Hyundai launches Verna RB 2011: specifications, prices

The South Korean car manufacturer, Hyundai has pulled up its socks to bring a new vehicle in its fleet of already existing models in India- Verna RB. The new Verna RB is the successor model of already existing Hyundai Verna. What’s the difference? We’ll let you know in a short while, but Hyundai has surely added some refurbishing changes in the design and features. The new Hyundai Verna RB will be competing with the other models in its segment and these include the upcoming Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Vento and Honda City.

Engine & Specifications

You will find four alternatives in the engine, two with the petrol version and two with the diesel. The 1.4L Gamma petrol engine will produce top power of 106bhp and torque of 135NM. Other petrol engine 1.6L Gamma generates power of 122bhp offering torque of 156NM.

The 1.4L CRDi diesel engine produces power of 90bhp with a maximum torque of 224NM. The strong 1.6L U2 diesel generates 126bhp of power with a torque of 259NM.


The new Hyundai Verna RB has taken good points on its exterior designing with hexagonally designed grill like its already existing models of i10 and i20. The L-shaped fog lights add a cherry on the top of cake! Verna RB receives an exclusive look with its arrow shaped engraved headlamps. Alloy wheels make the car a complete model. With body color outside rear view mirrors, door handles and bumpers, Verna RB receives bravura appearance.


Hyundai has worked well on interiors of Verna RB to impart it a much deluxe and rich appearance, far better than its forerunner.   The spacious cabin of Verna RB has outshined that of Volkswagen Vento and Honda City. With comfortable seats and enhanced legroom, Hyundai Verna RB receives good points here too. Automatic climatic control and electronic folding side mirrors are some of the features which will offer you comfort. Leather upholstery used in Verna RB is indeed of unmatched quality!

Comfort and convenience

The Verna RB is manufactured to offer all the comfort to Indian users. Parking sensors, push start/stop button, audio control on steering wheel and similarly added comfort features is something that will compel users to look forward to Verna RB. Hyundai Verna RB receives extra points in this area than its competitor Volkswagen Vento.


With the much powerful engine and better features, Hyundai Verna RB is great on performance and offer enhanced fuel efficiency.


Hyundai has always worked well on safety features. With Parking sensors, rear seat belts, Anti-lock Breaking System, 4 airbags and Fog lamps, Verna RB ensures the users’ safety and security.


The petrol engine gives around 17-18 KMPL mileage and the diesel engines offers you an impressive mileage of 23-24 KMPL.


The all new Verna RB is priced somewhere between 7.5 lakh to 10.5 lakh, depending upon the variant.


Hyundai Verna RB missed out on storage space and cabin height. For a person with a longer height, the car is a miss! The tail pipe has also not been very impressive.


All in all, in this price segment in sedan category, it is a good option to consider.
