Driving impressions[edit]

The Mahindra Bolero is a basic utility vehicle that is well-suited to Indian conditions. Even though it is based on a decades-old platform, its high ground clearance makes it easier to drive on rural Indian roads. Equipped with a 2500 cc diesel engine, it has become the vehicle of choice for rural populace.
