The C-segment sedans are all set to see some action very soon as the new generation Hyundai Verna launch date has been fixed as 22nd August 2017. While dealers were accepting bookings since last month, the new-generation Verna pre-bookings have already commenced.
The new-generation Verna can be booked for an amount of Rs.25,000. The all-new sedan will be a big step-up from the current generation version, with more features, more power and better driving dynamics as well. The car will be competing against some highly established offerings including the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Honda City. Hyundai will also be looking for redemption in this segment, having been leading the sales figures for a couple of years in the past. Under the new metal work, the new generation Hyundai Verna is underpinned by the all-new ‘K2’ platform.
Hyundai India says the new platform offers better handling than the outgoing version. There will also be a host of new features on the car including LED daytime running lights with projector lens headlamps, LED tail lights, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Dual airbags will be standard on trims with the top variants to get more than two airbags, while there will also be ventilated front seats.
