Here’s an acceleration test between the new-gen Honda City and 2020 Hyundai Verna. Go through the video embedded below to know the amazing results.
Honda City is among the popularly known C2-segment sedans in our market. The car was first introduced in India in the late 90s and quickly became hit among the enthusiasts for its looks, handling balance and ride. At a later stage, the carmaker plonked in the V-TEC mill that made the City the top-selling sedan in its segment. Recently, the Japanese carmaker has launched the fifth-gen City in the Indian market, and it directly competes with the likes of Hyundai Verna. A few months back, the latter was introduced with new BS6-compliant engine options and subtle cosmetic updates on outside and inside. Here’s a recent acceleration test video, where both the cars are compared on the basis of 0-100 kmph timings.
As you can see in the video that three different rounds were conducted and their timings were recorded. Moreover, during the test run, two passengers were sitting inside the car with air conditioning turned on to check how both the sedans perform in the real world conditions. In the first try, the new-gen City took 14.40 seconds while the Hyundai Verna took 14.23 seconds to reach the 100 kmph mark. In the second attempt, The City accelerated from 0-100 kmph in just 13.87 seconds, while the Hyundai Verna does the same job in 13.80 seconds. As one can see that the time took by both these cars has been decreased almost by a second. The last round of the acceleration test turned out to be quite shocking as fifth-gen City jumped ahead of Verna by reaching the 100 kmph mark in 13.27 seconds.
On the other hand, the 2020 Hyundai Verna took 13.80 seconds to reach the 100 kmph mark. Therefore, the results are quite clear, the all-new Honda City is faster than the 2020 Hyundai Verna. Mechanically, both the sedans are powered by a 1.5-litre, NA, gasoline engine paired with a CVT. The 1.5-litre petrol engine offered with the fifth-gen Honda City puts out power and torque outputs of 121 PS and 145 Nm, while Verna’s unit develops 115 PS and 144 Nm.
