The new-gen Hyundai Verna sedan was recently spotted in India sans camouflage ahead of its official launch later this month. Slated to go on sale in India on August 22, 2017, the new Verna offers a host new design and styling updates along with a bunch of new smart features. Hyundai dealers across the country have already started accepting bookings for the car for a token of ₹ 25,000 and the deliveries are likely to begin by the end of this month.
As you can see in these latest spy images, the 2017 Hyundai Verna has gone through a complete makeover and now comes with an all-new face. In line with the company’s latest design language, the new Verna gets some signature Hyundai elements like the new cascading grille, large sweptback headlamps, and an aggressive bumper design. With the new Verna, we will get a set of projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights along with circular foglamps enclosed in chrome surrounds. The other spy shot is of the new LED taillamps that have been inspired from to the Elantra. You get a very similar wraparound taillights cluster with triple pentagon shape pattern.
Like the previous generation model, the new-gen Hyundai Verna is also built on the company’s versatile Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy that is clearly noticeable from the new bolder profile and subtle character lines. The company has also released a couple of teaser images and a teaser video for the new-gen Verna, giving us a sneak-peek of the new design, the styling of the cabin and interior along with the exterior profile.
The cabin of the new Hyundai Verna takes inspiration from the bigger Hyundai models and will get a host premium features. The driver oriented dashboard is expected to get a 7-inch touchscreen system on the higher variants that will support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with dual airbags and ABS as standard across all trims.
Powertrain wise nothing will change and the car will continue to feature the same set of 1.4-litre petrol, 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4-litre U2 CRDi diesel and 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engines. Power figures will also remain unchanged while transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic for the petrol models and 6-speed and a 4-speed automatic gearbox for the diesel models. The competition will continue with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and the Skoda Rapid.
