Launched today, 2019 Mahindra Bolero Power Plus Diwali Special Edition is special in the sense that it’s designed to cater to an enthusiastic festive marketplace. It aims to attract customers to the showroom this festive season.
Additions that add to its special status aren’t mechanical in nature but cosmetic. So, Mahindra Bolero Power Plus in this avatar features special edition decals, seat cover, carpet mats, scuff plate set, steering wheel cover, front Bumper add-on fog lamps, and spoiler with stop lamp.
In its newest avatar, with or without the special edition tag, the vehicle has had to adapt safety features. This was more than necessary considering its safety inadequateness with a compulsory crash test mandate having become effective as of October 1, 2019.
2019 Mahindra Bolero is equipped with necessary minimum airbag, anti-lock braking system (ABS). It meets crash compliance – Full Frontal Crash, Offset Frontal, and Side Impact.
Having been around in the market for almost two decades, the UV segment offering has helped boost brand image over time. It has also served its stead in varying defense requirements.
The Mahindra Bolero is among one of the best selling vehicles in the company lineup. It was only recently that the Bolero pick up range crossed the 15 lakh milestone. The Mahindra Bolero is offered in Bolero Pick Up, Bolero Maxi Truck, Bolero Camper, and Imperio with each of these designed to cater to specific customer needs.
Mahindra has started work on 2020 Bolero. It gets a revised front grille design with slanted vertical slats and a circular headlamp unit. It continues to sport rectangular wing mirrors and a flat roof design and retains its boxy stance with upright windshield and tall pillars.
The interiors also get new features with updated safety features which could include driver airbags, high speed alert, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminders and rear parking sensors. These are in addition to the standard safety equipment offered on its current counterpart that consists of front disc brakes, ABS and EBD.
The engine lineup will also get updated to comply with new BS VI emission standards. Not only the Bolero, but Mahindra will be debuting new products or updating its existing lineup prior to the implementation of these stricter emission norms. These updates will also see an upward revision in price of the Bolero which could go up by around Rs.80,000.
