    Mahindra & Mahindra will launch a hatchback on the Verito platform next month as the country's top utility vehicle maker looks to find a place in the Indian car market as well.

    The new car, the Vibe, will be priced competitively with the diesel version at around `6 lakh, a person aware of the company's plans said. It will take on Maruti SuzukiBSE 0.39 % Swift, Hyundai i20 and Volkswagen Polo among others.

    The Verito Vibe will sport the same 1.5-litre Renault diesel engine that powers Verito and will be less than four metres in length to attract lower excise duty of 12%. Larger cars need to pay 24-27% excise.

    It is Mahindra's policy that the names of all their vehicles end with "o". Then why's the Vibe different?

    BTW, India loves the worst designs. It may succeed too. :)

    Maybe they will call it Vibo :). Or maybe Verio.

    But what the hell have they done to the car?! Hope it's not the actual picture because compared to this, the Verito looks like a Ferrari!

    Vibe launched today. The Verito Vibe will come in three variants D2 (Rs 5.63 lakh), D4 (Rs 5.89 lakh) and D6 (Rs 6.49 lakh).

    It now seems the big daddy of all ugliest cars sold in India. Usually manufacturers in India add a boot to already available Hatch and call it a sedan. Mahindra wanted to create a new trend by removing the boot in their sedan and call it a Hatch (Vibe). :evilsmile

    There should be some sort of authority in place to save us Indian consumers from these ugly designs.
