Mahindra Thar vs Toyota Fortuner

On the other hand, the Toyota Fortuner gets all its power from the 2.8-litre engine that delivers a maximum power of 174 Bhp and 450 Nm of peak torque. This unit is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
While the Mahindra Thar rolls on CEAT A/T 255/60 R18 tyres, the Toyota Fortuner gets Bridgestone dual-terrain hybrid tyre with 265/60 R18. The Fortuner’s weight is much higher than that of the Thar, giving it an added advantage.
