All about Upcoming 2020 Mahindra Thar vs Next-gen Force Gurkha Off-road SUVs ✓ Specification ✓ Price ✓ Mileage ✓ Color ✓ Features ✓ ABS ✓ Comparison.

The all-new Mahindra Thar has been spotted undergoing testing on the public roads yet again. In the latest sighting, the off-roader has been snapped in the diesel automatic version. Mahindra has confirmed an automatic gearbox option for the new Thar in a bid to widen its appeal. And the shot of the gear lever tells us this is the automatic-equipped version of the Thar. The new Thar will also come with a new 2.0-litre petrol unit from Mahindra’s mStallion engine family, and it features direct injection as well as turbocharging. Gearbox options for the petrol will likely include 6-speed manuals and automatics. A four-wheel-drive system will be available with both engines.

Force Motors has begun road-testing its next-gen Gurkha; the model was spotted on the outskirts of Pune recently. The second-gen SUV is expected to be underpinned by the same architecture as the Gurkha Xtreme, which brought with it a new multi-link suspension setup, a low-range transfer case and other off-road gear. Under the hood, the new Gurkha will come with an updated 2.2-litre diesel engine that will clear BS6 norms, which come into effect on April 1, 2020. The next-gen Gurkha will also come loaded with “more creature comforts” than the outgoing model, according to people in the know.

2020 Mahindra Thar vs Next-gen Force Gurkha – Design

Exterior:- Mahindra Thar 2020 has created quite a lot of buzz in recent times and has also been spotted on-tests several times in the past. The new-gen 2020 Thar will look broader than the previous model. Overall, it will carry some of its iconic design characteristics such as the rounded headlamps, flat bonnet, brick-shaped rear lights (LEDs) and more. It will now also come with LED daytime running lights on the front fenders which make it look more modern and appealing. The 2020 Thar SUV is likely to get 18-inch alloys and power-folding mirrors.

The next-gen Gurkha will also come loaded with more creature comforts than the outgoing model, according to people in the know. This will help the company position the Gurkha as a stronger rival to the all-new Mahindra Thar, which is also expected to be more refined than its predecessor. a closer look reveals that the portion aft of the front doors gets design changes, including a single window replacing the dual-pane unit seen on the outgoing model. Additionally, the company is also expected to give the new Gurkha a fresh exterior design, which will still mimic the current model’s retro styling.

Interior:- From the Inside, the upcoming Mahindra Thar will use a fresh layout for the dashboard and expect top-spec trims to feature a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a colour multi-info display in the instrument cluster, a rear parking camera and multiple USB ports. Standard safety kit will include dual airbags, ABS and rear parking sensors. another major update will be seen in the form of front facing seats in the second row. This will ensure more safety and space for the passengers at the back.

The Force Motors Gurkha has a good presence in the utility vehicle segment in both the urban and rural regions across the nation. From the Inside, the Next-gen Gurkha is finally getting some new creature comforts like power windows and a touchscreen infotainment system. The comfort feature of air conditioning is introduced in the soft top version as well, giving a feel of comfort with soft top on. The utility features of a spacious glove box with lock and bottle holders at key locations are featured for convenience of the users, and the music system can be fitted as an accessory.
