    On the whole, as a base variant, the Verna S+ diesel offers all standard and some added features. It doesn’t lack anything major, but for some buyers the lack of features such as height-adjustable driver seat and electrically foldable ORVMs might be felt. Nevertheless, for the buyers who have a strict budget to follow and wish to go for the Verna diesel, the base S+ variant is a perfect choice that will keep them happy with its features. 


    Hyundai Verna S+ vs SX Variant 

    The Hyundai Verna SX diesel-MT comes for an additional premium of Rs 1.4 lakh over the S+ variant.

    According to our internal data, Verna SX offers great value for its additional premium of Rs 1.4 lakh owing to its number of added features. Because of its long feature list, most buyers would be happy with the SX variant, and thus, the Verna SX 1.5 petrol-manual variant is our top recommendation. 

    Hyundai Verna SX vs SX(O) Variant 

    Hyundai Verna 1.5 diesel-manual SX(O) top variant is priced at Rs 14.03 lakh and costs Rs 1.9 lakh more than the SX variant.

    The SX(O) variant offers some added safety, entertainment, functional as well as style features over the SX variant. In terms of safety features, the biggest add-on are curtain airbags, which are available only in this variant. Apart from this, the other important added safety features include - Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and LED Headlamps. 

    As Hyundai has already announced earlier, all its new car models will be coming with connected car tech, which means added internet connectivity related features. In the case of the Verna, only the top SX(O) variant gets this connected car tech. 

    Apart from these, this variant also boasts of additional features like Ventilated Front Seats, Telescopic Steering, Adjustable Rear Headrests, Diamond-cut Alloys and Leather Upholstery.

    As per our internal data, for its additional features, the SX(O) variant’s additional premium of Rs 1.9 lakh is a bit pricey. This is pretty disappointing, as despite some important safety features, we are not able to recommend the SX(O) as a value-for-money variant for the buyers.

    As per our internal data, its added features do not justify the SX(O) variant’s additional premium of Rs 1.9 lakh. This is disappointing, as we can't recommend the SX(O) as a value-for-money variant for the buyers, despite the fact that it offers some important safety features.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Hyundai Verna Diesel Should You Buy?

    After analysing all the variants of the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift, it is very apparent that whether you wish to go for the manual or the automatic variant, the SX variant offers the best features and value package on the whole. Thus, the SX variant is our top recommended variant. In the Verna diesel manual range, if your budget is restrained, then you can also go for the base S+ variant, as it covers almost all the must-have features. In the case of both manual and automatic transmission variants, the SX(O) variant is quite expensive.
