Mahindra Bolero Road Test


Mahindra Bolero has been launched a long time back but a new version was unveiled a while back. Bolero has very macho looks owing to its large rectangular shaped hawk-eyed headlamps, honey comb shaped mesh and grille with chromed tipped Mahindra badge and body colored bumper with integrated fog lamps which add to the sporty and aggressive looks of the MUV. The rear of the Bolero has had a makeover and now sports well styled tail lamps which give a rugged rear look to the car.

Mahindra Bolero has interiors which are beige in color with wooden finish around the center console and a feature packed instrument panel featuring various meters and MID. Bolero has comfortable and multi adjustable front seats which provide decent level of comfort to the passengers and provide support to your back and thighs. Mahindra has given Bolero plenty of features including excellent air conditioning, CD/MP3 music system, internally adjustably RVMs, and the dual tone upholstery adds to the plush feel of the interiors of this popular multi utility vehicle. Bolero brings plenty of storage areas around the car for keeping your small items and plenty of space in the boot to carry your entire luggage.
Mahindra Bolero is available in two engine options. Bolero is available in a 2.5 liter turbo engine variant that produces a maximum 63 BHP at 3200 RPM and maximum torque of 180 NM from 1440 RPM. The second engine variant on the Mahindra Bolero is a 2.5 liter M2DiCR diesel engine which produces a maximum power of 63 BHP at 3200 RPM and 195 NM of torque at 1400 to 2200 RPM. Both the engine variants on the Bolero offer good drivability and loads of low end torque which makes it easy to drive around in low speeds through the city roads even when fully loaded to maximum carrying capacity and maintain good speeds on the highways for the inter city runs as well.
Mahindra Bolero has been rated by ARAI to deliver a maximum fuel efficiency of 15.96 kmpl making it a fuel efficient MUV. Plus it has a micro hybrod system which shuts of engine after 5 seconds to save fuel.
When it comes to it has a slightly firm ride but the overall ride quality is quite plush and cushions all the bad bumps on the road. Mahindra has the tuned the suspension and this has greatly reduced body roll on the car. The NVH levels are minimum and at high speeds the passenger comfort is well maintained.
Bolero has a power steering which makes it easy to drive this MUV and long drives won’t strain the driver. The Bolero starts at 5.6 to 7.20 lakhs ex-showroom, it a rugged old-school SUV that will do everything that you will need but not want. There are more modern offerings out there like the Scorpio but the Bolero has its own appeal and still today continues to sell in huge numbers and is a icon of Mahindra.

Bolero zlx Best option for off road driving
Posted on Sep,09,24 9:43 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,

Cons CongestedUncomfortable,

I am using bolero zlx for last one year.I believe bolero is the best option for off road driving.The zlx version contains an extra digital meter contains mileage information and the current gear position of the vehicle.I am getting an average mileage of 14 to15 km after first service i think which is good. If you are trying for a 7 seat vehicle with off road driving facility bolero is the best option.The power steering provided is very comfortable for driving.You can drive through bad roads with confidence with your bolero. The signal system takes a small delay in detecting the acceleration change.This is a major drawback new bolero

Pros Good Performance,Comfort

Cons CongestedUncomfortable,

All over I like the car. It is easy to ride as all its corners can be easily seen from driver seat. It is very powerful even loaded. It has good fuel economy and very reliable engine. My car has run about 3.25 lakh kilometres and still its engine is fine. Only thing missing in it is comfort, its little less comfortable. Overall this car is value for money car.

Have used bolero lx,zlx and presently using scorpio and the zlx.want to know when mahindra motors will attend to the
ball joint issue in the bolero models.the joint suddenly comes off and keeps you stranded,which is really bad.
