Mahindra Bolero Invader

The Invader is actually derived from Mahindra’s popular Bolero platform. It was a three door SUV and was aimed at young buyers who wanted a sportier looking option when compared to regular Bolero. Anand Mahindra got one of these for himself. The SUV came with a partial soft top, side facing bench seats for rear passengers and a 2.5 litre diesel engine. It was used by Police forces in different parts of the country but now, it is a very rare car to spot on the road.

Mahindra TUV300
Anand Mahindra got himself the TUV300 when it was launched in 2015. He not only got an Olive Green TUV300 but, got it customised as well. Anand Mahindra’s TUV300 got the Armour kit which gave the TUV300 a rugged look. The customisation included a bonnet hull, wider wheel arches, roof mounted marker lamps, side steps and so on. Mahindra however discontinued TUV300 from the market. Mahindra however offers Bolero Neo which is actually a much more improvised version of the TUV300.
Mahindra TUV300 Plus
Anand Mahindra not only got the TUV300 but, also got the extended version of TUV300, the TUV300 Plus. He got one of this after Mahindra launched it in the market.
