The Mahindra Bolero was caught testing on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway recently with test plates and B-113 codename on the body. The Mahindra Bolero is the most rugged and the highest selling UV from the Mahindra stable. The Bolero was first introduced in 2000 and was recently refreshed with a new engine, facelifted exteriors and updated interiors. Mahindra may be planning yet another refresh for the Bolero and this may be the reason they are testing the vehicle.
On the exterior of the spied Mahindra Bolero not many changes are seen with the same boxy and rugged looks. There is a possibility that Mahindra may have tweaked the engine and tests for the same may be underway. The engine may be tested for higher fuel efficiency. It is possible that Mahindra has made a few changes to the engine and gearbox for better refinement as well. Or there is a possibility Mahindra may be testing a completely new engine for the Bolero. This could also possibly be part of a routine test for the company.
We can see a ‘BSIII’ sticker on the rear glass of the test Bolero. There is a possibility that Mahindra may be testing a different version of their 2.5-litre diesel engine for tier II and III cities which is BS III compliant and may be priced slightly lower than the current car. The company could also be testing new features and technology on the Bolero. Exact details of the vehicle seen here are still not known but it is expected that Mahindra may announce the changes present in this version in the near future.
