Hyundai Verna receives accolades from the industry

The year couldn’t have begun in a better note for Hyundai Verna, which has been bagging several auto awards of late – the ‘Car of the Year 2007’ at the 8th Overdrive Awards 2007, the ‘Best Mid-size Car of the Year’ at the NDTV Profit CNB-AAA Awards 2007, and the ‘Best Value for Money Car’ at the CNBC Autocar Auto Awards.

Hyundai Verna was adjudged the ‘Best Value for Money Car’ despite there being heavy weight contenders like the Honda Civic. The objective of this Award was to judge the latest and hottest car in India that offers the best value for money and satisfies all customers’ needs. The other nominees for the ‘Best Mid-size Car of the Year’ included Chevrolet Aveo and Chevrolet SRV. The top three contenders for the ‘Overdrive Car of the Year Award’ included Honda Civic and Chevrolet Aveo and U-VA, besides Hyundai Verna.

The CNBC-TV18 Autocar Awards, NDTV Profit Car and Bike Awards, and the Overdrive Awards are the most prestigious awards in the automobile sector in India. An annual feature, the auto awards are judged by an elite panel of judges comprising acknowledged experts from within the racing fraternity and senior members of the industry, as well as knowledgeable auto enthusiasts from CII, ACMA and SIAM.

Reacting to the good show at various awards functions, Hyundai’s H S Leem said, “We are absolutely delighted that Hyundai Verna has secured this prestigious accolade as ‘Car of the Year’ and ‘Best Value for Money Car’, especially against such worthy competitors and in a year that has seen a record number of eligible contenders.”
