As underlined by the table above, the new Verna has grown in size, significantly. Hyundai has stretched its wheelbase by 70mm, while the overall length is now 95mm more than the previous Verna. The former is now the biggest in the segment and we’ve done a detailed dimension comparison in which the new Hyundai is pitched against its chief rivals, more details about it here.


For its styling, Hyundai has drawn inspiration from its global lineup, as the front sports the very familiar trapezoid-shaped parametric grille from the new Elantra, flanked by the split headlights. On the other hand, the slim LED DRL that spans the width of the bonnet is very similar to the Ioniq 5 and 6.

The profile sports sharp creases and the roofline cascades down to the boot in a quintessential coupe manner. Moving towards the rear, the rear fenders seem to arch outwards, giving the sedan a rather sporty stance. The connected taillights are also prominent as the sharply styled L-shaped LED taillights are extended near the rear fender. The Verna emblem is embossed over the light strip and the bumper sports a rather plain design in comparison to the overall styling, which really does look striking.


The cabin of the compact sedan is also a big step up from the previous generation model. Like most modern vehicles, the infotainment system and digital driver’s display are integrated onto a single bezel, in very similar fashion to the carmaker’s premium EV, the Ioniq 5. The driver side of the cabin, up until the passenger side of the central console is angled towards the driver, which will make it a lot more intuitive and safer for the driver to use.


The two-spoke wheel looks different from the mass produced Hyundais we get in the country. The dashboard design is clean but layered and the air-con vents that extend all the way across the dash look slim and chic. Climate control knobs, which double up for infotainment, can be found just below the big screen in the centre and it is safe to say that the game inside the cabin has definitely been stepped up with splashes of ambient lighting all-around.  


The new Verna is as profuse as it gets in the compact sedan segment in the country. It boasts segment-first heated front seats (also ventilated), powered driver seat and a 360-degree camera while features like a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment, Venue-like digital driver’s display, steering-mounted audio controls, ambient lighting, climate control, auto headlamps, keyless entry with push button start and rear AC vents are the other bits on offer.

Further aiding its drool-worthy list of features is the availability of ADAS which includes features such as lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and auto-emergency braking. The rest of the safety kit packs six airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child-seat anchorages, and rear defogger – all as standard. Besides, the top-spec variants also get auto-dimming IRVM, tyre pressure monitoring system, four disc brakes, and hill-start assist. 


While the new generation Verna is really all-new from top to bottom, it retains one thing from the outgoing model, i.e, the 115PS, 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol powertrain. Alongside it is a new 160PS, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol powertrain, which gets a seven-speed DCT option. Six-speed manual transmission is the standard fitment while the naturally aspirated unit also gets a CVT option. The NA petrol boasts a claimed fuel efficiency of 18.6kmpl (MT) and 19.6kmpl (CVT), while the turbo-petrol engine delivers a claimed 20kmpl (MT) and 20.6kmpl (DCT). Unlike before, there isn’t a diesel engine on offer.  


With this new generation, the Hyundai Verna has gotten the much needed update to bolster its fight against the likes of the 2023 Honda City, VW Virtus, Skoda Slavia and Maruti Ciaz. If you look features-wise, the Honda City is the only other in the segment to feature ADAS functionality. Stay tuned if you want to know how the Verna fares against its chief rivals as we’ll bring detailed comparisons very soon.
