Mahindra & Mahindra introduced the Bolero Neo earlier this year, and while the company launched multiple variants of the subcompact SUV, prices for the top-spec N10 (O) variant were withheld. That is until now. The company has silently updated its website with the price of the top-spec variant that is priced at Rs. 10.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Compared to the standard Bolero Neo N10 variant, the new top-spec version is Rs. 70,000 more expensive.
The extra money brings you a major feature that is the Multi-Terrain Technology (MTT) or locking rear differential. With the standard Bolero not available in the 4×4 variant anymore, the new Bolero Neo with MTT is a great value purchase for those looking at decent off-road capability on a budget. Barring this feature, the Mahindra Bolero Neo N10 (O) is identical to the N10. The SUV gets LED DRLs with halogen headlamps and static bending lights. There’s also fog lamps, 15-inch alloy wheels, steering mounted controls, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the Mahindra Bluesense connectivity option, cruise control, manual AC with the Eco mode, height-adjustable driver’s seat and armrests for the front and second row.
The Mahindra Bolero Neo continues to be offered with the 1.5-litre mHawk100 diesel engine that develops 100PS and 260Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with only a 5-speed manual gearbox. It also comes with the Auto start-stop feature and an Eco mode to maximise fuel efficiency.
The Mahindra Bolero Neo is priced from Rs. 8.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the N4 variant and is offered in higher N8, N10 and N10 (O) trims. The model competes against the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon and the likes.
