To justify the lower price tag, Hyundai Verna’s new base variant is available with less equipment than the former entry-level S variant. The E trim misses out on the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity support system. Moreover, the sunglass holder and USB fast charger are unavailable on the new base variant.
Apart from these omissions, Hyundai Verna E’s feature list will be similar to that of the S trim. It comes with one-touch driver power window, manual climate control with rear AC vents, chilled glovebox, 2-DIN stereo system, adjustable head restraints, steering-mounted audio controls, and remote central locking. As the safety list goes, the Hyundai Verna E trim is equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, impact sensing automatic door unlock, speed sensing automatic door lock, engine immobilizer, anti-theft alarm system and more.
Hyundai Verna E will come with fewer features than the former base model

Mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox, the turbo petrol unit is capable of making 118 Bhp and 172 Nm. The only diesel engine, on the other hand, is good for 114 Bhp and 250 Nm. This engine is comes paired to either a 6-speed automatic gearbox or a 6-speed manual unit.
