The Mahindra Bolero was first launched back in 2000. The rugged utility vehicle has taken many forms since then and is one of the most popular UVs in India. In fact, the Bolero has one of the longest production runs of any vehicle that is still sold in the market. Now the Bolero’s target markets are mostly rural and rub-urban areas and that where most of its sales come from. However, a lot of enthusiasts also bought the 4×4 variants of the Bolero which Mahindra sold nearly a decade back. The one featured below is also a 4×4 variant which is modified for off-road usage. The best part is that it can be had for less than the price of a new Maruti Suzuki Wagon R top model.
This Bolero is a 2001 made model that is up for sale in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The asking price of this butch machine is Rs. 5.60 lakhs and it is the LX 4WD variant. According to its owner, the vehicle has been kept very nicely during the course of its lifetime and he wants someone who could take similar care of it.
