After a considerable hiatus, sedans have made a triumphant return to the limelight, with the brand-new Hyundai Verna captivating attention for its modern allure. The fourth-generation Hyundai Verna not only boasts a complete redesign both inside and out, but also aims to captivate a new generation of contemporary enthusiasts with innovative features and substantial changes beneath the surface. Here’s how the Hyundai Verna is leading the sedan game with the following attributes:
Reinvigorating the midsize sedan segment, the all-new Hyundai Verna introduces a cutting-edge 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. Delivering unparalleled performance metrics – a peak power output of 160 PS and a maximum torque of 253 Nm – this turbo-petrol engine seeks to elevate the driving experience of the all-new Verna, providing improved acceleration compared to its direct competitors.
Potent Transmission Options
A dynamic engine necessitates well-matched transmission choices, enabling drivers to fully explore the engine’s true potential and performance. Fortuitously, the new Hyundai Verna offers not one, but two robust transmission selections for its 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine – a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (DCT). While the 6-speed manual caters to those desiring complete control, the 7-speed DCT elevates the experience, coupled with the convenience of clutch-free driving.
All Four Disc Brakes
With such impressive performance on offer, the Hyundai Verna warrants top-tier braking capability to swiftly halt the excitement when necessary. The most powerful iterations of the Hyundai Verna – those equipped with the turbo-petrol engine – are outfitted with disc brakes on all four wheels. This feature equips the new Verna with potent braking performance, significantly advantageous during extended highway drives where consistent triple-digit speeds are maintained.
First-in-Segment Parking Assist
Though most vehicles come equipped with reverse parking sensors as a fundamental feature, the new Hyundai Verna amplifies this feature by including front parking sensors in its top-tier variants. The inclusion of front parking sensors, in addition to the reverse sensors and rear camera with guidelines, constitutes an exceptional parking assist package in the segment. This elevates the Verna’s parking prowess, particularly in confined spaces.
Hyundai’s reputation for outfitting its vehicles with cutting-edge features, often setting trends for others to follow, is well established. Staying true to this tradition, the new Hyundai Verna introduces segment-first features such as heated front seats, an electronic parking brake, powered driver’s seat, and a touch-sensitive dual-panel for climate control and audio adjustments. Furthermore, it offers premium elements like the ADAS package, ventilated front seats, sunroof, and a full-TFT instrument console.
