The TUV300 Plus will make a comeback as Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus has been spied without camouflage; the SUV is expected to launch soon
Mahindra & Mahindra is working to bring an extended version of the Bolero Neo SUV to the Indian market. Likely to be offered in both 7 and 9-seater configurations, the SUV will resemble the TUV300 Plus, which was discontinued a long time back. Some media reports also suggest that the upcoming four-wheeler could get a new nameplate as well, however, the chances are quite less.
Upcoming Bolero Neo Plus: What We Know?
The SUV which was spied looks exactly the same as the Bolero Neo except for the longer overhang, which means that it will surely be longer than 4 meters in length. All the extra space will be acquired for providing better space in the 3rd-row seats. The spy images have revealed the car in full flesh and the only hidden element is the brand’s new twin peaks logo.
At the rear, the spare wheel cover also gets the Bolero branding, which means that it will most likely be called the Bolero Neo Plus. Moreover, the tail lamp design and bumper are different from the Bolero Neo. Inside the cabin, we don’t expect many changes as compared to the current Bolero Neo.
In order to create differentiation, Mahindra could offer new upholstery along with a new finish for the dashboard and door trims. In terms of features, the affair will remain the same as the Bolero Neo and it will continue to get a 7-inch infotainment unit, cruise control, adjustable driver’s seat, electrically adjustable ORVMs, rear parking sensors and more.
Standard safety tech on board the new SUV will include dual front airbags and ABS with EBD. Under the hood, the Bolero Neo gets the 1.5-litre diesel engine putting out 100 bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque. To lug the extra weight in the upcoming SUV, Mahindra could offer the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine putting out 130 bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque.
Talking about the pricing, the Bolero Neo Plus range could start from around Rs. 10 lakh (ex-showroom) ballpark.
