The all-new Hyundai Verna will come with a 1.5-litre gasoline engine that can be either turbocharged or naturally aspirated.

The sixth-generation Verna was designed with Hyundai's latest 'Sensuous Sportiness' design language. The sporty front end of the 2023 Hyundai Verna gets a new blacked-out grille with integrated LED headlamps and a sharp-looking bumper with LED strips running symmetrically across the face of the car. LED lighting is also used in the taillamps. The side has the same sporty look as the front. The sedan has a premium feel thanks to its sharp character lines. The diamond-cut alloy wheels are also sporty in appearance. Because of its rising beltline and coupe-like rear end, the new Hyundai Verna stands out among mid-size sedans.

With a 1,765mm width, the new Verna will be the widest sedan in its class. The 2,670mm wheelbase, which will be the longest in the segment, guarantees that both rows of passengers will have plenty of legroom. The new Verna measures 1,475mm in height and 4,535mm in length. The Verna from Hyundai may come standard with 15-inch alloy wheels.

2023 Hyundai Verna: Segment-first Features

Hyundai has revealed that the upcoming new Verna will be equipped with the Advanced Driver Assistant System (ADAS), in terms of features (ADAS). According to the automaker, the Verna 2023 will have level 2 ADAS features using Hyundai SmartSense, with about 17 features. The ADAS features that will be added are comparable to those that Hyundai already provides in its latest Tucson SUV model. These include, among others, rear cross-traffic alert, high beam assist, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and driver attention warning. In India, the Verna will follow the recently launched Honda City facelift as the second sedan to offer ADAS technology.

Along with about 65 safety features, the upcoming Verna will also have a number of market-first features. These 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). 

2023 Hyundai Verna: Interior Details

The new Hyundai Verna's interior will also receive an update 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. Additionally, the Verna 2023 will feature a climate control system that is the first of its kind in the segment. According to the company, this will improve the interaction with both functionalities. Moreover, the updated Verna will now have heated and ventilated front seats, another industry first. The Hyundai Verna's eight-speaker Bose audio system is one of the interior's other standout feature.

2023 Hyundai Verna: Expected Price and Rivals

The current Hyundai Verna generation costs between Rs 15.71 lakh and Rs 29.63 lakh (ex-showroom), and is offered in both gasoline and diesel options. However, Hyundai will no longer make the new Verna available with a diesel engine. When compared with its predecessor, the prices are anticipated to be significantly revised. The Hyundai Verna is expected to have a starting price of approximately Rs 11 lakh and a top-spec model with ADAS features that will cost Rs 18 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom).

Due to the number of features and size that the updated Verna is expected to offer, the existing cars will undoubtedly face fierce competition when it enters the Indian market tomorrow. As mentioned earlier, the Hyundai Verna will be rivalled by the new 2023 Honda City, the Volkswagen Virtus, the Skoda Slavia, and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
