The Mahindra Bolero has been the top-selling vehicle for Mahindra in India and a popular choice of people in semi-urban and rural areas. Launched back in 2000, the Bolero has been going on strong ever since then and still maintains a similar body profile as seen on the first-gen model. Next year though, Mahindra will bring in a new, updated BSVI version of the popular UV that will continue to carry the Bolero nameplate. The video below by SRK Designs suggests how the new, 2020 Bolero might look like when launched next year. You can take a look at the video below to see how a render is created.
Before we start, let us tell you that the spy shots of the upcoming 2020 Mahindra Bolero that have surfaced till now don’t show any substantial changes in the UV’s exteriors. Therefore, this render is more of an artist’s imagination than something we’ll see on the roads next year. Coming to the changes seen on this Bolero render, the front face looks much bolder and muscular compared to the current model of the vehicle. The Bolero is characterised by clean, straight lines and a boxy shape which has been retained in this render too, albeit with more flair than the regular models.
The headlight has been a new look with LED treatment and dual-chamber division. It also gets LED DRLs as well as square-shaped fog lamps to enhance the look. The front grille design is also updated and looks much smarter. The spy shots of the 2020 Bolero had their grilles covered by camouflage sheets and hence the new car could sport a similar grille design. Here, the grille carries a brushed aluminium effect metal bar on top with a Mahindra logo and a notch. below it are three chrome slats on either side laid symmetrically. The ORVMs have been updated as well and now feature turn indicators in them.
A scuff plate has been added to enhance the macho look of the vehicle while the bumper design has also been updated. While this render only shows the front face of the vehicle, similar changes can be expected on the rear and sides too. Talking about the upcoming 2020 Bolero, Mahindra will equip it with several safety upgrades to make it BNSVAP compliant. This includes Airbag and other safety like an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Speed alert system, Driver & Co-Driver Seat belt reminders, Manual override for the central locking system, Vehicle reverse parking sensors to comply with the new 2019 safety norms. It will be powered by the mHawkD70 engine that is a 1.5 litre, 3-cylinder diesel engine which churns out 70 bhp and 195Nm torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. However, the engine will be upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms.
