After all the spyshots and teasers, Hyundai India has officially launched the facelift version of its popular mid-size sedan called the new 4S Fludic Verna. Prices for the 4S Verna Fluidic Verna range between Rs. 7.74 – Rs. 10.15 lakhs for the petrol and Rs. 8.94 – Rs. 12.19 lakhs for the diesel variants.
An updated front-fascia gives the 4S Verna Fluidic Verna a more grown-up look.
In terms of aesthetics, the Verna facelift gets redesigned headlamps with projector lights, a new dual-slat chrome grille, a new front bumper with new foglights, and a new hood. While the side profile remains identical to the fluidic Verna, the rear gets some tweaks in the form of a new bumper, new reflectors and LED effect for the taillamps.
Inside, the range-topping variant gets a 6-speaker audio system with 1 GB in-built storage, while climate control, multifunction steering wheel, and Bluetooth connectivity are standard, too. Inclusion of an Ergo lever enables the rear seat passenger to slide the front passenger seat forward/backward. Safety kit includes ABS as standard across all variants. The top model does retain 6 airbags too.
Changes at the rear include a new bumper, new reflectors & LED effect for the taillamps.
Tech specs remain the same with a range of four engine options – 1.4-liter petrol and diesel, and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel. The petrol units include a 1.4 that produces 106 BHP & 135 Nm of torque, and a 1.6 producing 121 BHP & 155 Nm of torque (1.6L has an optional 4-speed automatic). The diesel range has the 1.4 that produces 89 BHP & 220 Nm of torque, and the 1.6 producing 126 BHP & 260 Nm torque.
All the engines are mated to 6-speed manual gearbox, while the 1.6L diesel gets an optional 4-speed automatic. The diesel engines get a minor improvement in fuel efficiency. It’s 24.8 kmpl (vs 23.5 kmpl) for the 1.4L and 23.9 kmpl (vs 21.9 kmpl) for the 1.6L (19.08 kmpl for the 1.6L AT). However, rear disc brakes have silently been removed from the Verna.
