The compact SUV segment is a popular choice in India. Taking a note of this new trend, the country’s popular utility vehicle maker Mahindra is planning on launching its popular brand Bolero in sub-four-metre form. Recently, the Bolero Mini test-mule was spotted, thereby indicating its possible launch soon. If launched, this will be the fourth compact SUV to be rolled out after TUV300, KUV100 and NuvoSport from Mahindra.

Though the official engine specification could not be known for now, we believe that the Bolero Mini might be powered by the 1.5-litre mHawk three cylinder diesel engine which currently serves the TUV300 and the NuvoSport. The smaller engine will also help it position itself better in the compact SUV segment. The sub four-metre Bolero will continue to have the same wheelbase measuring 2,680 mm.

On the design aspect, the sub four-metre Bolero is expected to continue with its iconic design except for tweaked bumpers. The interior is expected to remain the same with no major upgrades expected for now. However, the space between the seats will be modified for better occupant seating. The rear will however get the jump seats which resemble the NuvoSport and the TUV300. More details about the vehicle will be known in the coming days.

When asked for details on the same, Mahindra refused to comment on future products.
