Mahindra will launch the new face-lifted Verito sedan tomorrow in Delhi. The car has apparently already been sent to dealers and will be put on display at showrooms after the launch.
The Verito Sedan was recently clicked at what seems to be a dealer’s stockyard. Take a look at how the Verito has evolved, we believe that there has been a major improvement in design and the car no longer looks as boxy as it used to in its older versions.
At the front the Verito gets a new bumper and grille with more rounded edges. It looks much more refined and palatable from the design point of view. Read more: New Mahindra Verito to launch on July 26
The windshield wipers no longer swing from right to left and conform to the general left to right swing action we’re all used to for right-hand drive cars. The headlamps have a dash of chrome and has what look like LED parking lamps. From the sides the car is still quite unmistakably a Verito and sports only minor changes like a new wheel cap design.
The rear too had received its fair share of Botox and comes with differently designed tail lamps, a new boot lid with the number plate mounted on it (instead of on the bumper) and a new bumper with built-in reflectors. Overall the rear too looks much more contemporary and suave.
The changes do not stop at the outside and Mahindra has made tweaks on the inside as well. The dashboard has a new feel with a beige theme and redesigned center console.
The biggest change is the shift in the position of the power-window switches, from the dashboard and floor to the door pads. The Verito looks much more attractive in general and may help Mahindra boost sales which were suffering due to its boxy and mundane looks.
The heart of the Verito though remains the same 1.5-litre DCi engine from Nissan which is found on everything from the Micra to the Sunny and Duster. In the Verito, this motor makes 65 bhp of power and 160 Nm of torque. The Petrol Verito sports a 1.4 litre motor that churns out 75 bhp of power and 110 Nm of torque.
