The new Mahindra Bolero Neo is set to launch in India on July 15, 2021. Essentially a facelifted TUV300, Mahindra has teased its upcoming SUV, with units of the model already reported to be arriving at dealerships.
- Bolero Neo gets revised nose with new bumper, grille and revised headlamps
- Expected to carry forward 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel
- To be sold alongside the standard Bolero
Mahindra Bolero Neo: what’s new?
Spy shots and teaser images reveal some of the design details of the new Bolero Neo. Compared to the erstwhile TUV300, the Bolero Neo gets a revised front end with a new front bumper, a revised grille, along with reshaped headlamps. Images of the undisguised car circling the web reveal that little else seems to be different on the exterior.
There are few details in the cabin though that the teasers suggest will be a part of the upgrades, like a revised instrument cluster, for example. One could also expect revised upholstery, along with some equipment revisions over the TUV300.
Like the TUV300, the Bolero Neo is also expected to be under 4 metres in length, with a longer, TUV300 Plus-based model also expected to be offered.
Mahindra Bolero Neo: engine and powertrain details
While engine details are not yet confirmed, the Bolero Neo is expected to carry forward the same engine as the TUV300 – a 1.5-litre diesel putting out 100hp. The unit will be paired with a 5-speed manual as standard, though it remains to be seen if the AMT unit from the TUV300 will also be carried over.
Upcoming Mahindra SUVs in India: 2021 and beyond
Arguably, Mahindra’s biggest launch for the year is expected to be the new XUV700, which is due to arrive in the coming months. The carmaker has also lined-up a host of new products for an India launch over the next 5 years, including an all-new Scorpio, the longer, 5-door Thar, and the XUV Aero-based XUV900 SUV-coupe, among a few others. Also on the cards is the all-electric version of the Mahindra XUV300.
