Hyundai Verna is one of the best-looking sedans that you can currently get in the Indian market. It has also been quite popular among buyers who want to modify their vehicles. There are many modified Vernas that you can find in India which have been heavily modified and they do look quite nice. However, here is a render of a Verna that has been done by bimbledesigns and the pictures have been shared on Instagram.
There are quite a few mods done to make the render. The first thing that you would notice is that artist has used a wide body kit on the Verna. The Verna has a lot more aggressive stance than the stock Verna. It is painted in a custom matte grey paint which enhances the appeal of the sedan.

The renderer has removed the stock Hyundai logo and replaced it with Batman vs Superman Logo which also glows white. There is a front splitter finished in carbon fiber and it also gets side skirts. Overall, the rendering of the Verna does look very attractive and aggressive.

You can get the Verna with three engine options. There is a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, 1.5-litre diesel engine and a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. All the engines are derived from other Hyundai and Kia vehicles. This helps in saving production costs.
