It is expected to be launched in the next few months. But before the Scorpio, Mahindra is expected to launch a 9-seater variant of the Bolero Neo, the Bolero Neo Plus. In today’s article will be discussing this Rs 12 lakh Mahindra SUV.
Rs 12 lakh Mahindra SUV design
The Bolero Neo Plus will look similar to the Bolero Neo. The side profile will get an extended look due to the extra row. The car will look big and boxy. The rear profile will be identical to the Bolero Neo. It is expected to get new headlights to differentiate it from the Bolero.
As the Bolero Neo Plus will be the extended version of the Bolero Neo. It is expected to be 400mm longer and 40mm wider than the normal Bolero Neo. The ground clearance will be 184mm as the Bolero Neo. The Bolero Neo Plus will be powered by a 2.2-litre mHwak diesel engine. It is the same engine that powers the Scorpio, but Mahindra will use a lower tune of this engine for the Boleo Neo plus. The engine produces 140bhp and 320Nm of torque. It will come with only manual gearbox options.
Rs 12 lakh Mahindra SUV features
It will carry forward a lot of features from the Bolero Neo. It will come with features like the 7.0-inch infotainment system, keyless entry, glove-box cooling, power steering, voice control and steering mounted controls. This extended variant will get bigger jumper seats at the rear.
The Bolero Neo starts from Rs 8.48 lakhs and goes to Rs 10.69 lakhs(on-road, Mumbai). So the Bolero Neo Plus is expected to cost Rs 35,000 to Rs 50,000 more depending on the Variants. We expect the car to launch this year, maybe in the festive season.
