Mahindra and Mahindra has launched the updated Bolero in India, priced at Rs 7.76 lakh, ex-showroom, Mumbai. The update has given the Mahindra Bolero a tweak in the design, which is essentially on the front facia with a new headlight design, bolder grille that carries the signature Mahindra theme and also a new bumper that houses the fog lights. The most important update given to the Bolero is the BSVI compliant mHawk75 diesel engine, that comes with Mahindra's micro hybrid tech.
While the overall silhouette of the Bolero remains unchanged, the SUV now sports new decals and clear lens tail lights. The cabin too has gone through a mild revision with more comfortable seats, mentions Mahindra. The facelifted Bolero continues to come with a digital info screen showing the essentials of fuel efficiency, distance to empty, doors open etc. The SUV is offered with a bluetooth and AUX compatible audio system, which looks a tad too basic, especially when you compare it with modern CarPlay and AndroidAuto enabled systems offered in hatchbacks half the price of Bolero. In terms of safety, the SUV comes with driver side airbag, ABS and reverse parking sensor as standard. It is also the only vehicle in India to be offered with metal bumpers to comply with pedestrian norms.
