This powerful engine can generate an impressive maximum power output of 105.5 at the rate of 6300rpm and the maximum torque of 135.33Nm at the rate of 5000rpm. Both these figures look very good mainly due to the fact that this is just a base variant but still offers this level of performance. It also has a 5 speed gearbox transmission which doesn’t look too good in theory but in practicality it certainly outshines with its acceleration and quick gear change. This is a front wheel drive. It also has the best in segment fuel economy of 17.43kmpl (ARAI). The engine is specifically designed to give a dynamic performance . One downside is that the engine is neither super charged nor turbo charged.

As the Hyundai Verna 1.4 VTVT is the basic model, not much is expected in the safety department but still Hyundai was able to add some safety features. The front fog lamps produce a wide, bar shaped beam of light in foggy conditions to improve the road visibility. Also the clutch lock system is a good feature which doesn’t allows the ignition until the clutch is pressed so to prevent jerk start. The central locking system, child safety locks, central locking, and the immobilizer are some other safety features. There are side impact beams present but no front beams for protection from the sides of the car. Another good addition is the centrally mounted fuel tank so that it shall be protected in case of any crash either from front or from side.
Hyundia has certainly done their homework in the comfort area. Some of the comfort features include electrically adjustable ORVM’s, driver information display, tilt functioning steering, back seat pockets, vanity mirrors, and many other things also. Also one thing worth mentioning is that Hyundai Verna 1.4 VTVT comes with a shift indicator in manual transmission model which is a great for saving fuel and for gaining quick acceleration also. There is also very efficient alternator management system. The AC is very powerful and can brought chills too. Plus the 2 DIN music system which comes with 4 speakers and tweeters works very well .
