It enhances value by being more stylish and contemporary, feature packed and with convenient ergonomics. I am sure that the New Look Verito will heighten its appeal not only amongst its core customers but also amongst people looking at options for a more stylish sedan. In fact, the best in class mileage, features, space and comfort combined with the attractive price of the new Verito will make it a truly irresistible value proposition.
