Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), India’s first smart mobility solutions provider and largest car exporter since inception, has announced a significant upgrade to its iconic Verna mid-sized sedan and Creta compact SUV. Both models have strengthened Hyundai's leadership position in their respective segments over the years, with hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers.

Speaking at the virtual unveiling event, Tarun Garg, Director, Sales, Marketing & Services, said, "Verna and Creta occupy a strategic spot in our portfolio as they represent the aspirations of new-age Indian buyers. We are committed to continuously enhancing their appeal with industry-leading features, technologies, design and performance. The latest refreshes underscore our promise of progressing mobility and delivering happiness to customers through these beloved models."

2024 Verna upgrade

The 2024 Hyundai Verna price, as well as the features, now boasts Hyundai's advanced BlueLink connectivity suite with over 50 other features controlled via smartwatch or the BlueLink mobile app. Owners can remotely start/stop the car, control the climate, find the parked location and send a destination to the navigation.

Interiors welcome premium Neoprene seat fabric on SX and SX(O) trims. Ambient lighting with new colour options creates a relaxing atmosphere. A powerful Bose premium 8-speaker system debuts across variants for an immersive audio experience.

Exteriors sport refreshed styling with sportier dual-tone alloy wheel designs and newly introduced dual-tone exterior colour options. Safety is bolstered with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) and Hill Assist Control (HAC) as standard fitment.

2024 Creta upgrade

The premium compact SUV now offers an Air Purifier with an AQI display on the dashboard for enhanced cabin air quality, keeping in mind the Hyundai Creta on-road price, which reflects its value. Wireless chargers and front-ventilated seats are newly introduced for the comfort and convenience of SX and SX(O) variants.

Convenience is taken up a notch with the addition of auto tailgate and smartphone wireless mirroring. Creta is now safer than ever, with rear parking sensors and cameras as standard across most trims. A sunroof makes its Creta debut on select variants for an open-air driving experience.

The powertrain options also see strategic enhancements for improved real-world fuel efficiency and performance. The 1.5-litre diesel now gets Multi Port Fuel Injection (MPFI) technology along with Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) for reduced emissions.

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) on the 1.5-litre petrol variant has undergone software tuning for smoother gear shifts. Customers can choose from 7-speed DCT on SX(O) Turbo for an engaging drive.

Such segment-leading innovations have made Creta the most preferred compact SUV in India, with over 8.5 lakh customers since its launch in 2015. Similarly, Verna continues breaking its records, with cumulative sales surpassing the 5 lakh mark.

Deliveries of the refreshed 2024 Verna and Creta will commence in June 2024 across Hyundai's dealership network of over 265 facilities across India.
