About Hyundai Verna 2017-2020

It's only a year since Hyundai launched new Verna in the Indian market (August 2017) and although the launch of the facelift is still some time away (H2-2020), the company has already started working on it. Along with the changes in soft body elements (sheet metal, grill, bumpers etc.), the facelift Verna is speculated to feature a brand new 1.5-liter diesel engine which will replace the current 1.6-liter oil-burner. This will be done primarily to comply with the BS-VI emission norms which will be effective from April 1, 2020. Besides being cleaner, the new engine is expected to be more fuel-efficient (owing to its reduced capacity) but it may also down on the output. A new 1.5-liter petrol engine is also on the cards and though details are still sketchy for now, one thing is certain that it’ll integrate a hybrid motor system for higher efficiency and cleaner emissions. The facelift version is also expected to feature high on the connectivity and Telematics; will be a focus area for all the future developments, according to the company. Just so you know, the current generation Hyundai Verna is priced in Indian market at Rs 7.90- 13.0 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is available in both petrol and diesel versions. Further, Hyundai has provided the convenience of automatic in both fuel variants and Verna compete against the likes of Honda City and Maruti Ciaz among others.

Hyundai Verna 2017-2020 Overview

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.

Q. Which is best option in hyundai verna petrol or diesel and which is economical and better in performance?
  • The Hyundai Verna is available with three engine options: 1.4-litre petrol, 1.6-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel. The 1.4-litre petrol engine produces 100PS/132Nm, while the 1.6-litre petrol engine makes 123PS/151Nm. Power figures for the 1.6-litre diesel engine, on the other hand, stand at 128PS/260Nm. Both the 1.6-litre engines are offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox, while the 1.4-litre engine is offered only with the 6-speed manual gearbox. If your requiremnts are only for the city comutes then 1.4 liter petrol version would be a better pick other wise if you need more power, then you can opt 1.6 liter petrol version. and if your daily usage is more than around 50km then you may opt for 1.6 diesel version. Here are the ARAI-certified figures for fuel efficiency: 17.70kmpl (petrol-MT), 15.92kmpl (petrol-AT), 24.75kmpl (diesel-MT) and 21.02kmpl (diesel-AT).

  • Diesel if you believe in the phrase pedal to the metal & great fuel efficiency. Petrol is good too but the diesel is so much superior in every aspect that , it usually overshadows the petrol variant in sales as well overall driving experience.
  • Diesel is better if you are looking for long term ..it has been 8 years since I had own one.....It gives around 17 kmpl in city and 22-23 at highways

Q. Which is better between Verna and city
  • For better performance..smooth engine and silent cabin..Hyundai verna is the best sedan in this price range..and if you're looking for spacious cabin ...large boot space ..then go for honda city.city's 1.5 i-dtec engine if good for long drives but for city rides, verna's engine will give better performance.

  • The 1.6 VGT SX (O) version. Which is the full package. I'd recommend manual transmission because automatic becomes boring after a period. The VGT engine has a turbocharger in it which spools up pretty fast and you can feel the kick of sudden increase in power as the engine touches 3,000 rpm. It is a very responsive and nimble vehicle.
  • Depends on your budget, if you really want to enjoy all the feature and comfort like , ventilated seats, sunroof, leatherette nsteering wheels etc.. then go for the top end SX(O)
  • If you're zeroing for a diesel-manual or an automatic Verna, then EX variant will be the value-for-money pick. But it's not the variant to buy if you've shortlisted the petrol-manual Verna. In that case we would suggest you to pick for its SX trim.

    Very well maintained insideout Single owner single hand car with 80% highway miles means no city braking, cluth and suspension usage. This is a top end variant with Push start button, key less entry, all disk brakes and alloy wheels, 6 airbags, leather upholstery & POLK 4 speaker music system with FOCAL amplifier fitted. More than anything else the car drives very well without any issues with excellent ride quality. Come check it out then take a call

    Poorest of poor quality mechanics. Only outside beauty and styling is there. Overheating problems still exist, even after replacing major parts including engine assembly. Moreover nobody responsible from Hyundai will even attend to your call, not even the state head. Only the local area manager will talk to you , that too in a harsh tone, as though he is the owner of HMIL and is your godfather. Kindly do not buy Hyundai cars.

    Verna and grand i10 are my daily commute vehicles.i purchased this beast Next gen Verna in 2018 march till today I've clocked 30k kms when ever I take this beast out of my parking it always puts a smile on my face interiors are just fab!

    I am having Verna Base model 1400 cc petrol . But it is good for long drive. Comfort & space are good . I am facing steering problem to some little extent. It lags to left side and causing some strain on right hand. When brought it to notice of service center they are saying nothing . Such problem is not felt in i20 & i10 which too I drive

  • 2.3

    Very poor service, sent car to service centre Rutu Hyundai, Kalyan for 10000 km servicing. And complained to attend abnormal irrational sound of doors and steering but the dealer returned the Wehicle without attending the problem and informed the same has attended and rectified. After so many reminders they are not turned with solution.

The Toyota Yaris is squarely aimed at the stalwarts of its segment like the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City and the Hyundai Verna, how does it compare?

May 21, 2018  By Team ZigWheels

We grab the keys to the Yaris’ promising petrol-automatic variant, and pit it against Hyundai’s evolved Verna and Honda’s 18-till-I-die City. Buckle up, this is interesting

The all-new Hyundai Verna steps back into the ring with the Honda City looking for some payback. Who wins?
