The tagline of the 2020 BS6 Mahindra Bolero is, “Dominate any road, Take on any Terrain.” This pretty much makes the objective and aim of the SUV clear. It has been one of the most selling Mahindra products for a very long time. The Mahindra Bolero B4 costs Rs. 7.78 lakh (ex-showroom). Find out inside if you should buy the base variant of Mahindra Bolero in 2020.
Engine and Performance
The 2020 BS6 Mahindra Bolero in India comes with three variants to choose from: B4, B6, B6 (O). The engine and performance of all the three variants are common in the lineup. The B4 Mahindra Bolero comes with the mHAWK75 BS6 Diesel engine which has a fuel tank capacity of 60L.
You get a maximum power output of 55.9kW at 3600rpm and a peak torque output of 210Nm@1600-2100rpm. There are disc brakes on the rear while the front ones are drum. Overall Dimensions are also the same across all the variants.
The B4 Mahindra Bolero comes with all the safety features from the top variant like ABS, Driver airbag, Reverse Parking Sensor, Seat Belt Reminder, and Co-driver Occupant detection system. These are not much but a tough car-like Mahindra Bolero does not need many safety features. Aftermarket equipment can be installed too to increase some of the safety aspects of the SUV.
Technology and Comfort
This segment does have some features missing. The B4 variant in the technology segment gets Engine Immobilizer, Digital Cluster, and Micro-Hybrid Technology (Engine Start Stop). The SUV does not have a music system, Driver information system, and static bending headlamps.
Comfort features in the base variant include AC, Heater, De-mister, and quite comfortable 7 vinyl seats. The upper variants come with fabric seats in contrast.
Style and Convenience
Black regular ORVMs, Wheel caps, Spare wheel cover, Silver Front grille, Side Cladding and a new Flip key are provided as the styling features in the base variant of Mahindra Bolero 2020 BS6. The car primarily misses out on fog lamps and decals present in the higher variants.
Convenience features only include Power Steering and Remote Fuel Lid Opener. The SUV misses out on many features in this department. The B6 (O) variant comes with Power Windows, Central locking, Keyless Entry, Rear wash/wiper and 12V charging slot. Some of these features are quite basic and absolutely necessary. Mahindra could have included some more essential features in the base variant of the SUV.
All-in-all the SUV’s base variant is quite ideal with same performance figures as the top variant. Some essential features are missing which can be fit aftermarket. For more such content stay subscribed to the Motoroctane Youtube, Google NEWS, Facebook and Twitter.
