I purchase my first off-roading vehicle, the Mahindra Bolero ZLX

By Ramesh Shah on 15 December 2011

I purchase my first off-roading vehicle, the Mahindra Bolero ZLX a couple of months ago. After only taking the massive multi utility vehicle for a serious off-roading experience, I was very impressed with its engine and efficiency. The 2.5-litre, 63 bhp CRDi engine of this grand vehicle is worth mentioning.

Moreover, paired with a decent output, the mileage offered is also quite remarkable, especially when the vehicle delivers an optimum fuel economy of 16 kmpl on highways. I was rather disappointed with the city mileage of only 12 kmpl.

In contrast to its aggressive exterior, the Mahindra Bolero comes with a roomy 7 seater interior with decent cabin equipment. Bolero ZLX, being the top-class variant, has the optimum number of comfort features.

Features supporting the rear passengers include air-conditioning with heating system, high-definition audio system with CD/Mp3 player, second row centre armrest, front map pocket and other utility storage spaces.

On the downside, the passenger safety quotient in Bolero ZLX needs a lot of improvement. The off-roader is only equipped with simple features like power assisted steering control, engine immobiliser, passenger side rear view mirror, rear seatbelts, seatbelt warning signals and front impact beams.

My experience with the new Mahindra Bolero ZLX has been worth the price and would definitely look forward to advanced Bolero variants in the future.
