Hyundai Motors will launch the facelifted 4S fluidic Verna on February 18. The updated Verna gets minor cosmetic upgrades and a few changes inside the cabin too.
Among the changes, the 4S Fluidic Verna gets new headlamps, grille, bumper, fog lamps and a redesigned bonnet. Changes at the rear are quite minimal with two large reflectors on the bumper and the new tail lamps.
Inside the cabin, it might get a new seven-inch touchscreen with navigation and also the music system with internal memory function as seen on the Grand i10 and Xcent.
Expect not many changes in the powertrain department and it will continue to get powered by the same engines as on the outgoing model. A 105bhp 1.4-litre engine and the other a 121bhp 1.6-litre mill. Both these come paired to a five-speed manual gearbox. There are two oil burners a 1.4- and a 1.6-litre that produce 89bhp and 126bhp of power respectively and come mated to a six-speed manual. Hyundia might do away with the four-speed autobox and offer a six-speed automatic gearbox with the Verna 4S.
While we aren’t sure of the mechanical changes in the car, we expect a few tweaks to the suspension for better ride and handling. It might be priced close to the outgoing model and it will take on the likes of Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento and the Nissan Sunny.
