Mahindra Bolero Neo was officially launched in the Indian car market at a starting price of ₹8.48 lakh (ex showroom, pan India). There are four variants on offer. Bolero Neo from Mahindra is making a mile-long list of promises as it gets set for an official launch in the Indian car market.
Mahindra is backing Bolero Neo SUV, which promises to blend the acclaimed toughness of Bolero with the premium-ness of the TUV300, to find favour among not just the core Bolero buyers but a younger audience spanning across geographies. And so, while the Bolero may be a time-tested work horse in the Tier II, III cities, and in the hinterlands, the Bolero Neo is aiming to strike a stronger chord here as well as in the urban expanse of the country.
Bolero Neo comes with the mHawk100 engine which has been taken from the Bolero but will offer more torque inside the latest Mahindra.
