Hyundai's all-new Verna prices will be out soon. The company will have six trims each of the petrol and diesel, in manual as well as automatic guise. We expect the prices to start from Rs 7 lakh and go all the way to Rs 11 lakh. The new Verna is based on the same Elantra platform and is said to be better to drive. The engines are the same old ones from the previous-gen vehicle but have been tuned to deliver more efficiency. The Verna squares off against the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City and Skoda Rapid. While we will have the drive as well as launch story up soon, you can also watch how things unfold in a press conference right here.
