Mahindra has introduced the Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus, priced at Rs 11.39 lakh (ex-showroom). Initially launched in mid-2023 as an ambulance, this versatile vehicle now enters the mainstream market as a 9-seater SUV, featuring a seating arrangement akin to the 9-seater Mahindra Scorpio Classic. Essentially a revamped version of the discontinued Mahindra TUV300 Plus, the Bolero Neo Plus brings a fresh look and improved features to the table.

SLEEK DESIGN AND DIMENSIONS

The Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus builds upon the design of the 7-seater Bolero Neo, offering a slightly extended body at 4,400 mm in length while maintaining the same width (1,795 mm) and wheelbase (2,680 mm). Its aesthetic remains largely consistent with the Bolero Neo, highlighted by:

  • Front Grille: Chrome slats integrated into a honeycomb grille, adorned with Mahindra’s new ‘twin peaks’ logo.
  • Air Dam: A continued honeycomb pattern flanked by fog lamps.
  • Rear Design: A more curvaceous rear compared to the Bolero Neo.

ENHANCED INTERIOR AND FEATURES

Inside the Bolero Neo Plus, several upgrades set it apart from its predecessor:

  • Steering Wheel: Borrowed from the Mahindra Thar, providing a robust and familiar feel.
  • Instrument Cluster: A new twin-pod display for improved readability.
  • Infotainment and Climate Control: An updated system along with new fabric upholstery enhances comfort and usability.

The vehicle’s seating layout mirrors the 9-seater Mahindra Scorpio, comprising:

  • Front Seats: Two individual seats.
  • Middle Bench: A three-seater bench.
  • Rear Jump Seats: Accommodating four passengers.

Notable features include:

  • Touchscreen Unit: A 9-inch display with Bluetooth, Aux, and USB connectivity.
  • Music System: A 6-speaker setup.
  • Convenience Features: All four power windows, follow-me headlamps, manual AC, and a height-adjustable driver seat.

POWERFUL ENGINE AND SMOOTH TRANSMISSION

Under the hood, the Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus is powered by a robust 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine, delivering:

  • Power Output: 120 PS
  • Torque: 280 Nm

This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, driving the rear wheels, ensuring a dynamic and reliable performance for various driving conditions.

THE FINAL WORD

The Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus stands out as a versatile and well-equipped 9-seater SUV, merging practicality with modern features. Whether for family use or commercial purposes, it offers a robust solution with its enhanced design, improved interiors, and powerful engine.
