The range-topping SX(O) is your only option if you want more premium features like ADAS and heated and ventilated front seats

Hyundai Verna

The new Hyundai Verna has been loaded with a few segment-first and feel-good features such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), ventilated and heated front seats, and a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen system (only for the N.A. powertrain). However, if you want all of these and more, your only choice is the range-topping SX(O) variant of the compact sedan. Let’s find out if it’s worth the extra premium:


1.5-litre N.A. Petrol

1.5-litre Turbo-petrol






Rs 14.66 lakh

Rs 16.20 lakh

Rs 15.99 lakh

Rs 17.38 lakh

Why Pick The Verna SX(O)?

If you are looking for the most powerful and feature-rich compact sedan in the market today, it’s the new Verna’s top-spec SX(O) that should be your pick. It’s also the only variant in which you can enjoy and use the newest features of the sedan including the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen (with the N.A. powertrain) and heated front seats (cooling functionality has been retained too). In terms of safety too, the SX(O) gets ADAS, rear disc brakes and electric parking brake (latter two are only available with Turbo DCT version).

If you want the new Verna with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), you have to take the petrol-CVT option or the turbocharged engine option. For adaptive cruise control, you have to extend to the Verna SX(O) Turbo DCT.

Let’s check out what it has to offer:

What Could Have Been Better About The Verna SX(O)?

With the generation upgrade, the Verna is now at par with its competition in terms of improved space, performance and features. That said, we do feel Hyundai could have taken the opportunity to give it some more conveniences such as rear window sunshades, a rear centre headrest, a 360-degree camera view, and dedicated phone seat back pockets. We also feel the carmaker should have provided it with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in the SX(O) variant. Also, the adaptive cruise control function should have been offered on the petrol-CVT SX(O) with the rest of the ADAS suite.




Covers only the basics with just enough focus on safety; consider only if on a strict budget with plans to accessorise


The true entry variant with useful extra features at a justified premium


Recommended variant, especially for CVT automatic or as entry-level turbo variant


Pick it only if you want a top-spec petrol-CVT or turbo variant, loaded with feel-good features and ADAS.
