Variant Recommendation


If you are searching for an impressive SUV, the Thar should be on your consideration list. The two variants available are : the AX Optional and LX. The LX Diesel RWD with manual transmission is a great option, offering excellent value for money. The LX variant is available with additional features and automatic transmission. It comes at an extra cost of Rs 1.29 lakh or more if you opt for the petrol option. Though if you desire a substantial SUV with off-road capabilities, the AX Optional 4WD is the most cost-effective choice, but it has fewer features.

    Mahindra Thar
    ₹ 11.25 - ₹ 17.60 Lakh

    Maruti Suzuki has launched a new affordable off-roader that directly competes with the Mahindra Thar. Although the Thar has a more muscular appearance and a larger SUV presence, the Jimny excels in interior features. Jimny ,falls short in power and torque figures as it lacks a diesel engine and does not offer an RWD powertrain option. On the other hand, the Jimny has a more practical cabin layout with two rows and five doors. Despite this, the absence of a diesel powertrain makes the Jimny less attractive compared to the Mahindra Thar. Additionally, the Jimny does not have a commanding road presence like the Thar.
