Mahindra has always been popular in Indian market as an SUV manufacturer. They have manufactured many popular SUVs in the past. Recent products in their portfolio include Mahindra XUV700, all-new Thar and the upcoming new generation Scorpio. Even before all this came to the market, Mahindra had a range of SUVs like Commander, Armada, Legend and so on. One such SUV in their line-up was the Mahindra Invader. It was actually a version of Bolero that is still being sold in the market. It is a three door SUV and was used by Police forces from different states for a very long time. Mahindra Bolero Invader was never a commercial success as it was not a practical car. However, it holds a special spot in the heart of an SUV lover and there are some well maintained and modified examples of this SUV across the country. Here we have one such beautifully modified Bolero Invader from Kerala.
The vide has been uploaded by SanzGraphs on their YouTube channel. This short video is actually a teaser of the modified Mahindra Bolero Invader. It does not share any detail regarding the modifications done to it. We’ll be mentioning the modifications that are visible in the video.
Mahindra Bolero Invader is a three door SUV and that was one of the reason why it did not become a commercial success. It came with side facing bench seats for rear occupants and it was offered with a partial soft top. It was aimed at young customers and not the family audience.
Coming back to the Invader seen in the video. The car does not get any major modification that completely changes the look of the car. The SUV will not be mistaken for any other SUV. It looks like the owner of this SUV got the whole car repainted. The whole car is now finished in Red which gives it a very different look. The front bumper has been redone and is finished in gloss black. The original turn indicators are placed on the bumper and the signature chrome grille at the front has been completely blacked out.
It retains the squarish halogen headlamps. Coming to the side profile, the original steel rims on the Mahindra Bolero Invader has been replaced with aftermarket alloy wheels. The alloys are wrapped in chunky looking tyres. The front and rear fenders are flared and the original foot rest has been retained as well. At the rear, the car gets aftermarket LED tail lamps and the spare wheel is mounted on the tailgate. The Invader gets the soft top which gives it a unique character.
The video does not share any information about the interiors. It is not known whether any changes have been made to the engine on this Invader as well. Originally, Mahindra offered Invader with a 2.5 litre diesel engine. The diesel engine used to generate 63 Bhp and 113 Nm of peak torque in stock form. The same engine was also offered in Bolero. Overall, the modified Mahindra Invader looks different and rugged and has also not lost its original character.
