Hyundai Verna, the company’s most popular offering in the mid-sized sedan segment, competes with the Honda City and Maruti Ciaz. Loaded with features, offered in 12 variants, offered in petrol and diesel engine options and in two gearbox options, the Verna is in its 5th generation in India.
Compared to rivals, sales of Hyundai Verna are lower than that of Maruti Ciaz and Honda City. To bring a boost in their sales, Hyundai dealers are now offering exciting discounts on Verna of up to Rs 80,000.
Last month, Hyundai introduced the Verna Anniversary Edition at a base price of Rs 11.69 lakhs. Sold in the top spec SX(O) trim, new body colors and body kit were added. Setting this Anniversary Edition apart from the regular Verna are front and rear skid plates, black colored ORVMs, shark fin antenna, rear spoiler and a distinctive Anniversary Edition emblem.
Interiors of the Verna Anniversary Edition get a beige and black color scheme and an all black dashboard. Seating is seen in black leatherette as against a black and beige combination seen on its standard model.
The top spec SX(O) receives a sunroof, ventilated seats, 7.0” touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay while wireless charging is a special feature on the Verna Anniversary Edition that made its debut on the 2018 Creta facelift.
Hyundai Verna is powered by 1.6 liter, 4 cylinder petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine offers 121 bhp power at 6,400 rpm and 151 Nm torque at 4,850 rpm. The diesel engine is capable of 126 bhp power at 4,000 rpm and 260 Nm torque at 1,500 rpm. Both engines get mated to a 6 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic transmission. The Hyundai Verna competes with the likes of Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid.
