It’s that time of a new car’s testing period where we get to see a different set of spyshots on a daily basis.

The car in question is the Mahindra Verito CS (yes, we’re still calling it that). And today’s quota of the spy shots come from Team BHP member ‘Crazy Driver’.

These pictures only confirm what we’ve been speculating the Verito CS to be - A notchback.

However, the both photos do reveal the side profile of the car very clearly. It seems as though Mahindra has just about managed to keep the proportions under 4m in length. Another interesting thing can be seen in the rear tail-lights, the entire light assembly seems to be a few inches taller than the glass of the car. Thus, when the entire hatch opens up, it could resemble something like say the Tata Indica.

Another interesting feature on this test mule is the alloy wheel design. It seems to be a 10-spoke alloy wheel and it would be interesting to see if Mahindra offers a similar design on the car when it is launched.

Brushing up our Mahindra Verito CS coverage

  • The car should come with the same 1.5-liter diesel engine as found on the full-fledged sedan. A petrol option would be unlikely as Mahindra do not have a small sub-1.2-liter petrol motor in their portfolio.
  • A suffix would be introduced to the Verito name to differentiate it from the sedan.
  • And finally, Dr. Pawan Goenka told us that the launch could be sometime by the end of March.
