No, Mahindra Thar is not available with automatic transmission gearbox. All three variants of Mahindra Thar are equipped with five speed manual transmission gearbox options. Also, there is no news of Mahindra Thar automatic version launch in near future, so you should not wait for it. Ford Ecosport is the only SUV which comes below 10 Lakh price segment and available with automatic transmission gearbox.
Mahindra Thar is available in three different trims. Unfortunately, all these trims are equipped with five speed manual gearbox. The automatic gearbox is very helpful for any new driver, because it allows him to focus mainly on driving the car and not be distracted by the need to change the gear frequently. This feature is also very helpful in busy traffic conditions. However, the downside of automatic gearbox is that the fuel mileage drops significantly and the driver does not have complete control over the car.
