The new Bolero is priced at Rs 6.19 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi) and is now available for booking across all Mahindra outlets in India. Apart from featuring a new engine which is powerful and economical than the outgoing Bolero, Mahindra has also added a new variant to the Bolero range, Bolero ZLX.
This is the Bolero’s second facelift after it was re-launched in 2000. The 2011 facelift has a new front with redesigned headlamps, grille, bumper and more. The interior gets a reworked dashboard with panels on the centre console getting a classy wood finish. It also gets a completely digital instrument cluster which includes driver information screen and a voice warning system.
Under the hood is Mahindra’s 75bhp Low-Cost-Common-Rail (LCCR) engine from the recently introduced Scorpio EX. This engine delivers an ARAI-certified fuel economy figure of 15.96kpl, claims Mahindra. None of the variants of new Bolero will be featuring 4×4 as of now. Mahindra is currently working on the Bolero 4×4 and will be launched later in the Indian car market.
