I dont think it is in May, I think it will be in July or after July. When I talked to the Hyundai Sales Rep in Sanjay Hyundai Pune he said this will be in mid 2011 i.e. after June

Sounds like top end variant will cost more than 12L OTR if these features are included.
I just want the stripped down variant with only the safety and basic features.
Unfortunately no-one provides this.

The new verna looks awesome... lightyears ahead than the previous facelift version which was a HUGE flop.! I casually asked our hyundai guy about this one, while i was enquiring about i20 booking and delivery details, and he said that this new version would completely replace the current one, and wont be sold side by side..!! There'd be a petrol base version satrting 7lakhs i guess...!!

I was expecting a serious war between the new verna and the new fiesta, but ford i guess has better plans for International fiesta which'd hit the Honda city segment...!!

Honda City v\s Sx4 v\s new fiesta...!!



Are they planning to launch a new version of our previous indian accent??

Reconfirmed from Sanjay Hyundai Pune again. This time it was some senior guy and he said nothing for another 6 to 8 months. Well since they recently launched the Verna i believe 2-3 months back. I dont think they will be launching this vehicle for another 8 to 10 months. Another possibility is that they might call this vehicle something else and will launch it earlier say April -May with a ridiculous high price.

The transform was launched in june 2010 and the new Verna will come DEFINITELY before may. Words straight from the horses mouth.
And of course, I can understand dealers misleading customers to sell off the current stocks. And in Delhi, we have all the top honchos of Hyundai present.
And yes, the transform will be sent to graveyard.

I can vouch for this type of dealer attitude ... 1 week before T-Jet's launch a FIAT dealer was telling me that he does not have any news on T-Jet and it will launch somewhere in 2011

Dealers lying is not a new thing, and in fact they do end up fooling or misinforming people all the time. I have had a similar experience with the launch of the ANHC when Southend Honda in Delhi refused to acknowledge the release of the ANHC (1 month before the launch) and when i proved to the salesman that it was indeed true, he came up with a smart one stating that both the ANHC and NHC would coexist.

Honestly I would like to be wrong and sid, parth and nik to be right. Reason - I've been waiting for this vehicle for a while now. Lets hope this gets launched soon

So what youre confirming is that unlike the i20, the RB top-end wont offer the option of 6 airbags?

Thank god. It won in the 'ugliest car in India' award in given by Mr Abhishek Chandhock (me)
It typifies what the South Korean designs of yesteryears (with Hyundai new found design language) used to stand for. Weirdness and quirkiness!
