Hyundai has added a new CX trim to its lineup of the Verna sedan. Aimed to take on the newly launched Honda City, Hyundai plans to cater to a wider range of audience with this new variant. Positioned between the EX and SX models, the CX will be available for Rs 8.07 lakh and Rs 9.28 lakh for the 1.4-litre petrol and diesel versions respectively.
The new Hyundai Verna CX will get safety features like driver airbag, ABS, rear disc brakes. It also gets a few creature comforts like steering mounted audio controls, climate control, a reversing camera screen integrated with the rear-view mirror, parking sensors and alloy wheels.
The engine options will be carried forward from the existing range. The 1.4-litre petrol engine develops 105bhp and 138Nm of torque while the 1.4-litre diesel unit produces 89bhp and 224Nm of torque. Both the engines send power to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Rest of the mechanicals and the architecture of the car remain the same.
Hyundai had recently introduced a few updates to the Verna with the top-end models getting features like projector headlamps with LED daytime-running lights, redesigned alloy wheels and illuminated switches. The Verna has always been a value-for-money offering and this new variant only increases the Korean manufacturer’s footprint in the C-Segment, which has been seeing tough competition from the likes of the Maruti SX4, Volkswagen Vento, Ford Fiesta and the newly launched Honda City
