It's a tight spot they've put themselves in with the pricing...they can't sell 2 1.6 litre engines (DOHC Accent too) within a lakh or so of each other, so the petrol can't be too cheap. And thus neither can the diesel. But they can't be expensive either, or who's going to buy the Elantra? Which, I may add, is riding a HUGE popularity wave with the price cuts et al.

Some of things we can see include the fact that the petrol and diesel variants don’t have much difference on the power output front. The diesel actually is higher. Probably makes sense as the car is higher on price too.

Also as some of us rightly pointed out te price differential in segments seems to be blurring basis packaging and trim available on different models.

Hyundai has always played safe on the pricing front, but with the disasters of Elantra and Sonata Embera, I'm not so sure anymore. Nevertheless, they cannot afford to lose out with the Verna, as the company is dying to repeat success after the Accent and Santro.

On-road prices between 8.0-8.5 for the fully loaded diesel (having ABS, climate control and airbags, like the petrol variant) should be just about right. Below the Elantra, above the Accent Crdi. Else, Hyundai is playing a dangerous gamble.

BTW, is the FiestaD a CRDi engine ? Is TDCi some flavour of CRDi like DICOR ?
TDCi - Turbocharged Direct Common-rail injection, its all the same - crdi, crde, dicor & tdci.........but TDCi has 3rd generation injectors compared to accent crdi....the price will be around 8L for sure for the verna crdi without ABS,etc

The price of the top end Petrol Verna should be about Rs.720000 ex showroom Jaipur. This is with ABS Airbag etc. I think.

I dont know how they will justify these, as the Corolla is available for about 930000 - 935000 net ex showroom and the Executive for 885000 ex showroom. The executive is expected to cost lesser in the following months. H1 is with ABS Airbag Alloy CD & Cassette player etc.

@ KaranBajaj, dude, thanks for the pics, great clicks!

@ V1p3r: Except for the Rear seat handrest drink holder, nothing looks tucsonish.


For around 9lk onroad for the Verna, even more better for ppl to as well go for the Elantra! jus too pricey, IMHO. Hyundai getting this wrong, all wrong! now i see they continuing the old accent and putting in the newer version as the VERNA here.

sounds familiar...laura/octavia!

i was just comparing the equipment levels in the verna crdi and its really disappointing. i mean i can understand if the cut out the big things like climate control and alloy wheels which would make the price soar even higher but not providing seat back pockets, power mirrors, driver side height adjuster, music system, speakers, remote locking, adjustable rear headrests and height adjust. front seatbelts etc is shameful. and if the car is priced arnd 9 lak its daylight robbery. hope the engine lives up to the hype else its a terrible deal anyone can get.

by the way the verna crdi is compared to the fiesta tdci 1.4exi which is the cheapest model in fiesta. the standard diesel(the one they started off with) was the 1.4zxi tdci which has more stuff than the verna crdi and is surely gonna be cheaper too. so its only the engine in the verna which is to look forward to!

Thumbs down Wierd company policies

@Karan.

Spot on dude. I too was very disappointed looking at the crdi spec list
and I feel that companies if they have to(to reduce pricing) remove only those features which can be had as optional extras by a customer.

Removing features like height adjustable seats, seatbelts, head rests is just plain stupid.

Regards removing the airbags option.. lets not even go there.. But its so bad that companies dont even bother to provide them for customers who are willing to pay extra for their safety.

I was really expecting to the verna crdi to rock. I guess it still will cause of the monster engine it has. But the spec list has jst been a huge dampner for me
