There are multiple unique features about the new Neo that makes it stand out in the crowd.

  • The new TUV, oh! Bolero Neo comes powered by a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine that generates a max power of 100bhp and 260Nm of peak torque.
  • The quality part about the Neo is that it is rear-wheel driven, because of which the engine is longitudinally mounted.
  • Well, this makes this Mahindra the only subcompact SUV in the segment to be rear-wheel driven. Moving on, this SUV also comes with a 5-speed manual transmission.
  • Also, the top-end T10 trim gets a mechanical locking differential.

The new SUV heavily takes cues from its predecessor TUV300. Or rather it is a TUV300 but with facelifted design and some changes on the inside.

  • Speaking of design, the basic body structure of the vehicle remains the same with minor tweaks on the headlights and front grille.
  • Stipping on the inside, it is the same as the TUV with an updated instrument cluster and new fabric seat covers.
