Just like previous Mahindra car launches in India, we expect that the Verito Vibe will also be launched in a phase-wise manner. Once launched, Verito Vibe will compete with cars like Hyundai i20, Maruti Swift, Volkswagen Polo, and Skoda Fabia. Power will be delivered by the same Renault sourced 1.5L K9K diesel engine that features on the Verito sedan.
Mahindra says,”Verito Vibe will continue to offer the well acclaimed strengths of the Verito, including class-leading space and comfort, robust build and the ever reliable 1.5 Litre dCi diesel engine. Designed and developed entirely in-house by Mahindra, the Verito Vibe is smartly packaged in a sub-4 metre length on the proven Verito platform.”
Speaking on the new ‘Verito Vibe’, Pravin Shah, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said “At Mahindra we continuously strive to delight our customers with unique product offerings. The Verito Vibe marks our entry into the high volume sub-4 metre segment. We are confident that this product will be successful in delighting our customers with its young and sporty looks, without compromising the benefits that our existing Verito has to offer.’’
One can say that Mahindra is a superstitious manufacturer, from the fact that they name their vehicles ending with the alphabet ‘O’. For eg., Bolero, e2o, Scorpio, Verito, Xylo, Quanto, and XUV5OO. Even the names of their two wheelers, follow the same, Rodeo, Duro, Pantero and Centuro. But with the Vibe (image wheelOsphere), do you think they are taking a chance?
