The Beijing Auto Show 2010 is drawing a bit of attention with really nice vehicles being launched by most of the global majors and recently Hyundai has come up in the news with the launch of 2011 Hyundai Verna which could be the next future car.
The car is the result of a 5 year extensive research including exhaustive surveys and trend studies to meet the local requirements of the Chinese market and is targeted at the China’s most important C1 segment.
Euisun Chung, Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor said at the 2010 Beijing auto show,”Today is a really special day for us, not only because we’re launching a new car, but because it’s one of the very few times we’ve done a world-premiere outside of Korea: And we chose to do it right here in China because it’s our way of recognizing how important our Chinese customers are to us.In 2009 we posted a 94 percent Year-on-Year growth in China and have sold over 2 million cars since arriving in 2002. We are not losing any momentum, continuing to expand our lineup in China with our most stylish and advanced models like the all-new Verna and our compact SUV,”
2011 Hyundai Verna Specifications And Features
The car has been built on a completely new platform having a very eye-catchy roofline and projects the looks of a coupe along with sportiness and a futuristic design.
The 2011 Hyundai Verna is powered by an new generation MPFI Gamma Gasoline Engine(complying with China’s Step 3 fuel economy regulations) evolved to make the vehicle fuel efficient without sacrificing the performance and provides best-in-class fuel economy.
Each and every part of the engine is constructed of Aluminium to minimize weight. Technically speaking the 1.6 Litre DOHC Gamma Gasoline engine develops a maximum power of 90.4kW @ 6300 rpm and a maximum torque of155Nm @ 4200 rpm and is coupled with a 4-speed Automatic Transmission gearbox.
Making the car a bit more affordable the base model will come equipped with a 1.4L DOHC edition generating 78.7kW @ 6300 rpm and 135.4Nm @ 5000 rpm and comes with five-speed manual gearbox or four-speed automatic choice and Fuel efficiency has been estimated as 5.7l/100km for the manual & 6.2l/100km for automatic variant (1.4L with Fuel Economy Package).
The car is more stylish and stable owing to the low overall height and ‘longest-in-class’ wheelbase without having sacrificed even an inch for the passenger cabin.The cabin is in fact bigger than any of its foes and it has a 454Litre of boot-space which could accommodate atleast 4 golf bags.
The credit for the extremely stiff structure goes to the Special ultra-high tensile strength steel adopted for superior protection from crash situations. Due to the rigid structure the suspension has been fitted well and imparts better ride and handling characteristics and eliminates vibration and noises.
