New Delhi: By May, the 2023 VERNA sedan from South Korean automaker Hyundai will be available in India. It is now reserveable for Rs. 25,000. The company also released teaser pictures of the upcoming vehicle. According to the images, it will have a sloping roofline, sleek headlamps, and a full-width taillamp. Under the hood, there won't be any diesel engines.
The following-generation VERNA will be produced by Hyundai annually in an estimated 70,000 units. This suggests that the business anticipates strong demand for it.
There will be four trim levels available for the four-wheeler: EX, S, SX, and SX (O). Both domestic and international markets will sell it. Here, it will compete against the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Volkswagen Virtus, and SKODA SLAVIA.
The new Hyundai VERNA will have a long bonnet, a wide grille with many creases, a sloping roofline, and sleek headlamps linked by a full-width LED light bar. It will have alloy rims, chrome window trim, and ORVMs on either side of it. The rear will be adorned by LED taillamps that wrap around and have crystal-like inserts. Nine colors will be available for purchase.
A 1.5-liter MPi gasoline engine and a 1.5-liter Turbo GDi gasoline engine will power the 2023 Hyundai VERNA. Three different transmissions—a 6-speed manual, a 7-speed DCT, and an IVT gearbox will be available.
The interior of the upcoming Hyundai VERNA is anticipated to be roomy, accommodating five people, and equipped with USB ports, keyless entry, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, and a multifunctional steering wheel.
The ADAS features, ABS, EBD, and multiple airbags should all be in place to protect the passengers. Additionally, it might include a twin-screen infotainment setup with support for the most recent connectivity features, similar to the IONIQ 5.
The 2023 Hyundai VERNA's pricing and availability information for India will be released at the time of the vehicle's launch. It should, however, be more expensive than the current model, which starts at Rs. 9.64 lakh (ex-showroom).
