Mahindra Verito Vibe Certainly Not A Vehicle of 2018
Mahindra is usually known for its rugged, big and tough SUVs but with Verito Vibe, Mahindra entered the new segment of compact cars without any thorough preparations. I am driving my Mahindra Verito Vibe from Mahindra since past 5 years, and in terms of performance including ride handling and riding quality, I have no qualms so far. Despite being the owner, I must say it?s not a car of 2018. The external appearance has dated looks. And I seriously don?t know after stopping the production, Mahindra would be resurrecting it or not. However, I must say something about the car. Its compact structure makes it quite easy to handle in city traffic conditions and it also doesn?t eat up much parking space. I found the car lacking some of the key features keeping the price tag in mind.Initially believed to be a hatchback but the Vibe is actually a compact saloon with the boot attached at the bottom of the rear windscreen. Front fa�ade comes with wide radiator grille while the bumper is painted with body colour. Inside of Mahindra Verito Vibe, you will see bare bones elements with minimum creature comfort as compared to today?s liking. Though seats are adorned with woven jacquard fabric and are well cushioned. You do get features such as USB interface, 2DIN CD player, computerized driver information instrument panel and keyless entry, but they are not enough considering the price point. Mahindra Verito Vibe is integrated with 1.5L diesel mill that generates the power of 65bhp and maximum torque of 160Nm, mated to 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine is frugal and offers splendid drivability on tap. And also, Mahindra?s low-cost ownership was one of the key things why I chose this vehicle. However, the strong penetration in the taxi-segment has deterred the car buyers from purchasing this vehicle in past few years. And top of it, at the steep price bracket of Rs. 7.38 - 8.75 Lakh, one would rather opt for popular cars such as Hyundai Elite i20, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Maruti Dzire and even compact SUVs which are all rage these days. The nice aspect was Mahindra soon realized its mistake and pull the production of this car. Maybe someday we will see Mahindra making smart moves in this segment.
