Hyundai is all set to launch the new Verna on August 22. The company has already started accepting bookings and is promising early deliveries for those who book it before August 21.
The new Verna comes with an all new ‘Super Body Structure’ which incorporates new sheet metal which ensures better structural rigidity, improved space and maximum safety. Hyundai claims that the new structure also improves NVH levels as the drivertrain has been mounted differently and the foam insulators are packaged even better.
The all-new K2 platform in the fifth generation Verna improves gets a revised suspension while the steering has been tuned differently, which were the issues with the earlier iteration. Even the front wheel caster angle has been changed for better steering feedback.
In terms of the looks, the Verna is clearly inspired by its larger sibling, the Elantra. The headlights and taillights, as well as the grille resembles the larger sedan. And the Elantra is quite a looker.
The engines have been carried over from the Creta and the Verna too offers the same choices for customers. The 1.6-litre dual VTVT engine makes 121bhp and 154Nm of torque, while the 1.6-litre U2 CRDi VGT engine develops 126bhp and 260Nm.
