Willys Jeep might not have been the original off-roader, but it is one of the most popular. The car helped win wars, redefined the idea of simplicity and was all in all just a lot of fun. Continuing that tradition Mahindra presented us with multiple generations and iteration of the SUV and now there is one which is absolutely oriented around the idea of ‘go anywhere’ touring – the Mahindra Roxor.

Pricelist

Mahindra Roxoer is assembled in USA. the assembly is carried out in Motown Detroit, Michigan. Roxor will only be sold in North America and prices will start at Rs. 10.14 Lakh or $15,000. The car is not road legal and has been designed solely to take on off-roading duties. This is the reason why Mahindra Roxor only has one variant.

Mahindra Roxor is based on the outgoing model of Mahindra Thar, which is the reason behind the aesthetical similarities between the two cars. Roxor has been stripped to bare bones and comes with multiple optional extras like side view mirrors, soft top, winch, light bar, rear view mirrors, off-road tires, grab handles and audio system. Roxor is also offered with 900 colour wrap options. Roxor comes with a redesigned grille and it seems Mahindra has updated the the grille by taking cues from the design language used in XUV500.

Dimension

The ground clearance of Roxor has been increased over the standard Thar CRDe to accommodate the off-roading tyres and suspension. Roxor is also smaller, skinnier and shorter than Thar. The compact dimensions make Roxor light on its feet and with its bare bone construction, it can tread anywhere.

The interior of Roxor can best be described as ‘function over comfort’. Other than the steering wheels and two seat boxes, one gets little in terms of interior features. To accompany the driver there are gauges and optional extras like side and rear-view mirrors and audio system.
