Pros : Space, Sturdy look, pick up
Cons : The rear of the car is almost same as Logan
Honest confession… I wasn’t going to test drive this car but because of the price range I thought about it. Though after the test drive I am 100% convinced about it. My experience with the car was as follows: Look and Style Mahindra Verito isn’t one of the most stylish vehicles in town when you look at it. The car looks a little better than the Logan. Though from the rear side, it still has the same old box shape. The interior space although is commendable. The good part is, as soon as you look at the car, you can make out that it is very well built and is very sturdy. The upholstery was also good, in fact gave the car a very pleasant feel. Comfort As far as the interiors are concerned, as mentioned already, the car is very spacious with immense headroom and legroom. It is a good car to seat 5 comfortably. The rear seats are as spacious as the front, which is the best feature of this sedan. The boot space along with the seating is also very very decent. The car has all the basic comfort features like the power steering, powerful AC, power windows etc. make the drive very comfortable and pleasant. The problem though was that the indicators are still on the left hand, but guess once you drive this car on a regular basis, this is something that can be dealt with. Pickup The handling of the car was surprisingly good with the quick pickup and easy acceleration. The seating position could be manually adjusted to and fro as well as the height. This is surely a feature that adds to the comfortable handling. Mileage The company and reviews claim a mileage of 15-17 for the diesel model. After the test drive it seemed believable because of the comfort of the drive, easy gear shifts and ease of handling. Best Features Without the doubt the best feature of the car was the space. Moreover, I would give the handling and smoothness of gear shifts a 6/10. (Don’t know how true it is, but I have heard that this gear shift smoothness doesn’t last for long.) Needs to improve For me, along with the looks, Mahindra might want to work on probably the brand image of the sedan or its positioning, whatever you want to call it. (Though the Verito man definition- strong, sturdy, rugged, well built… that’s actually true… ) Overall Experience Overall the test drive was decent. I might actually consider buying the car after a little research on the internet and probably a conversation with my mechanic. There isn’t anything wrong with the car or it isn’t that the car is lacking but somehow the feel of the car isn’t something that made me go “WOW” but then again, maybe I am a difficult shopper.
