There is no doubt that Bolero is one of Mahindra's best-selling vehicles, and the manufacturer has kept it fresh with incremental upgrades throughout the last two decades it has been on the market. The Bolero had its most recent redesign in March when it was also modified to meet BS6 emission standards. Mahindra is now working on a new upgrade, which will be released later this month.
The Bolero's design is unlikely to undergo considerable modifications, however, it might be upgraded with dual-tone paint and additional single-tone paint possibilities. According to reports, the Bolero might get a new red paint color with contrasting dual-tone treatment. The Bolero is now available in only three monochromatic color schemes: white, silver, and brown, and the addition of dual-tone color schemes will breathe new life into the vehicle.
Speaking about the interior part of the Bolero's design, it is said to receive the most attention. You can also find a single driver-side airbag now offered on the Bolero. Also, the government had ordered that twin airbags be installed as standard on all new automobiles starting in April, a rule that had already taken effect, and that current vehicles on the market be equipped with two airbags starting in January 2022.
As a result, the Bolero will need to be equipped with a passenger-side airbag, which may need dashboard changes. The Bolero currently has a large grab handle on the passenger side of the dashboard, which leaves no room for an airbag. As a result, the Bolero will be updated to include a passenger airbag. The Bolero received a completely new steering wheel from the now-discontinued TUV300 the last time it was equipped with a driver-side airbag.
We don't foresee any modifications to the equipment list other than the installation of a passenger-side airbag. That means features like a Bluetooth-enabled audio system with AUX and USB inputs, manual air conditioning, keyless entry, power steering, and a semi-digital instrument panel will remain.
A driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and speed alert are all standard safety equipment across the range. It's worth mentioning that the Bolero is the only vehicle with metal bumpers in India that meets pedestrian safety standards.
The Bolero will be powered by the same 1.5-liter, three-cylinder diesel mHawk75 engine, which produces 75 horsepower and 210 Nm and is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels alone. A four-wheel-drive version of the Bolero is not available.
Mahindra is set to unveil the new Bolero this month, with costs anticipated to rise due to the dual-tone color schemes and the addition of a passenger airbag. The Bolero has now priced between Rs 8.71 million and Rs 9.70 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). In India, there is no direct competition for the Bolero.
