We have seen spy shots of the upcoming Verna multiple times. Now, Hyundai has shared first official teasers of the new Verna, which will be launched sometime next month. Bookings have also opened in India for a token amount of Rs 25,000
New Gen Verna 2023 will only be offered in a choice of petrol engine options. 1.5 liter petrol turbo and 1.5 liter MPi.

It will be mated either to a 6MT of an IVT gearbox. All these powertrains are RDE-compliant eco-friendly engines that are also E20 fuel ready.

4 variants will be on offer with new Verna. These include EX, S, SX and SX(O). It will get 7 Monotone and 2 Dual tone exterior colour options including the 3 new monotone colours – Abyss Black (New), Atlas White (New), Tellurian Brown (New & Exclusive).
2023 Hyundai Verna Design, Features
From the teasers, we can see the new design for dual-tone diamond cut alloy wheels that look striking. Front fascia seems to be inspired by recently unveiled Tucson carrying the Sensuous Sportiness design language. Rear section gets a horizontal LED tail-light design with attractive-looking slim LED bars extending towards the centre.
It looks slightly larger than the current Verna. This might be due to the fact that All New City, Slavia and Virtus are larger products than C-segment sedans of yesteryear like Ciaz and City. On the inside, we expect Hyundai to shower every possible feature it can.
It will get features like climate control, a sunroof, a large touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a fully digital instrument cluster, a powered driver seat, ventilated front seats and more. It will also get ADAS, first in segment.
