Review – Mahindra Verito Vibe D6

Posted on: Jul 18, 2013 - 8:00am IST

Having intensely discussed every aspect of the Verito Vibe during the run up to its launch, from the launch, and post its launch (you can catchup on all the coverage here), we’re not wasting anytime introducing the car to you again. So shall we begin our review?

Mahindra Verito Vibe

Is the Verito Vibe an ugly car?

Actually, No! [Note: The color may not be to everyone’s tastes, but lets talk about the Vibe’s deign for today.]

If you think the Vibe looks odd (or as I like to call it, a village idiot), you should spend a day with the car. The looks definitely grow on you. Initially, we thought that we would be laughed at for driving around in this village idiot, but au contraire. 99% of the people who saw the Vibe loved it for it’s design! They thought that it looked sporty and had a ‘youthful’ look (just as Mahindra’s marketing described it to be). In short, the Vibe was loved by a lot of people.

LEDs look pretty good.

Moving on to the finer aspects of the design. The front sees headlights with a ‘smoked’ or darkened lens. Looks pretty good. On the sides, you get some ‘champagne color’ alloy wheels, which is not the best color for wheels. Plain silver (matte or gloss) would have looked better.

The taillights feature LEDs, but they come on only when you have your headlights i.e they don’t work as the brake lights. The design of the rear is pretty good. Even the boot (which seems to be like an oven) grows on you over time.

    I don’t see anything appealing in this car except that it has fairly large interiors with good seating capacity for three and the engine sourced from Renault.

    Please, get away with multi page format. This is irritating. If you want to persist with it for mobile & low bandwidth users, then at least provide option to view article in single page format!

      Hi Vipul,

      We meant no harm. Just used it in the context of how certain international media use it. ‘Village idiot’ being referred to a an old and dated styling. No harm meant.

        Never mind the village idiot. I’m wondering who are the city idiots that think this is a good idea. This would never fly in Europe. You do not create a two-box design without opening the whole of the tailgate. The last time I remember this happening was 1980, with the Opel Kadett D, and by 1982 those bodies were out of the market, only the hatchback remaining.

    The C pillar itself is enough to call it a ‘Ugly Car’. Its unbelievable that this review appreciates a dated design!
