Hyundai Verna N-line to be launched in the coming months
The all-new Hyundai Verna, which was launched in March of this year, has achieved remarkable success as the leading mid-size sedan in the country, capturing around 40% of the market share. It has surpassed its competitors such as the Honda City, Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus, and Maruti Ciaz.
To further capitalize on this momentum, Hyundai may introduce a N Line variant of the new Verna. The N Line variants from Hyundai are renowned for their sporty aesthetics. In India, Hyundai currently offers N Line versions of the i20 and Venue, while international markets have a wider selection of N Line variants, including the i10, i20, i30, Elantra, Sonata, Kona, and Tucson.
A fully camouflaged Verna prototype has been sighted during road tests, with the typical red accents on the front and rear bumpers, albeit not clearly visible due to the full-body camouflage. Additionally, the test vehicle features red brake calipers, which are a distinctive feature of Hyundai’s N Line variants.
However, it’s worth noting that the turbo trim of the Verna already comes with red brake calipers. Furthermore, the test mule is equipped with diamond-cut alloy wheels, which are offered with the SX and SX(O) trims, whereas the turbo variants come with blacked-out alloy wheels. The rear of the test vehicle appears to have darker tail lights.
Hyundai Verna N-Line to get growly exhaust and stiffer suspension
These details suggest the possibility of a Hyundai Verna N Line variant. The final version might feature unique elements such as a sportier bumper design, prominent exhaust pipes, and a different set of alloy wheels. Similar to other N Line models, the Verna N Line would incorporate red accents in the interior, such as on the seat upholstery, steering wheel, gear lever gaiter, and ambient lighting. N Line badging would be present both inside and outside the vehicle.
Hyundai Verna N-line to be powered by 1.5L Turbo-Petrol Engine
Under the hood, the Hyundai Verna N Line variant is expected to be powered by a 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine, generating 160 PS of maximum power and 253 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options would include a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT. Other Verna variants offer the choice of a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine, producing 115 PS and 143.8 Nm, paired with either a 6-speed manual or an IVT gearbox.
The equipment list for the Verna N Line would largely resemble that of the respective standard variant. Notable features include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a color TFT instrument console, a range of connectivity options through Hyundai Bluelink, a Bose premium sound system, voice commands, front ventilated and heated seats, a smart electric sunroof, a wireless charger, and an integrated air purifier. Safety features would include hill start assist control, electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, front and rear parking sensors, a rear camera with guidelines, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
