Hyundai Verna Engines
Powering the new for 2023 Hyundai Verna would be two 1.5L petrol engine options. No strong hybrid, no diesel engine option. We wish that if not a diesel, a strong hybrid should have been offered. The 1.5L turbocharged petrol motor will be offered with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The 1.5L naturally aspirated petrol motor will get an option of 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic.
