Latest update: Hyundai Verna 2017 has surpassed 25,000 units sales mark since its launch 6 months back. Troubled by the GST row, Hyundai launched the Verna with smaller, 1.4-litre petrol engine option. The GST regime had slapped the ‘premium tag’ on the Verna due to its engine capacity and length being greater than 1.5-litre and 4-metre, respectively. The 1.4-litre petrol Verna price starts at Rs 7.80 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi). The 1.6-litre petrol and diesel versions of the Hyundai Verna offer a claimed mileage of 17.7kmpl and 24.75kmpl, respectively. With the smaller engine, the mileage figures read 19.10kmpl.


On 22nd August, 2017, Hyundai Motors launched the fifth generation of Hyundai Verna in the Indian subcontinent at the starting price tag of Rs. 7.99 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi). However, the company stated that this price will be applicable for its first 20,000 customers. Earlier this year, the all-new Hyundai Verna was unveiled at the Chengdu Motor Show. This is the fifth generation of the C-segment sedan, Hyundai Verna launched in India. Now, the all-new Verna is offered in 12 exciting variants and comes powered by 1.6 L petrol and 1.6 L diesel powertrains. Both, petrol and diesel engines are mated to either a six speed manual or a six speed automatic transmission.


The company has given quite a coupe like styling to the overall design of the Verna 2017. The character of the car resembles much alike the elder sibling, Hyundai Elantra. At the front, the sedan is bestowed with a hexagonal chrome-lined grille that gets horizontal slats. Moreover, the air dam comes with a honey comb mesh grille. The sides also appear to be very decent, and the chrome stripe sticked at the windows and door handles makes the appearance of the car more premium. At the rear, this time you will find sleeker wraparound tail lights that come with LEDs.

This time some of the dimensions of Hyundai Verna have increased compared to its predecessors. The length is now 4,380mm which earlier was 4375mm, the width is 1,728mm compared to previous model’s 1700mm, however, the height of the new Verna is slightly reduced this time to 1,460mm, which earlier was 1,475mm. Added to this, the auto-major has introduced four new colours options to attract the buyers.


The 2017 Verna has become more roomy this time and gets the dual tone beige and black treatment inside the cabins. There is a sense of luxury the moment you step inside with features like 1st in segment front ventilated seats, rear windsheild curtain, smart electric sunroof and rear AC vents. The fit & finish is of high-quality and the introduction of Eco Coating Technology that supplies fresh and odour-free air inside the cabins is something new.
