The company attributed the sales momentum to the positive response received by the newly launched models such as Ioniq 5, Tucson, Grand i10 Nios and Aura. Additionally, the Creta has also been building on its legacy and it recently registered sales of 8.3 lakh units since inception. “The overall sales numbers are showing a positive trend across segments and we are delighted to witness the trust of our beloved customers for Hyundai cars in India,” said Tarun Garg, Chief Operating Officer, Hyundai Motor India.

In a separate development, Hyundai is gearing up to launch the new generation Verna in the country this month. The compact sedan, which rivals the likes of Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, Volkswagen Virtus and Skoda Slavia, will officially hit the roads on March 21. In its new avatar, the new Hyundai Verna will be offered with several changes. Leaked images on social media suggest the design of the Verna has been tweaked heavily. Hyundai had earlier teased the upcoming sedan with new set of headlights, DRL and taillight unit.

The new Hyundai Verna will be offered in four variants, and will be powered by a 1.5 Turbo GDi Petrol engine, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated unit that is currently available on several Hyundai vehicles will be carried forward. It produces 113 bhp and 144 Nm. Hyundai is also expected to add ADAS functionality in Verna besides other new features.
