    New Hyundai Verna exterior

    The all-new Hyundai Verna is marginally bigger than its competitors with the length increasing to 4,535mm, giving it a segment-leading wheelbase of 2,670mm. For reference, the Volkswagen Virtus and Skoda Slavia have a wheelbase of 2,651mm, while the new Honda City's wheelbase is 2,600mm. The size increase also ensures that the Verna has the most boot space in the segment – 528 litres – and the segment-best width of 1,765mm, which will offer more shoulder room than its competitors.

    Like the Venue, the new Verna also features an LED light bar for the tail-lights.

    The Verna's launches have always been greatly anticipated ever since they introduced the distinct-looking Fluidic Verna in 2011, and this is no different. From the front and rear, the all-new Verna bears very little resemblance to its predecessor. Its long, swooping lines are EV-esque, and it has an LED set-up that spans almost the entire width of the car. For more information about the styling of the new Verna, click here.

    New Hyundai Verna interior 

    The new Hyundai Verna receives dual-tone beige-black interiors and soft-touch materials on the dashboard and door trims. The Verna also gets an ambient light strip with 64 colour options that runs across the dashboard and door trims. It also has the option to change the colour according to the driving mode that's selected.

    Turbo variants get interiors with red theme; NA variants get biege and black combo.

    The Verna features front AC vents that are integrated into the dashboard design with heated and ventilated front seats being segment-first. The centre console also houses climate control knobs that double up as infotainment controls. Some other features available are Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist Control, front parking sensors and an electrochromic mirror.

    Hyundai has fitted the all-new Verna with a brand new two-spoke steering wheel that has never made it to any Hyundai model previously. It houses multi-function buttons with haptic feedback. The driver's unit can display turn-by-turn navigation with the option to select from over 10 regional languages, apart from English and Korean.

    New Hyundai Verna features

    The new Hyundai Verna features a large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment, which offers Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Valet mode and over-the-air updates for the system. This unit also supports voice commands in Hindi and English for functions like switching on the AC, opening the sunroof, activating the ventilated seats and much more.

    Verna turbo-petrol gets a few additional features, including electronic parking brake.

    In terms of connected car tech, Hyundai is offering new Verna owners three years of free Bluelink subscription that includes auto crash notifications, SOS calls, stolen vehicle immobilisation, geo-fencing and even a monthly health report to name a few.

    New Hyundai Verna safety 

    The all-new Verna will come with 6 airbags, ABS and EBD as standard on all variants. However, only the top-end variant with the DCT gearbox gets all four disc brakes.

    The Hyundai Verna gets disc brakes on all four wheels, albeit only with the DCT variant.

    Just like the new Honda City, the Verna too is offering ADAS on some variants. It will have front and rear radar detectors along with a front camera, which is not offered by competitors. The ADAS supports the driver with features like Forward Collision Warning and Avoidance Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Lane-keep warning and blind spot assist warning, and a safe exit warning to make sure that you don't get run over when you get out of your car.

    New Hyundai Verna variants, engines, colours and mileage 

    The all-new Verna will be available in four trims – EX, S, SX and SX (O) – and seven colour options, namely Typhoon Silver, Fiery Red, Starry Night, Titan Grey, Abyss Black, Atlas White and Tellurian Brown.

    The all-new Hyundai Verna has two engines on offer – a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol. The NA petrol delivers 115hp and 144Nm and is offered with a 6-speed manual and an IVT automatic. Hyundai claims a fuel efficiency of 18.6kpl (MT) and 19.6kpl (IVT).

    The turbo-petrol engine churns out 160hp and 253Nm and gets a 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT gearbox with paddle shifters as options. While this engine is more powerful, Hyundai also claims that it will be more efficient than the naturally aspirated powertrains with fuel efficiency figures of 20kpl for the manual and 20.6kpl for the DCT. Hyundai is not offering a diesel engine with the Verna.

    The latter's power figures are class-leading when compared to the Virtus, Slavia and City. The turbo GDi also comes with two exclusive colour options – Atlas White with black roof and Fiery Red with black roof.

    The all-new Hyundai Verna will be produced at Hyundai’s Chennai plant and the carmaker also plans to export the sedan from here.

    New Hyundai Verna bookings, delivery details

    Hyundai has said that it has already received over 8,000 bookings, with 25 percent of them being for the turbo-petrol variants, while the naturally aspirated variants accounted for the rest. The automatic variants, on the other hand, constitute 40 percent of the total bookings. Hyundai says deliveries have begun, although there could be a two-month wait for the same. Hyundai is offering the Verna with a 3 year/unlimited km warranty.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?
