The TUV300 plus, which was discontinued way back, is likely to be resurrected as the Bolero Neo Plus

The Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus has been spotted on test once again. It’s essentially the 7-seater version of the Bolero Neo and was sold earlier as the TUV300 Plus. We have spotted the updated SUV testing on the Mumbai-Pune expressway and here are five things you can expect from it:

Exterior Styling 

Design changes are minor as compared to the TUV300 Plus. In fact, the updates which Mahindra made to this SUV are similar to the Bolero Neo. So, the larger SUV gets a redesigned front grille with chrome slats flanked by mildly refreshed halogen headlamps with smoked inserts and DRLs. Redesigned front bumper tops up the design changes at front. 

In contrast, the side profile and rear-end are largely the same as the now-discontinued SUV. So yes, most of the design changes are focussed on the front-end only.

Interior

The interior of the Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus is yet to be snapped. But based on what Mahindra did with the smaller Bolero Neo, we expect changes to be limited to just the upholstery, instrument cluster and colour scheme to keep things fresh. There’s one update we suspect could be made to the infotainment system – the Scorpio Classic’s 9-inch Android unit.

In terms of features, we don’t expect any major changes. Some expected additions include cruise control and smartphone connectivity. Apart from that, bits like steering-mounted audio controls, a multi-info display, power windows, dual airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors should be retained. 

What Powertrain?

The Mahindra TUV300 Plus came with the carmaker’s 2.2-litre diesel engine back then. And now, we expect the newer all-aluminium unit from the Thar and Scorpio Classic that puts out 132PS and 300Nm. It should be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels.  

Launch And Pricing

Since the Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus is still under testing phase, it could be a while before we could see the SUV hit showrooms. We expect it to command a premium over the standard Bolero Neo that starts from Rs 9.63 lakh (ex-showroom). It doesn’t have any direct rival in the Indian market and will be targeted primarily as a fleet vehicle.
