If life is saved, then you will get lakhs! 65 features for your safety in a car worth 10 lakhs, the look is also amazing

New Delhi. The all-new Hyundai Verna has been launched with prices starting from Rs 10.90 lakhs till Rs 17.38 lakhs. The manufacturer started accepting bookings last month, however, the company has said that the deliveries will begin in the first week of April 2023.

The all-new Hyundai Verna is marginally longer than its rivals, with the length increasing to 4,535mm, giving it a segment-leading wheelbase of 2,670mm. For reference, the Volkswagen Virtus and Skoda Slavia have a wheelbase of 2,651 mm, while the new Honda City has a wheelbase of 2,600 mm. The size increase has resulted in segment-leading boot space – 528 liters – and segment-best width of 1,765 mm, which should offer more shoulder room than its rivals.

Dhansu Built Quality
The launch of the Verna was always highly anticipated ever since the standout looking Fluidic Verna was introduced in 2011, and this one is no different. Front and rear, the new Verna bears little resemblance to its predecessor. The new Verna will get 6 airbags, ABS and EBD as standard across all variants. However, only the top-end variant with the DCT gearbox gets all four disc brakes.

Like the new Honda City, the Verna is also offering ADAS on some variants. It will get front and rear radar detectors along with front camera, which is not offered by the competitors. There are many features like ADAS Forward Collision Warning and Avoidance Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Lane-Keep Warning and Blind Spot Assist Warning. The new Verna will be available in four trims – EX, S, SX and SX (O) – and seven color options, namely Typhoon Silver, Fiery Red, Starry Night, Titan Grey, Abyss Black, Atlas White and Tellurian Brown.

2 engine options
The all-new Hyundai Verna has two engines on offer – a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol. The NA petrol delivers 115hp and 144Nm and is offered with a 6-speed manual and an IVT automatic. Hyundai claims a fuel efficiency of 18.6kpl (MT) and 19.6kpl (IVT).

The turbo-petrol engine generates 160hp power and 253Nm torque and gets a 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT gearbox with paddle shifters as an option. While this engine is more powerful, Hyundai also claims that it will be more efficient than the naturally aspirated powertrain with fuel efficiency figures of 20kpl for the manual and 20.6kpl for the DCT. Hyundai is not offering a diesel engine with the Verna.
