We have been closely following the developments associated with the upcoming Mahindra Verito Vibe hatchback. We reported in detail when first ever pics of an undisguised Verito Vibe test mule surfaced on the web world and rendered us speechless with disbelief. These pics showed what the Verito Vibe would like and it is going to take us sometime to get over those unusually wide C pillars for a hatchback. The rear-end design won’t win any design contests either and overall, the car looks like a hastily truncated version of the Verito sedan.
It’s hard to say if the boffins at Mahindra have taken inspiration from the Ford Focus but it is really a child’s play to predict that there is going to be a divided opinion on the rear end design.
The Verito Vibe will be seen battling it out against the high selling Maruti Suzuki Swift, the recently launched Chevrolet Sail hatchback and the Hyundai i20. The Verito Vibe hatchback could be just a few days away from its launch and we expect that the car will be promoted as entirely new car instead of a variant of the Verito.
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. “
