Next-Gen Hyundai Verna to Feature Dual Screens

Hyundai Motor India Ltd has revealed new features of the next-gen Verna ahead of its global debut on March 21. The mid-size sedan is slated for a launch later this month. Bookings have already commenced, with deliveries set to start from mid-April. 

Next-Gen Hyundai Verna: Infotainment and Other Features

Hyundai Feature

The new Hyundai Verna will come with a dual 10.25-inch screens for both the infotainment screen and the digital instrument cluster. This setup is similar to the one seen on the recently launched Ioniq 5 EV. The new sedan will get an 8-speaker audio setup from Bose, replacing the outgoing model’s Arkamys system.

Verna Interior

Another notable feature addition to the next-gen Verna’s cabin is the switchable touch panel unit that switches interface between infotainment control and HVAC at the press of a button. The sedan will also get heated and ventilated front seats. Hyundai has already revealed some features of the new Berna earlier like a cooled glove box, unique front passenger phone holder, and a multipurpose console, and a dual-tone beige and black interior with leatherette upholstery.

Next-Gen Hyundai Verna: Powertrain Details

Hyundai will offer two petrol powertrain options with the new Verna. The entry-level variants will be available with the 1.5-litre N/A petrol engine from the current model. This unit makes 115 bhp with 145 Nm of max torque and is paired to a 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission.

The higher trims of the new model will be powered by a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol motor, pumping out 160 bhp with 253 Nm of peak torque. Transmission could options include a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT automatic.

Both powertrains meet the upcoming BS6 Phase II emission norms and are E20 (20 percent ethanol blend) fuel compliant.

Next-Gen Hyundai Verna: Pricing and Rivals

While prices haven’t been announced yet, expect the new Verna to be around Rs 60,000 - Rs 1 lakh more than the outgoing model. The current Verna’s prices range from Rs 9.63 lakh (ex-showroom) - Rs 15.71 lakh (ex-showroom).

Upon launch, the next-gen Hyundai Verna will rival the likes of the Škoda Slavia, VW Virtus, Maruti Ciaz, and the recently facelifted Honda City.
