Old looking design however looks better than Big version. Look like solid built car.
Modifications like new headlamps, Body colored bumpers/mirror and alloy wheel looks good.
Still getting lots of second glances .
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
Except from Plastic quality is used rest of Interior is good. Ample of space and truly 5 seater car.
Boot space - space better than Desire though efforts needed . AC, Music system is good.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
Engine performance is linear and stable. Light clutch.
Milage of 15-17Kmpl in City /20 Kmpl on highway with AC .
Ride Quality & Handling
Ride Quality is excellent and jerk less journey even on worst quality roads.
while steering is bit heavy at parking speed.
Using Verito vibe since last 6 months. We were looking for disel car which can provide good space , milage and good handling however budget is 7-7.5 lakh on road cost. Instead of going for big version choose sub 4 meter version which saves 1.8L [80k (Price) + 80K (12% Duty) +LBT/Insurance]. Except of old design looks and lower plastic quality car has no downsides. Looks like solid built comparing to other asian competitors.
Renault Engine performance is linear and stable. Light clutch is excellent for City driving.Gear Box and breaks are good. Pick up is not like punch but not below par. Vehicle run at speed of 100-110kmph while drove at speed of 145kmph on express way.Got milage of 15-17Kmpl in City drive while 20.5 Kmpl on highway with AC and 23 without AC. Economy speed is 80-90 kmph on 5th gear.
Mahindra Service is good and affordable comparing to some competitors.
Real good car for family who wants to use in City as well as planning for regular outings on weekends.
Areas of improvement
Plastic Quality, Bit Heavy Steering @low speed.
