2022 Mahindra Bolero SUV to get dual front airbags
Mahindra is expected to launch the facelifted version of its Bolero SUV in India this month. As for the highlights, the car will receive some cosmetic changes and a spacious cabin with new features, including dual front airbags. It will continue to draw power from a BS6-compliant 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder, mHawk75 diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 75hp.
Why does this story matter?
The Bolero is one of Mahindra's all-time bestselling models and has been up for grabs here for over two decades. The introduction of the facelifted model with added safety features should make it even more appealing to buyers. It is likely to be priced competitively and will take on rivals such as the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
The car will have a large grille and squared windows
The 2022 Mahindra Bolero will have a muscular bonnet, a large grille with vertical slats, a wide air dam, and adjustable halogen headlights. On the sides, it will be flanked by squared windows, ORVMs, side-steppers, flared wheel arches, and designer 16-inch wheels. The car should be available in white, brown, silver, and a red shade with a contrasting dual-tone treatment.
It will be fueled by a 75hp, 1.5-liter engine
The upcoming Mahindra Bolero will run on a BS6-compliant 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder, mHawk75 diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 75hp and a peak torque of 210Nm. The mill will be linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox for handling transmission duties.
The SUV will get a Bluetooth-enabled music system
The new Mahindra Bolero will have a spacious cabin, featuring a tweaked dashboard, a power steering wheel, a Bluetooth-enabled music system with USB connectivity, key-less entry, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and manual air-conditioning. For ensuring the safety of the passengers, dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, ABS, EBD, speed alert, crash sensors, and an engine immobilizer will be available.
