The sedan will continue with the Verna nameplate in India and has been spruced up to better compete in this aggressive segment. Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2 design language will feature prominently on the new sedan, with the Verna taking after its larger sibling, the Elantra, in terms of styling.
The 1.6 L Gamma petrol and 1.6 L U2 CRDi diesel engines have been carried over from the outgoing model. They have a maximum power output of 123 PS and 128 PS respectively. Exact torque figures have not been revealed. Both engines will be offered with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission options. As expected, Hyundai has ditched the older Verna’s 4-speed AT.
There is a significant improvement in the way it handles at high speed too and that shows the effort Hyundai engineers have put in to improve on every possible area reported by the consumers. You might have noticed that there are no detailed images of the new Verna in the post.
Unlike before, there’s no full-spec diesel automatic trim, the Auto SX+ will offer more goodies than the SX trim, but surely not as much as the SX(O). The petrol, on the other hand, is now available in the range-topping SX(O) trim, which was not the case with the previous model.
