Mahindra has put on sale the Bolero Neo N10 Limited Edition with a price tag of INR 11.49 lakh. This is INR 28,000 more than the variant it is based on.
What Is The Bolero Neo N10 Limited Edition?
For this added premium, the SUV gets roof ski racks that enhance its bolder road presence. On the inside, we see the most significant change. This is the use of faux-leather seats and lumbar support for the driver and co-driver seats. The Limited Edition also gets a reverse parking camera and a storage tray under the driver’s seat. This is not available on the SUV’s other trims. The other key features include headlamps with DRLs, alloy wheels, a tailgate-mounted spare wheel with an X-shaped wheel cover, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with BlueSense-connected car features, cruise control, steering-mounted controls, and likes.
Since this is a Limited Edition model, we do not see any changes to the mechanical aspect. Mahindra is using the same 1.5-litre mHawk100 diesel engine (100PS/260Nm) mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This is the exact powertrain option we see on the regular N10 trim. The SUV also benefits from the idle start/stop technology. Sadly, the provision of Mechanical Locking Differential (MLD) is only available with the range-topping N10 (O) variant.
As of now, the Mahindra Bolero Neo doesn’t have any natural rival in the Indian market. This particular SUV is seen as a rugged alternative to some 5-seater monocoque SUVs like Tata Nexon, Maruti Brezza, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue and its cousin offering, the Mahindra XUV300.
The Comeback Of TUV300 In Bolero Guise
After the unsuccessful brand of TUV, Mahindra changed the name to Bolero Neo with some updates. With the immense fan following of the Bolero brand, the rebranded TUV300 is a massive success, especially in the rural segment. The SUV is selling in good numbers and thus allowing Mahindra to eat away some share of the pie of the compact SUV segment.
