Hyundai Verna has always been a prominent player in the mid-sized sedan segment in the Indian market. It has churned decent moolah for Hyundai in this highly competitive segment, which comprises of heavyweights such as Maruti Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and others. The sales of the Verna sedan dipped concerningly over the past few months as the design was outdated and it missed out on some tempting features as compared to its arch rivals Honda City and Maruti Ciaz, both of whom received a facelifted version with fresh styling and modern features. Therefore, the South-Korean automaker has introduced the next-gen Verna sedan with new styling and sophisticated features to regain the lost ground.

The new sedan comes in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with manual as well as automatic transmission. It has been offered in four trim levels: E, EX, SX, and SX (O). The 2017 Hyundai Verna is based on a new architecture, while flaunting a new design and boasting of several first-in-segment features.



Underpinning the all new K2 platform as its elder sibling Elantra, the new 2017 Verna comes with sweptback Projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights (DRLs) and Hyundai’s traditional Chrome Cascade front grille with horizontal chrome slats. The sedan also gets projector foglamps, while the side profile reflects the perfect amalgamation of sportiness and elegance.

The coupe like silhouette and the sloping window chrome beltline is a decent sample of exorbitant South-Korean styling. The high-end variants rides on 5-spoke 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, while the lower variants come with 15-inch silver wheels. As for the rear end, it gets two-piece LED tail lamp cluster, Shark fin antenna and dual-tone bumper with black inserts. In fact, the drag coefficient is as low as 0.308 which makes it way more aerodynamic than before. The sedan comes with a boot space of 480 litres, which is nearly 30 litres more than the preceding model.



The 2017 Hyundai Verna’s cabin in finished in a dual-tone black and beige upholstery, while it carries several first-in-segment features. The standout features of the new sedan include ventilated front seats which can be turned colder during hot summer days. The ‘Smart Trunk’ feature gets a special mention as the boot automatically gets unlocked and locked when the driver stays within 1-metre range for more than 3 seconds with Smartkey.

As for infotainment, the next-gen Verna boasts of a 7.0-inch Audio/Video/Navigation (AVN) touchscreen system, which also serves as rear view camera and is compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirrorlink. Speaking of first-in-segment stuff, we also have an Arkamys-developed Smart Surround System with 6-speakers for the first time in Verna sedan. Other premium features include FATC with Cluster Ionizer, Electric Sunroof, Rear AC Vents, Voice Recognition, 3.5-inch Mono TFT-LCD instrument cluster, Rear adjustable headrest, Sliding front centre console armrest, Cruise Control, Engine Start/Stop button, Hyundai Auto Link etc.


 Engine & Transmission

The 2017 Hyundai Verna comes in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with the same set of engines. The petrol variants are powered by a 1.6L Gamma Dual VTVT engine which generates maximum power of 121bhp at 6400rpm and peak torque of 151Nm at 4850rpm. It can be availed with either of the 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. As for the diesel variants, they get their power from a 1.6L U2 CRDi engine which belts out 126bhp at 4000rpm and 260Nm between 1500-3000rpm. Identical to its petrol sibling, it, too, is available with any of the two 6-speed transmissions.


Performance and Handling

The ride and handling of the 2017 Verna is better than the predecessor due to the all new K2 platform. The company has also worked extensively on the suspension system and NVH levels to improve comfort and performance. The handling is also decent due to the light-weight steering wheel.

 Braking and Safety

The next-gen Hyundai Verna gets disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. In addition, it is laced with a plethora of exceedingly reliable braking systems such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) as standard features. The body structure of the new sedan is developed with 50 percent of Advanced High Strength Steel, which is an additional increase of 37 percent over the preceding model. As for the safety of the occupants, the 2017 Verna comes several avant-garde features in form of 6-airbags, front projector foglamps, ISOFIX (Child Restraint System), Impact sensing Auto Door Lock, Cornering Lamps, Reverse Parking Sensors, and Reverse Parking Camera.


Hyundai Verna petrol variants offer a decent mileage. The manual and automatic variants deliver an ARAI Certified fuel economy of 17.70kmpl and 15.92kmpl. On the other hand, the diesel manual and automatic variants return mileage of 24.75kmpl and 21.02kmpl (ARAI Certified), respectively.



Verna has a boot space of 480L

The boot space of Hyundai Verna compares with that of Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid, Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The boot space of Hyundai Verna is 465 litres, whereas the boot space capacity of Volkswagen Vento is 454 Litres. On the other hand, Hyundai Verna boot space competes to Skoda Rapid with 460 Litres of boot space, and Honda City having 510 Litres of boot. Generally, it’s considered a great deal if the boot space capacity of a car is beyond 300 Litres, whereas, boot space below 300 litres isn’t recommended if your primary goal of buying a car is boot space.

Provides perfect comfort to the driver and rear passengers for carrying water bottles and other amenities

Rear seat armrest cup holders

Relax and enjoy the ride with your favorite beverage that you can place in convenient cup holders of different sizes




The new Verna looks like a scaled down variant of the Elantra sedan which was unveiled last year. The new generation sedan comes with some modern elements on the inside like a new touchscreen infotainment system, but the biggest change that it has received come has to be the new automatic transmission which is much more responsive and smoother compared to the previous unit. Lastly the competitive pricing definitely will also help this sedan to compete with its rival quite comfortably.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Hyundai Verna


When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    The Verna facelift may not pull your heartstrings with its design, but it sure is a good package. Perhaps, it is one of the better built sedans in its segment, gets a number of segment-first features and there are enough and more engine/transmission options one can choose from.
