There is no denying that the Hyundai Verna, which is known as the Accent in most markets, has brought a lot of success to Hyundai Motors India Ltd in the upper C segment of our car market. The latest gen Verna is not just more successful than the last gen model but has also been successful in keeping competitors such as the City, Vento and Rapid at bay.
However, Hyundai realizes that with the ever increasing competition and age fast catching up to Verna, the sales of its C Segment warrior could face some serious threats in near future. Hence, the automaker would soon give a minor facelift to revitalize its Korean soldier.
According to Autocar, the refreshed Verna will get:
- Back-lit power windows buttons
- Back-lit steering mounted audio controls
- Restyled alloy wheels for high end varianta
- LED DRLs
It is also being said that the Verna would get a price cut. The price cut would be a result of some cost cutting measures such as:
- Omitting the middle-row headrest from the rear seat
- The spare wheel for models with alloy-wheels will be a steel unit
The updated Verna would be launched only after the launch of the Grand i10, which is slated to happen early next month. We expect the Verna facelift to be launched at the advent of festive season, one of the most profitable periods for car makers in India.
It would be interesting to see if these minor updates would enable the Verna to continue its dominance on immediate rivals on the sales charts.
