Ever since the Hyundai Verna has been launched in our market, people are flocking to it like anything. It is a testament to the image it has created over the years.
A potential Mahindra Scorpio N buyer cancels the booking and buys the new Hyundai Verna instead. Scorpio N is a mighty popular SUV that commands a huge waiting period. The N represents the new-age and modern version of the veteran Scorpio that has been selling well for years. Similarly, the latest-gen Verna is a representative of the established and mega-successful moniker that has been selling well since its inception in 2006.

Scorpio N Buyer Cancels Booking to Buy Verna
The video has been uploaded by Her Garage on YouTube. The YouTuber interacts with the owner of the Verna. She showcases the Verna in black color purchased by the owner in the SX trim for Rs 15.50 lakh on-road. When asked why he chose this over an SUV, the owner mentioned that he had already booked the Scorpio N Z6 trim. However, the waiting period for the Scorpio N is around 6-7 months. He also checked out the Thar, which had a similar issue. The Verna was available relatively sooner, which is why he went for it.

He considers the SX trim the most value-for-money as it sits below the fully-loaded top trim. That is generally the case with all vehicles. He mentions that his family also owns a Mahindra XUV700 that has ADAS which is barely used. Hence, he found all the features he needed in this trim itself. Additionally, he had already purchased a custom numberplate for Rs 30,000 and it would have become invalid if he didn’t buy a car within 3 months. That was another reason why he opted for the Verna.
