Indian multinational automaker, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, has launched the new Verito sedan with updated styling and features. The car is to be made available in both petrol and diesel variants.
The automaker has just released the much-awaited 2012 Mahindra Verito with an initial price tag of Rs.5.27 lakh. It was at an event in New Delhi, where the company launched the car this afternoon. Months prior to today’s launch of the sedan, the automobile blog and news segment on the internet was brimmed with rumors and spy shots. As of now, the company has put up an initial New Delhi ex-showroom pricing of Rs.5.27 lakh on the petrol avatar, while for the diesel variant the price has been kept as Rs.6.26 lakh.
Under the bonnet of the petrol sedan, there lies a 1.4L, 4-cylinder MPFI engine that delivers a maximum power of 78PS and a maximum torque of 110Nm. On the other hand, a 1.5L CRDi 4-cylinder engine that can actually churn out a power of 68PS and a torque of 160Nm powers the diesel variant.
As far as the facelift is concerned, the sedan has been loaded with many exterior and interior cosmetic changes. The front outlook changes that have been induced include new front fascia, new headlamps, new bumper, new grille that features chrome striping and vertical slats, fog lamps and new roof rails. While the rear of the car has been loaded with freshly designed tail lamp cluster, alloy wheels and the overall design has been adjusted to make the new Verito look less boxy.
Taking interior changes into concern, Mahindra the automaker has introduced abundant use of chrome and a new music system (which occupies most of the space on the center console).
