    Ahead of its global debut on March 21, Hyundai has revealed a few more features of the next-gen Verna. Hyundai’s midsize sedan is expected to go on sale later this month and deliveries are likely to start by mid-April. 

    1. New Verna to get 8-speaker Bose sound system
    2. HVAC touch panel switchable with infotainment controls
    3. Two petrol engines on offer, no diesel

    New Hyundai Verna: infotainment and features

    The new Verna will sport an integrated, dual-screen set-up, similar to the one seen on the Ioniq 5, with two 10.25-inch screens – one for the infotainment system and the other for the digital instrument cluster – while the outgoing Verna features an 8-inch touchscreen. The next-gen Verna will also get an 8-speaker system tuned by Bose, like all other Hyundai and Kia models, and replace the Arkamys sound module.

    Furthermore, the new Verna also gets segment-first features like a switchable unit for controlling the infotainment system and HVAC, and heated seats. In the former, a touch panel houses both controls, which changes its interface and controls at the touch of a button. The upcoming Verna will continue to get ventilated front seats.

    Earlier this month, Hyundai teased some more features of the new Verna such as a unique phone holder for the front passenger, multi-purpose console and a cooled glove box. It will also get a dual-tone black and beige interior, with higher variants expected to get a leatherette interior.

    New Hyundai Verna: dimensions

    The new Hyundai Verna will measure 4,535mm in length, 1,765mm in width and 1,475mm in height, making it longer and wider than the outgoing model, although its height remains the same. It will also have a 528-litre boot, which is 50 litres more than its predecessor. 

    New Hyundai Verna: powertrains

    Hyundai will offer two 1.5-litre petrol engines with the new Verna – a 115hp naturally aspirated (NA) unit and a 160hp turbocharged unit. The former will be available with lower variants, while the latter will be reserved for higher variants. While both engines will be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, the NA unit will get a CVT and the turbo-petrol will get a DCT as an option.

    New Hyundai Verna: variants and rivals

    The next-gen Verna will be offered in four trims – EX, S, SX and SX (O). Expect it to be priced roughly Rs 60,000-1 lakh more than the current model, depending on the variant. Once launched, it will rival the facelifted Honda City, Volkswagen Virtus, Skoda Slavia and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

    Poll of the month

    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?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
