Mahindra & Mahindra, the home-grown auto giant, launched the facelifted Bolero in 2012 with vital exterior and interior updates and mechanical modification.

It features a honeycomb shaped mesh and grille, new large headlamps, modified bumper with integrated fog lamps, new rear wiper and tail lamps. However, the side profile remains unchanged. The SUV is now available in new exterior color options. Interior, too, is more comfortable and feature-rich than the old model. The SUV comes loaded with plenty of entertainment and comfort-enhancing features such as internally adjustable RVMs, MID, AC unit, an audio system with MP3/ CD support, multi adjustable front seats etc. The updated model continues to be powered with a 2.5-litre diesel engine, but now it’s boosted with the M2DiCR technology. It develops a maximum power of 63bhp at 3200rpm with 194.2Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is on offer.

Price

The various fuel trims in Mahindra Bolero are priced differently. The Diesel trims are priced between Rs. 6,10,142/- to Rs. 7,86,298/-.

Exterior

The updated model looks more rugged, sportier and outgoing than the old one. At the front, it gets a new honeycomb shaped mesh and grille, re-designed bumper with integrated fog lamps and new large headlamps. No update has been made to its side profile. The rear end, too, looks identical to the old model, except for the new rear wiper and tail lamps. The facelift is now available new exterior paint options - Silver, Fiery black, Java brown, Toreador red, Rocky beige and Diamond white.

Interior

Interior design is neat and simple, but has started showing its age now. However, it gets wooden finish around the AC vents and console and three-spoke steering with silver accents. Plastic quality is improved. It offers ample legroom and headroom for tall passengers, but doesn’t feel comfortable.  Just like other Mahindra car models, the SUV has plenty of features to offer such as multi information digital display, internally adjustable mirrors, an audio system with MP3/ CD support, AC unit with four AC vents etc.

Engine and Transmission

The facelifted model is powered by the same 2.5-litre diesel engine that powered the old model; however, it is now boosted with the M2DiCR technology. The Micro Hybrid system automatically switches the engine to the fuel saving mode, and reduces its fuel consumption and operating cost. It develops a maximum power of 63bhp at 3200rpm, while yielding a peak torque of 194.2Nm. Power is transmitted via a 5-speed manual transmission.

Performance and Handling

Handling and drivability are impressive. However, Ride is very bumpy on rough roads. Engine isn’t much refined, but punchy at low revs. Body roll is acceptable, but NVH levels need an improvement.  

Braking System

Braking performance is impressive. The front disc brakes and rear drum brakes are robust enough to stop the vehicle at safe distance. However, the SUV is completely devoid of advance features such as ABS (anti-lock braking system), airbags and traction control.

Mileage

The 2523 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 14 kmpl in city and 16 kmpl on highways

Safety Features

The Bolero is barely equipped with safety features. It offers a central locking system, engine immobilizer, keyless entry, voice messaging alert system and few more. 

Verdict

The Bolero facelift is one of the most practical Mahindra cars in India. It’s a well-rounded package with more rugged looks, well-equipped interior and better drivability.

Competition

The Tata Sumo Grande is the closest rival of the Mahindra Bolero. Both the vehicles, built for the rough Indian terrain, aren’t good at handling. But, with stiffer suspension, the Bolero is slightly better and less prone to body roll. Both the vehicles look outdated with old chassis and styling elements. Mahindra’s SUV is a clear winner with affordable price and low running cost.
