phase-2. However, no information has been revealed about its powertrain options yet. Let us tell you that Mahindra recently also launched the RWD version of Thar, which can be continued in its 5-door version as well.
