For nearly a decade, the Hyundai Verna has been one of the most popular mid-size sedans sold in the country. It competes with cars like Maruti Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid in the C-segment. Hyundai had unveiled the updated BS6 version of the Verna earlier this year, and now the South Korean automaker has officially launched the car. The facelifted 2020 Hyundai Verna starts at an introductory price of Rs 9.30 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi. Bookings are open and deliveries will commence shortly.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna Facelift gets minor changes in terms of design at the front. The front of the car gets a bold design with larger grille, a redesigned bumper, new all LED headlamps, new fog lamp design and so on.
