A year after Mahindra & Mahindra announced its decision to acquire Renault’s 49 percent stake in its JV, it has re-launched the Logan as the Verito. The name is derived from the Latin ‘Veritas’ which means truth. The Verito will cost Rs. 4.82 lakh (petrol BS3 version) and Rs 5.62 lakh (Diesel BS3 version). A BS 4 varinat will also be available.
The Verito is will have a 1.5 DCi CRDi diesel engine or 1.4 MPFI petrol engine. Apart from the Mahindra logo, a host of new features have been added. Like the Logan, the Verito offers features like ABS with EBD, Driver Airbag, head restraint for all seats, side impact beams, driver information system etc.
Sales of the Logan have increased since M&M lowered the saloon’s price a year ago. In March, 1017 units were sold and 10,000 and odd were sold in 2010-11. The Verito will take on the Indigo Manza, Swift Dzire and the Etios. A sub-four-metre Verito will debut later this year.
