This past month, Mahindra released the Bolero Neo in India at a price of Rs. 8,48,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the N4 trim and Rs. 9.998,000 for the N10 trim.

A price for the top-of-the-line N10(O) trim was not revealed at the time of launch. As a result of this, the Mahindra Bolero Neo N10(O) has been introduced at a price of Rs 10.69 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

An additional mechanically locking differential has been added to the Bolero Neo N10(O). This trim is Rs 70,000 more expensive than the N10. it’s based on the N10 trim’s equipment list

New features for the Mahindra Bolero Neo N10(O) are listed below.

Four trim levels of the Bolero Neo are offered, including the n4 and n8, as well as the n10 and n10 (O). Mahindra’s Multi-Terrain Technology (MTT) mechanically locking rear differential is the greatest and only difference between the top-spec N10(O) trim and the rest.

As a result of consumer input, Mahindra has introduced a mechanical locking differential to the top-spec Bolero Neo N10(O) model. These situations can be helped with a mechanical locking differential, which directs power to the wheel that’s grounded (and has grip), improving drivability on slippery surfaces. Although the N10(O) is based on the N10 trim, it has a completely different equipment list. A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, LED daytime running lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, steering-mounted audio controls, cruise control, air conditioning with Eco mode, front armrests, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and electronically adjustable ORVMs are all included in the vehicle’s features.

In addition to the mechanical locking differential, it adds a lot of functionality to the N10(O) trim.

A look at the foundations and powertrain of the Mahindra Bolero Neo

In addition to the Thar and Scorpio, the Bolero Neo is the only compact body-on-frame SUV in its class. As an all-wheel-drive compact SUV, it stands out even more from the crowd.

It is powered by a 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine with 100hp and 260Nm of torque, which is mated exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission. The Bolero Neo doesn’t come with an automatic transmission option, which is a shame. Engine start-stop technology and Eco and ESS (micro-hybrid) drive modes are available to maximise fuel efficiency.

Competitors of the Mahindra Bolero Neo

It’s not a direct competitor in its segment because it’s a ladder-frame, rear-wheel-drive SUV. But in the same price range, it competes with other monocoque compact SUVs such as the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Vitara Brezza, and others.
