Now a days Mahindra Thar Crde is eye catching and having a 4wd and 105bhp power.
So planned to buy a Mahindra Thar Crde.But my friend suggest me a Thar DI 4x4.He says Thar Crde having a maintenance issue on front IFS(Independent front Suspension).He also talk about mileage overall ( city+highway) is 13kmpl.But Thar DI 4x4 gives 16kmpl.
I am totally confused between two.I am not a Heavy off roader.Off roading on very rare times.USe the Jeep like a normal car on decent roads.
But i expect 16kmpl.
Thar Crde or Thar DI 4x4 Suggest me experts.
Also provide some Disadvantages and issues of both two..! i am waiting guys.
1. If you want a car for normal use on decent roads, then it's no point choosing a Thar.
2. Thar CRDe does face a problem with IFS in cases of extreme off roading.
3. Basically Thar CRDe is aimed at urban population while the Thar Di is for the rural population. Also to comply to BS4 regulations only CRDe is offered in Metros.
4. Mileage:- it's obvious that one wouldn't use a 4*4 mode in city or normal highway roads, so expect a 17kmpl (crde engine gives a maximum of 21 if driven at 60kmph).
CRDe Versus Di.
CRDe:- a very powerful refined silent engine with less issues. Service can be done only at authorized Mahindra workshops.
Di:- Old technology and crude compared to CRDe, but easy on repair as any road side mechanic can work on it in case of repairs. Also a way lot cheaper on cost at purchase.
So if you are a Jeep lover fallen for the looks of the Thar, then you can consider a Thar Di if in rural area and save money, else have to settle on Thar CRDe if use is primarily in urban areas.
