ET has a report on the Mahindra hatchback that has been spotted testing in and around Chennai last month. The hatchback is to be called the ‘Vibe’ and will be based on the Verito platform.
The hatchback will continue to be powered by the 1.5 L diesel and be lesser than 4m in length to avail the excise duty benefits. The report also claims that the diesel hatchback will be priced at Rs. 6 Lakhs and go head on head with the i20 and the Swift.
We aren’t sure if Mahindra would deviate from the tradition of naming their cars with an ‘O’ at the end, and we doubt if the hatch would actually be called the Vibe.
