As cornonavirus continues to spread, the new car launches are bound to get delayed including the new Hyundai Verna and Tucson facelifts. While the former is slated to go on sale on 26th March, the latter is set to hit showrooms in April. The official launch date and details of both models are yet to be revealed by the carmaker. Booking of the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift were commenced in the second week of this month.
The updated Verna will be made available with three BS6-compliant engines – 1.5L petrol, 1.5L diesel and 1.0L GDI turbo petrol. The naturally-aspirated 1.5L, 4-cylinder gasoline motor makes power worth 113bhp with 144Nm, while the 1.5L, 4-cylinder oil burner delivers 113bhp with 250Nm.
The turbo petrol motor, which is borrowed from the Venue, is good enough for 118bhp and 172Nm of torque. Transmission choices will include a 7-speed dual clutch automatic (turbo petrol variant only), a 6-speed torque converter automatic (diesel variants only), an iVT automatic and a 6-speed manual (standard).
The 2020 Hyundai Tucson facelift, on the other hand, will come with a 2.0L diesel and a 2.0L petrol engine option. While the oil burner delivers 182bhp, the gasoline motor pushes out 150bhp. The SUV can be had either with a 6-speed automatic gearbox or an 8-speed automatic transmission. There will be three driving modes – Eco, Comfort and Sport. The Tucson facelift will be offered in three trims – GL 2WD, GLS 2WD and GLS 4WD.
Both facelifts will come with Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car technology offering several features under different categories such as vehicle relationship management, location based services, safety, security, alert services, artificial intelligence and remote access. The 2020 Hyundai Verna and Tucson facelifts have received subtle cosmetic changes giving them a refreshing look. Interior have also been revised with a pack of new features.
