The Mahindra Verito Vibe, yes that is what the sub 4 metre edition of the Verito is called as.
The car has been testing in and around Chennai for quite sometime now and we have supplied you with copious amount of spyshots. Here is the latest one, this time from our friends at Motor Vikatan. The spyshot reveals the minor changes that Mahindra has done to the cabin of the top-end variant.
For starters, the interior design and layout are exactly similar but there are few changes in the color treatment. For example, the aircon vents have black accents while that of the Verito have silver garnish. The seat fabrics appear to be of a different tone. The brushed aluminium finish around the aircon and audio controls are replaced with conventional black trim. The knobs are tipped in chrome.
The Mahindra Verito Vibe will be powered by the Renault 1.5 litre K9K diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Mahindra confirmed yesterday that the sub 4 metre car will be launched next month.

With the Honda Amaze creating quite a stir in the segment, it will be interesting to see the market positioning of the Verito Vibe which is clearly not as much a sedan as the Amaze or even the Swift Dzire for that matter.
So far the Swift Dzire controlled the sub-4m sedan segment, but the launch of Amaze has changed the scenario. Will the Verito Vibe prove more problematic to the Dzire?
