Review – Mahindra Verito Vibe D6
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
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?
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.
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.
