The upcoming Government norms are making all the manufacturers update their existing vehicles to meet these norms. While all the vehicles have almost been updated to the norms, there are quite a few left. One of them happens to be the most selling Utility vehicle of our country, with an image of among the most durable and rugged vehicle. Yes, we are talking about the old workhorse, Mahindra Bolero.
Mahindra Bolero has been around for almost 19 years and had enjoyed it’s fair share of updates while still keeping the true essence and design of Bolero alive. So this time Mahindra has updated the Bolero to get the safety upgrades and also a few feature updates. The new Bolero spied at the dealership gets the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).
The spy pictures from a youtube Ujjwal Saxena shows the car at what appears to be a dealership yard. The design of the Bolero remains the same with no major change that can be seen in the exterior. A picture of the interior reveals the ABS warning light alongside a Start/Stop button. The Bolero should also get driver side airbag as standard, speed warning, rear parking sensors and seatbelt reminder. As the Bolero has been spotted in the dealership, the launch could follow soon in upcoming months.
October 2019 will also bring up more serious norms related to front and side crash safety standards. Furthermore, 2020 will see more norms for pedestrian safety requiring design changes to the bumper. We are yet to confirm, that is this vehicle ready for all the upcoming norms or just adhering to the ones that are already been implemented. The engine though should remain the same, but it will have to be BS-VI compliant to meet the upcoming norms. The 2.5-litre diesel is an old mill but does its duty well on the Bolero.
Mahindra Bolero has been a consistent seller throughout the past 19 years. Last year sales stand around at 80,000 units, and that covers Major part of Mahindra sales. The demand for Bolero also does not seem to be slow down anytime soon, so Mahindra will keep updating it regularly to meet all the upcoming norms. With these updates, Bolero will continue to keep its stronghold in the rural market as one of the best Utility Vehicles.
