The Mahindra Bolero is an entry level SUV that was first introduced in 2001. It is more appropriate to call the Bolero a basic Utility Vehicle rather than a SUV. The overall design is based on the Mahindra Armada. Since its inception the vehicle has gone through many changes including its overall design, interior design and its engine mill. Currently, the new generation Bolero has been significantly improved to be more comfortable and more economical, with a choice of different trims and variants. It is a very inexpensive SUV and will most probably compete with the Suzuki Ertiga, which is an MPV.
The new Mahindra Bolero looks rather good. At first glance it looks like a proper Jeep as it has got a square body cut with muscular body kit. There is also a brand new design for the front bumper, which makes the car look a lot more modern than what it used to. The signature front grille is also decent with its honeycomb Mesh, and it stands out. There are also some decals on the side of the car to add some style, but they are not really needed. The wheels are nice and big and give it a good look. The car is just over 4 metres in length and it also has a ground clearance of just 180mm, and these are the reasons why the Bolero is not a proper SUV.
