2020 Hyundai Verna has been launched in India with prices starting at Rs 9.31 Lakhs. The top-end diesel-AT variant goes up to Rs 15 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
Hyundai Verna gets a facelift upgrade, nearly three years after the new generation sedan was launched in India. The overall styling remains similar to the pre-facelift version with some tweaks done to the bumpers, alloy wheels and headlamp design.
This upgrade has made the 2020 Hyundai Verna even more value for money product. It still remains the most feature-rich sedan in the segment carrying a couple of segment-first features as well. However, there is a specific variant which seems to be the best value for money.
The SX variant of 2020 Hyundai Verna Diesel is our choice for the best value for money diesel variant right now. It gets most of the features that come on the top-end variant just missing out on a couple of safety tech. Also, it is cheaper than its next variant by nearly Rs 2 Lakhs.
