Mahindra is one of the largest utility vehicle manufacturing brand in India. Bolero from Mahindra is the oldest model that is still in production. It is still a very popular vehicle among customers from rural areas. It is a popular vehicle among those who love to modify vehicles as well. We have seen several examples of modified Mahindra Boleros in the past and here we have another example that shows how butch this MUV can actually look even with some subtle exterior modifications.
The video has been uploaded by BANKS CUSTOM on their youtube channel. Unlike other modifications that we have seen on Mahindra Bolero in the past, this one gets subtle but, effective modifications on the outside. Starting with the front, it retains the stock Bolero grille and headlamps. The bumper however has been completely removed and replaced with an off-road metal bumper. The bumper even has integrated projector LED fog lamps with DRL rings in them. There is metal skid plate as well and couple of tow hooks are also installed on the bumper.
The bumper itself has done a lot to enhance the overall looks of the MUV. It now looks like an off-road ready vehicle. Coming to the side MUV, we notice the Jeep Wrangler styled ORVMs with LED turn indicators integrated in the, Other than this, it get customised fender flares both at the front and rear. The stock wheels have been replaced for chunky looking mud terrain tyres and blacked out rims. Another noticeable change here is the new aftermarket foot board which along with the new set of wheels give Bolero a very rugged look.
Moving to the rear, there is a full size spare wheel mounted on the tail gate. Just like the headlamp, the tail lamps are also stock units. The bumper also remains the same but, it now has a parking camera installed in it. Ceramic coating has been done to the Bolero which gives it an extra glossy look. Moving inside, the owner has customised the interiors too. It now offers all four power windows, touchscreen infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also shows the feed from reverse parking camera. Other than this, the dashboard is wrapped in soft touch material which gives Bolero’s cabin an upmarket feel.
The door panels and the seats get premium dark brown leather upholstery and the plastic inserts around AC vents, passenger grab handle, door knobs have been hydro dipped to look like wooden inserts. Overall, the cabin looks a lot more premium than the stock version. Mahindra Bolero is still popular among buyers and that is the reason why Mahindra keeps on updating the MUV to meet the emission and safety norms.
It is now available with a BS6 complaint engine. BS6 version was launched in the market earlier this year. It is available in B2, B4, B6 and B6 (O) trims. It is powered by a 1.5 litre diesel engine that generates 75 Bhp and 210 Nm of peak torque. It is available with a manual gearbox option only.
