Hyundai Motor India finally launched the much-awaited new-generation Verna with an introductory price starting from 10.90 lakh (ex-showroom). The sixth generation Hyundai Verna is longer, more spacious and gets a radical new design language. It’s also fitted to the brim with segment-leading features while sporting powerful petrol engine options. The diesel versions have now been discontinued.

Hyundai is confident with the 2023 Verna to be super successful right from the start. With over 8,000 pre-bookings and a competitive starting price, the model already seems to be on the right track. However, with offerings like the Honda City facelift, Volkswagen Virtus, Skoda Slavia and the trusty Maruti Suzuki Ciaz in the segment, how does the 2023 Hyundai Verna’s pricing fare against the resurgent competition? Let’s take a look.

The Honda City facelift arrived just weeks prior and with significant updates to keep it fresh and accessible to customers. While the 2023 Hyundai Verna undercuts the City in pricing by a good 59,000, the City gets a more affordable top-end variant at 15.97 lakh, when compared to the Verna’s 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol version priced at 16.19 lakh. However, the new-gen Verna’s turbo petrol variants get more accessible priced between 14.83 lakh and 17.38 lakh, when compared to the City e-HEV hybrid that tops out at 20.39 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom).

2023 Hyundai Verna vs Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is the oldest offering in this segment and is yet to get a major upgrade, unlike its competition. This does favour the Ciaz when it comes to pricing making it substantially more accessible. With a starting price of 9.19 lakh, the model is a good 1.71 lakh more affordable than the base Hyundai Verna. It also tops out at 12.18 lakh for the Alpha 1.5 automatic trim, which is only marginally more expensive than the Verna 1.5 NA petrol S manual trim. That said, the Ciaz has aged and lacks the goodies that are now found in the newer rivals.
