Mahindra Bolero Power Plus vs Mahindra Bolero – Exterior Design

Visually, it is very hard to tell the two apart. The only differentiating factor here is the design of the front bumper. Mahindra has shaved off a part of it to reduce the length of the car and given it a new profile. The rest of the SUV continues with the same look. Bits like the headlamps, wheel covers, all are exactly identical. The Bolero is available in six colours – Fiery Black, Mist Silver, Java Brown, Diamond White, Rocky Beige, Toreador Red. On the other hand, the Bolero Power+ comes in only four colours- Mist Silver, Java Brown, Diamond White, Rocky Beige.

Mahindra Bolero Power Plus vs Mahindra Bolero – Interior Design

Both versions of the Bolero boast an identical interior setup. In spite the reduced length, the Power Plus gets the same cabin space. This is because only the bumpers went under the knife. However, Mahindra does claim the seats in the new Power Plus are better bolstered. Both Boleros get a digital instrument cluster. Mahindra Bolero can seat up to 7 people. However, the seats behind the second row are jump seats. These are not very comfortable. The cabin is finished in a light shade with some cheap wood inserts on the centre console.

  1. sir
    good, worth the difference for the same vehicle [loss of length by 100 mm], better engine, mileage with same sapce and will compete with other suv’s and this is proven/rugged vehicle over a period of time.

  2. Mahindra company should have increase the ground clearance frim 180 mm to 200 mm. For ground clearance matter a lot because we live in hilly location and the condition of our road is bad as if thr is no road. We the hilly customers of mahindra or any other company looks mostly into ground clearance and power of engine before buying a car

  3. There is no offer such as accessories / insurance / cash discount/ Gold Coin etc etc.
    Why you are not flexibale and tanable.
    Please leave some thing for your customers also as they also need money for their family.

  4. The noise inside the cabin is less for power plus. The vibration of the engine is less felt. The suspension is much refined. The engine response is good on highway. Overall it is better than the old bolero.

  5. I would like to buy bolero. Pls suggest which one is best for a business person who carry min .600kg in his car .

    Power plus vs old model will be appreciated if you can suggest

  6. Bolero is good SUV but inteior is not good ,and no rear ac.car exterior rear registrationplate not perfect fitting,its hangs on right side thats very bad.
