The new Hyundai Verna has just launched in the country with a starting price tag of Rs 10.90 lakh (ex-showroom). The new sedan is really all new with fresh styling, a completely revised cabin layout, more premium features and even a new turbo-petrol powertrain underneath. So today, we find out if there are any visual and creature comfort differences between the naturally aspirated and turbo 1.5-litre petrol powertrains of the Verna using images. Let’s go:

While the overall shape and styling are of course similar for both the powertrains, there are minute differences and exclusive features which separate the two. For starters, the turbo variant gets a slightly different grille design as compared to the standard petrol variant.

Exclusive to the turbo variants are the 16-inch all-black alloy wheels and red inserts on the front brake callipers. On the other hand, the non-turbo variants get the same wheel design, albeit in a dual-tone shade. Also limited to the top-spec turbo trim are the four disk brakes that’ll make sure you have enough stopping power for when you get a bit too enthusiastic with the performance of the turbo powertrain.

A quick look at the rear-end might suggest both models look almost the same. However, look closely and you’ll notice that both variants get bespoke bumper designs. Also, the naturally aspirated engines have variant badging on the boot while the turbo gets its engine badging. 

In terms of colour shades, there are a total of seven standard monotone hues available: Titan Grey, Tellurian Brown, Typhoon Silver, Fiery Red, Atlas White, Abyss Black, and Starry Night. But only the Altas White and Fiery Red shades get a black dual-tone roof, that too with only the Turbo variants. The naturally aspirated variants can only be had with the monotone hues. 

On the inside, the turbo variants exclusively get electric parking brakes, metal pedals and black interiors with red accents on the dashboard and seats. All of these additions up the sporty quotient of the sedan. However, if you wish to spec it in the more sedate dual-tone beige and black upholstery, you’ll have to trade in the turbo-petrol for the naturally aspirated unit as the former isn’t available with that option.

These apart, the majority of features, including the 10.25-inch touchscreen, wireless phone charging, digital driver’s display, eight-speaker Bose system, front ventilated and heated seats, powered driver seats, and cruise control are mutual between the two powertrains. Even ADAS features are common between the two; however, the turbo powertrain does get two additional features with its DCT transmission, i.e, vehicle departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

That pretty much sums up the visual and feature differences between the two. As for their outputs, the naturally aspirated 1.5-litre engine produces 115PS and 144Nm, while the turbo-petrol has an output of 160PS and 253Nm. A six-speed manual is standard, while the CVT and DCT are optional for pure petrol and turbo petrol, respectively. The former returns a claimed fuel efficiency of up to 19.6kmpl (CVT), while the turbo-petrol boasts up to 20.6kmpl (DCT) fuel efficiency.
