Hyundai Verna is one of the most popular executive sedans in the country and has been for quite a long time now. Verna has always been a good-looking sedan with all the latest features and powerful engines. The main selling point of the Verna has to be its feature-rich cabin. In a bid to further build upon that, Hyundai has now added another important feature to the Verna. The sales figures for the Hyundai Verna have been consistently good for the last few months and it is always on the heels of the segment leader, Honda City. Let us take a look at the features and engine options for the Hyundai Verna that is currently on sale in our market.
Hyundai Verna- New Features
The S+ and SX trims of the Verna have received Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is a welcome addition to the already long features list of the executive sedan. However, this feature has been given a miss on the top-spec SX(O) variant which is almost shocking. But otherwise, the Hyundai Verna comes equipped with features like an 8-inch Digital Infotainment System with Bluetooth and other Connectivity, Connected Car Tech for a ton of Remote Features, Digital Instrument Cluster, Cruise Control, Steering Mounted Audio Controls, Arkamys Premium Music System, Voice Recognition, Ventilated Front Seat, Leatherette Upholstery, Paddle Shifters, Electric Sunroof, Wireless Phone Charging, Height Adjustable Driver Seat, Automatic Climate Control, Air Purifier, Smart Trunk, SLiding Front Centre Console Armrest and much more.
