Official word is out that the Mahindra Veirto Vibe hatchback will be launched in India on June 5. We have been pretty regulars with posting about the Verito Vibe hatchback and are eagerly waiting to see if the new car would be able to give sleepless nights to the boffins at MSIL and HMIL.
As can be seen here in the pics, the upcoming car would have an exterior styling that could take time to grow on people. Much of this can be attributed to unusually wide C pillars that don’t let rear-end design win any design contests. Our belief is that the car looks like a hastily truncated version of the Verito sedan. The car does have a hint of Ford Focus near the C pillars but it is tough to guess if the car buying lot would appreciate the car’s overall design.
The Verito Vibe will be a Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai i20 adversary and the first batch of Verito Vibe cars has already reached Mahindra dealerships across the country. The Verito Vibe hatchback could be priced in the vicinity of INR 5.5-6 lakhs. Powering the Verito Vibe will be the tried and tested 1.5 litre Renault K9K diesel engine that powers many cars in our market.
Speaking on the ‘Verito Vibe’, Pravin Shah, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, has said “Customer centric innovation has always been at the heart of any product development at the Mahindra Group. The Verito Vibe marks our entry in the high volume sub 4 metre segment. While developing this product we have paid particular attention to making this car look different and we are sure that it will appeal to customers with its young and sporty looks and that too without compromising the benefits which our existing Verito has to offer. “
