The 2020 Hyundai Verna was recently launched in the Indian market. This sedan is now BS6 compliant (of course!) and comes with a set of completely new engines which power it under the hood. The only question that was raised for the new engines was the fuel economy. Here we are with the fuel economy of the all-new Hyundai Verna! The new sedan in town has finally got the ARAI ratings. Check these out.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna comes in 5 mechanical combinations which are highest in its segment. There are 3 engines and 3 transmission options to choose from. The first one is a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre petrol engine which comes coupled to a 6-speed MT and a CVT. The ARAI certifies mileage for the MT and the CVT is 17.7kpl and 18.45kpl respectively.
The second engine available on the 2020 Hyundai Verna is a 1.0-litre turbocharged engine. we have already seen this engine on the Aura and the Venue. Hyundai is actively investing in the turbocharged engines these days. Therefore, it has made its way into the Verna too. This 3-cylinder, 998cc engine gets a 7-speed DCT transmission. The claimed mileage for this one is 19.2kpl. This one is more than the naturally aspirated petrol engine because obviously, that engine holds a bigger power rating.
The lineup now extends into the diesel versions. The 2020 Hyundai Verna diesel gets a 1.5-litre diesel engine which is coupled to a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed AT. The ARAI certified mileage for the diesel variants is 25kpl and 21.3kpl. The fuel economy for the new Verna is better than the previous version in both petrol and diesel avatars. As per the records, the new engines are meant to deliver better mileage than the older ones. The real-world fuel economy of the turbo-petrol variant though remains uncertain and will totally depend upon the driving style just like the other turbo-petrol cars.
