Mahindra is preparing to launch the Bolero Neo. They have already started releasing teasers on social media. The new Bolero Neo is basically a rebadged TUV300 that has undergone cosmetic changes. The new SUV is expected to unveil today. Now, the SUV has been spied ahead of launch.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by AKSHAT SHARMA. In the video, the host gives us a walkaround of the Bolero Neo and also shows us the interior for a brief moment. The Bolero Neo in the video is finished in black colour and is the N10 variant.
The changes are cosmetic. So, there is a new set of headlamps that now come with an LED Daytime Running Lamp. The grille is also new and comes with 6 slats and looks similar to the one that we will see on the upcoming Mahindra XUV 700.
There are some design elements that have been taken from the Bolero. So, the overall profile is very boxy. It comes with boxy wheel arches and there is also a black strip that runs across the length of the SUV. The bonnet is also a clamshell-type and looks like it is from a SUV.
The interior also gets upgrades in form of a new instrument cluster that is inspired by the Mahindra Thar. There is also a multi-information display located between the speedometer and the tachometer. In the video, we can see that there is an infotainment system that should come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It gets a dual-tone black and beige theme for the cabin.
There is no wheel cover for the spare wheel which seems a bit odd for the top-end N10 variant. It seems like the wheel cover would be installed at the dealership level. Now, we also know that the Bolero Neo will come with a side facing third-row seat. So, it will be a 7-seater SUV.
Bolero Neo will get a 1.5-litre diesel engine that produces 100 PS of max power. The torque output is not yet revealed officially. However, we assume that it would be somewhere around 240 Nm. It will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and there will be no automatic on offer. The power will be sent to the rear wheels only.
Mahindra XUV 700
The homegrown manufacturer is also working on its new flagship which will be the XUV 700. Mahindra has started releasing teaser videos that showcase the features of the XUV 700. It will have the most powerful diesel and petrol engine in its segment. There are rumours that the XUV 700 will be unveiled on 15th August. However, nothing has been confirmed by the manufacturer yet.
Other upcoming SUVs
Mahindra is also working on a 5-seater version of the Thar that is expected to launch in the upcoming years. There will also be a new generation of the XUV500 which will replace the current XUV 500 and it will be a 5-seater mid-size SUV. Then there is the XUV 900 Coupe which has also been greenlit by the manufacturer. It will be a SUV Coupe that will sit above the XUV 700. So, it will be the new flagship of Mahindra.
