The next-gen Verna will be launched in India in the second half of 2017

Underneath the next-gen Verna will be a mild-hybrid system similar to its direct rival Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, which comes equipped with Suzuki’s SHVS mild-hybrid tech. The Ciaz sales boosted after the introduction of mild-hybrid technology to its diesel variants. The Korean car maker is likely to follow the market leader’s footsteps with the upcoming Verna.

The mild hybrid model might come equipped with an idling start/stop system, a larger battery and an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG). While the vehicle is braking, the ISG converts the kinetic energy of the rolling wheels into electricity and stores in the battery, this system combines it with the power from the engine to help the vehicle during acceleration.

Engine options for India will be the existing range of 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre, petrol and diesel options

When the car comes to halt due to traffic signal/jam, is in neutral gear, the engine will shut down automatically after few seconds. To restart, the driver must press the clutch pedal, the engine starts immediately for continuing the journey, however, the driver’s seatbelt has to be locked, driver door and bonnet of the car should be closed. The mild hybrid system can be manually switched-off by pressing a button somewhere in the dashboard.
