IMHO, the rear is very well executed by Mahindra for the dimension constraints they're having with them to design this sub 4m compact hatch/sedan/notchback.

It looks more of like a Ford Figo from the rear with tail-lamps on its C-pillar, which is very smartly gelled into the tail-lamps.

See these two pics carefully, shown below:

Now see the same pics with encircled areas. these areas are basically the spaces made for the opening & movement of the hinges of the trunk-lid of the car, which probably seems to be made to open in the way as shown in the diagramatical representation below.

Nice work.

If this is how it opens up , it will surely be a pain to fit in luggage.Most suvs have a double split boot door to ease the loading and unloading of luggage.

Here any big item say a large suitcase will have to be slided in diagonally or be slided in horizontally and raised vertically once inside.

Hoping it opens up the whole way and has two Hinges , One near the ROOF SECTION (for fitting in slightly bigger luggage) and one where you pointed out (for those smaller things) ,Just the lower one would be indeed troublesome.

Yeah.. a boot opening like the Laura/Octavia would be great.

The good part is that the rear seat legroom does not seem to be compromised for the boot space.

I agree it'll be a very odd dimension car, but it'll still have a good amount of storage in the last box.

Great find and nice pictures dr_nishu.

Indian market is flooded with ugly looking vehicles so Verito Hatchback will be just an addition and people are quite used to accept and let-go the look factor if they are getting what they want inside the vehicle.

Whatever M&M is doing is going to benefit them only because people have developed certain kind of confidence in M&M vehicles and by adding a hatchback in their line-up will increase more people visiting M&M showroom.

The USP of this hatch will be strong underpinning and low running cost which are the main factors people are looking for in hatchback.

Great going M&M, best of luck.

Looks weird in the spy pictures but then as tejas said as long as the product is good, looks really dont matter. The Dzire is a fine example here. Good work by Mahindra there. This has a good potential to fly of the shelves once launched. Not to mention it already has a bullet proof engine.

Given a choice between Indica Vista, Chevrolet Sail, Fiat Punto, Nissan Micra and Verito Hatch , Verito Hatch seems to be just right product with following reasons which tick mark all the required points

1 - Brand & Manufacturer

2 - Proven , tried and tested Diesel Engine

3 - Fuel Economy

4 - Interior space + Luggage space

5 - Reasonable pricing (Mahindra have never overpriced their vehicles for the features they have offered)

6 - Service Network

Tata Vista can do better but there is still something is missing in Vista which make people to opt for something else than Tata Vista.

The Tata Fiesta...um...Vista lacks refinement, build quality and decent service support. The Verito hatch is a bit disappointing because it's a previous generation model, and will have to be not just updated to current standards but also priced a lot lower- possibly less than Tata Vista. However, if this is a comeback for the fastback/notchback/liftback design, it's good news. Even the most successful notchback in our country, the Skoda Octavia, has become too much of a sedan. The car won't exactly set a trend for long hatches, but with enough BHP under the hood, it will be good for those who enjoy a drive full of action.

So all in all, Mahindra is re-inventing the wheel in this case. They cou'dlve tried and launched the Sandero in India instead.

They cant. They have only the rights to manufacture the Logan only in its present version or with any modifications Mahindra themselves make on it along with the Engine. The Sandero is a Renault product and Renault and Mahindra have parted ways.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Interiors snapped:

post-67-0-69063800-1365882885_thumb.jpg

(source: as mentioned on the pic)

Interiors of Verito Vibe are almost same as Verito sedan.

Visible differences being Black bezel-ed AC vents(instead of Silver in Verito), Wooden finish centre console, Wooden finish dash-top box handle & different seat fabric/upholstery.

@mods: Officially this car is named as Mahindra Verito Vibe, so please change the thread title to this name.

Excellent catch Nishu & PH, M&M has actually given the rear a SUVish kind of looks. Very different from others in the segment, though it would be treated as Hatchback.

From design perspective, though it still seems non-cohesive but still M&M has tried to offer something different from regular CS.

And for a change their product name doesn't seem to end with an 'o'.

Practicality of a already 'just practical' car taken to next level.

Hope they have not compromised on interior space. ( i think they can't, because altering the wheelbase and indirectly altering the chasis is not allowed to Mahindra as per agreement with Renault).

The taxi segment would find it more easy on their wallet.

This won't bring huge volumes to the company but may take present sales numbers from 1500 to somewhere near 2500-3000.
