The Spirited new Verna has very recently marked its presence. The Verna has been “The Sedan” for Hyundai in India rivalling the Honda City and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The 2020 Hyundai Verna brings a lot to the table, especially the 1.0 Turbo DCT Variant which is a great VFM package for anyone looking for a peppy sedan in the C-Segment. Let take a look at how far the 2020 Hyundai Verna has come in comparison to the last generation 2017 Verna.
Old Verna vs New Verna | Exterior
The 2020 Hyundai Verna is a subtle departure from the previous generation. The new Verna has more edges and looks more sporty compared to the 2017 model. Apart from that, the 2020 Verna also gets a pair of LED Headlamps as opposed to Halogen Projectors on the 2017 model. The cascading grille remains the same, however, the grille also gets an edgier treatment noticeable on the opposite ends. The 2020 Verna preserves that sporty coupe roofline, which has been synonymous with Verna’s of the old.
The 1.0-litre Turbo DCT variant of the 2020 Verna gets dual end cans. The last Verna model which featured dual tailpipes was, in fact, the 2010-2011 Verna Transform.
Old Verna vs New Verna | Interiors
On the inside, the 2020 Verna gets a big update. Aside from the similar two-tone interior layout of the dashboard, the 2020 Verna gets a host of new features; an all-new 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, Hyundai’s BlueLink smart connected car technology, wireless mobile charging pad, a fully digital instrument cluster, new AC vents with metal inserts.
The Turbo variant of the New Hyundai Verna, however, gets an all-black interior layout with red accents on the AC vents, the steering wheel, the seats and the gear lever. This give the Verna a sportier look.
Old Hyundai Verna vs New Hyundai Verna | Engine Options
The 2017 Hyundai came with three engine options; a 1.6 -litre Kappa Petrol, a 1.4-litre and a 1.6-litre CRDi diesel. Hyundai has decided to ditch the old engines altogether. The 2020 Hyundai Verna now comes with three BS6 Complaint Engine options;
- A 1.5-litre CRDi Diesel that produces 115bhp and 250nm of torque paired to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter.
- 1.5-litre Gamma Petrol good for 115bhp and 144 nm of torque mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed CVT.
- And the party piece, a 1.0-litre T-GDi Turbocharged Petrol Engine that churns about 120bhp and 172nm of Torque. Only the 1.0-litre Turbo variant gets a 7-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) gearbox.
