On Tuesday, March 21, Hyundai Motor is slated to reveal the 2019 Verna’s pricing. The Korean manufacturer has already launched bookings for the tiny sedan that will fight the likes of Honda City, Volkswagen Virtus, Skoda Slavia, and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz in the class. In comparison to the previous generation, the new Hyundai Verna will be larger, more powerful, and equipped with a number of market-first innovations. Also, it will be the second car in its class to use ADAS technology.
With a breadth of 1,765 mm, the new Verna will be the segment’s broadest sedan. It will also have the segment’s biggest wheelbase at 2,670 mm, ensuring that both rows of passengers would have plenty of legroom. The latest generation Verna measures 1,475 mm in height and 4,535 millimeters in length. Hyundai is probably going to offer 16-inch alloy wheels with the Verna.
Engine and Transmission
Hyundai Verna 2023 will come with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that may be either turbocharged or normally aspirated. The car will still be available with a seven-speed DCT transmission option for the turbocharged models in addition to the six-speed manual and CVT gearbox options. The turbocharged 1.5-liter engine will be more potent with an output of 163PS and 253 Nm, while the conventional 1.5-liter engine is anticipated to provide 115PS of power and 144 Nm of peak torque.
Hyundai has revealed that the incoming new Verna would be equipped with the Advanced Driver Assistance System in terms of features (ADAS). According to the automaker, the Verna 2023 would include level 2 ADAS capabilities using Hyundai SmartSense, with about 17 features. The ADAS technologies that will be featured are comparable to those seen in Hyundai’s next-generation Tucson SUV. They include, among others, rear cross-traffic alert, high beam assist, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, front collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and driver attentiveness warning. After the debut of the facelifted Honda City earlier this month, Verna will be the second sedan in India to incorporate ADAS technology.
Together with over 65 safety measures, the forthcoming Verna will also include a number of market-first innovations. They include, among others, tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability management (VSM), hill-start assist control (HAC), and electronic parking brake (EPB).
The 2023 Hyundai Verna’s interior will also receive a makeover with new furnishings and technology. A new 10.25-inch HD infotainment screen and a digital cluster with TFT MID will be located in the middle of the dashboard. Also, the Verna 2023 will include a temperature control system that is the first of its kind in the sector. According to the firm, this will improve the interaction with both functionalities. In addition, the Verna will now include heated and ventilated front seats, another industry first. The Hyundai Verna’s eight-speaker Bose audio system is one among the interior’s other standout features.
The pricing of the current generation Hyundai Verna, which is offered in both gasoline and diesel, ranges from 9.63 lakh to 15.71 lakh (ex-showroom). Hyundai will no longer make the new Verna available with a diesel engine. Nonetheless, compared to its predecessor, the prices are anticipated to be drastically updated. Hyundai Verna 2023 pricing is anticipated to range from between 11 lakh to 18 lakh for the top-spec variant, which would also have the ADAS capabilities.
