ACI Scoop: Mahindra VERITO face-lift

Recommended Posts

Here are the first spy pictures of the facelifted Mahindra Verito,

spotted by alert reader Nikhil Aware in Nashik. From the pictures, it appears that Mahindra has given its saloon a mid-life facelift, rather than a transformation into a sub-four-metre saloon.

The facelifted Verito gets a new front grille with a chrome strip, re-profiled front bumper and fog lamp housings. The B-pillars are now blacked-out and the outside rearview mirrors get new mountings. Moving to the rear, the tail lamps and bumper get minor tweaks and the number plate has now moved on to the redesigned bootlid.

This seems to be a good face lift. Let's wait, how much efforts are put in upgrading the interior, one of the biggest culprit of the car. M & M have to come out of the mind-block that Logan is offered for lower class and taxi market of C-segment buyers. If they try to target the buyers of Verna and Vento, they can atleast get ahead of Manza and Etios buyers. They have all the good things in car like engine, chasis, space etc.. what they need to improve is the feel of the car from inside out. See the sales numbers for Sunny, it has it's own class with the same engine. Just due to better exterior, interior and package for the price. Hope M&M is listening. All the best.

No amount of facelifts can save this car , it has tried to do it before to no effect , no wonder it retains the title of the ugliest car on indian roads , the Etios is its closest competetor fighting its spot for the top most ugly car.

 

Though Toyota was smart it realised it early and now bulk of its production is going into the taxi segment ,Mahindra on the other hand are still trying to sell this ugly looker to us commoners , how many of us would like to be seen in a Verito ? is my basic question.

 

Its time they woke up and mass produced the car for the Taxi Segment if they want it to do some numbers, Even good lookers like the Old Swift Dzire are also heading that way ,Accents also did it successfully , dont know what is stopping them .

 

Though you are right about its engine its really good , have experienced a diesel one and loved it completely.

Though it is a welcome move from M&M to revive Verito, but I would be more excited to see a Verito CS by this time since the noise about it is already in the air for more than 6 to 8 months now.


I hope they (M&M) are listening.

They are already struggling with the Logan / Verito , now you are giving them the idea (to introduce / for) a VERITO CS...why would you do a thing like that, let them die a slow death , such suggestion could actually kill them.

It's too little and too late. It will be swamped by newer cars like the Dzire etc. How ever cheaper they may make it to buy and own. I think giving it a face lift isn't going to make it come back into the buyer's radar.Durango Dude2012-05-09 14:53:38

But what Mahindra have done it with its Sales after dropping its price & 'Logan' name is also Surprising for Renault too.   smiley4.gif

They haven't expected such kinda response from LOGAN.

I guess, with Improved looks & Interiors Mahindra is going to conquer the Entry Sedan segment, what the New Dzire left (with its High Sticker price viz Interior Space).

As currently there's No other Entry Sedan(Manza, Etios, Dzire) in the price bracket near to Verito.

Top end variant of all of its Rivals, are expensive from Verito top-end Diesel by 50k-1 lacs INR.

C'mon Mahindra its an Opportunity to grab on. smiley20.gif
