Verito pep up. Retains Logan!
I have to speak the truth here. Only the truth! Because, I’m gonna talk about the new face-lifted Mahindra “Verito”, etymologically roots from the Latin word ‘Veritas’ meaning truth. A short time ago, I test drove the new Verito sedan and have to admit that I’m quite surprised with what have been done, though my expectations were not very high earlier.
The original Logan was widely criticised for its boxy and fairly passe looks and the subsequent Mahindra re-badged version was the same. That design, in any case, was in major need of refreshing, and any revitalizing is always going to be welcomed. And now, the car looks very different and eye-catching though the skeleton and sides reminds you of the Logan. The front grille had been majorly tweaked (looks more ‘Kia’ – like!!) and the chrome gives the car a new character. The headlamps have been redesigned and with the new bumper, the car is now a typical Mahindra.
The side moldings that are added to the doors and the roof rails grabs our attention (I’m not sure I like them, they look bit plasticky), but a good effort. The rear is where we can sense phenomenal changes – gone are the too flat and dated boot lid and tail lamps. The reworked tail lamps and the chrome strip complements the smart-looking rear design and is now justly contemporary. The dash looks pretty attractive but feels a bit over done with too many textures and colours, though the original Logan layout is still present. The power window switches have been moved to the doors and the in-built music system (top-end) is reasonably good.
