Back in April 2016, a concept version of what you see in the picture was showcased at the Beijing Motor Show. The new Verna has now been revealed before the debut at the forthcoming Chengdu Motor Show.
A first look reveals that the production model’s design stays true to the concept’s, except for some alterations done to the bumpers, headlamps, wheels and body panels so as to serve as road-ready product. This is Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design with a chrome-finished grille at the front that includes the edges on either sides sticking out prominently in front of the new headlamps that incorporate projectors and LED DRLs.
The simplistic dashboard is appealing – and boasts of a touchscreen unit with all the imperative audio and navigation features, to boot. The Indian-spec model is most likely to get beige-and-black interiors; however, the China-spec version gets an all-black cabin.
India will get the new Verna with the current range of engines under the bonnet, while 4-cylinder motors will serve the Chinese consumer. It’s about time Hyundai gave the mid-size sedan segment something new to rant about.
