Mahindra did almost everything possible to protect their upcoming Verito design before the launch, but as always now AutoCarIndia reader Zain has snapped the first undisguised images of the upcoming Verito in unknown location. Although we have reported the upcoming Mahindra Verito is scheduled to launch on 25 July, 2012 there in nothing official from the company yet.
From the images, we can say the refreshed Verito gets a new front grille with a chrome strip and horizontal slats. It also gets re-profiled headlamps, which could get a strip of LEDs at the bottom similar to the ones on the XUV500, and this will make the Verito the first car in its class to get this feature. The front bumper also gets new styling, and the wipers now have a conventional left-to-right sweep.
The car spotted seems to be the mid-level variant, because previously we brought you the new Verito spotted at Nashik with heavily camouflages on the front and rear-end. But the test-mule had up-market black window frames, body-coloured door cladding and alloy wheels. Now spotted variant has as many of the plastic parts are blackened-out and there are no fog lamps. There is also a thick black strip of cladding on the doors, and the window frames are body-coloured.
Under the hood, The Verito facelift will come with the same Renault 1.5 DCi CRDi diesel and 1.4 MPFI petrol engines. Like the current version, the Verito facelift may offer features like ABS with EBD, driver airbag, head restraint for all seats, side impact beams and the driver information system. The sedan is also popular in the taxi segment, as the car demands low maintenance, returns good fuel economy, has capacious interiors and comes with high reliability.
