I wonder if Mahindra intentionally named it Verito,as a play on the word Vento.I know Verito stems from truth but might have also thought about good brand recall from the buying public which are used to the name Vento.Clever boys i must say.

M&M certainly are up to the challenge. if they can reposition this in to sub 4metre category and price it even better the volumes are there. Engineering also has to look in to maintaining QA levels and not let them fall in things like plastics etc.

I realized today that if they are changing the first thing they have to change is the front grilll. As they surely have to remove the Renault sign from the vehicle.

That being the case, not sure what kind of grill Verito will have, I pray to god they dont bring the gaped tooth to Verito similar to the Scorpio.. It will spoil the car.
On contrary a clean grill will make wonders to its appearence.

And the miniscule headlights too. The dash board in black (at least the top portion which reflects) may look better.

Knowing Mahindra, they will try their best to market the car with all the bells and whistles they can fit in its price range.

The Logan always had an upper hand in terms of fuel efficiency, interior space and toughness. Mahindra has already learnt a lesson about the pricing when they launched the Logan. Now that Renault is out of the picture, I hope Mahindra price the Verito correctly. If that happens it will work wonders for them in terms of sales.

If M&M is able to reduce the cost a little bit with large amount of localization, i guess it will be great. Also they need to improve some things like styling. All may agree that Logan is not a looker. They should make few things on styling the car to look more classy. Also bring in some new, cool colors. Add more flavor to the car like good stereo system, better seat quality, better interiors etc.

I am sure with only Mahindra badge, people will love the car. At least in Taxi owners it will be a hit

+1 to that, the Logan has never been a great looker. As long as they do well with the *** and dont tamper with the dynamics, it should be a hit in the taxi market. Considering the cmpetition in this price range, it is better for the Verito to be positioned as an 'underdog'!

I agree with most of your points here. I think the "VIP Tourer" edition was a good model for them. They may keep some of its features.

They should also keep the Play version without the stickers and "red alloys"

I think Mahindra has a wonderful opportunity to make a very serious impression in the entry level sedan space. They should really thank their gods who have showered them with a well engineered car without breaking much sweat. In my books it's definitely a worthy alternative to the Dezire/Manza engineering wise and more or less a match to the Etios.

My wishlist for the Logan errr Verito :
  1. Relocating the power window switches to where they belong
  2. An integrated music player and air con controls will do wonders to the look of the dash. The current stereo looks like a cheap after market fitment
  3. Larger ORVMs, preferably electrically operated
  4. A passenger Airbag
  5. And finally a small price revision will definitely not hurt

I'll definitely be ready with cash if Mahindra can do the above!!

The logan is a car that just did not click the way it should have. Had huge inside space and a good diesel engine which provided excellent economy. Some people did not like its looks and others the Taxi image. Maybe now that Mahindra is going alone, they will keep Taxi and Private owner versions separate, add frills and spruce up the interiors. The sub-4 metre logan would of course be highly welcomed for its price.

Are they allowed to use the Renault Engines? Or slowly, they would have to give that up as well?

I don't see anything there? Can you please post some pictures of the new Verito?

PS: Sweet pricing.

PPS: The vehicle looks ugly with that front grill! Sabertooth strikes back!

For those who wanted a good looking front, I was wrong.
The Front part of the vehicle has not changed at all only the front badge has changed.

Here is the pic I picked from the ebroucher.

Only the back has changed a bit, which is very similar to the Toyota Etios, which was already known..
