Mahindra has officially revealed that it will be launching its Verito Vibe on 5th of June. Several spy pictures of the Verito Vibe has already been traveling on the internet for quite a long time. It was initially believed that the Verito Vibe will be actually a hatchback but now it is clear that is a compact saloon. The boot has not been hinged with the roof rather it has been hinged at the bottom of the rear windscreen. Mahindra has opted for a two box appearance rather than a chopped saloon like Swift Dzire and Indigo eCS.
The rear windshield has been overlapped with the large tail lights that has been made to sit on the C-pillar. Although the Sharpe rake of the C pillar is in odd with the Vibe’s straight stance and is quite consistent with the rest of the car. Before the C Pillar, the Vibe is quite similar to the Verito saloon and will be sharing the same doors and body parts.
The new Verito Vibe will be powered with the same Renault sourced K9K 1.5 Litre diesel engine that powers Verito saloon. The engine is able to churn out maximum power of about 68 bhp. The weight difference between Vibe and Verito is quite normal and hence it is not expected to affect the performance. So, you can hope to get the same performance with the Vibe also. There is currently no petrol engine planned for Vine as Mahindra currently don’t possess any petrol engine that is competent with the sub four meter excise benefits.
The Mahindra Vibe is expected to be priced around Rs. 5.30 lakhs for the base model.
