The Mahindra Bolero is all set to get a price hike from July 1. This is due to the implementation of safety features to make the Bolero compliant with the AIS 145 safety norms that all manufacturers need to meet by October 1.
India’s favourite workhorse continues to soldier on despite being an 18-year-old model! The utilitarian SUV is known for its go anywhere nature and it’s capability to withstand abuse. In its latest avatar, the Bolero has been chopped to fit under four metres. It also gets a new 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder engine from the TUV300 that makes 70PS of power and 195Nm of torque. Goodies include a digital speedo, a Kenwood music system and manual air-conditioning. Like the Thar, the Bolero is likely to be replaced (or discontinued altogether) by 2020 since it does not meet the upcoming crash test norms.
