The 2020 Mahindra Bolero gets a revised grille upfront along with a refreshed bonnet and headlamps which are still halogen units but get a neat partition, integrating the beam light, hazard light and parking light. The front bumper has been completely redesigned as well with a new air dam and fog lamps housing. At the rear, changes are limited to refreshed tail lamps and door handle for boot gate.
The previous Mahindra Bolero had an identical boxy silhouette and overall design along with dimensions. Though, along with a different bumper and headlamps, the grille on the outgoing model had sleeker slats.
The cabin of the Mahindra Bolero remains unchanged as well, finished in the same beige colour and retaining the design. It continues to get the 5+2 seating configuration with two side facing jump seats in the boot. However, we would have liked if Mahindra would have made space for a two-din audio system in the central console and added touchscreen infotainment system at least as an option, given that they are quite the fancy these days.
The 2020 Bolero is equipped with features like dual airbags, high speed alert, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminder and rear parking as standard while comfort creatures include four-door power windows, manual HVAC and rear centre armrest.
The same 1.5-litre, three-cylinder diesel mHawk75 engine powering the outgoing model has now been updated to meet the BS6 norms. It pumps out 75 bhp at 3,600 rpm while the peak torque output is 210 Nm at 1,600 - 2,200 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and has a fuel tank capacity of 60 litres.
