Hyundai India has decided to increase prices of its entire product range up to Rs 9200 from August 1, 2019. One must note that the prices of Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV and Hyundai Kona Electric SUV will remain unchanged. The reason behind price hike is said to be the increased input costs and changes made to the models to make them comply with new safety regulations.
Just so you know, the new safety norms mandates several safety features including driver airbag, rear parking sensors, seat belt reminder for driver and co-driver and an over speed alert for the driver across all passenger vehicles. The new regulations have been enforced from 1st July, 2019.
Currently, Hyundai offers 11 models across different segments including Santro hatchback, Grand i10, Elite i20, Active i20 crossover, Xcent sedan, Elantra saloon, Venue subcompact SUV, Creta compact SUV, Kona Electric SUV and Tucson SUV. Recently, the carmaker introduced India’s first long-range electric car – Hyundai Kona.
Talking about Hyundai’s future plan, the South Korean carmaker is ready to launch the new-generation Hyundai Grand i10 on 20th August, 2019. The company’s best-selling mid-size sedan – Verna – will also receive a mid-life update sometime next year. Reports suggest that Hyundai might bring in the Genesis luxury car brand in the country.
