Last year there was quite a bit of chatter about India launching BS6-compliant vehicles and they have done so. The Mahindra Bolero has undergone significant changes with the BS6 transition while receiving a facelift and some safety upgrades.
One of the most regularly asked questions at or Mahindra Showroom in Midrand is: “What is the difference between the Mahindra Bolero and the Mahindra Scorpio Pik-Up?” To help answer this question we’ve made a comparison between two similar versions of the respective vehicles below.
To look at it, you would never guess this is one of the mosts competitive bakkies on the market. And looks matter oh so much. You can almost hear the Mahindra marketing department’s collective gasp of horror when this tender model was delivered into their care. Nevertheless, they tried. A series of TV ads do their damndest to stuff this ogre into a princess’s gown. The truth is, it’s the ogre everyone fell in love with. They’d have done better to name the Mahindra Bolero after the Dreamworks princess, Fiona, instead of some Spanish dance.
