Mahindra recently launched the Bolero Neo in India. The Bolero name is iconic in the Indian market. The Bolero Neo is essentially an updated TUV300, repositioned as a modern and more feature-packed variant within the Bolero range. Through Bolero Neo, Mahindra is looking to give Bolero customers an alternative option that caters to the needs of modern buyers. The Neo tries to combine the rugged nature of the Bolero and the comfort of modern cars. In today’s article will discuss why you should buy the Mahindra Bolero Neo compact SUV.

The Multi-Terrain Technology (MTT) which will be offered in the top-spec variant in the coming time will be quite useful on bad roads. The ground clearance of the Bolero Neo at 180 mm is more than sufficient for the Indian roads. With this being said, it is equally relevant to people staying in urban cities as well.

The cabin of the Bolero Neo is a big step-up from the regular Bolero. The ingress and egress are a lot easier. The Neo has chair-like front seats that offer a lot of space and comfort. The second row is wide and can easily seat three people at the back. The last row can be used for short trips or by children or can easily be converted into a huge luggage storage space by closing the jumper seats.
The Bolero Neo is powered by a 1.5-litre mHawk diesel engine that makes 100bhp and 260Nm of torque. which is more than enough for this car. The engine comes mated to a five-speed manual and a rear-wheel-drive system. The 1.5-litre engine perfectly complements the usage of buyers that the brand is targeting with this offering.
