  • 2023 Hyundai Verna to offer features like six airbags and rear parking sensors as standard.

We are just within touching distance for the launch of the new generation Hyundai Verna and before the covers come off the new sedan on March 21, the marque has disclosed everything you need to know about the safety features it’ll come with. Without further ado, here’s what the new Verna’s safety package looks like:

Safety chahiye? Safety denge 

That’s the motto of Hyundai with the new generation Verna and it is clearly expressed via its safety suite, which boasts a plethora of features as standard. Here’s a list of the chief standard features you need to know about:

  • Six airbags (driver, passenger, side & curtain) 

  • All 3-point seatbelts (all seats)

  • Seat belt reminder (all seats)

  • Speed-sensing auto door lock

  • Impact-sensing auto door unlock

  • ABS with EBD

  • Emergency stop signal (ESS) 

  • Follow me home headlamps

  • Auto-headlamps

  • ISOFIX child anchorages

  • Lane change indicator

  • Burglar alarm

  • Rear defogger 

  • Keyless entry

  • Rear parking sensor

Now remember, these are just standard fitments. As you go up its variants list, the number of features will only increase, further including:

  • ESC (Electronic stability control) with VSM (Vehicle Stability Management)

  • Hill start assist control (HAC)

  • All disc brakes on four corners

  • EPB (electric parking brake)

  • Front parking sensors

  • Auto-dimming IRVM

  • Cornering lamps 

  • TPMS

  • Hyundai SmartSense (ADAS)

The new Verna will be the second vehicle in its segment after the 2023 Honda City to feature ADAS functionality. It gets level-2 autonomy and includes features such as:

  • Forward collision warning

  • Lane keeping assist

  • Lane departure warning

  • Driver attention warning

  • Safe exit warning

  • Adaptive cruise control

  • Lane following assist

  • High beam assist

  • Leading vehicle departure alert

  • Rear cross-traffic collision warning

  • Rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist

This rounds up everything that makes up the new Verna’s safety kit. And as for its creature comforts, Hyundai has left no stone unturned in that area too, offering features like  front ventilated and heated seats (the latter a segment first), eight-speaker Bose premium sound system, a 10.25-inch screen for the infotainment system, a Venue-like digital driver’s display, rear AC vents, and ambient lighting.


The upcoming Verna will also step up its game in terms of engine options. There won’t be any diesel option. Instead, the 115PS, 1.5-litre, NA petrol unit will be carried forward, alongside a new 160PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. Both these engines have been upgraded to meet RDE compliance and can run on E20 fuel (with 20 percent ethanol blend). The former will get six-speed MT and CVT options, while the turbo-petrol powertrain will send its power to the front wheels via either a six-speed MT or a seven-speed DCT.

We expect Hyundai to retail the new Verna from Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom) onwards. It’ll rekindle its rivalry with other compact sedans like the Skoda Slavia, VW Virtus, Honda City, and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
