Bolero Neo Plus to Replace Mahindra TUV300 Plus

The Bolero Neo Plus will be available in five different trim levels, with a 2.2-liter diesel engine and new styling.

In India, Mahindra will add a new body style to its popular Bolero lineup. We have the specifications and variant details for the new Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus, which is expected to hit showrooms soon. The Bolero Neo Plus will be the third model in the Bolero lineup, which already includes the standard Bolero SUV and the Bolero Neo compact SUV (which was previously known as the TUV300).

An Overview of The Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus

TUV300 Plus, a larger, four-meter-plus SUV, was part of the previous TUV300 lineup. Because it was sandwiched between two strong sellers, most of its variants would overlap the Bolero on the lower side and the Scorpio on the top, making it a less popular choice for buyers. The TUV300 Plus, like the standard TUV300, was phased out with the introduction of BS6 standards in April 2020, only to be reintroduced as the Bolero Neo the following year. The TUV300 Plus is expected to be reintroduced as the Bolero Neo Plus by the manufacturer.

What’s New in The Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus?

While the vehicle has yet to be seen in person, we can confirm that Mahindra will give the SUV’s styling a makeover, similar to what happened when the TUV300 plus’s sub-four-meter counterpart became the Bolero Neo. Expect a new grille, bumper, and headlamps, as well as a new alloy wheel design, mildly modified side cladding and rear bumpers, and re-profiled tail lamps. The interior equipment list could be similar to that of the Bolero Neo.

The Bolero Neo Plus will be available in five trim levels and two seating configurations: a seven-seater or a high-density nine-seater. There will also be an ambulance model with seating for up to four people and a patient bed.

In terms of the engine, the Bolero Neo Plus is expected to keep the tried-and-true 2.2-litre diesel engine. This is the same engine that powers the TUV300 Plus and is also used in the current-generation Scorpio’s lower trim levels. It produces 120 horsepower in normal mode and 94 horsepower in Eco mode, and all variants will come with a single five-speed manual transmission. Additionally, the SUV may include an engine-start-stop feature. There will be no 4WD options available.

Positioning of The Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus

As previously stated, the TUV300 Plus was a lesser-known but capable model in the Mahindra stable. While the new Bolero Neo Plus will have a more modern appearance and more features, its positioning will remain largely unchanged. With the current Scorpio being replaced by a mildly updated Scorpio Classic to make way for the new Scorpio-N, it will be interesting to see how the Bolero Neo Plus benefits from this update, as well as a more prominent marketing name. Especially since this is a more practical alternative to Mahindra’s hugely popular Scorpio.
