After driving regular hatchbacks, sedans & crossovers week after week, we enjoy driving such "different" vehicles. Mahindra says it is based on an all-new platform. But for a Thar, it is revolutionary! You’ll either have to do some jugaad by squeezing smaller bags on the sides of the rear seat (on the wheel arches) or hope for someone to design a carrier / temporary storage net hanging out from the back (like the old Jeeps). Will surely be a different experience from offroading in my far simpler & basic Classic. At 120 km/h, tyre / road noise is prominent as well. The single time that the Thar is settled & flat is when it’s standing in one place :D. And yes, just to clarify, I did check the cold tyre pressures with my Michelin gauge.
