Something is very wrong. I have, so far, seen only one Verna, in white color. To put it in perspective, I have seen more latest generation S-class on the road, than Verna.

I also see Fiestas daily. Where are the Vernas hiding? I know the car is bland and doesn't stand out, but being a "petrosexual" person I am always scanning the cars/bikes on the road, and I do not see any Vernas. Strange.

Strange - I spot at least 5-6 vernas everyday, in various colors from white to red to blue/black on my commute. Not to mention 3 of them in my small colony itself.

But of course, since Fiesta has been around for a year, I spot a lot more of them.

Hey all !!

I think you guys just worry about numbers without logically questioning yourselves.

AVEO comes only in Petrol hence thats the reason otherwise its reasonably selling ( around 1000 per month ).

In India only HONDA and MARUTIs are bought blindly.

To sum it up, someone rightly pointed that there arent any Verna Petrol on road and i havent seen any either too.

Cheers!!

Well, if you drive around Indira Nagar in Bangalore for 30 minutes (I have observed this more than a couple of times), one can definitely spot at least 5-6 Vernas. I have spotted both Petrol and Diesel versions.

Make a point to observe the front grill first and you will not miss it.

Initially there were few cars on the road, but I owe that to a probably longer waiting period.

Well recently I've started seeing a lot of new Verna's on the road and mostly they are CRDi's. Have only seen one Petrol car till now. Seems like they are really selling well now.

If you are keen on buying Verna, you will find many on the road. Else, very few. I could convince my family about Baleno, only this way.

For any new vehicle it takes time to become easily visible as initially the percentage of the new vehicle among the total car population will be less, this will increase as the nos gets added up.
