The Rider trim has been very strategically placed as one of the most affordable sedans against the rivals such as the Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento, and the new Honda City. It comes kitted with a decent list of equipment and features which include automatic climate control, rear aircon vents, electrically operated ORVMs, telescopic adjustable steering wheel, all four power windows, and rear parking sensors.

Moreover, the firm has also made the Rider Plus variant slightly costlier by 20,000. The car now starts at 8.19 lakh (ex-showroom) for the manual transmission and 9.69 lakh (ex-showroom) for the automatic variant. The rest Ambition and Onyx trims have also seen a price hike of up to 20,000.
