New Delhi: Mahindra’s new generation Thar is already a very beautiful off-roader to look at and is being well-liked by the customers. Now what to say if the off-roading appeal of this SUV is to be made more attractive. Exactly the same thing has been done by Pratap Bose, the Chief Design Officer who was associated with Mahindra sometime back. He has introduced the second generation Mahindra Thar as a Christmas edition with some changes, Pratap Bose has shared the renders of this design through his Instagram post. In this post, Santa Claus is seen flying on Mahindra Thar instead of his sly.
Mahindra Thar seen with some changes
Taking a closer look at this render photo, Mahindra Thar is seen with some changes. In this, the front bumper of the Thar is seen to be curved, which is quite different from the square design of the normal Thar. The new model is actually similar to the Thar concept shown earlier which was showcased by the company while unveiling the off-roader. The fenders have also been changed, giving a boost to the sporty look of the off-roader. The most interesting thing about the Thar is the top where the roof has not been given and it has been replaced by a tube cage that goes all the way to its rear.

Audio and multi info display can be given. Mahindra Thar comes with two engine options 2-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engine mated to 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic options.
