As purpose enhancements, the vehicle also gets front and side underrun protections. The vehicle comes with 7R16 LT tyres.
2023 Bolero Maxx 2L Cabin
The increased proportions of the vehicle, have facilitated the inclusion of a bigger, more comfortable cabin. The Maxx Pik Up 2L comes with a certified D+2 seating. Footwells offer ample space. The driver seat gets height adjustment as well. This way, people of more body sizes can be comfortable as drivers here.
The dashboard has a distant ‘car-like’ feel to it, and gets a lockable glove box, air vents, blower control ( no air conditioning is offered standard, but getting one installed aftermarket could cost you over Rs 65000), 12V socket and a smart storage pocket for mobile phones. A touchscreen infotainment system can also be had as an official accessory. For added convenience, there is a dedicated switch for disconnecting the battery inside the cabin, so that you don’t have to do it manually every time you leave the vehicle inoperative for some time in a row.
For easier and more intuitive fleet management and vehicle monitoring, the 2-ton Maxx pik up comes with Mahindra’s iMaxx connected tech. This application seems to have had some key improvements in its newest version.
