[Image: vernanew.jpg]

New Delhi: Hyundai Motor India Limited today launched the all-new Fluidic Verna. The new Verna bears Hyundai’s new design philosophy of ‘Fluidic Sculpture’.

The Fluidic Verna boasts of futuristic looks, luxurious interiors, cutting-edge technology and premium appeal. Speaking at the launch of the much-awaited Fluidic Verna sedan, Mr. H W Park, MD & CEO, HMIL, said, “The Verna has been a trendsetter since it was first launched in 2006. We are confident that the all-new Fluidic Verna will create a new benchmark and raise the bar for the upper mid size cars in India. The launch today further reinstates our commitment to provide the best-in-class design, quality and technology to our customers here.”

Dynamic and Futuristic Design

The new Fluidic Verna pioneers a host of premium and futuristic design elements based on the Fluidic Sculpture Design Philosophy. The car’s futuristic design sports a coupe like side profile which is further refined by elegant and continuous character lines. On the front, the Verna displays the next generation hexagonal grille, eagle eye headlamps with wide air dam and distinctive ‘L’ shaped fog lamps that enhance the stance of the car.

The interiors have luxurious elements and textures including two-tone beige and black high gloss interiors with wood finish. One of the unique features of the Fluidic Verna is the cluster ionizer that improves the quality of air inside the cabin by producing ion-plasma that traps bacteria and other impurities and comes into operation automatically as the AC is switched on. The rear end of the car is fitted with dual chrome tipped exhaust which adds on to the sporty feel.

The centre front armrest comes with segment first sliding function, whereas both front and rear armrests have storage space. The car is loaded with fabulous infotainment system that supports Bluetooth connectivity and comes with features like Radio/CD/MP3/USB/Aux-in/i-Pod connectivity for unlimited music access. To make driving pleasurable in summers it has a Fully Automatic Temperature Control (FATC) system with a cooled glove-box.

Engine & Transmission

The new Fluidic Verna will be available with four engine options - 1.4 litre VTVT delivering 107PS@6300rpm of maximum power and 13.8Kgm@5000rpm of peak torque, the petrol 1.6 litre VTVT engine with 123PS@6300rpm maximum power and 15.8@4200rpm peak torque, the Common Rail diesel 1.4 litre CRDi with 90PS@4000rpm max power and 22.43kgm@1750 – 2750rpm of peak torque and the diesel 1.6 litre VGT CRDi, with range topping 128@4000rpm max power and 26.5kgm@1900-2750rpm of peak torque.

Both the 1.6 litre petrol and the diesel engines are mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission while the manual transmission option is available with all the four engine options. The super-efficient 1.4 litre petrol engine gives a mileage of 17.43 kmpl (ARAI figures) while the 1.4 litre diesel version clocks 23.5 kmpl, making the new Fluidic Verna the most fuel-efficient car in the segment.

Looks good and some improvement than the present Verna models. However, I read somewhere that the high end model costs around Rs.12 lakhs which I feel bit high in this segment and may be VolksWagon models may be more attractive and value for money in these price range?!
