Top 3 Popular Sedans Today in India

What Are They


Consumers’ tastes are always changing with the development of the era mostly because of the rapid change of everything, so does the sedan market in India. Today we select the top three popular sedan cars by various opinions from some sedan owners, they are Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and Honda City.

No. 1: Hyundai Verna (₹ 9.08-16.95 Lakhs)

The Hyundai Verna has been a competitor in India for a long time and it is proper to say that the Verna is one of the most popular sedans of Hyundai. All of its generations are famous for its comfort as well as a very good value for money. Hyundai offers the same 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines as before and makes some improvements for them. The new Verna is still a good-looking sedan and the outline is almost similar to the old generation. The front now gets the new family element that you can find in the Xcent and the Elantra, also, the bumper is more radical with the spoiler. Its projector headlamps are smaller than the predecessor and have LED DRL’s as well. On the side, the 5-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels make the car sportier and more modern. The combination of black and beige makes you feel premium in the cabin. However, the dashboard takes up too much space and the dash is covered with hard plastic, which should be replaced by something that can give you a soft touch. Its seats are impressively comfortable and the steering wheel feels good. It also offers 6 speakers with Smart Surround System by Arkamys and the result is really great. But the legroom at the rear is just average, which may not be convenient to a tall passenger. It’s worth mentioning that Verna has received a 5-star safety rating from ASEAN NCAP.
