The interior of the forthcoming Mahindra Thar 5-door leaked before its official market introduction, and images of it are currently doing the rounds online. A larger infotainment system with buttons at the bottom is visible in the spy photos. The 3-door variant of the car currently comes with a 7-inch touchscreen head unit from Mahindra. The other HVAC vents and controls, however, still appear to be the same as before in the spy photos. However, the cup holders and center armrest have just been added. In addition, Mahindra has upgraded the upholstery on the seats. The SUV's three-door model has an ex-showroom starting price of Rs 10.54 lakh in India. In contrast, the upcoming five-door variant is anticipated to cost more, perhaps between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 18 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom.
