The new 2017 Verna has come up with an all-new platform, superior performances, a new set of powerful engines, a host of ultra-modern features and a striking price tag which seems appropriate for a mid-sized sedan in India. According to Hyundai, the new Verna for the Indian market is based on the K2 platform which is made of the high-strength steel and will boost the crash-worthiness and rigidity of the car. Similarly, peak torque for the 123hp, 1.6-litre petrol, and 128hp 1.6-litre diesel engine will be 245Nm.
In terms of mileage, the Diesel 1.6 VGT MT is capable of hitting 24.75 Kmpl, while the Petrol 1.6 VTVT MT is capable touching speed of 17.70 Kilometer per liter. Similarly, the Diesel 1.6 VGT AT can run up to 21.02 Kmpl and the Petrol 1.6 VTVT AT can run 15.92 Kmpl. Up to now, the midsize sedan market in India is primarily dominated by cars like Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. But with the introduction of Hyundai Verna’s new model, Hyundai is expected to take control over the market soon.
