Mahindra has launched the 2020 Bolero in India with prices starting from Rs 7.76 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). We had already got a glimpse of the SUV ahead of the launch. What’s new is a BS6 diesel engine option, along with some features updates and cosmetic tweaks. Here’s a detailed price chart of all the three variants on offer:

 Price Rs 7.76 lakh Rs 8.43 lakh Rs 8.78 lakh

*all prices ex-showroom Mumbai

Previously, the Bolero Power Plus was available in LX, SLE, SLX and ZLX. These variants were priced from Rs 7.43 lakh to 8.78 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). Going by that, the new base variant (B4) is now priced at a premium of Rs 33,000, while the top-spec B6(O) is priced similar to the previous ZLX.

The heart of the matter is the 1.5-litre mHawk75 three-cylinder diesel engine, which is now BS6 compliant. This engine puts out 76PS and 210Nm -- a slight bump from the BS4 figures of 71PS and 195Nm. Meanwhile, the gearbox option remains the same with a 5-speed manual.

Along with BS6 upgrades, Mahindra has also utilised this opportunity to update the Bolero’s design. Cosmetic tweaks include a new grille, bonnet and headlamps. The front bumper now features an aggressive design and a new fog lamp housing. The rear end sees similar changes like revised clear-lens tail lamps. The SUV also gets new decals to complete the look.

The cabin features minor tweaks while retaining the familiar digital cluster as well as the driver information system at the centre. Features on offer are a micro-hybrid system (engine start-stop system), audio system with USB support, fog lamps, rear wash wipe, and a flip key (new). Standard safety kit includes driver airbag, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminder, high-speed alert, and rear parking sensors. 

The Bolero is still one of the bestselling Mahindra SUVs in the country with no direct rivals.
