Barely a few days back, Mahindra launched the updated Thar but all the changes were limited to the CRDe version only. You can read about the changes and features here. However, the company has now also started offering the more basic Thar DI with an optional power steering.
They have updated the official website with the details and prices. Until now, Thar DI was offered with a mechanical steering but now with the softer steering things will definitely be a little easy on the shoulders. Both the 2WD as well as the 4WD get power steerings – on the 4 Wheel Drive it is standard, whereas on the 2 Wheel Drive, it is an optional extra.

- Thar DI 2WD: Rs 5,21,955
