Mahindra is gearing up for its biggest launch this year with the Five-door Thar SUV nearing its production version. The upcoming SUV has been spotted testing recently ahead of its expected launch next month. The latest spy shots have revealed several new details about the upcoming Maruti Jimny, Force Gurkha rival. The iconic off-road SUV is likely to be called the Thar Armada. Mahindra had recently filed a patent for the moniker ahead of the launch.

Mahindra Five-door Thar: Exterior design

Mahindra Five-door Thar SUV’s latest spy shots have revealed that the model will get updated designs compared to its three-door version on several counts. The SUV is expected to get a different grille than its smaller version as can be seen on the heavily camouflaged test mule spotted in Kerala. The grille on the Five-door Thar will be a mix of the traditional five slats with a vertical bar running through it.Mahindra has not used such a design on its grille in any of its SUVs so far.

The spy shots also reveal new design elements at the rear. There is a large and chunky cover added to the spare wheel mounted on the door. The SUV is also expected to get a redesigned LED taillight unit that will make it stand apart from the smaller version.

Mahindra is also expected to equip the upcoming Five-door Thar with other changes in terms of design. These may include a new set of LED headlight unit, circular DRLs and LED fog lamps. The design of the 18-inch alloy wheels, as can be seen in both spy shots, is likely to remain similar to the ones used on three-door Thar.
