In 2011, the Hyundai Verna Fluidic was the car that took the mid-size sedan segment by storm with its exhaustive list of variants and a feature list that was hard to ignore. Coupled with a decent pricing, the car went to become the best selling C-segment sedan by displacing the Honda City, and has been clocking class leading numbers ever since. But the competition has been heating up fast and with the new Honda City and Linea Facelift coming in, Hyundai has decided to give the Verna variants a major overhaul.
Here is what Hyundai is offering now:
- 1.4 EX,1.6 EX AT and 1.6 SX (O) AT (VTVT) have been discontinued
- 1.6 SX AT has been added to the lineup
- 1.6 SX (O) now comes with side and curtain airbags and speed-sensing auto-door locks.
- 1.6 SX gets rid of Supervision Cluster and Rheostat.
- 1.6 EX gets everything that the 1.4 CX has but misses out on diamond-cut alloy wheels and power-folding ORVMs.
- Driver Airbag
- Rear disc brakes
- Steering mounted controls
- Automatic Temperature control
- Rear-view camera with Electrochromic Mirror and rear parking sensors
- Power folding ORVMs and Diamond-cut alloys are the latest additions to the package
- The iPod cable gets deleted
- The CX variant will be replacing the Verna EX variant
The Verna SX variants now get an automatic gearbox as well. The new lineup will start hitting the showrooms in the coming few days and an official announcement from Hyundai is expected to come out soon as well. Hyundai is feeling the heat of the 4th generation Honda City, which has been eating up a decent share of the Verna’s sales.
The Hyundai Verna CX 1.4 Petrol is priced at 8.07 lakh rupees while the 1.4 liter diesel powered CX variant is priced at 9.28 lakh rupees, both prices reflecting ex-showroom Delhi figure.
