Hyundai has provided the Verna with three powertrain options: a 120PS/172Nm 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, a 115PS/144Nm 1.5-litre petrol, and a 115PS/250Nm 1.5-litre diesel. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual (standard for both the petrol and diesel units), an optional 6-speed automatic (for the diesel engine), and an optional CVT (for the petrol engine). The turbo-petrol unit only gets a 7-speed DCT.
The Hyundai Verna got a price hike of up to Rs 14,000 last month and currently retails from Rs 9.19 lakh to Rs 15.25 lakh (ex-showroom). It takes on the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid, and Toyota Yaris.
