    Seltos vs Thar

    I am looking for a new car for my daily use. I just sold my 2021 Mahindra Thar diesel manual and I want to buy the Thar diesel AT. I am also considering the Kia Seltos diesel AT, and I already have an Innova Crysta diesel AT and a Nissan Micra CVT. Is the Thar diesel AT a good choice or should I go with the Seltos?

    Autocar India says: The Thar and Seltos are very different products. Let’s be clear, the Thar – even with an automatic transmission – is not a great everyday car. The ride is bumpy and being a three-door, it lacks the comfort and practicality of the Seltos diesel that’s well-equipped and more refined. The Thar is all about emotion and lifestyle, and there is something special about its strong engine and go-anywhere capability that makes it very desirable. So your choice really depends on what you want from your new car and what your usage is going to be.

    The Mahindra XUV 300 facelift will be called the XUV 3XO. Should more brands rename models for facelifts?

    Yes, it could give new life to a slow-selling car



    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
