We had reported earlier that Hyundai will soon update the Verna sedan and as expected, the faint updates are now on offer when you book your car at a dealer. Hyundai has mostly modified the car’s interiors to improve the functionalities within the car.
The changes are mostly confined to the interior, which include back-lit buttons for the power windows and the steering mounted controls. The headrests on the rear also drop a number and now feature two in the place of three. Currently, neither the Honda City nor the VW Vento provides the third head rest and hence in that front the Verna still provides the same level of features as its competitors.
The top spec Verna gets redesigned alloy wheels while the spare type now gives away the alloys for standard steel ones. The base variant of the Verana uses 15 inch steel wheels and will be used to replace the 15 inch alloys found on the spare tyre. The LED lamps though, that was expected to be housed onto the headlamp assembly has been dropped out of the feature list.
Hyundai has ensured that the improved features have not escalated the price of the Verna and for that they have cut down on features that still keep them on par with its competitors. The company is hoping to cash in further on the upcoming festive season and improve the sales despite being the undisputed winner in the D1 sedan segment. With the Fiat Linea facelift lined up along with the improved Fiesta, the Verna may need to do more than just back lit buttons to stay at the top of the segment.
