Upcoming Mahindra Cars in India in the Next Two Years

Upcoming Mahindra Cars

Here’re launch and other details of the upcoming new Mahindra cars in India.

Famous for its utility and sports utility vehicles, the home-grown auto major, Mahindra & Mahindra ruled the segment for long. Ironically, it started losing ground in the segment when SUVs became a rage in India. Carmakers like Maruti Suzuki , Hyundai and Tata Motors are now giving tough rivalry to Mahindra in the UV space. Determined to regain lost ground in the segment, Mahindra has planned a slew of launches in the next two years. The company aims to expand its product portfolio with multiple new models and next-generation versions of its existing SUV range. Here’s a look at all upcoming Mahindra cars in India in 2020 and 2021.

Upcoming Mahindra Cars in 2020, 2021

1. New-Gen Mahindra Thar

2020 Mahindra Thar Launch Date

Thar has been among top favourites among off-road enthusiasts in India. But it’s a pretty old product now and still has a decade old platform that’s certainly can’t be considered safe. That’s why it surely requires a generation change, and that’s exactly what Mahindra is planning to do. This is surely one of our top favourites among all upcoming Mahindra cars in India. Though no official word on its launch date yet, we hope it to go on sale in coming months.

The 2020 Mahindra Thar will have to have a better structure to clear the crash test. The off-road SUV will witness comprehensive design and feature upgrades along with a new set of engines. The new-generation model will come with the BS6-compliant 140bhp, 2.2L diesel and a new 190bhp, 2.0L mStallion petrol engine options. Both manual and automatic (a new unit) gearboxes will be on offer.
