The new Mahindra Bolero Neo was launched recently, a facelift of the Mahindra Bolero's ruggedness and reliability. One of India's highest-selling utility vehicles, the Bolero, has been around for quite some time now when the brand decided to launch the variant of the classic TUV300. The new variant is better in looks, comfort and equipped with a multitude of new features. Some of the latest features include:
The new Neo is shorter by 63mm and wider by 50mm. The exterior has got a smoother finish with a new grille and chrome inserts. A big difference with the classic Bolero is that the C-pillar is black, while the D-pillar is body-coloured – just the opposite of the Bolero. The Bolero Neo is available in white shade, Highway Red, Majestic Silver, Rocky Beige, and Napoli Black. The beige interior has a dual-tone dashboard with a seven-inch infotainment system operated via a Touchscreen and has a Blue Sense connectivity app. The interiors have an enhanced finish and a smarter look nicer vis-a-vis the old Bolero.
While the classic Bolero is priced (ex-showroom, New Delhi) between Rs. 8.41 and Rs. 9.41 lakh, the Bolero Neo has been launched in the price range of Rs. 8.48 lakh and Rs. 10.0 lakh. The new Bolero Neo will be a tough competition to SUVs like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nixon, Hyundai Venue, and Kia Sonet.
A superior choice for all kinds of Indian terrain, starting from the plains to the hilly areas.
The SUV has a robust suspension system – independent multi-link coil springs and stabilizer bars in the front. The back gives an enhanced driving experience in the city, outside, and on rugged terrains.
NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) levels are much better than the conventional model.
The drive is mostly pleasant and pretty comfortable for the passenger and the driver.
The Neo N10 (O) trim is equipped with the Limited-Slip Differential and Multi-Terrain system for off-road grip and capability.
Enhanced safety features on all the variants ensure safer drives across multiple landscapes.
Cruise control and mechanical locking differential are improved additions to the classic Bolero.
You can drop the second row to create more space for cargo, while the last seats are foldable for impressive boot space.
The passenger seats are comparatively more comfortable – seats are taller with armrests for the front seats.
Drivers have enhanced road visibility.
The Neo has excellent fuel economy.
The car has a spacious cabin and sufficient leg space.
Robust make with body-on-frame construction.
The Mahindra Bolero Neo is truly a facelift from its simple Bolero cousin. It has been given a sturdy body; engineered to bear the brunt of ravishing terrains, including rocky mountain slopes and hilly terrains. It is a heavyweight vehicle being a body-on-frame vehicle – the kerb weight of the SUV is 1,555 kg for the N4 variant. The cruise control feature on the steering wheel is interesting.
The SUV does not, unfortunately, deliver a smooth ride as expected. Especially within the city, it is a challenge as the ride does get noisy, bouncy, and bumpy. Plus, the model does not have some elements that its competitors offer, such as - climate control, ac vents in the rear, speakers of good quality, AppleCarPlay, Android Auto. The lack of an automatic transmission model is also a negative point of the Neo. All of these can be a big demotivator for buyers.
All in all, the engine has been designed for low to medium drivability. The engine gives the best performance between 2,000 and 3,700 RPM. Beyond that, it does not deliver much beyond the noise. The heavyweight body, however, delivers impressive performance, fuel efficiency, and dynamism. It is a decent purchase for the price range, especially for drives on rocky landscapes, though throwing caution to the air is not advisable.
