The launch of the new-generation Mahindra Thar is perhaps one of the most highly anticipated launches of the year! Mahindra took the wraps off the new Thar on August 15, 2020 and will announce the prices of October 2, 2020. Now, we have tested the SUV comprehensively and told you everything you need to know about the 2020 Thar, be it the petrol variant, diesel variant or even the automatic models. So, here is how we expect Mahindra to price the Thar. Get your cheque books ready!
Mahindra Thar AX Price Expectation
The 2020 Mahindra Thar will have two trim lines - AX and LX. The AX or adventure series will be the lower-spec trim and have less features. Within the AX range, Mahindra will offer the AX AC and the AX Optional. The Thar AX will get petrol and diesel engine options with only manual gearboxes, along with a fixed soft-top roof. We expect that the prices of the AX range will start at ₹ 9.75 lakh and top off at ₹ 11 lakh.

The LX or lifestyle series will be the higher-spec trim and have more features and creature comfort. Mahindra will aim to target a wider set of audience with the LX models, especially people who may be looking for an SUV which is rugged and comfortable to drive on a day-to-day basis as well. The LX series will be offered with a diesel engine with a manual and an automatic transmission. However, the petrol engine will have only an automatic gearbox. The prices of the LX variants could start at ₹ 11.50 lakh and go up to ₹ 13.50 lakh.
