New Generation Hyundai Verna Features – See Details
One worldwide vehicle that is scheduled for a makeover is the Hyundai Verna. Its disguised test mules have been sighted testing in India multiple times, giving some specifics. With the worldwide unveiling planned this quarter, we may aspire for a debut in our market in the second quarter at the very least. Here is all we can expect from the car.
The camouflage on our country’s test mules has done an excellent job of concealing the outward alterations. The new Verna’s exterior, on the other hand, is expected to be based on the brand’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy. As a consequence, the car should acquire a grille similar to the Elantra with split headlamps on either side. Aside from the sweptback headlights, the bumpers have been updated, with the front one receiving an ADAS sensor beneath the registration plate.
After detecting the sensor, it’s safe to assume that Verna’s upcoming model will include ADAS. And that’s no surprise, given that we’ve already had a taste of it with the new Tucson. Surprisingly, the sedan’s interior will be substantially redesigned. A dual-screen configuration with a huge touchscreen entertainment system in the centre and a digital instrument cluster is included. Also, knowing Hyundai, we may anticipate new segment-first features and a plethora of equipment.
Engine and transmission
Hyundai is expected to offer the 2023 Verna with its tried-and-true 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. Nonetheless, we anticipate that these will be combined with a hybrid motor. Transmission choices such as the present six-speed manual and automatic transmissions might also be carried over. However, with the introduction of RDE pollution standards, there is a risk that Hyundai would abandon the oil-burner in this soon-to-be petrol-centric category.
Competition and Timeline
The Verna is set to enter production at the manufacturer’s factory in India next month. Following its worldwide premiere, the car will be built in our nation for other markets as well. In reality, output will be increased in comparison to the previous plan in order to meet export demand. The new-generation Hyundai Verna will compete in India alongside the Honda City, Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus, and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
