The exact engine specifications for the Verna’s 1.0-litre turbo-petrol mill remain to be known but we do expect it to produce the same figures as the Venue 1.0 turbo-petrol which can put out 120 HP / 172 Nm of torque. Other powertrain option for the new Verna facelift will be 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel, all of which will be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard.
