The Mahindra Bolero is the company's workhorse - relentlessly selling in high numbers from the time it was first launched in 2000. A favourite in lower tier cities, towns and villages - the back-to-basics, spacious and easy-to-maintain Bolero needed an update. The Bolero Power+ is exactly that update.

The Mahindra Bolero Power+ is a sub-4m SUV! It is 3995mm long, 1745mm wide and 1880mm tall - the standard Bolero is 4107mm long, 1745mm wide and 1880mm tall. The reduction in length of 112mm/11.2cm has been achieved by flattening the front and rear bumpers - which essentially reduces their functionality. What this reduction in length does help with is reduce the price - the Bolero Power+ qualifies for lower excise duties. The only visual differentiator on the outside (apart from the flat bumpers) is the slightly modified grille, the horizontal chrome slat at the bottom of the grille fitted on the standard Bolero has been replaced by a honeycomb mesh.

Paint options include Diamond White, Rocky Beige, java Brown and Silver.

The other big change is under the hood - the standard Bolero BS4 is powered by a 2.5-litre (2523cc), 4-cylinder, turbocharged m2DiCR diesel motor developing 63PS @ 3200rpm and 195Nm @ 1400-2200rpm. The Mahindra Bolero Power+ is powered by the mHawk D70, 3-cylinder, turbocharged diesel motor - the same one that powers the TUV300 - which develops 71PS @ 3600rpm and 195Nm @ 1400-2200rpm.

The new engine is peppier and also more fuel-efficient than the m2DiCR motor, the lighter and more advanced motor coupled with a start/stop system ('micro-hybrid' in Mahindra speak) gives the Bolero Power+ an ARAI-certified mileage of 16.5kmpl. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission and is only available with rear-wheel drive, 4WD variants are available on the standard Bolero.
