Safety is the new trend! Is it for real? Well, Indians have definitely started considering safety as an aspect while buying a new car. The latest Indian car to undergo the crash test was the Mahindra Thar. Although the offroader has got a 4-star safety rating for both child and adult occupants, we expected more.

Additionally, yesterday’s crash test report made the fact crystal clear that this Indian off-roader is definitely catering its occupants’ safety. The Global NCAP is a very reliable source (according to us) and we should definitely trust the ratings and choose accordingly.
Can Mahindra Thar be a family car?
Are you a family man who loves adventures? Well, Mahindra has launched just the perfect thing for you. With the availability of ISOFIX mounts and the automatic transmission, you can be sure about the fact that you can drive this off-roader within the city too. Although the old-gen Thar seemed to be an off-roader only, the new one doesn’t fail to impress as a family car as well.
Is Thar good for a long drive?
If you like long drives, this can be the perfect pick for you because you won’t have to worry about the terrains or road conditions anymore. If you take the back seat, a long journey in this one can be difficult. This is because the rear seats feel a bit suffocated. You don’t have any openings and can enjoy the views through the glass only. Looks good, but not for long. In our opinion, you can have a good long journey only if you take turns.
Is new Thar worth buying?
Yes, the latest generation of the Indian offroader has been designed to cater to a wide set of an audience where you have got both petrol and diesel engines along with the availability of an automatic transmission! If you buy this, you can be sure about the fact that it is perfect for city drives and is obviously a good fit for offroading. The 4-star Global NCAP rating came as an icing on the cake making it the perfect choice in its segment currently available in the market.
What is the mileage of Mahindra Thar?
The ARAI certified figures for this Indian off-roader are from 13kmpl to 15.2 kmpl. The least figure is delivered by the diesel manual variant while the automatic petrol variant delivers the highest efficiency in the lineup.
Why does Thar have two gears?
Most of you might already know but for those who don’t know, the 2 gear levers seen on this off-roader serve two different functions. The first one is actually the gear lever while the second smaller one is for shifting between the drive modes. You can switch between 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive using this one.
