The petrol trims come with a 2-litre powertrain that generates 150 bhp of power, while the 2.2-litre diesel variants churn out 130 BHP of power. 

All the variants of new Thar come with a four-wheel drive set up. 

The company said it has opened the booking of the model from Friday and the deliveries would begin from next month. 

"Over the years, the Thar has been a part of Mahindra's rich history and has found its way into the hearts of many as an object of desire," M&M Managing Director Pawan Goenka said. 

In its all-new avatar, Thar is a notch higher in its appeal, owing to its ability to be as comfortable on paved roads, as it has always been off-road, he added. 

"We are confident that the Thar tribe will grow stronger as a new set of customers come into its fore, in addition to the traditionalists," Goenka said. 

Designed and engineered in India, the new Thar will be manufactured at the company's Nashik plant. 

The iconic model now comes with various features like 17.7 cm touchscreen infotainment system, adventure statistics display, cruise control, among others.
