1. Mahindra Bolero Terminator

Mahindra Bolero remained the best-selling UV in the Indian market for a long time till the Maruti Vitara Brezza took over. The sturdy and rugged Bolero is the first-choice of many buyers in the Tier-II and Tier-III cities because of its ease of maintenance and extremely robust body. Bolero is also one of the most modification-friendly SUV in the market. There are quite a few modified Mahindra Bolero SUVs in the market, but this is the most extreme of all!

Mahindra Bolero has been completely transformed into a Jeep Wrangler through heavy modifications. This is based on a 2010 Mahindra Bolero CRDe that now looks completely different from the stock. There is a new 7-slat grille at the front mimicking the Jeep Wrangler’s iconic design. It also gets enormous fenders, larger ORVMs, custom-made door panes and handles. It now rides on Maxxis Bighorn LT 315/75 R16 tyres that look monstrous.

Even the interior of this Bolero has been completely revamped. It gets a redesigned dashboard, powered seats, dual sunroofs and plusher seats. The modification job took months to complete!

2. Mahindra XUV 500 Moonraker

The Mahindra XUV 500 Moonraker is another customisation done officially by Mahindra officially. There are quite a few XUV 500s in the Indian market but most of them are overdone. The Moonraker is a perfect balance between the outrageous and practical. The Mahindra XUV500 gets an army green colour and an Indian flag placed on the aftermarket bumpers of the XUV500.


The Mahindra Moonraker gets a massive body cladding and it seamlessly to the wheel arches. This is based on the latest version of the Mahindra XUV 500 and the front grille is intact to keep the DNA alive. However, it gets a few inserts to make it look much stronger. There are dune lights mounted on the top of the roof of the XUV 500 and a luggage box mounted behind it. The Moonraker surely looks extreme and will turn every head on the road that likes good looking cars.

3. Mahindra Scorpio Hummer
