Hyundai is planning to launch a Verna Facelift next year. The present version of the Verna has been in the Indian market since 2011. The car used to be the biggest selling C segment sedan in India until the Honda City with a diesel engine was launched earlier this year. Since the Honda City’s launch, the Verna’s sales in India have dipped.
We expect to see the new Verna in Hyundai dealerships by January 2015. The car will be similar to the Hyundai Solaris that is sold in Russia. Solaris is the name that Hyundai has chosen for the Verna sold in Russia. The 1.4 liter and 1.6 liter diesel engines of the Verna should also get some improvements as the diesel Vernas sell much more than the petrol version in India. In Russia, Hyundai doesn’t sell the Verna with a diesel engine as petrol engines are more popular there.
