• The 2023 Hyundai Verna will have ADAS

That aside, there’s a host of safety features on offer for the sedan 

With just seven days left before the covers officially come off the 2023 Hyundai Verna, the carmaker continues its teaser campaign by revealing all the dope on the safety kit that will be on offer. And it’ll be extensive which includes the addition of a crucial bit of kit that was glimpsed in teasers.

The important addition is of course Hyundai’s SmartSense Level 2 ADAS advanced safety assist suite. This safety suite will comprise features like forward collision warning, forward collision avoidance assist, blind spot warning and avoidance assist, lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, adaptive cruise control, high beam assist and rear-cross traffic collision avoidance assist. 

Aside from this, the new Verna will also come with six airbags as standard, all disc brakes, ESC, VSM, front parking sensors, an electronic parking brake as well as hill start assist. We already know from earlier teasers it has a packed feature list including a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and digital driver’s display, heated and ventilated front seats and an eight-speaker Bose sound system.

On the outside, the 2023 Verna goes aggressive with its design judging by the teaser images. Some cool bits include a split-lighting setup comprising wide LED headlights and DRLs, parametric connected LED tail lamps, sharp shoulder lines, and new alloy wheels. 

While the Verna retains its 115PS 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor with the option of six-speed manual and CVT gearbox options, there will be a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine likely pushing 160PS like the Alcazar. It will get the option of either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT gearbox. 

Bookings for the 2023 Verna are already open for a token amount of Rs 25,000. It will take on the Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the recently facelifted Honda City in the market.
