Hyundai Verna will come with two petrol powertrain choices – 1.5L NA petrol and 1.5L turbo-petrol. The former puts out 115 PS against 144 Nm, while the latter will develop 160 PS and 253 Nm. On the other hand, it is 4,535 mm long, 1,765 mm wide, 1,475 mm tall, and has a 2,670 mm wheelbase. The boot volume stands at  528 litres – highest in the segment.
