The 2020 Mahindra Bolero SUV has been launched. The facelifted Bolero comes with new exterior styling, an updated cabin with new features, and now, the SUV also gets a new BS6 compliant mHawk75 diesel engine. The Mahindra Bolero is the best-selling model in the company's line-up, selling an average of 6000 units a month, and in 2019 alone the carmaker sold 69,656 units of the SUV. However, it was in a desperate need for a facelift and Mahindra has finally introduced it with the BS6 upgrade. Here are things you need to know about the 2020 Mahindra Bolero:
1. The 2020 Bolero also comes with visual updates like - a new grille with vertical slats, a new headlamp cluster with neat partition, integrating the beam light, hazard light and parking light. The headlamps also come with static bending function. The SUV also gets new X-shaped front bumper with new foglamps, and ridges on the lower section that mimic the look of a skid plate.
2. The basic silhouette of the SUV remains unchanged, the 2020 Bolero does come with new side decals that give it a cleaner look. Mahindra offers the BS6 Bolero in three colours - Mist Silver, Lakeside Brown, and Diamond White, unlike the pre-facelift model that came in six colour options. The rear section too largely remains unchanged, however, the SUV does come with new clear lens taillamps.
3. The new BS6 Bolero is based on the sub-4 metre Bolero Power+, however, it no longer used that suffix. The SUV comes with the same dimensions, measuring 3995 mm in length, 1745 mm in width, and 1880 mm in height, along with a wheelbase of 2680 mm.
4. The cabin too has been updated and now comes with new interior trim, featuring a 7-seater layout as before. Of course, the last row gets side-facing jump seats which are only big enough for children. However, they do not come with seatbelts, so if you are buying this as a personal car, it is better to fold the seats and use the extra boot space.
5. On the features front, the 2020 Bolero comes with a new audio system Bluetooth, USB and AUX-IN connectivity, along with a digital display on the instrument cluster that offers vehicle data. There is a secondary display above the audio system that shows, time door ajar warning, and other alerts.
