Recommended Posts


Hyundai In an attempt to product & variant portfolio to maintain the customers interest into the product & a bit of feeling the heat from competition(New Honda City), Hyundai is intending to launch the recent mid-spec variant of Verna Diesel, termed as Verna CX based on its 1.4, 89PS, 220Nm CRDi engine propelled with 6-speed Manual gearbox. This variant will serve as top-end variant of its 1.4 Diesel engine range & mid-spec variant across the whole variant portfolio of Verna.

The CX is likely to be positioned between the EX and SX variants. The new diesel Verna will boast of features like;

-Electro-chromatic IRVM mirror,

-Rear parking camera with parking sensors,

-2 DIN audio with bluetooth and steering controls,

-Fully automatic temperature control,

-Electrically adjustable and foldable outside mirror with turn indicators,

-Anti-lock braking system and

-Driver-side airbag.

A quote from source article says,

When contacted, Hyundai Motor India's spokesperson said: "At Hyundai , we continuously improve the price-value equations by refreshing all our existing models to offer modern premium image." Verna has sold more than 2.37-lakh units since its introduction in 2006. The car took the leadership position in the mid-size sedan segment post the launch of the Fluidic Verna in 2011.

This was on the cards with Honda turning up the heat in the segment.

Features wise both cars are almost on par now, however, Honda commands a better brand recall and will be one of it's major plus point.

Still if it's diesel, I would choose Verna. For petrol, it's definitely City.

Definitely this new variant will give some breather to Hyundai Motors to compete with Honda City diesel. However, when it comes to diesel refinement and feature list...Verna is always ahead of City.

This space is heating up.

Have heard many insiders talking about the new feature list of the SX (O)

Illuminated power window switches

Safety escort headlamps

New diamond-cut 16 inches alloys

Projector headlamps

Lets see how many of these actually find way into the model.

The SX O with all these feature has been launched almost 2 months back (they removed 6 airbags sadly). I hope Hyundai finds customer for CX 1.4 because if its the same price as a EX 1.6 then no one will buy it. Almost 40 bhp difference between the two gems of engines is enough to offset any extra features in favour of 1.6 .
