Hyundai Verna is one of the most loved mid-size sedan in India. It competes with cars like Maruti Ciaz, Honda City, Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento in the segment. It is popular among buyers because of its modern looks and features loaded cabin. Hyundai updated the Verna slightly as part of the BS6 transition and launched a facelifted version in the market. It is a popular vehicle in the modifying circles and we have seen a lot of tastefully modified Verna around the country. Here we have a video that shows a pre-facelift Verna sedan converted into a 2020 version.
The video has been uploaded by Arun Panwar on his youtube channel. The vlogger starts by showing the Hyundai Verna sedan from the outside. The car looks like a 2020 facelifted version from the front. The owner of this car had replaced all the parts at the front with the new version. He went to nearby Hyundai dealership and arranged all the parts. All the parts used on this car were genuine and not aftermarket kit.
The facelifted version and the pre-facelift version were both same in terms of dimension and that made things easier for the owner. The new panels were a perfect fit on the old car. The only thing that would confuse people is the alloy wheels. It is an SX(O) trim 1.6 diesel Verna and comes with a long list of features. If the owner had replaced the stock alloy wheels with the one seen in the facelifted version, then there is a possibility that it would look exactly like a 2020 version.
As part of the conversion, the projector headlamps of the older version were replaced with all LED units with integrated LED DRLs in it. The front grille is a lot deeper and get smoked chrome on it. The projector fog lamps and the gloss black garnish around it has also been purchased by the owner. muscular looking bumper also gets a chrome strip which was not there in the pre-facelift. As per the video the overall cost of this conversion was around Rs 1.14 lakh. The video even shows the old car before conversion and the difference is quite evident. Only the front of the car has been and no changes are made to the rear. It still gets the same old bumper and tail light setup.
