Estimated read time 2 min read

The forthcoming Mahindra Bolero, currently in development, will be built on an entirely new platform. In contrast to the existing Bolero lineup, which includes various models such as pickups, the next-generation Bolero is expected to expand its range by offering more seating options, diverse body styles, and a range of powertrains.The Bolero’s U171 platform will feature multiple wheelbase options and accommodate various seating configurations. The next-generation Bolero aims to cater to a wide range of customer segments, particularly focusing on buyers in tier-2 cities. The new lineup will commence with a five-seat version, likely with a sub-4-meter length. This SUV is set to replace both the current Bolero and the less popular Bolero Neo.Furthermore, the Bolero will introduce a larger three-row version. It remains uncertain whether the 7-seat model will maintain an under-4-meter footprint like the current model. Similar to the Scorpio N, Mahindra is expected to equip the Bolero with a forward-facing third row for passenger safety and to achieve a higher Bharat NCAP crash test rating.Considering the Bolero’s primary target audience in rural areas, Mahindra plans to introduce an extended XL version, directly competing with the Force Citiline. This XL variant will feature four front-facing rows of seats, accommodating up to nine passengers. Additionally, some of the wheelbase options introduced in the next-gen Bolero will also be utilized in Mahindra’s pickup range, contributing to greater economies of scale and competitive pricing.While the launch of the new Bolero is still on the horizon, Mahindra is currently preparing for the release of a significantly updated XUV300 SUV in the coming months. The outgoing XUV300 is being offered with attractive discounts to clear inventory. Additionally, Mahindra has plans for updates to the XUV400 EV and the debut of the 5-door Thar in 2024.
