9 Features Hyundai Verna Gets But Honda City Doesn’t | V3Cars

The Hyundai Verna 2023 is the latest C2-segment sedan in India and it rivals the recently-updated Honda City facelift. In this article, we list 9 features that the Hyundai Verna offers but the Honda City doesn’t.

Features Hyundai Verna Gets Over Honda City

1. Height Adjustable Seatbelts

The top variants of the new Verna offer height adjustable seatbelts for front passengers. The Honda City, on the other hand, doesn’t offer height-adjustable seatbelts even in the top variants. A height-adjustable seatbelt lets people adjust the height of the seatbelt for better comfort and safety.

2. Rear Disc Brakes

The top-spec turbo SX(O) turbo DCT variant of the new Verna offers rear disc brakes whereas the Honda City offers drum brakes. The availability of rear disc brakes improves braking performance, especially in panic braking situations.

3. Front Parking Sensors

While both the new City and Verna offer rear parking sensors and camera, the Verna also offers front parking sensors. Front parking sensors give you an idea about the clearance up ahead and help in parking efficiently.

4. Electric Parking Brake

The top-spec SX(O) turbo DCT variant of the new Verna offers an electronic parking brake whereas the City comes with a manual parking brake. An electronic parking brake cuts down the physical effort of engaging and disengaging the parking brake as it switches off automatically once you start driving.

5. Premium Sound System

The top variants of the new Verna offer a Bose sound system, which includes 4 speakers, 2 tweeters, a front dashboard speaker and a subwoofer. The Honda City, on the other hand, comes with an unbranded sound system with 4 speakers and 4 tweeters.

6. Powered Driver Seat

The new Verna is the only sedan in its segment to offer a powered driver seat. However, it is worth mentioning that the electronic adjustment only works for sliding and reclining functions whereas height adjustment remains a manual affair.

7. Heated And Ventilated Front Seats

The new Verna is also the first sedan in its segment to offer heated and ventilated front seats. Since both sedans come with leatherette seat upholstery, seat ventilation becomes a necessary feature to have a comfortable experience, especially in the summers. Unfortunately, the Honda City lacks seat ventilation, even in its top variants.

8. Drive Modes

The new Verna offers drive mode select that changes the responsiveness of the engine and transmission depending on the mode selected. The Verna offers the option to choose from Eco, City and Sport mode whereas the City doesn’t offer any drive mode.

9. Cornering Lamps

While both the new Verna and City offer LED headlights, the new Verna also offers cornering lamps. Cornering lamps light up the corners of the road while you make a turn. It makes driving at night safe and effortless.
