Bolero has decent pick up in speed and cosnistant in performance,Though one can not expect zoom in acceleration like that of Xylo, its fair enough speed one can relay upon.The build quality,utility, price range proven performance for long term usage is what makes it king of vehicles in rural areas.

Mahindra Bolero is a powerful looking SUV that is available in two engine options. One of them is the 'DI' and the second is the second-generation m2DiCR. However, both the engines are of 2.5-litre with a total displacement capacity of 2523cc. This helps the vehicle to reach a top speed in the range of approximately 125 to 130 Kmph. At the same time, it enables it to accelerate towards 100 Kmph speed mark from a standstill about 20 to 25 seconds.
Mahindra offers this MUV in three versions mainly – SLE, SLX, and the top most ZLX. Either ‘DI’ or the second-generation m2DiCR diesel engine equips all these variants. While the Di engine produces, it produces a maximum power of 63bhp at 3200rpm and 180Nm between 1440 to 1500rpm, the second-generation m2DiCR diesel engine on the other hand, produces a maximum power of 65bhp at 3200rpm and a maximum torque of 195Nm in the range of 1400 to 2200rpm. All the variants are equipped with a 5 speed manual transmission that allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100 Kmph in about 20 seconds.
As the above quoted review, the bolero has a decent acceleration in comparison with its competitors. It can go 0-100 in around 15.9 second, while the power output is lower than which is expected by a SUV. The top speed depends upon the variant you have purchased. Bolero DI has a top speed of 125km/h while the Bolero SLX has a top speed of around 116km/h only. The Bolero is for its bold looks but one cannot expect zoom in acceleration in this SUV.
