The new 2017 Hyundai Verna today finally went on sale in India at an introductory price of ₹ 7.99 lakh to ₹ 12.61 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). These prices are applicable only for the first 20,000 customers and post that mark the company will increase the price of the car. Hyundai had shown the first-ever glimpse of the new-gen Verna in September 2016, exactly a year ago. The all-new Verna takes its design inspiration from its elder sibling, the Elantra and gets a long list of features and equipment update. As is evident, the biggest change is the front end, which now gets a single-piece hexagonal grille along with newly designed headlamps that have projector headlamps within. The bumper too is re-designed and is embedded with fog lamps in chrome housing.
