Mahindra Bolero Neo is powered by a BS6 compliant 100 hp 1.5 liter mHawk diesel engine – It is priced from Rs 8.48 lakh, ex-sh
2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo, the much awaited facelifted version of the TUV300, has been finally launched. It may be recalled that the TUV300 made its Indian debut in 2015. TUV300 itself was an updated version of Quanto, which was launched in 2012 and discontinued in 2016. Mahindra launched TUV300 Plus in 2019. Both the TUVs failed to receive expected attention in terms of sales.
The TUVs were discontinued in April 2020 with the onset of new BS6 norms coming into effect. Mahindra has now revived the TUV with the Bolero brand name. Apart from a new name, Bolero NEO also gets more refinement both in terms of its exterior and interior designs as well as a new BS6 compliant engine.
Redesigned Front Fascia
Based on the same platform as current gen Scorpio, 2021 Bolero Neo completely redesigned front fascia and bumper. It will sport a six slat grille covered in chrome, new exterior paint job, revised headlamps and horizontally positioned LED DRLs. It will be seen with variant moniker (N4, N8 or N10) on its tail gate and Bolero Neo badging.
It will also get a wider air-dam, new rear spoiler and blackened door handles. Also on offer are new set of alloy wheels fitted under flared wheel arches. It will be positioned on the same ladder on frame chassis as was seen on the TUV300, however, will miss out on roof rails, though this could only be offered as an option on the new Bolero Neo.
