Mahindra To Equip Thar Armada With ADAS Level 2, Panoramic Sunroof

Mahindra’s highly awaited launch, the Thar 5-door which would likely be named Thar Armada is going to get a few segment-first features such as ADAS Level 2 and Panoramic Sunroof. Bookings are open unofficially at certain dealerships for now.

Mahindra Thar Armada to get Segment-first features

The ADAS Level 2 safety net might include lane-keep assist, forward collision warning & assistance, blind-spot monitoring and more. Only the higher-end variants of the Thar Armada will get the ADAS Level 2 alongside other high-end features like dual 10.25-inch displays (touchscreen infotainment and digital instrument cluster), and all-LED lighting, to name a few.

The recent spy shots also reveal that the Thar 5-door will feature a dual-pane sunroof, which is likely to be integrated into the top-end variant. The test mules that were spotted earlier all had a single-pane sunroof which is likely to be there in the mid-spec variant. Upon launch, the Thar 5-door will be the only ladder-frame SUV in India to come with a panoramic sunroof.

Apart from that, the SUV will be offered with 3 wheel designs – Steel ones for the entry-level variants, alloys for the mid-spec and diamond-spec alloys for top-spec.

The Thar Armada will have 3 engine options to choose from – an entry-level 1.5-litre diesel to provide a competitive price, a 2.2-litre diesel and a 2.0-litre turbo petrol. Expect the 1.5-litre diesel to have an RWD setup and the 4WD option to be offered with only the 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre turbo-petrol variants.

Interestingly, unofficial bookings for the Thar Armada have already started at dealerships despite no announcement from Mahindra yet. Once it goes live, the SUV will lock horns with the new Force Gurkha 5-door and Maruti Suzuki Jimny.
