Here's a walkaround video of the Bolero in its BS-6 avatar. And with its arrival at dealerships, it is evident that the car will launch soon
Mahindra would soon be launching the Bolero in its BS-6 avatar. We earlier reported of the leaked spy shots of the car without any camouflage, whatsoever. However, today we came across a walkaround video of the car on YouTube uploaded by Ajay Pal. In the video, the host explains about the changes that the car gets with the BS-6 update. The updated Bolero is yet to be launched in the Indian market, but the car has started reaching the dealerships now.
Starting from the front facet of the car, it gets a redesigned face, which looks digitized in comparison to the outgoing car. The headlamps now feature LED DRLs with black inserts inside the headlamp cluster. The radiator grille sitting in between the new headlamp unit is also new with just two chrome slats beneath the Mahindra logo. The front bumper is a resculpted unit and gets redesigned housing for the fog lamps. There’s not much that has changed on the sheet metal, but the bonnet features slightly different creases now. On the sides, there’s hardly any change to talk about, apart from the new stickers and variant badging. The rear facet, although, features a new design for the tail lamps, but that is the only change with this update.
In terms of mechanicals, the updated Bolero continues to feature independent front suspension with coil-overs and a rigid axle with leaf springs at the rear. However, the big change in the updated Bolero is the BS-6 compliant engine. It is the updated version of the 1.5L 3-cylinder turbo-diesel unit seen on the Power Plus variant of the car. It will have a peak power out of 71 HP and 195 Nm of max. torque, and will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The updated Bolero features a refreshed front fascia.
On the inside, the Bolero features the same dashboard layout as the outgoing car, but with a darker shade of brown, this time. The interior of the Bolero can be best described as utilitarian. Though, it possesses a long list of features. It gets all-4 power windows, manually operated air-conditioning, single-din music system, dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, seat-belt warning, high-speed alerts, fully-digital instrument cluster, manually adjustable IRVM, and rear parking sensors. Also, Mahindra will now launch the Bolero in just 3 trim options – B4, B6, B6(O), whereas the outgoing car is offered in a total of 4 trims – LX, SLE, SLX, and ZLX.
