2020 Hyundai Verna facelift launched with three BSVI engine choices including 1.0L Turbo petrol with a slew of exterior and interior updates in its new avatar

Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has finally launched the facelifted Verna in the domestic market and it has been priced at Rs. 9.3 lakh for the entry-level variant and it goes all the way up to Rs. 15.1 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom) for the range-topping version. The new Verna is offered in S, S+, SX, and SX(O) trims.

Only a few months ago, Hyundai introduced the second generation Creta and it shares its engine lineup comprising of 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel units with the Verna. Instead of the Creta’s 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol, the Verna is retailed with a smaller 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol motor.

The base S variant is only available with the 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 115 PS and 144 Nm. It is connected to a six-speed manual gearbox while the S+ can be had with a 1.5-litre four-pot diesel generating 115 PS and 250 Nm. The powertrain is mated to a six-speed manual transmission on the S+ grade.
