New Verna performance

All-new Hyundai Verna will have two petrol engine options. There’s the 1.5-litre MPi petrol engine that churns out 113.4 bhp of max power and 144 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or intelligent variable transmission (IVT). Second engine option is likely to draw more attention, as it’s a new 1.5-litre turbo petrol unit. It generates 158 bhp and 253 Nm, which are best-in-segment performance numbers. The turbo petrol motor has transmission choices of 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT.

New Verna may not have a strong hybrid powertrain option, as available with Honda City. However, its best-in-segment turbo petrol motor can appeal to folks who prioritize sporty performance. Only concern could be fuel efficiency, which has not been revealed yet. For reference, Honda City eHEV has certified mileage of 27.13 kmpl. New-gen Verna packs in both cosmetic touch-ups as well as a new range of hi-tech features. It is expected to be launched in the price range of Rs 10 lakh to Rs 19 lakh.
