Hyundai is testing its new Verna on the India roads for some time now. From the spy pics it looks like the car is production ready and the launch seems to be very close.
Considering the luke warm response of the Verna Transform compared to its compititors, this could be a good move to take on the City and The Vento. Currently the Vento is almost closing with the Segment leader City and looks like it may surpass City sales.
Hyundai which is in the third position will have to also keep in mind the new Fiesta, which will hit the showroom s in a couple of months.
We expect some new hearts to power the new Verna.
Certainly pricing, safety features like Air bags (which is not available on the current Verna) and ABS will play a important role. We expect the prices to be in the range of Rs 6.75lakh to Rs 9.50lakh (ex-showroom).
The Verna will have petrol and diesel engine options and also a automatic version.
