This is the first official photo Hyundai’s all new Vios beater, the Verna. The sloping roofline together with the coupe-like dynamic profile resembles that of its bigger brother, the I45. Hyundai Motor will stage the world-premiere of the new model at the 2010 Beijing Automotive Exhibition.

Developed with the Chinese market in mind., the new Verna is built on an all new platform at the Korean manufacturer’s plant in Beijing. The Verna is fitted with the new generation Gamma engine and is promised to deliver best in class fuel economy. It satisfies China’s step 4 fuel economy two years ahead of schedule. Featuring all-aluminum construction to shed off the kilos, the 1.6L DOHC Gamma delivers 90.4Kw@6300rpm and 155Nm of peak torque @ 4200rpm through a four-speed automatic transmission. I am wondering why the Verna has not been fitted with Hyundai’s latest six speed auto transmission instead. The base Verna is offered with the 1.4L edition of the Gamma , which puts out 78.7Kw@6300rpm and 135.4Nm@5000rpm. It comes with a choice of five-speed manual gearbox or four-speed automatic. Fuel economy for the manual option is rated at 5.7L/100km while the automatic version stands at 6.2L/100km. Both variants of the Gamma engine feature Continuous Variable Valve Timing.

The low floor platform and sloping roofline help to contribute to the Verna’s impressive fuel economy and aerodynamics. The usage of ultra-high tensile steel helps to enhance the overall stiffness of the car body for enhanced passenger protection in the event of an accident. Hyundai hopes to achieve a CNCAP 5 star rating with the new Verna.

The trunk has a capacity of 454L and can easily swallow up to four golf bags plus three small tote bags, making it a very practical day to day vehicle.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
