A batch of spy images of the 2020 Hyundai Verna reveal some important details of the interior of the new model
After launching the new-gen Creta, Hyundai Motor India Ltd is now gearing up to introduce a heavily updated Verna by the end of this month. The carmaker has already started accepting booking for the new model and they’ve also confirmed that the refreshed car will feature Hyundai’s Blue Link connected car tech. This connected car technology performs functions like remote vehicle start, locate my car, smart-phone app link and much more. A batch of new images that surfaced internet recently have divulged some information on the updates that the cabin of the upcoming model would carry.

Talking about interior updates, the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system offered with the ongoing model will be replaced by a larger unit, and will offer smartphone connectivity options like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The second big update is the addition of a new fully-digital instrument console, which will replace the semi-digital unit offered with the pre-facelift model.
The same instrument cluster was first seen on the Hyundai ix25 mid-size SUV (Chins-spec Creta) and is expected to be offered with the new-gen Hyundai i20, which will hit the Indian shores by the end of this year. The dashboard of the upcoming Verna facelift also features faux wood accents instead of the chrome trim seen on the outgoing version. Moreover, the A/C vents are new, too, and look quite similar to the ones offered on the 2020 Hyundai Creta.

The major update in the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift will come in the form of three new BSVI-compliant engine options. The powertrain options consist of 1.5-litre petrol and VGT turbo diesel motor, which churn out 115 bhp of power output each. The petrol mill will come coupled to a 6-speed MT or CVT, while the oil-burner will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional 6-speed torque converter automatic unit. The new sedan will also feature a potent 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine which will offer 120 bhp of power output. Transmission duties will be handled by a 7-speed DCT. Once launched, the 2020 Hyundai Venue will compete with the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Skoda Rapid and upcoming new-gen Honda City.
