Mahindra & Mahindra has launched the updated Bolero – Bolero Power+ in India at a price tag of Rs. 6.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Navi Mumbai). The new Mahindra Bolero Power+ available in three variants – SLE, SLX & ZLX while the original Bolero comes in eight variants. The new Mahindra Bolero Power+ is a sub-4m version of the original Bolero and it is Rs. 1 lakh affordable when compared to the original Bolero. The Bolero Power+ comes with three-year/one-lakh kilometre warranty.
Speaking on the new launch Pravin Shah, President & Chief Executive (Automotive), Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said:
“The Bolero has been India’s No.1 SUV for 10 years in a row from 2005-06 to 2015-16 and the all New Bolero Power+ is an evolution of this powerful brand. In our endeavour to enhance the product value proposition, we have introduced the New Bolero Power+ with the mhawkD70 engine delivering more power, more mileage & a peppier drive. I am sure that the New Bolero Power+, with its overall better value proposition, will heighten its appeal not only amongst its core customers but also excite more buyers.”
The Mahindra Bolero Power+ measures 3,995mm in length, 1,745mm in width and 1,880mm in height while the standard Bolero EX and the SLE, SLX and ZLX measure 4,221mm and 4,107mm in length, respectively. When compared to original Bolero, Mahindra has decreased the length by 112mm. The other highlight of the Bolero Power+ is that, it is powered by 1.5-litre mHawk D70 engine which delivers 70bhp with peak torque of 195Nm. The engine borrowed from the TUV300 and NuvoSport and it delivers 13 percent more power & 5 percent more mileage when compared with the original Bolero. In Bolero Power+, Mahindra claims that the engine comes with MicroHybrid technology on the ZLX trim which delivers 16.5kmpl. In case if you do not know, recently Mahindra shifted to Intelli-Hybrid, starting with the Scorpio.
The Bolero Power+ comes with better cushioning for the seven seats, a steering wheel with lesser effort, Bluetooth-enabled music system which supports USB and AUX inputs, semi-digital instrument cluster as well as a driver information system (DIS), a voice messaging system and the fuel-saving Micro technology (ZLX), etc.
In Bolero Power+, Mahindra added an engine immobiliser which will shut down the car if any key other than the original is used. The 15-inch steel wheels retained and there is no word on the ground clearance but I expect it remains 180mm, same as the original Bolero.
