Mahindra Bolero will receive the necessary updates to meet new emission and safety requirements. What will be included on the new facelift Mahindra Bolero? Read out here

The upcoming emission and safety regulations are set to kick off soon. Just like other cars in the market, Mahindra will give its hot-selling Bolero updates so that it could adhere to the new regulation. It could be considered as a huge change for Bolero as this model, unlike other Mahindra vehicles from other more popular segments, has been less exposed to upgrades.

To meet the new safety norms, Mahindra Bolero will gain new safety features including driver airbag and ABS as standard across equipment across the trim line. What’s more, it is also added with seatbelt reminder warning, speed warning and rear parking sensors by July 2019. These features are the norms in the market these days, however, for such a slow-to-upgrade model like Bolero, this could be a complete overhaul.  Moreover, Mahindra will continue upgrading the package by giving more subtle updates to strengthen the offset front and side crash standards in October.

Additionally, Mahindra will have to renew the front end with a softer bumper and raised bonnet along with a revised grille, all to meet the upcoming regulation protecting the pedestrians from injuries in case of an accident.

In April 2020, new emission norm will also go into effect, which requires the Bolero as well as other vehicles to update their engines beforehand. The BSVI norm commands low-emission engine which is quite far from the recent offers on the Bolero. However. Mahindra will not replace the 2.5-litre m2Di engine with a new engine. Instead, it will go with an updated and cleaner version.

Even though sitting on a lesser known area of the market, Mahindra Bolero is selling well in an impressive number. In 2018, around 80,000 units of the Bolero was sold. And last month, Mahindra registers the sales of 7,974 units. With such a good performance, Mahindra will not let off the Bolero at any cost.
