Are you thinking about purchasing the brand-new Hyundai Verna? If yes, be ready for a long waiting time that varies depending on the city and many other factors. In the Bhopal region specifically, the all-new Verna has a waiting period of up to 30 weeks. This prolonged waiting duration is relevant to the EX, S, SX, and SX(O) models. It is important to remember that the current waiting period is the same as it was in June 2023. The updated Verna costs between Rs 10.90 lakh and Rs 17.38 lakh. These are both ex-showroom prices. Customers who are interested in learning more about the waiting period should get in touch with the nearby authorized dealership outlet. In our market, the revamped sedan rivals the likes of the Volkswagen Virtus, the Skoda Slavia, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and more. If you are planning to bring home this all-new Verna, then let's go through its features and other specs.
Hyundai Verna: Engine
Under the hood, the all-new Verna offers a choice between two engines: a 1.5-litre NA unit and a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol mill. The former petrol motor produces a maximum power of 113bhp and a peak torque of 144Nm, whereas the latter 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine generates 158bhp of peak power and 253Nm of top torque. In terms of transmission, the petrol model gets a choice between a six-speed manual unit and an IVT unit. On the other hand, the turbo-petrol mill comes with a six-speed manual and a seven-speed DCT as transmission options. Hyundai does not provide a diesel engine option with the all-new Verna.
Hyundai Verna: Features
The new Verna boasts several features such as 16-inch designer wheels, connected-type LED taillamps, a full-width DRL, a blacked-out Parametric grille, bumper-mounted LED headlamps, and much more. Inside, the sedan sports a sunroof, dual 10.25-inch screens, an 8-speaker Bose music system, heated and ventilated seats, and a switchable touch-based interface.
Hyundai renders some variants of the Verna with the Advanced Driver Assistant System (ADAS) that comes with approximately 17 Level 2 ADAS capabilities, powered by Hyundai SmartSense. These ADAS features are identical to the ones found in Hyundai's latest Tucson SUV model, comprising adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, high beam assistance, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and more.
