The demand for SUVs has increased a lot in India. Also, many people prefer huge big SUVs. Mahindra Scorpio-N has all the attention towards it as of now. But today, we would like to take the opportunity to discuss what Mahindra has in stores for the customers after the launch of the Scorpio-N. Mahindra has been focusing quite a lot on big SUVs. Now, these big SUVs come at a big cost. On many occasions, what limits buyers wanting to consider a seven-seater SUV is their budget. For this category, Mahindra has a car in the works. The brand is expected to launch this product this year. Could not guess it till now? We are referring to the new Bolero Neo Plus. In this article, we have discussed all the details about this SUV.
Dimensions and Exterior
As we know, the Bolero Neo is an updated version of the TUV300. Likewise, the Bolero Neo Plus is expected to be the extended version of the Bolero Neo, which will be based on the TUV300 Plus. The dimensions are expected to resemble the TUV300 Plus. For reference, the TUV300 Plus measured 4,400mm in length, 1,835mm wide, 1,812mm in height, and had a wheelbase of 2,680mm.
Interior and Features
As far as interior of the is concerned, we expect it to be similar to the Bolero Neo. We expect it to get all the features the Bolero Neo gets. Safety features like ABS, EBD, seat belt warning, and rear parking sensors could be a part of the package. Talking about the features, it would get all power windows, engine start-stop function, multi-terrain technology, Power AC with Eco mode, etc. Now, although the Bolero Neo gets dual airbags, we expect the Bolero Neo Plus to come with six airbags since the six airbag rule is touted to come into effect from October this year. The brand would want to be better prepared and not wait for the end moment.
New Bolero Neo Plus – Engine option
The Mahindra will mostly use a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine that would make 120bhp & 280Nm of torque. This engine is already used in the current generation Mahindra Scorpio, soon to be called the Scorpio Classic. Looking at the dimensions of the car, this engine is expected to be sufficient for a car of its size.
New Bolero Neo Plus – Price
Mahindra might charge a premium of about Rs 1 lakh to Rs 1.5 lakh for Bolero Neo Plus over the current Bolero Neo. So we expect that the lower trim of the Bolero Neo Plus might start somewhere around Rs 12.5 lakhs and the higher trim will go up to Rs 16 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
