December 13, 2016: Hyundai introduced the mid-life update of the Verna last year in February and is now dubbed as Verna 4S. The sedan is available in the price band of Rs 7.60 - 13.08 lakh. Like before, it largely competes with the Honda City and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz along with other midsize sedans. The 4S comes with a fresh new face, while the side and the rear profiles were largely unchanged; save for the new graphics for the taillamps and subtle changes to the rear bumper. The facelift has also added new feature including six airbags (re-added). While a few features were added this year as well, for example, the touchscreen infotainment system with rearview camera. Mechanically, the Verna 4S is available with four (two each of petrol and diesel) engine options. On the petrol front, it gets a 1.4-litre which produces 107PS and 135Nm of torque, while the 1.6-litre is good for 123PS and 155Nm of torque. The diesel variants are available with a 1.4-litre CRDi and a 1.6-litre CRDi motor choices. The former produces 90PS and 220Nm of torque, while the latter musters 128PS and 260Nm of torque. The present model is due for a generation change and Hyundai has revealed the next-generation Verna at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show in China. The sedan is expected to go on sale in China in the coming months and will be introduced in India in 2017. Base-spec petrol variant available at Rs 6.99 lakh and for all other variants (petrol and diesel), a discount of Rs 1 lakh is being offered in December 2016.
I bought Verna 1.4 VTVT, white, in the month of Oct, 2016. I had reviewed the Honda City and Ciaz as well but vehicle offered at price I found best for Verna. Although Honda City is accepted by people as no.1 in performance but if one go for performance and look both together then many may give Verna priority, that is the reason many of my colleague having Honda city, desire to drive Verna due to its style. Vehicle look is not doubt admiring best in this class even if Honda City owner too feel V read more 35
The Hyundai Fluidic Verna is the 4th Generation Accent which has been renamed as Verna for Indian customers. After having played bad with the Hyundai Verna Transform, they finally managed to take out the most beautiful feather out of its cap, the All New Hyundai Verna Fluidic. It later turned out to upset the Honda City and the Vento on one side, and the Linea, SX4 and Rapid combined, on the other.
The Verna has the most compact outer footprint, but still manages to have a wheelbase of 2570mm, read more 2
My name is Vikas Mathur and I bought a Verna in December 2016. My model is 1.6 CRDI SX and it has been a pleasure to drive. The car has not asked for a lot of maintenance, though the service has not been exactly cheap. The engine is very responsive and with time, has become even better. The car is smooth to drive and even soaks up uneven roads well. On long drives, the seats are very comfortable and the AC also works very well.
But the space inside the car sometimes feels less. The legroom for read more 78
The Hyundai Verna was supposed to replace the Hyundai Accent in 2006. However, Hyundai decided to sell both cars side by side and the 1st generation of the Verna was born. In its first avatar, its design was a bit of an acquired taste and didn’t find too many takers. A few facelifts later, the Fluidic Verna came into existence. The design was well received, the feature list was large and the car was priced well. In a time when the segment was ruled by the Honda City, this car shook things up to temporarily take the top spot. Honda had a trick up their sleeve and introduced the diesel variant, taking back the City’s crown. In a bid to win back market share, the Hyundai Verna 4S has been released. Does it still have what it takes to threaten the City?
Things We Like in Verna
One of the best-looking sedan in the segment. The futuristic fluidic design is quite a stunner.
Loaded with features: projector headlamps with daytime running lamps, keyless entry etc.
Offered with one of the most power diesel engine in the segment. The 1.6 litre diesel offers 126 bhp and 260Nm of torque.
Things We Don't Like in Verna
No AC vents at the rear. Much cheaper Grandi10 gets it!
Bouncy suspension. Passengers get thrown about over broken roads.
Rear seats lack under-thigh support and rear passenger headroom is abysmal.
Stand Out Features
Ergo Lever. It is one of the best features on offer and will be loved by chauffeur driven customers.
One of the safest cars in the segment. Offered with an option of up to 6 airbags, ABS & ESP.
The Hyundai Verna is a well-loaded package and offers a lot of unique features. The car’s features, neutral handling characteristics and Hyundai’s good after-sales network make it a safe, but well-packaged option that is in some ways, even better than the Creta.
"If you want a driver’s car though, we recommend looking at a European alternative."
The diesel Verna is a better than the Honda City, while the petrols are closely matched. If you want a driver’s car though, we recommend looking at a European alternative.
