Hyundai Verna Latest Updates
Hyundai's India-bound Verna facelift has made its official debut at the Chengdu Motor show in China.
At first glance, it sports various cosmetic changes and a radical design that matches up with earlier spy images. Cosmetic changes include a trapezoidal grille, larger headlamps, silver inserts, revised front and rear bumpers and two new sets of alloy wheels among others. Inside, the sedan gets blacked out interiors, a larger touchscreen infotainment system and an all-digital instrument cluster. It is also expected to get Hyundai’s Blue Link connectivity features.
Under the hood, the Verna is expected to get BS6-compliant 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines from the Kia Seltos in different states of tune. Aside from that the new 1.5-litre petrol mill could also get a 48V mil-hybrid trim.The facelift is also expected to be mated to a 6-speed manual with a CVT and a 6-speed torque converter option like the Seltos.
It is expected to launch in India either at the 2020 Auto Expo or before April 2020 when the BS6 norms kick in. It is expected to come with a price tag at a premium over its predecessor. Once launched, the Verna could rival the likes of theMaruti Ciaz, the recently updatedToyota Yaris, Skoda Rapid and the Volkswagen Vento.

Hyundai Verna Highlights
The Verna gets a pair of 1.6-litre engines that are among the most powerful in the segment. However, don’t let the big numbers fool you. The Verna isn’t about all-out performance. It’s strength lies in drivability and everyday usage. Both engines are refined and easy to drive. The optional 6-speed automatic bumps up the convenience quotient.
Exterior and Interior
The new Verna looks like a baby Elantra. It has traded the old sporty persona for a slightly more elegant and sophisticated look. It gets the signature Hyundai elements including the new cascading grille, and the large sweptback headlamps. The side profile largely remains similar to the older car whereas the rear now gets LED taillamps, similar to the one of the Elite i20.
It isn’t as spacious as the Honda City or the Ciaz, nor is the boot as large. This apart, it gets everything else nearly spot on. The sedan also borrows quite a lot of features from its elder sibling, the Elantra. Three key highlights include the sunroof, ventilated seats and hands-free boot release - all of which are limited to the top-spec trims. The usual feature set such as the 7.0-inch touchscreen, rear air-conditioning and steering-mounted controls are on offer as well.
The Hyundai Verna come in a total of 4 variants the automatic transmissions being offered on the EX and SX (O), the total variant count goes upto 12. The EX and the SX trims offer most bang for buck. We’d recommend the SX since it offers the feel-good features such as the touchscreen, sunroof, projector headlamps and 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels for a reasonable premium.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz: A competitive pricing, a refined and frugal diesel motor and a familiar brand name have allowed the Ciaz to play ping pong with the City for the top slot. With the benefits now washed away, the Ciaz will have to up the ante with the facelift that’s due next year.
Skoda Rapid: The Skoda Rapid not only looks European but also feels European; and that's because it is European. The new face alone gives it an elegant vibe as it draws inspiration from pricier cars instead of looking like a hatchback (Fabia). The Rapid's tank-like build quality and mature driving dynamics are its strengths, while a thin service network and high maintenance costs keep potential customers at bay.
Volkswagen Vento: The Volkswagen Vento shares the platform, powertrain, strengths and weaknesses with the Skoda Rapid. The Vento, however, desperately needs a generation change or at least a facelift. It has a heavy build quality and a great balance between ride and handling. But, these are features you'll appreciate only after you've lived with the car for some time. And once you have, there’s no going back to anything else.
The new Verna has matured, and how! It’s evolved into a classy package that drives well, packs in all the tech you need (and more) and priced reasonably as well. If you’re going to be driving solo most of the time or don’t really care about the folks at the rear - the Verna is a near no-brainer.
