The major change took place under the hood, instead of the heavy 2.5-litre diesel motor, the mini version will feature the newest 1.5-litre 3-cylinder mHawk diesel engine in order to give a class -leading fuel efficiency. This is the same engine which also powers the two other compact SUVs, TUV 300 and NovaSport. However, in terms of power, it develops a modest 68 bhp which is still more compared to the standard Bolero which develops a maximum power of 63 bhp.

To keep the name ‘Bolero’ alive, Mahindra has all set to lure the buyers with the new compact crossover, Mini Bolero. It has to be seen whether the company will get the title of ‘the most selling SUV’ back.
