  • BS6 Hyundai Verna to get a petrol engine by Feb the latest.

  • The expected launch is before the 2020 Auto Expo.

  • Verna will be a petrol-only model until facelifted version is launched.

  • The petrol engine will be offered with both manual and automatic gearboxes.

The Hyundai Verna is scheduled to get a new petrol engine as part of the manufacturer’s shift to the BS-Vl emission norms. While the norms will be implemented in April 2020, the BS6 Hyundai Verna is expected to be launched by the start of February, before the 2020 New Delhi Auto Expo.

The Verna’s BS Vl petrol engine will be a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated motor. This engine generates 115 bhp and 144 Nm in the Kia Seltos, so we do not expect those figures to change much for the Verna. It will replace both the BS-lV petrol engines that the Verna currently has, a 1.4-litre and a 1.6-litre petrol engine. There will be no BS Vl diesel engine launch at this point. The 1.5-litre petrol will be made available with a six-speed manual gearbox as well as a CVT automatic. 

Hyundai will instead save the BS Vl diesel engine for when it launches Verna’s mid-life refresh in the middle of 2020. The Verna will thus be a petrol-only model for a few months. We expect the diesel motor from the Seltos to power the Verna as well, with the same options of six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed torque converter automatic. 

The Hyundai Verna competes with some very strong brands in the Indian market, and in 2020 it will go up against the Honda City Facelift, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Skoda Rapid, the new Volkswagen Vento, and Toyota Yaris
