2023 Hyundai Verna | Designed To Perfection? | First Drive Review

It is radical in design; chances are more of you will love it, and less of you will hate it.


Looks, Features , Comfort


No Sun Shades, Interior Quality


The biggest highlight has to be the ADAS Level 2 safety features, with forward collision avoidance, blind spot collision warning, lane departure warning, and front collision warning being the most useful among the other 17  features, and all of that is possible because of the presence of cameras and radars. It is packaged with 65 + safety features, including the hill-start assist control, front parking sensor etc. Getting six airbags and an ISOFIX for the child passenger comes as standard. I loved the 64 colours of ambient lighting, and it's visible even in daylight in the door trims. The driver seats are electrically adjusted, and both the front seats are ventilated with hot and cold options. The HD infotainment with 10.25 inches has a lot of plastic around it and could have been designed more towards the bezel-less concept, but it is fluid and easy to operate. Another highlight is the 8 Bose speaker system with clear and rather loud badging of BOSE, and the sound immersive ness is moderate level, not the theater like which is claimed. What has been a significant change from the earlier Verna is the boot space; with 528 litres, it is enough to swallow much of your luggage needs.
