The Mahindra Bolero SUV, which is known for its tough attitude on poor roads, has once again demonstrated its skills in a video uploaded on social media. Even Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra was amazed by the SUV, which could wade through water as high as the hood. In Rajkot, Gujarat, a Mahindra Bolero SUV is seen wading through flooded streets. The white Bolero looked to be gliding across the water, with no other vehicles visible.
Anand Mahindra reacted to the video, saying that Bolero's capability has left even him quite impressed. He wrote on Twitter, “Seriously? During the recent rains? Even I am pretty amazed."

Bolero has been one of Mahindra's most consistent performers throughout the years, and it has long been the company's best-selling model. Even as trends show that people are searching for more features in their SUVs, the Bolero remains a popular choice among many, particularly in India's smaller cities and villages. The Bolero Neo SUV, which is just a facelift version of the TUV300, was recently released by Mahindra and claims to offer the same dependable driving capabilities as the Bolero. Bolero Neo, on the other hand, will not be the new-generation Bolero, as the automaker aims to remodel the SUV and introduce a new generation model in the coming years.
The 1.5-litre BS 6-compliant mHawk75 diesel engine in the Mahindra Bolero is paired to a five-speed manual transmission. It has a maximum power output of 75 horsepower and a peak torque of 210 Nm. Despite the lack of a designated off-road mode, the SUV is nevertheless capable of tackling rough roads with reasonable ease, due to its rear-wheel-drive configuration.
In India, the Mahindra Bolero SUV is available in two trim levels: BS 6 1.5-litre diesel manual and BS 6 Optional with a comparable powerplant. A BS 6 Bolero SUV costs from 9.39 lakh (ex-showroom) to 9.63 lakh (ex-factory) (ex-showroom).
