As per the new teaser, the upcoming SUV gets a refreshed front fascia with a chrome-finished six-slat chrome grille flanked by redesigned headlamps.

Other key cosmetic updates include new silver-finished dual five-spoke alloy wheels as well as new roof rails.
The car is also expected to feature a revised cabin space with a dual-tone dashboard, a new instrument panel, beige seat upholstery with diamond quilting, armrest and headrest for second-row seats and more similar updates.
In terms of mechanicals, expect the new Bolero Neo to draw power from a BS 6-compliant 1.5-litre diesel engine that is also found on the existing XUV300 SUV. The engine delivers 114 bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. The transmission option include a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Albiet, details are yet to be confirmed officially. The previous BS 4-spec model featured a 100 bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine and came paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Some of the key rivals to the model will include Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet, Renault Kiger, Tata Nexon, Nissan Magnite, Hyundai Venue, and the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
