Hyundai has been working on the updated version of the Verna since sometimes now. A couple of weeks back, we brought you a few images which showed the Hyundai Verna facelift without any camouflage for the first time. Now, however, the upcoming model has been clicked in its production form. The images here by xcar show the upcoming C-segment sedan in its full glory. These images were clicked while the Verna was being put up for its upcoming world premiere at the upcoming Chengdu Motor show in China, which kicks off from the 6th of September.
As is the case with other Hyundai cars, the Verna facelift also carries a radical design transformation which makes it look like a generation upgrade. The front end looks completely different from the current model in a good way. The overall design, though, is similar to other facelifted sedans by Hyundai including the new Sonata and te updated Elantra, both of which are not yet available in the country right now. The big grille upfront is now positioned lower and is broader than ever. It gets thick satin chrome bars along with a Hyundai logo in the middle.
The headlamps are much more angular and larger than the ones found on the outgoing model. The same edgy design is maintained over the bumper too. Lower variants may sport an all-black grille and will be less flashy than the one here. Hyundai is known to spec its cars decently and hence the new Verna could feature all-LED headlamps, though only on the top-end variants. Coming to the sides, we see new stylish alloy wheels on the car. Hyundai will offer silver alloys on the lower end variants while the top-end variants will get diamond-cut dual-tone alloy as on the car here.
The rear end gets similar tail lamps as on the current model but they are now longer and a thin strip runs between both of them. The boot design is all-new with the license plate position shifted to a lower end of the boot. The boot lid gets a slight kink towards its end and apart from, a dual-tone faux-diffuser is seen at the lower end of the bumper. On the inside, the new facelifted Verna is expected to come with a larger touchscreen setup along with connected car features.
Speaking of the engines, the India bound Hyundai Verna facelift models will get a new set of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. These engines will be BS6-compliant and will be used on the new generation Hyundai Creta as well apart from a few other new Hyundai models in India. Expect the facelifted Verna to be launched here by the second half of 2020.
