Mahindra Customisation has created an extreme off-road version of the Bolero and dubbed it the Bolero ‘Attitude’.
Mahindra Bolero is one of the most popular Utility Vehicles in India, known for its rugged nature and bare-bones basic design. The 2020 Bolero (facelift) tried to liven things up a bit, by changing the design to a more rounded look, but overall the UV still maintains the same boxy design as before. Now, however, Mahindra has decided that it can give the Bolero an extensive makeover with the help of its in-house customisation team.
The modified Mahindra Bolero we see in the pictures here is called ‘Attitude’. The vehicle has been developed by Mahindra Customisation and sports many major changes over the regular version, which we shall list here. First of all, the orange and grey paint scheme is extremely unique and eye-catchy. The front end of the car has a custom bumper with large air vents in the middle as well as the sides, along with two integrated foglamps. The number plate is flanked by two tow hooks on either side. The headlights have a rather bizarre design, with three individual lamps on each side. You also get a triangular-shaped indicator below the headlight housings.
To add a little more off-road flavour, the Bolero gets a snorkel. The opening on that snorkel is adorned with a Mahindra logo. The silhouette of the car is drastically different, with the Bolero being turned into a two-door pickup. The alloy wheels are new as well and are shod with high profile tyres. There is a pickaxe mounted on the side, which looks extremely cool. At the rear, we see a pair of custom taillamps with a three-part design. Instead of a tail-mounted wheel, we get a pair of jerry cans. The spare wheel is now mounted on the bed of the vehicle. There are also two pairs of auxiliary lights mounted at the top on the bed bars, which completes the utilitarian look.
The interior of the car has the same orange and grey colour scheme as the exterior. The dashboard, instrument console, AC vents, etc, are all new. The steering wheel is completely leather-wrapped but misses out on audio and cruise controls. The infotainment system is also quite basic- a 1DIN MP3 player with USB connectivity. You also get custom mats and reading lights for the only two seats in the cabin.
