Renault had first entered the Indian market with Logan, a C segment sedan. The French car maker had tied up with Mahindra & Mahindra and the car did a fair no. of sales before the two partners decided to head for a divorce. While Renault started its Indian innings all over again with the introduction of some upmarket products, the Logan went to Mahindra and was quickly re-badged as the Verito. While Logan got a few updates just before it was re-badged as Verito in India, we at Motoroids were the first ones to report that the Indian manufacturer is working on injecting some more botox in to the fast aging and bland car.
Recently, the good folks at ACI spotted a unmasked Verito facelift test mule being tested. Verito refresh will come with a new bumper, new headlamps, a grille that looks like it is inspired from Xylo’s and foglamp housings. The car will also get a new boot lid along with revised rear bumper and tail lights. The no. plate housing will be seen on the new boot lid and not at the bumper, as in the earlier version of the car. Do not get us wrong; we are not expecting any drastic change to happen with the market’s perception of the Logan, nay, the Verito but this minor facelift job has surely injected some freshness into the aging car. The Verito facelift will most probably be launched sometime next month.
