Home / Home / 2020 Hyundai Verna – How Stocked Is It?


The 2020 Hyundai Verna was launched in the country a short while ago and, while it has been impossible to thoroughly test the car during the reign of COVID-19, we can give you an insight as to what the new car offers.

The design language does somewhat follow certain aspects of what we have seen in Hyundai’s new range of vehicles. An example being the front grille that does have a similar style to what we see on the Venue. However, the new Hyundai Verna is indeed its own beast here, with a sporty stance couple and sharp lines from certain angles, yet gentle elsewhere. No complaints here, although, looks are down to one’s own perception, we think this is more than a decent looking vehicle.

All exterior bells and whistles one may expect are surely seen. The LED lamps look like they have been adopted from a sci-fi epic and also feature Hyundai’s headlamp cornering function that activates to make for better vision around a corner. We also see a huge chrome front grille that has had mixed reviews from whomever we have spoken to, with some loving it while others have been a bit less gleeful. The front and rear receive skid-plates, with the rear bumper, gets a new sporty design. We also see twin mufflers at the rear which adds to the sporty look the Hyundai Verna aims at.

The interior has its own set of enticements in the segment with ventilated front seats aimed at comfort during the summer months. A cooled glove-box to keep refreshments or snacks at a happy temperature is also found in the new Hyundai Verna. The front centre console slides to and fro and features a storage compartment. You also get a smart electric sunroof up above and a smart trunk lid that opens automatically after three seconds when one, with the smart key, stands next to it.

Features include an 8.0-inch HD touchscreen as well as the cluster ionizer and eco-coating tech that help keep the air fresh inside; a good move considering pollution levels in the country. Other features such as wireless charging, cruise control, electro-chromic mirror – fitted with Blue Link switches, and front and rear USB ports are also seen. Blue Link tech is one that works towards one’s safety, convenience and security. In addition, rear air-conditioning vents and a rear defogger have been added.

There are three engine choices available starting with a 1.5-litre MPi petrol engine that makes 115 hp and 144 Nm of torque mated to either a six-speed manual or an IVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission) automatic gearbox. Pricing for these engine variants starts at Rs 9.31 lakh (ex-showroom).

Next is the 1.5-litre U2 CRDi diesel engine which is capable of 115 hp and 250 Nm of torque. It is available with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. Pricing for the diesel variants start from Rs 10.66 lakh (ex-showroom)

Hyundai have also added the 1.0-litre Kappa Turbo GDi petrol-engine, that delivers 120 hp and maximum torque of 172 Nm of torque, mated to a DCT seven-speed transmission. Pricing for this sole variant is Rs 13.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

Safety, which is now high up on the list for most manufacturers has been attended to in the new Hyundai Verna with features such as electronic stability control, emergency stop signal, tyre pressure monitoring system, and vehicle stability management to name a few. In addition, warranty periods are options of three years/unlimited kilometres, four years/60,000 kilometres or five years/50,000 kilometres. Hyundai have really hit the ball out of the park with this new launch. We cannot wait to test the new Hyundai Verna and shall keep you posted on the happenings.
