Mahindra’s one-off Bolero Attitude is a bit over the top
I’m the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
Mahindra’s styling department is not best in the world. The cars (be it the old, now extinct, Armada or Bolero or even Xylo) are more utilitarian rather than head turners. No doubt, they are good cars but they are just not good looking cars. And when their customization team steps in, that’s when things get a bit over the top!
Shown at the Speed Autocar Performance Show 2009, the Bolero Attitude is one such result of car customization taken to the limits and then some more. It is like the person who was in charge just couldn’t stop customizing it!

We think that this is an attempt to revive the Bolero Stinger as it was rendered obsolete because of BS IV norms. But whereas the Stinger was customized in a subtle way (a bit), the Attitude is just way too ‘Look-at-me’.
