Hyundai has announced that the new Verna sedan has received a total 15,000 bookings since its launch in August this year. A few days ago, we had reported that the bookings were close to the 15,000-unit mark.
he Verna saw a price hike of around Rs 29,000 due to the revision in GST cess. However, the carmaker has stated that it will further increase the price once the bookings cross 20,000 units.
The new Verna is available with a 123hp, 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 128hp, 1.6-litre diesel mated to either a six-speed manual or auto transmission. Information gathered from dealers suggests customers in most major cities are opting for the auto variants with the diesel engine.
Hyundai is offering seven exterior paint shade options on the Verna, out of which silver, white and black are the most popular. Just like its predecessor, the new Verna faces stiff competition from the Honda City, the Maruti Ciaz, the Skoda Rapid and the Volkswagen Vento.
