The Mahindra Bolero has see a sharp increase in sales over the past few months. In the month of march it was the best selling Mahindra product with sales doubling and surpassing the XUV300 too. Now what makes this old SUV from Mahindra a good choice and why are people buying one?

Rugged Workhorse

The Bolero is the only sub four meter SUV with a ladder on frame design in our market. It is used in rural conditions, by police and government groups because of its rugged reliability. The ground clearance of the Bolero is more than sufficient for the Indian roads, offered at 180 mm. The Mahindra Bolero comes with the leaf springs at the rear so that it could bear more stress with heavier loads in the rear.
