2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo launched in India, prices start from Rs 8.48 lakh
Mahindra has launched the 2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo in India with prices starting from Rs 8.48 lakh for the base N4 variant. This goes up to Rs 10 lakh for the N10. The Bolero Neo is the facelifted Mahindra TUV300 that has now been repositioned to be a part of the Bolero line-up.
2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo interior changes, features
The analogue dials and 3.5-inch MID from the Mahindra Thar have now been added to the 2021 Bolero Neo. Also seen here is the 7-inch infotainment screen available on the Thar and the Marazzo, which offers Android Auto/Apple Carplay. The features have been expanded to include cruise control but the reversing camera has now been deleted. Other notable features are a height adjustable driver's seat, front-seat armrests, powered ORVMs, static bending headlamps and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo exterior changes, dimensions
The big change with the TUV300 becoming the Mahindra Bolero Neo is the new front look. There is now a new mesh grille with vertical chrome strakes, a familiar Mahindra arrangement. The headlamps have also been redone with new detailing and LEDs while the front bumper has changed to accommodate a more prominent airdam with new foglamp housings. There are redesigned alloy wheels but no sheet metal changes have been made. Although, grey cladding along the doors have been added. The rear remains largely untouched, save for the Bolero Neo badging and the X-pattern wheel cover.
A notable change is the 20mm drop in body height and a further 20mm drop in the bonnet line, although the ground clearance remains unchanged from earlier. The 2,680mm wheelbase remains unchanged too as does the 1,795mm width, 1,817mm height and 3,995mm length. Spy shots have suggested a three-row Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus derivative may follow.
2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo engine, locking differential
The Mahindra Bolero Neo continues with the 1.5-litre mHawk three-cylinder diesel from the TUV300, although updated to meet BS6 regulations. The power output remains unchanged at 100PS and but torque has increased by 20mm to 240 Nm. A significant addition is that of the automatic locking differential in the rear axle to improve control in low traction situations.
2021 Mahindra Bolero Neo prices, rivals
The mid-spec Mahindra Bolero Neo N8 costs Rs 9.48 lakh while prices of the N10(O) variant with the locking diff isn't known yet. The Mahindra Bolero Neo should compete with lower-spec versions of the usual sub-four-metre SUV crowd like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon.
