Mahindra & Mahindra launched the Bolero Pik Up which is the face lifted version of the previous version. With many design upgrades and a few mechanical changes, the utility vehicle giant is aiming for a complete dominance in the LCV segment. The new vehicle is available in two payload capacities, 1250 kg and 1500 kg. The new variants retain the Bolero’s signature grille, however, there are quite a number of styling changes and new colour options. The new and attractive multi-reflector headlamps along with fender extensions give a more macho look. The paint quality is also better and gets a glossier look while improving corrosion resistance. It is available in 2WD and 4WD. The company aims to provide better value for money for their customers with the changes introduced in this vehicle.
It is currently priced between Rs 6.1 L and Rs 6.7 L (Ex-Showroom Price) but the price will vary according to the place.
The nine feet long cargo bay will allow owners to transport large items. Additionally, there is alo the option of Cowl Body Chasis (CBC) that allows the owner to put up the cargo body according to their requirement and meet their specific needs. The BS 3 variant gets three years unlimited kilometres warranty while the BS 4 gets one year warranty.
There are two engine options offered to customers. The BS 3 gets a turbo charged engine that delivers 63 bhp and 195 Nm torque while the BS 4 is driven by a 70 bhp and 195 Nm torque from a turbo charged motor. Owners can also get a speed limiter which will restrict the vehicle to a top speed of 80 kmph. The driver seats are bucket type with slider, recliner and head rest for comfort. The cabin gets other features like mobile holder and charger and other storage spaces, dual tone interiors and power steering. The AC is an optional add on. It also gets washable mats for the floor that will help in keeping the cabin clean. The new instrument panel and colour themes give it a premium feel. The BS 4 variant also gets an engine immobiliser. The Bolero Pik-Up’s many best in class features raise the bar and will leave competitors behind.
