With the generation upgrade, the sedan has undergone several major changes, starting with its new new powertrain options

Hyundai Verna: old vs new

The sixth-generation Hyundai Verna has only recently become available to buyers at impressive introductory prices. Compared to its predecessor, the new Verna is much bigger, gets a new powertrain and also packs a bunch more premium features. To help you get a clear picture of how similar or different the two are, we have compared them on multiple parameters in detail:

Hyundai has opted for a revolutionary approach to the redesign of the new Verna. While the older model didn’t have many over-the-top elements, the sixth-gen sedan gets a much bolder front fascia, thanks to the long LED DRL strip and the “Parametric Jewel” design for the grille. The new Verna is more reminiscent of the latest-gen Elantra sold globally than its generation lineup.

Although the sedan has lost out on fog lamps (its headlights get cornering functionality), it still does get multi-reflector LED headlights. Another new addition to the face of the Verna is the radar for the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

In profile, the fifth-gen Verna looked sober, thanks to the straight lines running from the front fender to the rear. The new model, in comparison, is full of sharp cuts and creases, reminiscent of the current Tucson, and its sides also show the longer footprint and the fastback-like design of the sedan. It gets 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels (Turbo variants get blacked-out wheels with red brake callipers).

At the back as well, the new Verna is miles apart from the older model. Where the latter had a clean appeal with wraparound LED taillights, the new model’s rear looks busier due to the fang-like connected taillights and the geometric elements in the bumper.

Here’s a look at their dimensions:

No change





Except for its height, the new Verna is bigger than the fifth-gen model in all dimensions. This growth is likely to have opened up more room in the cabin.

Like the outside, the inside – with the generation upgrade – is a big step up for the sedan. Hyundai has made the new Verna’s cabin feel a lot more premium by giving it sleeker AC vents, more soft-touch materials, a two-spoke steering wheel and silver accents all around.

The Verna continues with two cabin theme options: dual-tone (black and beige) as standard and all-black with red accents for turbo variants. Its highlight, though, is the dual display setup (including a digitised instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen).
