Hyundai launches all-new Verna in India

It’s not news anymore that Hyundai, along with its sister brand Kia, is on a roll globally. With every new model launch, both the companies are churning out success after success with amazing regularity. But, India has been missing all these high-voltage action since late 2008 when the i20 was launched. Not any more, as here comes the first of a spate of models planned by Hyundai.

With so much pre-launch hype surrounding the car, the all-new Verna ought to be the next most significant launch of Hyundai in India. With consistent top-sellers like i10, i20 and Santro in the hatchback segment doing wonders for the brand, the mid-size sedan segment is the next natural progression for the company to establish its dominance.

What you see here is the weapon that will launch their assault. The new Verna brings the highly-publicized and super-successful ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design theme of Hyundai to India. It’s these two magical words that have transformed the company’s models from being dull and sober to stunning and swanky. And the Verna is no exception - it looks absolutely smashing.

The Verna not only entices you with its looks, but also with its wide range of powertrain options. With engine capacities of 1.4L and 1.6L in both gasoline and diesel variants and the option of choosing from a 5 speed manual or 4 speed automatic in gasoline variants and a 6 speed manual or 4 speed automatic in diesel variants, the car has a huge customer base covered.

Just like the i20 and i10 face-lift, Hyundai has loaded the Verna to the brim with a few segment-first features like reverse parking sensors with display in the rear-view mirror and six airbags, along with a host of other comfort and safety features. Priced between 6.99 and 10.75 Lacs, the car is sure to stir the segment and shake-up the leaders. Watch out Vento and City!
