Anyone knows how many years/kms of warranty is offered for the diesel engine?
And the service interval?

Petrol 1.4 & Diesel 1.4 price difference is 1.1 Lacs in ex showroom price. SO it will translate into almost 1.3-1.5 Lacs more in on road prices. Is it not too much? I guess Hyundai knows that people will buy Diesel more due to petrol prices, so they want to make more money in that by charging extra. The difference between petrol & diesel should be less IMO. What say guys?

Is that for Bangalore alone? How about other states?

Tumhare muh mein ghee shakkar! I really hope this info is correct, as my contact from FIAT showroom mentioned "1.6.MJD is at least a year away". (EDIT: By the way this info is almost a month older)

Same with me dude. I'm kind of desperate to own a car now, but it would definitely make more sense to wait for 1.6 Fiesta and Linea.

Extras in Vento are Steering wheel rake adjustment, rear AC vents, Passenger seat adjustment from rear and better driver seat height adjustment (?).

Overall, the prices of Verna and Vento look very much similar to me (with that 7K difference and a little more, once can get the parking sensors done and install a camera post-market in Vento).
Add virtually zero turbo lag, handling and ride quality to the Vento's list and then try comparing (of course we also need to add A.S.S. and no waiting period to the Verna's list)!

If I were in the market looking for a car in this segment, I would buy the Verna for its more appealing look (personal opinion),more powerful enginea and features. But if the Fiesta manages to undercut the Verna by 25k or more, i would definitely not think about the Verna as I can fit all those fancy features as after-market accessories, to my taste, but would never get Fiesta fun from the Verna

Hey xPK, you are still looking for a car? What happened to the Scorpio? Didn't the price of previous years model which was on sale worked for you ?
Or dropped the idea of Scropio totally?

I think the pricing for the Verna is par for the course, especially after seeing the OTR price for SX4 diesel in B'lore which works out to 11.1X Lakhs!!! We are now getting used to manufacturers trying to extract their extra pound of flesh from the consumer (read overpricing) so there is nothing to complain about. But I am not sure how much premium we should attach to that powerful diesel engine which is housed in a super market trolley chasis (exaggerating, I know). It will only make the driver nervous and passengers to throw up when even a slight curve is taken at high speeds (I have experienced in my erstwhile Petrol Elantra) which means in real world conditions it is good for cruising at 90-100 kph.

I for one am disappointed that the A/T version is only on the top end version why??, this makes the top end CRDI close to 12.75 in Karnataka . I was hoping Hyundai would offer the A/T on the lower end variants.

Now looking forward to the Fiesta and their pricing, hopefully will follow the Figo (aggressive)

Has Hyundai launched the website where we can see the detailed features and specs across the variants? And ofcourse, the city specific costs?

It's not clear if the following Vento HL features are available in Verna 1.6SX:
MID (average/instant mileage, temperature, speed limit, etc.), gear shift indicator and leather wrapped steering/gear knob/brake lever.

Overall, the prices of Verna and Vento look very much similar to me (with that 7K difference and a little more, once can get the parking sensors done and install a camera post-market in Vento).
Guess its all wheel disk brake with SX, whereas its only at 2 wheels with VENTO

A.S.S is going to be one key differentiator here.

As xPK pointed out delivery time frame could be an advantage with Hyudnai. Walked in to the hyundai local showroom & was told delivery can be made within 3 weeks .

Edit: I sat at rear seat of HV rB....poor thigh support. I like the looks of VW a lot than Verna. Somehow the rear looks like Gen-2 Honda City (NHC), which does not impress me a lot

Yup I'm still looking. I have not dropped Scorpio completely. But I guess you can pretty much say that. And about those stock clearance offers, there were only AT VLX 4x4 vehicles, where I was keen on manual 4x4.
Life isn't fair sometimes!

Could anyone lay hands on the brochure? Have been trying to search on Google but in vain. I am sure it is only here on TBHP I can get the brochure first, but when?
