The new Mahindra Thar Dress Kit is a custom body-kit for the SUV that can be bolted over the stock version. This includes newly designed front with a familiar seven-slat grille that sits close to the older model, while the bumper has been completely redesigned and sits higher as well. The lights are slimmer than the stock version and also get projector lens units. Do notice the bulge on the bonnet for a masculine look. The bumper also extends to the new and wider wheel arches at the side that contain the larger wheels on the SUV. The new heavy-duty tyres are clearly designed to go over any terrain with the steel rim making them off-road-ready. The suspension also gets a lift in a bid to accommodate the new wheels, while also increasing the ground clearance.
The Dress Kit also add changes to the rear that includes a new bumper, new squared taillights with a redesigned hard top completing the package. The kit also includes upgrades to the cabin but DC2 is yet to reveal the interior on the Thar Dress Kit.
