Hyundai Verna facelift launched in Russia, high time in India?
Hundai Motor Russia has laucnhed facelifted Solaris in Russia. Also known as Hyundai Verna in India, the C segment sedan gets ritualistic mods to front and rear fascia, for a narrow price hike. Popular in Russia as well, Hyundai sells Solaris in sedan and hatchback versions, in more volume compared to India.
Interiors are left undisturbed. Engine spec also remains same, with 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre gasoline engines, like we have here. There is however a change under the bonnet. A new 6 speed automatic transmission setup accompanies 1.6 litre petrol motor. Usual 5 speed manual gearbox is available for choice.
Hyundai India offers Verna sedan with 5 speed manual and 4 speed automatic transmission. Rest of ingredients are similar in models of both markets. Most sedans in Verna’s segment are upgraded to trend, like the Fiesta facelift, new generation Honda City, facelifted Fiat Linea and upcoming Nissan Sunny facelift. Its high time Hyundai adds charm to ageing Verna to keep up second to top in segment.
Price of Hyundai Solaris facelift ranges from 473,900 Rubles (Rs. 8.26 lakhs approx.) to 574,900 Rubles (Rs. 10.02 lakhs approx.).
