Yes to an extent but dont you think increasing the pecific power output of an engine needs extra reinforcments to a considerable level to withstand higher power / pressure ?

Though I had been a Hyundai hater for a long time, my perception of them changed when I was taken for a drive on an Elantra. Hyundai surely had gone a long way... and the Verna is again one step forward in the right direction, provided they get the pricing right (an why wouldn't they...).

The CRDi would be a threat to Fiesta mainly but I don't think the NHC has anything to fear of the Petrol version yet... looking at the specs on paper.

I have been persuading my uncle to wait for the verna for more than a month now... had gone all out to cancel his booking for the Fiesta just for this... I hope it lives up to the expectations.

I was looking at the Embera India website and that too doesn't have any V6 option.
Hyundai had already introduced the V6 engine with the older Sonata but there weren't many takers. Doubt if they would rush with the V6 Embera anytime soon.... Gas guzzlers are not particularly popular in our country yet...

max; the Indian one is detuned and the petrol car is sold as 110bhp one outside India as hence the car was designed with the extra power/reinforcement etc you talked abt.

" Accent - For the budget conscious customer.
Verna - For the customers, who choose to opt for more power, style and premiumness.
"

thats a quote frm the ppt

First drive report on the verna crdi.it was too powerful better than accent crdi and the elantra crdi.nice thoughts to the ac controls.spot on stearing response.Unlike the accent the power delivery is smooth.hyundai says its going to deliver more mileage than accent.its going to be real tough for city, and a fight for the ford fiesta. as aveo is almost out of this world verna is going to be a hot seller.definitely leagues ahead of accent.

The new Accent looks completely different, has brand new mechanicals, upgraded engines and comes with the same promise of offering outstanding value at the thick end of the mid-size segment.
The boot is quite compact and stubby, and this gives the verna somewhat hatchback-like proportions. A nice, sporty touch is a spoiler thatís neatly integrated into the boot lid.
The price tag I got to know is around 6 to 7 lakhs

As per jessie007 with his powerpoint presentation received, seems like the pricing and the way this car is launched Honda is going to be serious effected with it city sales.
The deasel version is meaty but very expensive. Hope to get something with the same kinda specification in a price range of 6-7. That would be too good.

Well there is going to be some serious competition between Ford, Honda and Hyundai. I guess this will benefit the consumers by those price cuts which happens when the competition intensifies.

It makes for quite a change and gives the impression of spacious interiors.

Personally, I am 'so over black' and hundreds of shades of gray. Give me beige anyday!

Hello Folks,

I have some pics of the Verna to post. I don't know how to post them. Appreciate if someone send me the instructions.The Diesel is really refined. I didn't even realise that the engine had started. Looks like a killer. The rear row passenger can smile now as someone as tall as 6' could sit comfortably.

And I drove the car only in parking lot and the gears were very precise.

Great product. Only hope HMIL prices it right..

Cheers

From the Verna pics and spec I've came across on web, I feel it to be really good contender against Honda City and Ford Fiesta. Probably Hyundai will price it along with or a notch below City and would make an attractive proposition. Looks Indian buyers are having a good time going forward.
