As Mentioned before The new Thar AX is focused towards more hardcore off-road enthusiasts whereas Thar LX is a more lifestyle product with its long list of creature comforts that we can be a daily driver. In both the variants, there are common features like removable doors and cleaning up the interiors after an off-road session should be a bit easy, as Mahindra has made drizzle-resistant (IP54 Standard) interior switches on the dashboard and a wipe-down interior with rubberised floor having drain plugs.

But we have to wait till October 2 to know the prices of  New Gen Thar, but with no doubt, Mahindra has retained the Thar’s original off-road capability also with the addition of more creature comforts to attract more buyers.
