Mahindra Bolero Neo’s N10 Variant Now Offered With An Aftermarket Infotainment Display
The N10 variant’s new touchscreen unit from Kenwood measures 6.8 inches unlike the 7-inch system available on other variants
The Kenwood system comes with Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, radio, USB, steering-mounted controls, and AUX.
The new unit doesn’t show vehicle information or give alerts.
All existing bookings for the second-to-top N10 variant have been shifted to the new touchscreen-equipped model.
No mechanical changes have been made and the SUV still gets the same 1.5-litre diesel engine as before.
The Bolero Neo is priced between Rs 8.77 lakh and Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
As a result of the prevailing semiconductor and supply shortage, Mahindra has announced that the Bolero Neo’s second-to-top N10 variant will now be shipped with a new aftermarket infotainment system from Kenwood. The top-spec N10 (O) variant will continue to be equipped with the existing unit.
Mahindra Bolero Neo's 7-inch touchscreen unit
The new touchscreen system measures 6.8 inches, while the top-spec N10 (O) variant of the SUV gets a 7-inch unit. Mahindra has stated that the new system comes with Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, steering-mounted controls, radio, AUX, and USB, but does not support Mahindr’s Bluetooth-based BlueSense app support. So, it won’t show vehicle information (fuel info, car info, etc) or give alerts (door open, bonnet open, etc) either. You won’t even be able to control certain settings like switching on/off the DRLs with this new system.
