Mahindra is going to launch the Thar 5-door model in India very soon and according to the latest report by Autocar India, it will be offered with a 1.5 diesel engine. Well, this means that the Mahindra is trying to make the 5-door Thar or Armada more affordable for the buyers in the country. The engine is the same one that is present on the 3-door Thar RWD variant. Most importantly, it is expected that the SUV will be an entry-level in the Mahindra line-up.

The Mahindra Armada is expected to offer three engine options and that includes two diesel engines and a petrol engine. According to some sources, the unofficial booking for the SUV has already started and the price announcement will be made in the upcoming months.

Even though the engine is offered on the three door Thar but it is likely that the engine will be offered with different tuning. The 5-door model can compete with the likes of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. On the other hand, the SUV can be opted as a more rugged version of the Scorpio-N.
