Earlier this week, Mahindra & Mahindra had launched the sub-4 meter long Bolero Power+ with the mHAWKD70 engine with prices starting from INR 6.59 lakh (ex-showroom Navi Mumbai for SLE BS4 variant). However, all we saw of the new Bolero variant was through a bunch of computer generated images that didn’t really do justice to the vehicle. Now, the Bolero Power+ gets detailed in new, live images that give us a better idea how the new variant pans out.
This Bolero Power+ measures 3995 mm long, 1745 mm wide and 1880 mm high. While Mahindra has shaved off 112 mm from the regular Bolero’s length by trimming the front and rear bumpers, the Power+ retains the other dimensions, including the 2680 mm long wheelbase from the regular Bolero. Apart from the restyled bumpers and new body decals, the Bolero+ looks identical to the regular Bolero.
The Bolero Power+ is powered by the new mHAWKD70 engine is claimed to deliver 13% more power and 5% more mileage over the existing Bolero. The 1.5-litre, turbo-diesel, three-cylinder mHawk D70 engine is borrowed from the TUV300 and NuvoSport. However, in the Bolero Power+, this engine is rated at 70 PS at 3,600 rpm and 195 Nm of peak torque between 1,400-2,200 rpm; down from the 83.6 PS/230Nm in the TUV300. Along with Mahindra’s Micro Hybrid system, the Bolero Power+ is claimed to deliver a mileage of 16.5 km/L (ARAI-certified).
The interior’s continue unchanged, apart from seats which receive better cushioning. The Bolero Power+ retains the regular variant’s 7-seat layout with a pair of jump seats in the back. The Bolero Power+ is equipped with the features like engine immobiliser, music system, power windows, voice messaging system, and a digital instrument cluster. The Bolero Power+ is available in three variants – SLE, SLX & ZLX across Mahindra dealerships pan India.
