Hyundai India have finally launched the Verna saloon in a spectacular show in New Delhi today. With prices of the Verna starting at Rs 6.99 lakh for the base petrol version, going all the way up to Rs 10.74 lakh for the 1.6 diesel automatic, the Verna will now straddle the whole range from Rs 7 to 11 lakh. Here are the prices of all the variants as under:

The prices of the Verna are INTRODUCTORY and you can expect the prices to change in the near future. Hyundai India hope to sell 45,000 units of the Verna in the first 12 months, taking the average number of cars sold per month to over 3700 cars per month. That is the kind of number Volkswagen registers for the Vento and Maruti Suzuki for the SX4.
To shake the applecart in the C-segment Hyundai have gone with two petrol and two diesel versions. The basic petrol and diesel are 1.4-litre motors that are found on the i20, while the 1.6-litre motors are all-new and aren't found on any other Hyundai family cars sold in India.
The basic petrol motor is a 1396cc unit that produces 106 bhp@6300 rpm, while the 1.4-litre diesel displaces 1396cc as well but produces 89 bhp@4000 rpm and 22.4 kgm of peak torque@1750-2750 rpm.
The 1.6-litre motors are even more powerful. The petrol engine displaces 1591cc and produces 122 bhp@6300 rpm and an impressive 15.9 kgm of peak torque at 4200 rpm. The gem here, however is the diesel mill. From its 1582cc displacement, it produces 127 bhp@4000 rpm and an equally class-leading 265 kgm@1900 rpm.
Both the 1.6-litre engines come with automatic options. The transmission on both of these is a 4-speed automatic.
