Hyundai Verna EX trim misses out on any form of infotainment system but a certain amount of comforts and conveniences are on offer with height adjustable driver seat, all 4 power windows, tilt adjustable steering wheel, keyless entry with foldable key and Type C charging ports at the front and rear.
Hyundai Verna EX trim comes in with safety features which include 6 airbags, 3 point seat belts for all passengers and ISOFIX child seat anchors along with ABS and EBD. It also sports rear parking sensors, rear defogger and timer. The Verna EX misses out on electronic stability control which is offered on higher trims while it also does not get Hyundai Smartsense Advance Driver Assist System (ADAS) that is exclusively offered on SX(O) and SX(O) Turbo variants.
Engine and Transmission
Hyundai Verna EX draws its power via a 1.5 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine offering 113 hp power at 6,300 rpm and 143.8 Nm torque at 4,500 rpm mated to a 6 speed manual transmission. This engine is said to return 18.6 km/l mileage. It gets Mcpherson strut suspension in the front and suspension coupled torsion beam at the rear while braking is via disc and drum brakes at the front and rear respectively.
Hyundai Verna is based on the company’s Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy drawing inspiration from the global Elantra and Sonata. It gains in dimensions over its outgoing counterpart measuring 4,535mm in length as against 4,440mm seen on its earlier model while width is at 1,765mm, 36mm wider than 1,729mm width on the older Verna.
It stands 1,475mm in height with a 2,670mm long wheelbase relating to more cabin space, while boot space is at 528 liter, fuel tank is of 45 liter capacity and ground clearance stands at 165mm. Bookings of the new 2023 Verna have already crossed the 8,000 mark in a short time. Hyundai is confident that their new Verna sales will be twice that of older Verna sales.
