Tata is bringing a new design car to rival the Mahindra Thar

When it comes to getting a taste of off-roading in an SUV, the first name that comes to mind is the Mahindra Thar. It is simply unique in terms of decor and features.


But if you get this same feature in any other car available in India, you have to spend a lot more than the price of Thar. Which is why the Mahindra Thar has been added to the list of unrivaled models. Meanwhile, Mahindra's main rival, Tata, is unwilling to leave the Suchagra Medini without a fight. So this time Tata is going to bring a new car to give the Thar a tough competition. How will that be? Let's find out.
