The next generation Mahindra Bolero or Mahindra U301 as it’s refereed to within the company, has been spotted testing again. Team-BHP forum member Gannu_1 posted pictures, mentioning that the vehicle was spotted near Melmaravathur, not very far from Mahindra’s R&D centre.

The U301 is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine, and come only in 2WD.

While most previous test mules have been seen with steel wheels, the vehicle in picture was spotted with alloys and a side step. Likely to be based on a shorted platform of the Scorpio, the sub-4 meter SUV could also get an automated manual transmission, as the latest interior spyshots revealed.

    Mahindra, NO 7 seater please.
    Focus more on comfort & brand perception now than on launching another rural people carrier.
