Mahindra Verito Vibe D6 – Built to glide past rough roads

Mahindra is an eminent auto firm in India; the company has touched ground breaking skills in automobile technology. It has released amazing and super efficient SUV’s which has resulted in impressive profit fortunes. Mahindra has explored the sedan segment as well with the Verito, the reliability factors with this car has been supreme, and this has led the company to build a hatch version of the car called Verito Vibe.

Mahindra Verito Vibe launched in india

The car made a grand appearance in early June, and this is the peak monsoon season, car enthusiasts have test driven the car and rated their experience to be amazing. An important factor to note with the Vibe is, it is not just a hatchback version of Verito, but is sprinkled with a creative design formula which has rarely been explored, which is a boxy design. Car enthusiasts were amazed with the ability of Vibe to cruise through Mumbai’s unpleasant pot holes, and during June where rains pour to infinity, the experience to cruise through such uneven circumstances is daunting. The Vibe was glorious even under the most terrorized road conditions in Mumbai and could maneuver through flooded terrain with ease.

Most people would be curious about the hidden formula used in Vibe D6 version for its splendid capacity to drift pass robust roads. The answer lies in the tires used, which is JK R14 185/70, travelling on muddy and slippery roads is a frightening and tedious task, one can imagine the driver’s nerves at high speeds. According to car fans, there is nothing to worry about at a significant level; the car is known to glide past tough paths at decent speeds. Car enthusiasts have driven the car under tormenting road conditions back and forth from Mumbai to Pune.

The main concern with the car was the harsh eco impact when back door was opened, and the doors were bit heavy on the shoulders. The fuel meter did not function to its optimum, even after fuelling the car, the meter displayed lower figures. Those who own or have read about the Verito, will be familiar with the interior comfort levels offered by the car, five occupants and heavy luggage did not pose stuffy issues, when car enthusiasts were on their way to have a blast at friends farm house. The experience through ugly potholes and slushy roads was more like a paragliding effect, occupants could barely experience bumps.

The entire journey which was a massive distance of 20,000 kms was a pleasurable one for car enthusiasts. The only possible problems were the heavy door weight. Mahindra has incorporated a brilliant and advanced engineering formula with the Vibe, evident from its incredible ability to maneuver on super harsh potholes and wet roads with ease. Mumbai monsoons are known to be tormenting, to an extent that it is a hot topic of discussion in news channels and newspapers. Indian auto firms have to dig into newer and efficient engineering solutions to combat the country’s poor and rough road scenario, which could otherwise lead to unwanted accidents. Mahindra has looked into such desperate measures and has emerged with the Vibe that does the trick marvelously.

Mahindra plans for a brand new launch; same as its Verito Version later this year

Mahindra and Mahindra automobile manufacturing company, based in India has planned to give a tough competition from its rivals with the introduction of new vehicles on the line. The three automobiles have been quite anticipated to evaluate Mahindra’s stand in the industry.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Blue

Mahindra has recently launched its Verito Vibe today which has been categorized neither as a sedan nor as a hatchback and is indeed a fusion of both the versions. Mahindra is also planning to make an onslaught of all its four meter cars. In the series of Verito Vibe, it is to be noted that Quanto was the first ever made compatible vehicle range from Mahindra and is the forerunner of Verito.

News leaks have revealed that many more products are in the queue from Mahindra and have been developed to take advantage of its technology such as S101 and S 102 for example. The company has also communicated its idea of launching another vehicle which would be based on the Verito platform.

It is to be noted that this Verito is a re-badged Logan and has been receiving enough speculation and updates over the years. This Verito Vibe vehicle would hit the roads later this year and it is more likely to share the same front end exterior styling as that of the Verito model.

There are significant other parts that are going to be shared between the two models such as the underpinnings, dashboard, engines and the seats. Spy videos and news leaks have also revealed that Mahindra has plans to launch the electric version of the Verito vehicle later next year which would be powered by the revolutionary REVA technology.

Anticipations build up every moment among automobile enthusiasts who constantly anticipate on what this new Verito based Mahindra launch is going to be. So people have come up with quite interesting options, it is not pretty easy to decide on an option and rule out the others.

Nevertheless, people anticipate Mahindra to create a Cross over version of the Verito Vibe which would have a similar version as that of the Skoda Scout and the Cross Polo vehicle from Volkswagen. It is expected that this Verito Vibe would have higher and better ground clearance, muscular looks and bigger wheels that would appeal to tough guys in the world.

News Leaks also portray that Mahindra has been developing a compact SUV as there is a higher need in the market for these vehicles. These compact SUVs would feature a front wheel drive and a monocoque chassis.

There are chances for this compact SUV to be built on the Verito version, but this would inculcate higher cost and the company has many good chances to decrease the cost of its SUV if it uses the underpinnings of its XUV500 model or from its Quanto model which features a rear wheel drive and ladder frame.

Nevertheless, we could expect new variants from the Mahindra group in the near future, and how exactly these vehicles would look like is left for us to guess until their launch day.

Mahindra Verito Vibe all set to compete with Maruti and Hyundai in the hatch Market

The highly competitive Indian hatchback market recently welcomed the Mahindra Verito Vibe. Taking note of a waning market in an SUV, which represents the car manufacturer’s major niche, Mahindra came out timely with the new hatch. Priced at around 5.6 lakhs, the Vibe is set to be among the cheapest vehicle in the passenger car market.

Mahindra Verito Vibe launched in india

The SUV market share of the company recently fell to 48 percent from 56 percent in the last fiscal year, as the data from SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) revealed. Although it is too early to confirm how the new Vibe would resonate with the frequencies of Indian hatch buyers, yet the industry is abuzz with the new entrant. The hype, combined with the low price, can well prove to be a game changer in the passenger vehicle segment.

Tough Competition Ahead

With so many passenger vehicle options available for buyers, Mahindra is well aware of the tough competition it faces. The biggest competitors are the Maruti and the Hyundai, occupying a dominant position for their longstanding reputation in making passenger cars for Indian roads.

Making things tougher, there are several other major competitors in the hatchback segment. To counter the competition, the relatively low price range is the key USP that the company is counting upon. Mahindra is also relying on its reputation of producing tough vehicles. Toughness has always been a major criterion while developing cars for Indian roads.

Targeting Youth Consciousness

The key market Vibe hopes to occupy is the young and restless Indian buyer segment, looking forward to enjoy a certain sense of power on the road. The premiere SUV manufacturer already has a name for developing power on wheels, and new buyers are likely to offer their attention to see whether the new hatch would be able to provide the formidable punch.

However, Mahindra had to attain a balance in the car design as a hatch must look homely (and not tough) to appeal to homeowners. Therefore, the exterior has a two-tow box structure, and the interior have a formidable 1.5-liter engine.

The Middle Ground

Buying the Verito Vibe can save the buyer a few lakhs and still enjoy the luxury of a good hatch. This can be a determining factor because the Indian market has a distinct characteristic of preferring lower cost products. Mahindra aims to engage the mid-level buyer segment, which does not want a too cheap or a too expensive vehicle.

Besides, Mahindra represents a unique brand appeal, connecting with the toughness to overpower road roughness. The Mahindra name has been able to establish a strong connection with the feeling of empowerment through its dominant SUV market. Whether the reputation flows into the acceptability of its new hatch would be an interesting observation for car lovers.

The Vibe boasts of precise ergonomic engineering. The interior is spacious and the doors open nicely. The black and light gray dashboard gives out a sense of smooth strength. The chromed dials further contribute to a classy feeling. The car also has a 50-liter fuel tank that is ahead of its competitors. With all these features set to impress, hatchback buyers can expect a great performance from Mahindra Vibe.

Mahindra Verito Vibe versus Hyundai i20

Verito is a professionally designed car that is positioned somewhere between a hatch and sedan and is actually a hatch. From the front the car resembles the Verito with slight modifications in head light console. The grille in the front portion contributes a fair deal to the trendy image. An interesting feature is the black shade on the roof rails which is identical to that found in its elder sibling. The Vibe is artistically designed into a three box structure that from the side angle resembles a miniature car. From the cars’ profile it is pretty evident that the car is built with large boot area. The tail lights at the rear are designed to perfection and make the car appear classy from all angles.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Blue

The interiors in the most loaded model is designed with dual theme, the seats are designed with premium upholstery. The interior volume is abundant to enjoy a comfortable and relaxed drive experience. One interior feature that offers stiff competition is the boot volume at 350 liters which makes this an ideal vacation car. Some of the other interesting interior fitments are world class two Din music devise, power windows and standard safety features for optimum protection such as EBD, ABS and air bag in driver’s compartment. For an interesting piece of information the boot area is higher than even one of the top sellers in India Swift Dzire designed by Maruti Suzuki.

The Vibe is constructed with a powerful 1.5 liter engine with advanced K9K technology that churns impressive efficiencies of 160Nm peak torque and 65bhp highest power. The car is a sure shot winner in terms of mileage as well at 21 kpl and priced at Rs 4.5 to 6.5 lakhs.

The i20 is one of the most popular sedan models of Hyundai; the car is known to have replaced the trendy Getz. In terms of design the car is splashed with artistic influences from European styles. The car is splashed with inventive curves that flow through the entire segment of the car. The eye catchy design is contributed by the robust design of waist circumference and five spoke wheels carved with pristine alloy material.

2012 Hyundai i20

The interiors are designed to offer a royal atmosphere with audio devises mounted to steering wheel, there is a fuel reading devise, world class music system with USB facilities. There is a glove compartment and cup holders; the space offered by interiors is enormous with sufficient leg, head and knee room.

The i20 is built with a powerful 1.4 liter engine with the advanced common rail direct engine technology inserted with sixteen valves that churns impressive efficiencies of 22Nm peak torque and highest power of 89 bhp.  The mileage offered is 16.2 km and priced at Rs 4.8 to 7.8 lakhs.

In terms of design the i20 is a more interesting product especially for those who are into car designs. In terms of interiors both cars are on par, Vibe over powers the i20 in terms of mileage which makes a more value for money product compared to i20. The Vibe is a more worthy purchase in terms of engine efficiency as well.

The i20 is a good buy for ideal city drive conditions and Vibe is more reliable for frequent long distance travels.

A look at the Mahindra Verito Vibe D6

Mahindra & Mahindra ventured into the passenger car market with the launch of the new Verito Vibe. This sub 4 meter hatchback was developed on the platform of the very popular sedan Verito. The Vibe has been speculated a lot being a chop-shop job, as the car features the basic design and shares a lot of common body panels with the Verito sedan along with a slashed boot.

mahindra verito vibe

It has been also talked about a lot that the Mahindra Vibe does not look like a conventional hatchback and it has a rather odd design language especially at its rear end. So does the car really look that bad or odd?

The answer is that the car looks practical enough. In fact, when we took it out for the road test we found a lot of people interested in the new car and even appreciating its unique looks. Thus, people of this new age actually seem to be appealed by this car’s unique looks as was marketed by Mahindra.

This new Mahindra hatch features smoked lens on its headlights that looks rather classy. It also features champagne colored alloy wheels, which is again rather off beat.

The Vibe have unique stylish taillights that feature LED lights, however you get to show them off only when the headlights are on, as they don’t work like brake lights. The front fascia of the car is conventional and its rear design is little different that the others. Its oven like boot will also become acceptable once to drive this car and spend some time with it.

As for the interiors, it is already a known fact that the Vibe has borrowed the exact cabin of the Verito. The Vibe’s steering wheel seems to be very large, and the power steering assistance is also not up to the mark. Its 2 DIN music system is also really unimpressive. However, the overall appearance of the Vibe’s interior gives to a very functional feel.

Under the hood, the Vibe is run by the same Renault 1.5 K9k diesel engine that runs the Verito sedan. The competent engine produces 65 Bhp, and is very well appreciated an urban motor though with its slight turbo lag. The motor is very responsive and is one of the most functional diesel engines that you can get in a hatch.

The Mahindra Verito Vibe also features a good boot space of 330 liters. However, the boot is located very high and the boot lid mechanism also feels rather fragile.

During our road test of the Vibe, the car showed the fuel efficiency of more than 13 kilometer per liter of diesel on an extensive traffic stricken city road drive. Thus, the car’s fuel economy is rather good.

The Verito Vibe also has competent price tags, with Rs. 5.63 lakhs for the base D2 model, and Rs. 5.89 lakhs for D4, while our test drive top trim model costs Rs. 6.49 lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai). However, if you are in Delhi, you will have to shed quite a bit more.

Review of D6 variant of Mahindra Verito Vibe

The Verito Vibe is a uniquely designed car by Mahindra to an extent that is has elements of notch and hatchback with a three box design. The car is professionally sculpted to the likes of modern and conventional taste of Indian demographic, and portrays a vibrant and sporty appeal; hence the name suits the car to the hilt.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Blue

The LED lights are the striking feature of the car that would attract customers; the head lights in front display a spectacular image as well. The design and shade of alloy wheel is something to consider with a unique champagne shade that is interesting and different compared to the usual silver shade.  The rear design represents professionalism that actually brings back olden times in a modern day format.

The car is designed in a way that is resembles a sedan as well which is pretty evident when placed next to Maruti Suzuki Dzire. This is where creativity and professionalism comes into effect where the car is molded into a classic hatch that resembles a notch and even a sedan. Mahindra has definitely created an inventive design formula.

In terms of interiors the resemblance is identical to the posh Verito atmosphere; the steering is bulky with no audios. The comfort levels however are known to be amazing to meet the demand of those who suffer from muscle aches and modern day demographic. The interior volume is stunning that can easily fit in three occupants in the back compartment. The other concern is the insufficient storage area. The air conditioner has an amazing cooling effect to beat the intense summer heat in Chennai. The safety features are satisfactory but not up to international standards, there are no airbags in the side even in loaded D6 model, there are ORVMs which can be electrically adjusted and ABS.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Rear

The Vibe is equipped with a powerful 1.5 liter engine with high tech K9k technology that churns remarkable energy of 65bhp and offers a smooth drive experience to overcome unsatisfactory Indian road conditions with ease. The formula of shift gear ratios is amazing especially in ideal city conditions. The car can be driven in jam packed traffic conditions with ease.  According to sources the car could move from the lowest speed point of 0 km in the third or fourth gear which is indeed marvelous for a breathtaking initial pick up.

The Vibe is not all that powerful in highway conditions, and the engine power is at the highest only at 1,500 to 2,500 rpm. The primary drawback of the car is the steering with its bulkiness feels heavy even at low speeds. The brakes function efficiently with sufficient deceleration figures. The brakes are designed in a way to avoid strong impacts during unavoidable circumstances without modifying its position.

The Vibe is a worthy purchase for ideal city driving conditions, and is not the best bet for frequent high way travel. For those who travel short working distances on a daily basis can purchase the car for its excellent brake mechanisms. The exterior design and interior comfort of the car is impressive. The safety features are decent but not excellent.

Mahindra Verito Vibe built in a unique fashion

Most reputed companies manufacture sedans from hatchbacks which is evident with Tata Indigo, Honda Amaze and Maruti Swift Dzire. All these models are built with creative engineering techniques by fitting ample interior space in a compact car of below four meters to take advantage of low tax benefits. Mahindra has followed a different trend with the chop off theme, the Quanto is a shortened version of Xylo, and the Vibe is a chopped version of Verito sedan.

mahindra verito vibe

The design language of Vibe is unique and interesting, although it is a hatch, the design could appear different for a section of Indians with the three box styling. There are some sedan elements in the car as well, there is clear demarcation between the boot and passenger segment. This is extremely visible if one observes the design structure of the car from all angles, the sedan language is evident from the side angle. The back portion is inserted with a novel sporty language with prominent tail lights which illuminates during night periods. The main concern with the car is the rear is not in sync with boot, the boot volume is impressive at 330 liters, but it is a tedious process to access the boot.

One characteristic that would thrill ardent car fans is the design of Vibe which could resemble a hatch and sedan from certain angles, and there is also the boxy theme which is rather hidden by grille, wheel arches and head lights in front. Sources have stated that the response was extremely positive in towns.

The interior room is a significant feature of the car, for midsized families, this is ideal at least five occupants can enjoy heightened comfort, with more than sufficient leg room. The comfort levels are pretty decent with head rests; the seats in front offer ample comfort which makes even long and sunny drives pleasurable. Ardent car fans who test drove this car have made an interesting statement, that those who complain about insufficient shoulder, leg and head room are asking for too much. The only concern with interiors is the center console is positioned on a low level and is a difficult task to operate air cons and music systems. The steering wheels have no audio controls. Taller people will take time to have a firm grip of the car since there are height adjustment facilities for steering. The interior build quality is satisfactory, not to the likes of luxury car enthusiasts, but would appeal to those who are into simple designs.

The Vibe is incorporated with a dynamic 1.5 liter engine with dCi technology adopted from Verito. The engine releases efficiencies which is slightly higher than 60bhp, but is built with powerful engineering tools with admirable torque capacity that results in smooth driving process. The mileage is pretty impressive at 20.8kmpl with a powerful fuel capacity of 50 liters that can cover more than 800km in ideal city conditions.

The car is priced reasonably at Rs 5.6 lakhs which is pretty decent for diesel models. This is a reliable model for those who have to travel long distances to work and most interestingly do not have to worry about fuelling your car frequently.

Mahindra Verito Vibe versus Honda Amaze

Mahindra has recently launched the Verito Vibe in the form of a compact hatch, the car has supreme artistic insertions that it is positioned somewhere between a sedan and a hatch. The appearance, especially at the rear resembles the design used during retro periods.

Mahindra Verito Vibe Blue

The Vibe design is identical to the Verito sedan; there is however minor modifications in head light console. On the front grille there is a protective covering, the roof has an interesting and unique theme with black roof rails identical to its elder sibling. When observed closely from rear and side, the difference is obvious. The rear is decorated with three box compartment that is identical to small wagon, from this angle there is a clear picture that the car has spacious boot. The style statement on the rear is imaginative and one of a kind, with aggressive thick lamp console and portion of boot lid.

The interiors are refreshing with double tone interior theme, with amazing interior polish, the interior volume is pretty significant to accommodate many adult occupants, and on the rear there is a bench to fit in three adults. The volume of the boot is an important point to note, which is 350 liters, bigger than its stiff competitors and entry level sedan models. To the amazement of company and Mahindra fans, the boot volume is higher than Swift Dzire.

The car is offered with diesel engine only, with a below 1200cc capacity to take advantage of excise benefits, and also do away with gasoline car. The diesel power train is equipped with 1.5 liter engine with K9K technology that releases impressive efficiencies of 160Nm peak torque and highest power of 65bhp, the mileage is excellent as well at 21kpl. The car is priced at Rs 4.5-6.5 lakhs.

The Amaze is a sedan version of Brio hatchback, with an under four meter dimension. An interesting point to note is this is Honda’s first diesel project, on the exterior, when compared with Brio, the creases and roof line is different. The tail lights are a dominant feature on rear, the attractive design feature is enhanced with large dimensioned chrome that flows to the boot to the likes of Scala and Dzire. The appeal of Amaze is not as exciting as the image of Vibe.

Honda Amaze

With respect to interiors, Amaze follows the same design pattern as other Honda cars. The most loaded version is equipped with high tech fitments such as steering mounted audio controls. The dimension of wheelbase is increased by 2405mm; the boot space is a noteworthy feature at 400 liters, which is admirable for a car dimension of below 4 meters. The main concern with interiors is the non folding capacity of rear seats.

The Amaze diesel is incorporated with 1.5 liter engine with iDTEC technology that churns impressive efficiencies of 200Nm peak torque and 100PS power. The mileage is incredible at 25.8 kpl which is the best in its class. The car is priced at Rs 5-7.6lakhs.
In terms of design, the Vibe is a better option with its heightened creativity and imaginative insertions. The Amaze is a professional make, but the design is not out of the ordinary. With boot volume, the Amaze is a better option; the engine efficiency and pricing of both models are similar. Amaze has created an overwhelming impact with mileage. The interiors of Vibe is breathtaking and can accommodate many occupants, the most interesting is rear bench.
