Mahindra Bolero to get ABS, airbags, and other safety features

The Mahindra Bolero is one of the best-selling SUVs in the country and with stringent safety norms and emission standards soon coming into effect, the Bolero is due an update. Mahindra will equip the Bolero with safety features, starting next month, as per a report by Autocar India.

In terms of safety features, the updated Bolero will get ABS, driver’s side airbag, seatbelt reminder, reverse parking sensor, and a speed warning system. However, the Bolero won’t be limited to these features alone, as from October 2019, vehicles will have to meet stringent crash test norms.

Expect a facelifted version of the Bolero to soon hit the markets as to comply with the offset front and side crash tests, the vehicle needs an update. By the year 2020, the Bolero will have to meet pedestrian safety standards as well, so expect Mahindra to modify the front end of the vehicle with a higher bonnet and softer bumpers.

Since most of these standards have various deadlines, expect Mahindra to combine all of these in one package and launch an updated Bolero. The new vehicle will also have to comply with the new BS-VI regulations coming into effect soon.

To meet this emission standard, Mahindra will not swap the existing 2.5-litre engine with another one, but instead, will upgrade the engine to meet BS-VI norms. This will also help keep the Bolero priced competitively in the Indian market. The Bolero has had an incredible 19-year run in the Indian market and with these upgrades, the SUV will be ready to carry on for a few more years to come.
