Hyundai Verna

In other words, the Hyundai Verna is a new avatar of Accent and comes loaded with a range of new generation features and functionalities. Its stylish exteriors and powerful Performance on the road makes it one of the best available options in the sub Rs 7 lakh segment. However, the moderate sales figures of this model had forced the company to launch a face-lifted version of this car in the Indian market named as Hyundai Verna Transform.

On the other hand, the petrol version comes equipped with a 1599cc, 16 valve DOHC engine which generates a peak power of 103Ps at 5,500 rpm along with a top torque of 14kgm at 3000 rpm. Four out of these five variants comes fitted with a manual transmission gearbox while the fifth one (1.5 SX VGT AT) carries an automatic transmission gearbox.
