Hyundai to update Verna line-up in India

South Korean auto maker is reportedly planning to update its Verna sedan line-up for the Indian market to position the model better against its rivals like Honda City and Maruti Ciaz.

The company, which updated all four variants of Verna last year, had discontinued the top-spec SX (O) trim. Now, a report of Auto Car India reveals that the South Korean maker will relaunch the top SX (O) trim with minor tweaks across all trims of the Verna.

To be offered in four variants -- Base, S, SX and SX (O), 2016 Hyundai Verna will get a choice of two petrol and two diesel engine options in all the variants and all will come with dual airbags as standard. While the based variant of Verna will get power from 1.4-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engines mated to a manual gearbox, the Verna S will be powered by 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine, mated to either a six-speed manual or a four-speed automatic gearbox.

Coming to the features offered in these Verna models, the base variant will now get cooled glovebox; the S trim will house 2 DIN audio systems. In the Automatic variant of Verna S, there are 15-inch alloy wheels whereas the manual version sits on steel wheels. The Hyundai Verna SX will get 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine under the hood and will feature Audio-Video Navigation, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, front fog lamps, power folding wing mirrors, an AVN system and a shark-fin antenna.

The new and relaunched the Verna SX (O) trim will come with side and curtain airbags, leather seats, steering, gearknob and armrests. It will also feature push-button start, telescopic steering and a 'Supervision' instrument cluster. Powering the Verna SX (O) will be the 1.6-litre petrol and diesel and the diesel will be offered with a four-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel disc brakes.
