Next-gen Hyundai Verna to debut on 21st March: Bookings open
Hyundai Motor India is working on the next generation of the Verna for the Indian market. Now, the South Korean manufacturer has announced that the 2023 Verna will be launching on 21st March. The bookings for the new sedan have already been opened and it can be reserved at Hyundai's official website or by visiting a dealership. The token amount is set to ₹25,000.
The demand for sedans has been increasing because of the popularity of SUVs. However, there is a chance that Verna might be able to find new buyers, especially with the new generation. The brand will be revamping the Verna significantly.
