Mahindra will offer two variants in the AX trim, which are AX and AX (O). The AX variants get a side-facing bench seats at the rear, a fixed soft-top roof and 16-inch steel wheels. In comparison, the LX model gets a hard-top roof or a soft-top, bigger 18-inch alloy wheels and front-facing seats at the rear. The side steps are tubular on the AX model, while it is platform like on the LX variants. These are of course the differences on the exterior. The base AX trim miss out on the touchscreen infotainment system, steering mounted controls and alloy wheels among others, but fear not! It will get 4x4 and a low range transfer case.

Under the hood, the Thar AX gets only the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine, no petrol. The BS6 compliant diesel unit makes 130 bhp and 300 Nm of torque and will get either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox, which is a torque converter. We expect the prices of the new-generation Mahindra Thar to start at ₹ 9 lakh or so and go up till ₹ 13 lakh.
