New small car should be out by Jul-Aug. Approx price pt is 2.5 lakhs. Also it has VTVT, basically a cylinder less than the Kappa.
Though the launch dates that you have mentioned for RB Verna and the new Small Car (HA) seems to be close, I am damn sure that VTVT would not come in Hyundai's new small car. Its because that engine is based on the older Epsilon platform of the Santro and incorporating VTVT technology in such a old engine platform will push the cost factor up.

I've decided to buy a cheap used car, then I can wait till the end of 2011 to buy this car. Tired of all the rumors and obviously there cant be any source which can be definite about the launch date. But since i'm interested and also need a 4 wheeler, decided to buy a used one for now and wait till it gets launched.

I guess its worth to wait without putting any money on the used car till mid of April 2011. Sidindica has mentioned in couple of places about possible launch dates & I pray that to happen

I know man, I hope it gets launched in March or April, so will wait for a while at least till mid March there should be something information will be available. But since the recent verna was changed somewhere in June or July 2010 then the new verna will surely be launched on or after June/July. Thats my guess, but I want to be wrong on this one

Awesome, Sid! RB looks a killer in Grey. I particularly like the aggressive front design.

Eddy - I noticed your comment in another thread about the handling of the car and that you heard it to be much improved. Can you provide little more details on this comment? I hope the steering feel has been improved along with it too.

Wish they did so Bala80. Not a hint of bodyroll in the pcitured where VRB's shown drifting in the snow, So hopefully it has been addressed (Unless the pic was PS'ed):

Bala: All I know is that Hyundai is aware of the handling issues in the current Verna, and have made an effort to correct that in the upcoming version. No details yet.

just got the Autocar magazine , it says that the new Verna will be launched in April but it does not say that wether the car will have 6 airbags or sunroof!!
Someone please confirm if these features will be available or not

Have seen it multiple times from all the angles in the pics here and the more I see it the more I don't like it. It looks like an I20 with a boot. I20 looks great but this just doesn't. Of course it's a lot better than the current Verna but then that's not much to tell about.

IMO as far as looks go in this segment it's Linea -> City -> present Fiesta -> new Verna --------------------------> present Verna.

On the other hand if they launch it with a GDI, who cares about looks!

(Mods: I hope that extra '-' don't get me an infringement. Just making a point with those extra '-')

You're being kind - one of the frontal close ups posted by Sid reminded me of the "new" i10!

Truely The hexogonal front bumper is giving i10 feeling. IRVM view might deceive/confuse to cognize as i10

However side and rear profile looks good. Over all Interior is fine. Hope they launch diesel AT at cometitive pricing.
