The new 2017 Hyundai Verna is just a day away from its official launch in India. Hyundai India will launch this car at an official event in New Delhi tomorrow. Those of you who have been regular to CarBlogIndia would know that we’ve already driven this car and told you in great details about the engine and other specifications of the new generation Verna. Now, in this post, we will share the official new 2017 Hyundai Verna mileage figures, which were leaked on to the web space a few hours earlier. The new gen Hyundai Verna 2017 delivers a peak mileage of 17.70 KMPL for the petrol and 24.75 KMPL for the Diesel engine variants. In India, the new Verna is expected to launch in a price range of Rs 9 lakh to Rs 14 lakh. It will rival the likes of Maruti Ciaz and Honda City. You can find links to comparisons of the new Verna with its main rivals below.
Like we have been saying, the new Hyundai Verna 2017 will go on sale with two engine options – 1.6-litre petrol and 1.6-litre Diesel. Both these engines will be mated to 6-speed Manual and Automatic transmissions. The new Verna offers many new features. Hyundai has been known to offer segment-best features on its cars and the 2017 model of the popular Korean C-segmenter is no different. The top-end model even offers ventilated seats that all you to cool your bottom during the rather unbearable summer season most of the country is known for.
New 2017 Hyundai Verna Mileage
|New Verna||Mileage (ARAI-tested)|
|Petrol Manual||17.70 KMPL|
|Petrol Automatic||15.92 KMPL|
|Diesel Manual||24.75 KMPL|
|Diesel Automatic||21.02 KMPL|
The manual transmission variant of the new car offers a mileage of 17.70 KMPL. The automatic petrol returns an average fuel economy of 15.92 KMPL. On the other hand, the Diesel models, as expected, as far more fuel efficient. The manual transmission variant of the 2017 Verna Diesel has a mileage of 24.75 KMPL. The automatic model offers 21.02 KMPL of peak mileage. There is quite a difference between the mileage figures of the Manual and Automatic transmissions. The new 2017 Hyundai Verna mileage is lower for automatic models as the new car gets a fuel-sapping torque converter automatic transmission.
New 2017 Hyundai Verna Price in India
|New Verna||Price (expected)|
|Base||Rs 9 Lakh|
|Top||Rs 14 Lakh|
While official prices won’t be out before tomorrow, we have a fair idea of what the new car will cost. There are good chances that the prices of the new model will start at Rs 9 lakh. The fully-loaded model could cost almost Rs 14 lakh. We are pretty sure that the new car will be costlier than the outgoing model. However, the increase in price will be justified through the modern exterior and interior look, more features, updated engines, and higher interior space. The new Verna is definitely more stylish than the City and the Ciaz. However, it will be interesting to see if the car is so good that it makes new car buyers ignore the very attractively priced Ciaz.
Bookings- You can book the new generation car at any authorized Hyundai India dealership across the country. Test drives of the new Verna can commence anytime now.
