Speculation – Two diesel engines on the new Verna?


Shrawan Raja,

I’m the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

We’ve received spyshots of the new Verna testing near the Chennai plant from our reader Reuben and along with it some speculation on the drivetrain options. Indian Autos Blog speculates the new Verna can be strapped with two diesel engines – 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter producing between 90bhp and 115bhp.

The 1.6-liter diesel engine might be the chosen candidate to receive the 4-speed Automatic Transmission which our reader got very close to in January. Overseas markets get the new 6-speed automatic but its chances in India are slim.

The 1.4-liter diesel engine might come from under the i20’s hood with a 6-speed manual transmission. It will form the basic variants in the new Verna range. The 1.6-liter could be an all-new unit serving on the range topper.

The new Verna is expected in India by the end of April this year. Perhaps Hyundai should offer two petrol engines producing over 100bhp to flame the VW Vento and Honda City.

If Hyundai ends up offering four variants on the new Verna, it’s almost certain that the existing Verna will be laid to rest. We have to wait for an announcement from Hyundai before drawing to any conclusion.
