BS-6 compliant Mahindra Bolero with refreshed front face has been spied at a dealer stockyard, hinting at a launch in the month of April.
Mahindra Bolero is one of the best-selling UVs of the country. It is in the market for quite a long time now, and even with the new emission norms coming in, the carmaker has no plans to discontinue the car. Along with receiving a Bharat Stage 6, the 1.5L Power Plus model has even received a makeover that makes it look a tad fresher. The updated car is expected to be launched anytime soon from now as the BS-6 Bolero with an updated face has been spied without any camouflage at what looks like a dealer stockyard.
The updated Bolero features a smart futuristic front-end.
The spy pictures reveal that the car’s front face has now been updated to meet the new pedestrian safety norms. With the nose-job, the BS-6 Bolero gets itself a new bumper, grille, and headlamps that help it look more appealing than the outgoing car. The headlamps now feature LED DRLs, black inserts and chrome elements to make it look more premium than the BS-4 Bolero. Apart from these cosmetic changes, rest everything is still in line with the old-school boxy design theme of the Bolero. The interior of the BS-6 Bolero is also expected to feature a few styling changes in a bid to step-up the overall ambience inside the car.
Talking of the mechanicals, it will get a BS-6 compliant 1.5L 3-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with a peak power output of 71 HP and 195 Nm of max. torque. The transmission duties on the updated Bolero will be performed by a 5-speed manual gearbox. The outgoing Bolero in its BS-4 avatar also uses this same mHawk D70 engine, but with a rated output of 70 HP only. It is currently offered in 4 trim levels namely, LX, SLE, SLX, and ZLX, whereas the updated Bolero will be sold in 3 trim levels – B4, B6, and B6 (O).
With the BS-6 update, the Bolero will get dearer by Rs.50,000 at least.
Currently, the prices for the Mahindra Bolero start at Rs. 7.61 lakh. The entry-level LX variant, is available only for government officials, while the top-end ZLX variant retails at an ex-showroom price of Rs. 8.99 lakh. With the new styling update and BS-6 compliant engine, expect the Bolero to get dearer by Rs. 50,000 or more. That said, the MUV will not face any competition in the market now, as its only competitor – Tata Sumo - has long been discontinued.
