In India, the name Hyundai is synonymous with trust. As per The Hindu’s Business Line, Hyundai ranks number one in terms of customer satisfaction. And if you are looking to purchase a Hyundai vehicle, the Next Gen Hyundai Verna is coming soon!
As of March 2023, Hyundai has sparked interest among potential buyers with a set of teasers for the all-new next-gen Verna sedan. It is expected that it will go on sale by May 2023.
It is a long wait, but you can pre-book your next-gen Hyundai Verna starting at Rs. 25,000. Currently, this is what Hyundai has disclosed about this much-awaited car.
Hyundai Verna sedan: Design features
As per the teasers, the new Hyundai Verna sports a refreshing new design. It is unlike any Hyundai vehicle currently available in Indian markets and is inspired by several latest-gen Hyundai sedans sold overseas.
Similar to the Hyundai Grandeur sedan sold in North America, China, and France, the next-gen Verna sedan has a striking nose with a double-layer headlamp setup. The car’s grille is approximately as wide as the car itself.
Car aficionados have noticed that this feature looks inspired by the Tucson SUV and the current-gen Elantra sedan. It also incorporates elements of other Hyundai models like the Staria MPV and has a full-width horizontal light bar. This nifty design feature also serves as the LED daytime running lamp.

Hyundai India announced the powertrain details for the new sedan – two 1.5-litre petrol engines.
The first engine is an all-new 1.5-litre direct injection turbo-petrol, which churns out around 160hp. It is expected to come mated to either a 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed manual.

Note that the sedan will no longer be available with a diesel engine. Hyundai has also confirmed that the new Next Gen Verna’s engines will be E20 (20 percent ethanol blend) as well as RDE (Real driving emission) compliant.
