There is no hiding the fact that Mahindra has been working on a 5-door version of the Thar for quite some time now. It is expected to be called ‘Thar Armada’ as the brand filed a patent for the moniker and it would launch around 15th August. The upcoming SUV was recently spotted on the Indian roads and the new spy shots do reveal some new details.

The spy shots reveal that the Thar Armada will come with a new set of circular headlamps in the front. They would be LED units along with a projector setup. The marker lights on the front fenders would still be there along with fog lamps in the bumper. Apart from this, there is a slightly revised grille that does look more aggressive than the one found on the three-door Thar.

At the rear, there is a new set of tail lamps that use LED units. There is also a new design for the alloy wheels which are expected to measure 18-inches in size. The lower variants will come with steel wheels.

The main difference between the 3-door Thar and the 5-door Thar is the wheelbase size. The 5-door will get a longer wheelbase which would help Mahindra in adding a set of rear doors for the rear occupants. This would help in making the ingress and egress better.
