Written by Parichay Malvankar

Hyundai has recently launched the new Verna in India. Now, deliveries of the sedan have also commenced. Let us take a look at the review of the 2023 Hyundai Verna.

The Hyundai Verna starts from INR 10,89,900. It is available in four variants – EX, S , SX and the top-of-the-line SX(O). In terms of engine options, the Korean carmaker is offering buyers a choice of 1.5-litre NA engine or a 1.5-litre Turbo petrol. There are no diesel engines on offer.

Visually, the 2023 Hyundai Verna boasts of the Sensuous Sportiness theme. The front of the car is dominated by a large trapezoid-shaped grille. It features a slim LED light bar across the full-width of the Verna. The sides too feature a few character lines. These merge with the LED tail lights at the back.

On the inside, Hyundai has equipped the new Verna with a host of features. These include the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The driver too gets an all-digital instrument cluster. Hyundai offers a two-spoke multifunction steering wheel with the Verna. Other features include heated / ventilated front seats, powered driver seat, multicolour ambient lights and a Bose Audio system. The insides also get an automatic climate control, a smart trunk and an electric sunroof.

Hyundai Verna comes with two 1.5-litre petrol engines. First, is the 115 HP naturally aspirated (NA) unit and second is the 160 HP turbocharged unit. The former is only available with lower variants, while the latter will serve the higher variants. While both engines will come with manual and automatic options. The standard gearbox is a 6-speed manual gearbox. Then the NA unit will get a CVT and the turbo-petrol will get a DCT as an option.
