Mahindra, the local SUV maker is planning to launch new SUVs to the Indian market. Not just introducing new cars, the company is also upgrading the existing models to increase market share. Mahindra is set to upgrade the Bolero SUV with new features and the TUV300 facelift will be named the 2021 Bolero Neo. The leaked photos of the Bolero shows aesthetic changes to the car with a dual-tone colour scheme.
What to expect from the 2021 Mahindra Bolero and Bolero Neo?
The 2021 Bolero gets a new headlight cluster with different internals, the front fascia is however retained with the same grille and bumper design. The mid variant will also get blacked ORVMs instead of body colour units, but the mid variants miss out on fog lamps it is only offered in the top variant.
The facelifted TUV300 will be known as the Bolero Neo. The Bolero Neo will feature some similar design elements like the clamshell bonnet, squared wheel arches and headlamps. The front fascia however gets an update which includes a new grille design and reprofiled headlamps, revised alloy wheels and taillamps, and the car gets new colour options. The cabin also receives few updates like a new dashboard layout with a new touch infotainment system and new seat upholstery.
The Mahindra Bolero will be offered with the BSVI compliant 3-cylinder 1.5L mHawk diesel engine which produces 75 bhp and 210 nm of torque. This is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox that drives the rear wheels.
At this point, we are not sure about the engine options for the Bolero Neo. we can expect the same 1.5L diesel engine seen in the old TUV300 which will be BSVI compliant. Similar to its BSIV engine it could pump out 100 bhp and 240 nm of torque. The transmission options could be a 5-speed manual transmission and an AMT option.
