The new Verna 4S the face-lift model of the Fluidic version that was launched in 2011. The front looks a lot like the Sonata and other than that, nothing much has changed in the car. Interiors are carried over as well and have minor updates. They look good but don't offer the same space as most of the rivals (City and Ciaz for example). Also, rear air-con vents are still missing on the update. The Verna 4S continues to be powered by four engine options: 1.4-litre petrol - manual only 1.4-litre diesel - manual only 1.6-litre petrol - manual and automatic 1.6-litre diesel - manual and automatic The engines remain unchanged and we test drove the largest selling option, the 1.6 diesel. Hyundai has worked the low end punch of the engine (response at lower rpm) and the new Verna now feels slightly more eager in slow moving traffic. Outright acceleration remains impressive. Noise levels are well controlled too. On the inside, the Verna 4S features a high quality interior as seen in almost all of the Hyundai these days. The two-tone design theme with darker upper parts is a nice touch whereas the faux wooden inserts impart a classy look without being tacky. In terms of comfort and space, while the front seats offer adequate support, the rear bench feels a tad cramped in comparison to some of the rivals. Also, missing rear air-con vents are a complete letdown for a car in this segment. The front fascia of the Verna 4S adorns a dominating wing shaped grille with two horizontal chrome slots, new bigger Sonata-esque headlamps with projectors and revised bumper with Boomerang shaped fog lamps. All of the design bits gel in together perfectly, imparting a premium look to the vehicle. The addition of tastefully designed 16 diamond cut alloy wheels for the higher versions is again looks attractive. Apart from the front, the rest of the design has not changed much from previous year model, although, the rear bumper is now revised with integrated reflectors and a blackened lower part. The tail lamps have been changed slightly to impart an LED effect, too. Overall, the Verna 4S is a contemporary design that will be a hit among young buyers for sure!
