After the launch of the sub-four metre Quanto, Mahindra looks all set to launch its next offering in the segment. We found evidence of this as our alert reader Senthil Kumar spotted the Verito-based compact being tested in Chennai and sent us spy photographs.
The sub-four metre Verito is expected to sport styling cues similar to the recently facelifted Verito. We expect the front bumper of the car to be altered a bit. It will use the same basic structure as its bigger sibling, though Mahindra’s engineers have chopped off a large chunk of the boot while having retained the wheelbase. As seen in the photos, the tail-lamps have been moved upwards on the D-pillar.
As far as the mechanicals are concerned, unlike the Verito saloon which is powered by 1.4-petrol and 1.5-diesel motors, the compact version may come with only a 1.5-diesel motor.
Considering that the current Verito is priced to rival cars like the Maruti Dzire and the Tata Indigo eCS, the sub-four metre notchback version could spell trouble for competition in the segment.Also read:Mahindra Verito Executive launched
