The all-new 2017 Hyundai Verna has been launched at a starting price of Rs 7.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). With the new Verna getting a host of segment-first features, the Korean sedan is all set to take the crown back from the Honda City and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. Without wasting time, let’s take a quick look at how are its variants priced. 

Let’s take a brief look at the variants and their pricing (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Prudent to note that these prices will be valid for the first 20,000 customers only, following which, they will be increased:


Hyundai Verna


Verna E (Manual): Rs 7.99 lakh 

Verna EX (Manual): Rs 9.06 lakh 

Verna EX (Automatic): Rs 10.22 lakh 

Verna SX (Manual): Rs 9.49 lakh

Verna SX (O) (Manual): Rs 11.08 lakh  

Verna SX(O) (Automatic): 12.23 lakh 


Verna E (Manual): Rs 9.19 lakh 

Verna EX (Manual): Rs 9.99 lakh 

Verna EX (Automatic): Rs 11.39 lakh 

Verna SX (Manual): Rs 11.11 lakh 

Verna SX+ (Automatic): Rs 12.61 lakh 

Verna SX(O) (Manual): Rs 12.39 lakh 

 The new Verna gets two engine options - a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel. The petrol engine makes 123PS of power at 6400rpm and 151Nm of torque at 4850rpm, while the diesel engine produces 128PS of power at 4000rpm and 260Nm of torque from 1500rpm all the way up to 3000rpm. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

If you are looking for an automatic, then Hyundai offers a 6-speed torque converter in the EX and SX(O) petrol-powered variants and the EX and SX+ trims with the sedan powered by the diesel mill. On paper, the new Verna has the most powerful engines on offer when compared to its competition, which includes the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and the Skoda Rapid. But will that alone propel it to the top of the segment? Well, I’d say it needs to look good too. Fuel-efficiency figures come in at 17.70kmpl for the petrol MT (earlier 17.01kmpl) and 15.92kmpl for the petrol AT (earlier 15.74kmpl), while the diesel delivers 24.75kmpl and 21.02kmpl for the MT and AT respectively (earlier 21.9kmpl and 19.08kmpl respectively).


Hyundai Verna

Speaking of looks, the new Verna is based on the Russia-spec Hyundai Solaris. The Verna for India gets a sporty design like its bigger sibling, the Hyundai Elantra. The third-gen car features a trapezoidal grille, bi-xenon headlamps with daytime running lights and projector fog lamps. As you moves to the side, you will notice the strong crease that runs under the window line and merges with the tail lamps, and the coupe-like silhouette like the older car. While the E and EX (manual) variant gets 15-inch steel wheels, the EX (automatic) gets alloy wheels of the same size. The SX and SX(O) variants get 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The new Verna measures 4,440mm in length, longer than the previous-generation by 65mm. It’s also wider than before by 29mm, measuring 1729mm now. The wheelbase is also longer than before by 30mm and that should free up more space at the rear. At the rear, the raked roofline and the LED tail lamps give the Verna a very distinct look when compared to its predecessor. Check out our first drive review here: 2017 Hyundai Verna: First drive

On the inside, the Verna continues to use good quality plastics and materials. There’s a 7-inch touchscreen system that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options. The top-end variant features on-board navigation and cooled front seats like the Elantra as well. The rear seat occupants get air-con vents and a USB charging port. Standout features of the top-end variant include electrically operated sunroof, hands-free boot opening function, a curtain for the rear windscreen and rear parking sensors with camera. ABS and dual airbags are standard across the range while the top-end variant gets 6 airbags.
