Speaking of the Mahindra Bolero, it will receive a new entry-level variant called ‘B2’, and thus it is expected to bring down the starting cost of the rugged SUV. Currently, it is available in B4, B6, and B6 (O) variants.
Mechanically, both SUVs are expected to remain unchanged. For reference, Mahindra offers the Scorpio Classic with a 2.2-litre diesel engine (132PS/300Nm), paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, the Bolero comes with a 1.5-litre diesel engine (75PS/210Nm), paired with a 5-speed manual unit. They will be upgraded to comply with the upcoming Real-Driving Emission (RDE) standards.
