Earlier today, Mahindra & Mahindra launched the much hyped sub 4 metre Verito Vibe in the fast developing compact car segment of Indian car market. Mahindra says that the car provides a good amalgam of interior space, reliability and unique “crossover style” and we feel that the car could appeal to those in the market for a well sorted out compact sedan/premium hatchback.

Powered by the popular Renault sourced 1.5 litre dCi K9K diesel engine, the car has a max power of 65PS and a peak torque of 160Nm. The Vibe’s engine has an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 20.8 kmpl. Talking about fuel economy, the Vibe comes equipped with Driver Information System, which gives customers real time updates on fuel economy, temperature, distance to empty and more.
