The antenna is placed in the front is abnormally and the rear is a bit lifted as well. The with the design of the Verito is the matching of the front and rear, simply don t go together. It is clear two very different design worked on this car (front was by Dacia, the rear is done by

Interiors – The interiors are identical to the sedan which means you get a which has generous space for Quality inside is just average and some plastic are really hard in touch and The use of beige inside makes the feel a bit airy and pseudo fibre inserts on the dash the monotony. The centre console the black treatment with shaped buttons.

The audio is lifted off from other vehicles and offers decent quality with good options. The rear speakers been placed at the rear shelf instead of the rear and this enhances the sound.

The of the Verito Vibe shut a loud thud, they are but the positioning of the door handles is too and the driver finds the power buttons intruding while the door. The lock/unlock buttons are below the right most AC which is an ergonomic overlook. The cluster is easy to read and has display carrying a wide of information including distance to and average fuel efficiency The seats although wide, are a bit too offering decent under support. There is a seat pocket on the co-driver s seat but not the driver s seat.

Rear seat passengers not complain about legroom or and all rear headrests are adjustable.
