Mahindra Verito 2012 Avatar Revealed

Mahindra Verito has been caught in its new avatar doing the test rounds. The new facelift avatar of the Mahindra Verito is however not a complete transformation but just an update to before its compact sub-four-metre saloon launch.

The changes on the new Verito include a new front grille accompanied by a chrome strip, newly restyled front bumper and fog lamp housings. The B-pillar is blacked-out and the outside rearview mirrors get new mountings. At the tail end of the car, the changes have taken place at the tail lamps and bumpers. The number plate has now moved on to the redesigned bootlid.

With regard to the changes on the interiors, we do not expect much of activity at the mechanicals and most of them will remain the same. It is also expected to come with the same diesel engine. The best part of the facelift will be a huge cabin and better technology in terms of the dynamics. In fact the company had recently launched the rebadged Verito in April last year with some styling tweaks. The only reason for the facelift is looked upon as a buying time until it launches the sub-four-metre saloon. The launch time of the Verito is expected to happen in the coming months.

The new facelift avatar does not do much to change the image of the car. The car still struggles hard to shake off its taxi image and there is a lot left to be desired in terms of the quality. At a time when big brands like Nissan and Volkswagen are giving stiff competition in the sedan market, it is time the Indian companies also improved their standard.

In fact it is really strange that the number one SUV maker in India still struggles to even give a damn in the other segments. The new Mahindra Verito will compete with the likes of Nissan Sunny, Maruti Swift Dzire and the Tata Manza.
