Octavia 1.9tdi with 88.5 bhp would also be in the firing line.

Which brings about a question whether Hyundai would price the verna around the the Fiesta 1.4TDCi range.I doubt so,at least the crdi version.

My personal opinion is that the verna ex-showroom prices would be around 8.5-9.5 lakh rupees atleast so maybe the fiesta due to its lower pricing may have a lifeline.The skoda octavia diesel may actually be the verna crdi's biggest rival.

The dealer clearly mentioned it will be below 7.5L(ex showroom).
As for 9 lakh, the elantra crdi costs less than 9L ex showroom after discounts.

7.5 L looks like a great price. I wouldnt be too disappointed if its upto 8 L. Anything more would make them miss the mark of chasing Ford and Honda.

Besides they will hurt the Elantra territory if they do so. As for competing with higher Diesels like Octavia - i guess this is what Hyundai would like to do with the new Elantra.

Elantra & Sonata should now graduate to 6-cylinder engines for both diesel & Petrol versions.

I was talking about ex showroom prices in delhi.
Delhi/Noida has cheaper cars.
Also the discount they tell you the first time is significantly less than what they are willing to give when you are a customer.
I think a member from kerala got his for 9.xx on road.

Wink super review

Thanks for the super first review of verna, i was waiting for it with bated breath

I saw in literature somewhere that its gonna be 110 horses, how can they change that aspect within a few months of advertising?????

JKdas, you said 10.xxx price of verna crdi???? is it confirmed? if yes, then its too expensive and hyundai may not notch up higher number of sales for that pricing

7.5 Lakhs-8 Lakhs ex.showroom would be the most ideal pricing so it doesnt compete with someone from its own stable ( read...elantra)

And,

Buyers dont mind paying a few extra thousands for a brand new car and a newer technology ( or upgraded technology with extra boost)....and this will be effectively competing with ford tdci higher end models like SXI & ZXI.....exi is always there for no frills customer....

What do you think guys?????

Sales tax in dilli and haryana much lower than in other states.

Southern states are probably the highest sales tax. Pondicherry might be an exception.

I have a gut feeling that Hyundai is gonna take the average of the prices of Hyundi Accent CRDi & Elantra CRDi for the Verna CRDi.
