Hyundai Verna • Price, Variants & Specifications

Hyundai Verna has always been a safe bet for the South Korean automaker in the sedan category since its launch in the Indian automobile market in 2006. The first generation Verna, however, failed to make an impression but the fortunes reversed with the launch of third generation sedan in 2011. Hyundai's new Fluidic design philosophy in the third generation set a new benchmark with its new combination of powerful engines, sculpted styling, and quality interiors that made the buyers say 'wow' and placed Hyundai at the top of the mid-size sedan segment. Things went smooth for a good two years, and fast forward to 2015, everything started falling apart with the revelation of the new Honda City, the current supremo in the segment. Honda City made a big impact on the Hyundai Verna's sales, and Maruti Ciaz, currently holding the second spot in the highly competitive segment, further made things worse by outnumbering the Verna sales in recent years.

Hyundai Verna hasn't given up and launched the new Verna facelift with some cosmetic and mechanical changes to make it more competitive and reclaim its lost territory.

Exterior Features - New Additions

The Verna facelift is based on a Fluidic design and termed 4S Fluidic Verna by Hyundai where '4S' stands for style, safety, sophisticated interior and speed.

Hyundai has given due importance to all the forementioned factors apart from the subtle modifications in the exterior. There is an all new refreshed look with the new nose, angular pair bonnet that flows into a wider chrome grille, reworked fog lamp housing on the restyled bumper and bigger air dam. The diamond cut alloy wheels gives an appealing look to the side profile of the sedan. The rear houses a new enclosure for the taillights for a faux LED effect, redesigned reflector lights on the rear bumper and concealed exhaust tips that gives a fresh look but fails to leave any lasting impression.

Verna is the smallest in dimensions - (4370mm L,1700mm W,1475mm H) when compared to the cars in its segment - Maruti Suzuki Ciaz (4490mm L,1730mm W,1485mm H) and Honda City (4440mm L, 1695mm W, 1495mm H).  The wheelbase is also the least in the Hyundai Verna (2570mm) when compared to Maruti Ciaz (2650 mm) and Honda City (2600 mm).

Engine Performance

Hyundai Verna comes with the same refined engines used in the outgoing model  -1.4 litre and 1.6 litre engine in both petrol and diesel options. The 1.6-litre engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and 4-speed automatic transmission. The manual variant is capable of producing max power of 123 PS and 155 Nm of torque. The petrol engine is one of the most refined engines that offers low NVH levels, and using the smooth 5-speed manual gearbox gives an overall good driving experience. 

The smooth and refined engine still lacks the performance of the 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine in the new Honda City. The 1.6 litre diesel is a refined one but not as powerful as the outgoing one. The diesel motor comes alive past 1800 rpm and may be a worrisome factor in city driving conditions. Brakes are also too good with ABS kicking in almost earlier than expected.

Overall, Hyundai Verna lacks the outright performance as seen in the Honda City even with larger displacement and higher output power. Verna may still be a better choice in low-speed city conditions but on a highways, it is the Honda City that shines as a gem. Verna with a peak power of 123 PS is the most powerful, better than the Honda City amd Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.

Ride and Handling

Verna's new suspension is more absorbent adding a lot of softness and confidence at high-speed rides which were not found in the outgoing model. The steering is responsive and seems intact with the front wheels. Verna now feels more settled and stable, and gives a flatter ride. Overall, Hyundai has improved the ride and handling on the Verna which is well capable of tackling potholes and bumps.

Verna has a better suspension setup than the Honda City which has stiffer suspension and is a bit on the noisy side. Ciaz has the best suspension setup among the three and offers the best slow speed ride in its segment.

Interior - Features & Specifications

Much of the cabin remains the same with the two-tone dashboard with the same top notch quality materials. Some new features are included:1GB memory to store songs, an 'Ergo Lever' added on the front passenger seat, reach adjust function for the steering wheel, revised armrest with twin cup holder for the rear passengers and rear parking sensors in the top-end variants. Verna still gets the keyless go, cooled glove box, electrically foldable external rear view mirrors, steering mounted audio controls with Bluetooth connectivity, automatic climate control and alloy wheels in the higher variants.

Safety Features

Dual airbags, ABS with EBD and immobilizer comes as standard fitment across all variants. Verna scores over the City and Ciaz by offering six airbags in the top-end variants. City though gets an additional cruise control and sunroof in the top-end variants.

Verdict

Hyundai Verna is not the driver's car but definitely, pleases other passengers inside the cabin. Verna's new mature look may get some head turns but one cannot neglect the other strengths - good refinement, a feature-rich cabin and improved ride/handling that makes Verna a well-rounded car.
