South Korean carmaker Hyundai has launched the facelifted Verna, with prices starting from Rs 9.30 lakh and going all the way up to Rs 15.10 lakh, ex-showroom New Delhi. Along with the design of the car, Hyundai has also overhauled the powertrain options for the sedan.

Under the bonnet, the Verna can now be had with either a 1.5-litre petrol engine (115PS/144Nm), a 1.5-litre diesel engine (115PS/250Nm) and a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine (120PS/172Nm). The first two engines have been borrowed from the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta. Apart from a 6-speed manual, they can be had with a CVT and 6-speed torque converter for petrol and diesel, respectively. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine from the Venue can be had with a 7-speed DCT only. All engine options are BS6 compliant.

Coming to its design, Hyundai has made some substantial changes for a facelift. The cascading grille at the front has a new design with a chrome honeycomb pattern replacing the horizontal slats seen on the outgoing Verna. The headlamps, fog lamp housing and the air dam underneath the grille has also been revised. The tail lamps feature minor changes and the rear bumper has also been tweaked.

The interior has a new colour scheme in the SX(O) Turbo variant, however the design changes are limited to a new touchscreen and a semi digital instrument cluster. The Turbo variant comes with a black interior with red contrast elements in places.

Some of the additional features it gets include a tyre pressure monitoring system, a sound system tuned by Arkamys, Bluelink connected car-tech, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rear disc brakes, a sunroof and LED headlamps. The turbo-petrol variant also gets paddle shifters.

In its new avatar, the Hyundai Verna will continue to take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the upcoming Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and the Skoda Rapid.
