Mahindra has launched the facelifted Verito, giving it a much-needed revision to its exterior and interior styling.
Like the earlier model, the new Verito comes in both petrol and diesel versions. The base petrol variant is priced at Rs 5.21 lakh, while the diesel variant starts at Rs 6.05 lakh.
With the facelift, Mahindra has done away with the boxy looks that plagued the erstwhile Logan. The car gets an almost Skoda-like new front grille (complete with chrome strip and vertical slats), the chin is now more rounded and the new Verito gets re-profiled angular headlamps as well. Look closely and you’ll see that the wipers now correctly sweep left-to-right as well.
The rear has also been made less boxy. The number plate is now at the centre of the bootlid, while horizontal slashes across the rear help break up the mass of the squarish boot.
There are some significant improvements to the interior design and a Scorpio-like music system now dominates the centre console. The power window switches are now in a more convenient position on the doors.
This fresh new look is sure to enhance the Verito’s appeal, which, in this guise, should stand up much better to its direct rivals like the Toyota Etios and Maruti Dzire.
The new Verito is available in both BSIII and BSIV guises.
