Accordingly Mahindra’s bestselling SUV is set to get a major upgrade to meet the safety and emission standards that will come into effect from April 1, 2020. The Bolero, though ageing, is still going strong 19 years after it was launched and will be ‘future proofed’ to meet the latest regulations.
Meanwhile as part of the upgrade, Mahindra will offer ABS across the Bolero line-up from this month. The SUV range will also get features like driver's airbag, seat belt reminder warning, speed warning and rear parking sensors before July 1, 2019. However, a more serious upgrade will be carried out before October 1, 2019, when all cars have to meet the stringent offset front and side crash standards.
Furthermore in addition to this, all cars will also have to meet a new set of pedestrian protection crash regulations by April 1, 2020. This will require the front end of the Bolero to be modified to accommodate a higher bonnet, a softer bumper and a redesigned grille to reduce pedestrian injuries in case of an accident. Even though the deadlines for the various safety regulations are staggered, you can expect all these regulatory requirements and modifications to be rolled out into the Bolero face lift.
