no prob gto,ur welcome- i love the instrument cluster too. Man the engine is gonna rock!
and floyd i totally agree the front looks like the fiat grande punto, even the back is a lil like a jag and interior space is mindblowing. i was taken aback and the front seat goes so far back that it could fit a 6'5" guy in comfort. pretty impressive!

Default Price

Is the price of the Verna at 815000 Ex Showroom justified considering that they are not giving ABS TCS or Airbags and not even a CD player? Why not buy the Elantra CRdi (D) it is 1 level higher in prestige?

Why not Corolla Executive at that price?

Every thing appear good for this car except the Front. It is very ordinary and reminds me of Baleno.

I also saw a similarity to the Baleno's front (only in side profile), in the advt, with the horses.
The days of the sleek and sexy, low slung cars seem to be over. I am sure the Verna will fit in beautifully with the similarly shaped NHC, Fiesta, Aveo etc.

Does anyone know the confirmed prices for CRDI version?

I see someone mentioned 8.15 L ex-showroom - Hyundai might be shooting themselves in the leg with that pricing :(

Yeah, 8.15 ex-showroom would be like close to 9L on road. Too high, IMO.
BTW, is the FiestaD a CRDi engine ? Is TDCi some flavour of CRDi like DICOR ?

After letting some of my intution to run free, I think the engine in Verna will be detuned for India to deliver 100 bhp.

Saying this as the catchline in their advt. suggests, driving 100 horses.

Ya TDCI is also from the same stable of common rail desiel but it uses third generation peuzot injectors while other crdi engines use 2nd generation. Dunno about verna though, i just know that they are introducing variable valve timing (VVT) technology in Verna petrol

Any idea what is the ex-showroom price for verna in Hyderabad? If its 8.15 Lakhs then it works out to Rs.9,16,875 ( On road price here in Hyd is 12.5% of ex-showroom)

Tats a lot, I just decided to buy viva crdi and made the down payment, i couldnt have stretched my budget to that much

Nice. Equipment levels are a tad disappointing, if the lack of ABS/Airbags are anything to go by. Hope the car's dynamics make up for that. And if it is more F.E than the Accent CRDi, then it's game on.

BTW, did anyone notice the engine packaging in those pics? Really neat, and very tidy. Heck, even the battery is insulated...!

According to the presentation ABS and all the other things will be optional. So that will again push up the already high price tag much higher..

I think TDci is also a common rail technology,but when you compare the accent crdi engine with fiesta tdci engine,fiesta scores on refinement and fuel efficiency ,but power ,yumm,that surely is accent crdi's forte.and I cant wait to drive the verna crdi !!!.God help Fiesta TDci (for people who love TORQUE)

Well, the major difference is Verna is Diesel at that price and Corolla is petrol. ABS and airbags may be put as optional.

And therein lies a tale - I'm afraid these buggers will get caught up in their own hype and overprice the car.
