Hyundai Motor India has silently updated select variants of the Verna compact sedan with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity technology. According to the company’s official brochure, both the mid-spec S+ and the SX variants of the car will now get the new smartphone connectivity feature. Earlier, both the models came with the wired versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Surprisingly though, as per the same brochure, the top-end SX(O) and SX(O) Turbo variants do not get Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
We did reach out to Hyundai Motor India to get more details about the updates made to the Verna sedan, however, at the time of publishing this story, our email remained unanswered. As far as infotainment and connectivity are concerned, both trim options currently come with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, along with voice recognition, front and rear speakers (SX trim also get front tweeters), Bluetooth connectivity, steering mounted controls and Hyundai iBlue app. The rest of the features offered with the S+ and SX variants appear to remain unchanged.
