Check out the 2023 Hyundai Verna 1.5 IVT mileage review, improved comfort and features


auto news desk, We recently drove the manual transmission variant and the DCT gearbox variant of the new Hyundai Verna turbo petrol and it was a very pleasant experience. Immense power and great dynamics are one of the standout features of the new Verna. But a lot of buyers would prefer the 1.5 MPI NA petrol variant with the automatic. On paper this would be the best price ever for this car, but is it really that good? We used the car for a week to find out.

Firstly, the non-turbo Verna gets standard wheels, which are not black. But overall the styling of this car is quite attractive. Like the roofline, we liked its fastback and many creases / lines, in which low slung has also been given. It is one of the most attractive cars to come at this price. The non-Turbo variant with the 1.5 MPi gets dualtone cream/black interiors which look more premium than the all-black variant of the Turbo, but are more prone to getting dirty.

Powertrain & Mileage
We will discuss here about its engine and driving experience. This engine is mated to a 6-speed MT or 8-step CVT or IVT transmission, which produces 115bhp power and 144Nm torque. It achieves great power delivery and refinement. Though the spike and turbo rush are missing, it has been tuned very well with the CVT. It is the best combination of CVT/1.5L engine. Eco drive mode is the best, there is no shortage of power. Its linear power output is best for daily use.

The top-end Verna CVT costs over Rs 16 lakh and the turbo DCT costs a lakh more. The turbo engine mated to a DCT gearbox generates massive power output. However, there are many people who want a stylish sedan with a smooth powertrain with lots of features, then they can go for IVT or CVT. The color and design of its interior is quite attractive. The CVT petrol is equipped with its good mileage and comfortable driving experience. As far as the sedan is concerned, it is better than the previous model.
