Editorial Test Drive Review of Mahindra Verito Vibe

 The Maindra Verito Vibe has been launched and without a doubt is one of the most important launches by Mahindra. One look at these pictures of the Mahindra Verito Vibe and it looks like a hatch however with a fixed rear windscreen and the fact that the boot is opened sedan style with the boot lid at the bottom of the windscreen, it is actually a compact sedan. Though to the eyes of most, the Vibe looks like a hatch. The Verito hatchback will be under 4 meters to take benefit of laws regarding vehicles under 4 meters. This is a clever move as instead of shrinking the boot it has been shaped like a hatch which means space and legroom will be as good as the Verito sedan. The first thing that hits you when you look at the rear is the large tail-lamps which look attractive and big tail-gate. The rear bumper is also neatly finished plus as you can see you get roof-rails. However what is slightly disappointing is that from the front it has the same front end as the Verito sedan save for some minor tweaks like carbon-finished front grille, smoked headlamps and dual-tone rear bumper. The interior is functional and focussing more on practicality side. The design is clearly picked up whole-sale from the Verito sedan. So that means it has comfortable interiors. Just like the Verito sedan the Vibe is spacious and has excellent headroom and legroom. In fact the Verito Vibe will be one of the most spacious cars in its class beating the Toyota Etios Liva in this regard too. This is something that will appeal to many.  It has a 330 lit boot space and has 3 adjustable rear headrests. There are three variants with D2, D4 and D6. The top model has 2 DIN music system with CD/USB/MP3/Aux-in and two-tone upholstery. There is no steering controls or Bluetooth. On the engines expect the same diese unit as in the Verito sedan.  The Verito Vibe will have only a diesel option in its range and there will be no petrol option because Mahindra currently do not have a small petrol engine in its portfolio. It will be powered by the 1.5 litre Renault K9K diesel engine and as we have discovered in other applications it is decent to drive and very economical to boot.  It has 64 bhp which means you will wish for more horses. Just like the sedan the Verito Vibe is not that much of a handler but is decent and stability is good. In safety terms it has ABS with EBD, Driver Airbag, Cross-member located in the boot for extra protection in the rear and Side - impact beams.The Vibe is pretty efficient with an average of 20.8 kmpl. Just like the sedan the Verito Vibe rides very well and soaks up the bumps better than many of its rivals. Guess the handling has been traded for this.The Verito Vibe D2 starts from 5.63 lakh while the top D6 is at Rs 6.49 lakh. For a detailed analysis read below.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Space
  • Value for money

Cons

  • Weird boot opening

Mahindra Verito Vibe Exteriors

 As you can see from the pictures it seems that Mahindra have made a big effort to make the Verito Vibe attractive. It is not just a job of cutting the boot of a Verito sedan as you can see.  It looks like a hatch however with a fixed rear windscreen and the fact that the boot is opened sedan style with the boot lid at the bottom of the windscreen, it is actually a compact sedan. This is a clever move as instead of shrinking the boot it has been shaped like a hatch which means space and legroom will be as good as the Verito sedan. The first thing that hits you when you look at the rear is the large tail-lamps which look attractive and big tail-gate. The rear bumper is also neatly finished plus as you can see you get roof-rails. However what is slightly disappointing is that from the front it has the same front end as the Verito sedan save for some minor tweaks like carbon-finished front grille, smoked headlamps and dual-tone rear bumper.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Front design

While the rear looks smart, taking a walk around the front reveals that the bean counters at Mahindra seemed to have it their way. The front and side is pure Verito sedan and nothing major has been done to the rest which is slightly disappointing as the front and the rear end seem to be divorced from each other and have no design connection. The only changes include the smoked headlamps and carbon finished grille.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Rear design

Walk up to the Vibe and on first account, it seems to be a good looking hatchback when viewed from the rear. The design influences like the large LED (first in class) tail-lamps are all pointing towards it being a hatch.

The side profile of the Vibe is a hatch and not seem like a sedan

What we like

 As good as the sedan


What we don't like

 Refinement can be better


Mahindra Verito Vibe Comfort

The best part of the Verito Vibe is its ride which is super and just absorbs everything thrown at it. The ride is easily the best in class and all the bumps and potholes are just gobbled up with ease.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Front suspension

front suspension has Macpherson-type with wishbone link

Mahindra Verito Vibe Rear suspension

rear suspension has H-Section torsion beam with programmed deflection-coil spring

Mahindra Verito Vibe Engine & Performance

 On the engines expect the same diese unit as in the Verito sedan.  The Verito Vibe will have only a diesel option in its range and there will be no petrol option because Mahindra currently do not have a small petrol engine in its portfolio. It will be powered by the 1.5 litre Renault K9K diesel engine and as we have discovered in other applications it is decent to drive and very economical to boot.  It has 64 bhp which means you will wish for more horses.
