Along with this update, Hyundai has also discontinued the base E and EX variants powered by the 1.6-litre petrol engine to prevent price and feature overlap with the new variants. The Hyundai Verna is now available in a total of 12 variants with prices ranging from Rs 7.80 lakh for the 1.4-litre petrol MT to Rs 12.88 lakh for the 1.6-litre diesel AT.

When launched back in August 2017, the Verna was exclusively offered with 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. However, changes in the Government’s rules regarding car classification based on engine sizes meant that the Verna was ended up as a ‘luxury car’. The eventual hike in GST cess on luxury cars also added to its price, making it one of the more expensive cars in its category.
