New Mahindra Bolero takes shape. Spy pics surface

Recommended Posts

I believe that TUV300 will be replacing the Quanto, since they both will be sharing parts, and as we all know that Quanto ain't doing that well. Also Mahindra plans to not discontinue the Bolero but there is a rumour that as soon as the parts based production run is over they are gonna pull the plug on the Quanto. Anyways I have to admit that the TUV300 looks good except the rear where it reminds me of the Quanto and the disproportionately small tyres.

After the tussle between the designers and engineers, its usually the tire size that takes a blow for the sake of fuel economy. And that is disastrous to the overall look of the car. And what were they thinking, of squarish wheel arches, looks like a kid's drawing. Can't believe that this is coming from the same company who brings out the XUV 500. Weirdly though, the old Bolero still has its own charm with its good proportions and clean lines. Designers are sadlly taking a yawn these days, give us more, you guys!

Mahindra recently launched a new Bolero Power Plus Special Edition priced at Rs 9.08 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), which means it costs about Rs 22,000 more than the top-spec Bolero Power Plus ZLX. 

To the exterior, Mahindra has added new Special Edition decals, front and rear scuff plates, fog lamps, a rear spoiler with a stop light and new alloy wheels. The cabin of the limited-edition Bolero Power Plus gets new special Edition seat and steering wheel covers and carpet mats. 

Found this walkaround giving a closer look at it:

Looks like the updated BS6-compliant Bolero will be launching soon! Came across this video giving an up-close look at all that has changed inside and out.

Mahindra has finally announced pricing for the BS6-compliant Bolero facelift! Prices are identical to the BS4 variant price. But it does now get updated variant nomenclature and is sold in three variants – the lower-spec B4 (Rs 7.98 lakh), the mid-spec B6 (Rs 8.64 lakh), and the top-spec B6(O) (Rs 8.99lakh).

Came across this walkaround giving a detailed look at the base B4 variant.

The article mentions it will be priced 70k higher that the outgoing BS4, even with a tiny 1.5 engine, though an efficient one. Never liked 3 cyl engines (save for the incredible TFG by Koenigsegg).

Biggest question is where have they packaged the DPF?! ANd what will be its implications in the PMS/preventive maintenance? This will be especially crucial for its BMT/Pik-Up siblings.
