The Mahindra Bolero has been one of the toughest passenger vehicles to be ever made by an Indian brand. The Bolero can tread on bad patches with the same stride as on the smooth city roads. The Bolero has been waiting for a proper upgrade for some time. The news in the market is that the brand is planning to bring the TUV300 facelift with the Bolero Neo nameplate. In this article, we will discuss what new the brand might bring in the Mahindra Bolero Neo vs the current Bolero.
The Bolero is a muscular car with a bold style of its own. The Mahindra Bolero Neo is however expected to come with a fresh design along with modern styling cues similar to the TUV300. Elements like new headlamps with LED DRLs, new tail-lights, new alloy wheels, new front grille and new bumpers with updated styling are expected. These updates would make the Mahindra Bolero a much modern-looking product. The spare tyre attached at the rear of the vehicle is something kept common with the current Bolero.
The Bolero does come with modern features like open door alert, trip distance and digital instrument cluster, however, we expect the Bolero Neo to come with features like a touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation, steering-mounted controls, rear parking camera, front seats with adjustable lumbar support, driver and co-driver armrests, electrically adjustable ORVMs and rear AC vents.
The Bolero, which is being currently sold in the country, is a solid-built product. It, however, lacks some safety features which are being adopted by most other brands as standard these days, like engine immobilizer, dual airbags and auto door-lock while driving. The Bolero Neo is also expected to get these features along with ABS with EBD and cornering brake control to make it a much safer product to be in.
Mahindra Bolero Neo vs Bolero Other Changes
The Mahindra Bolero Neo is expected to offer some other updates like a 1.5-litre mHawk diesel engine and a 1.2-litre mStallion turbo-petrol engine, an AMT transmission and rear-wheel drive on offer. The Bolero Neo is expected to come with much premium front-facing seats instead of side-facing seats in order to attract higher safety ratings which can bring in more customers for the Mahindra brand.
The Mahindra Bolero in all these years has been a successful product for the Mahindra brand. We do not see Mahindra discontinuing the Bolero since it has brought great success to the brand and Mahindra would not want to put an axe on this trend. With the new one coming anytime soon, we expect to see the Bolero continuing its charm.
