2017 Hyundai Verna: What To Expect?

Originally Published On Auto X |

Hyundai’s next big launch for the Indian market will be the new-generation Verna sedan. As you might already, it’s going to be an important product for the brand since the current Verna hasn’t quite managed to challenge rivals such as the Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. However, with the new Verna launch around the corner, Hyundai will be back in the game in a bigger and better way.

Here’s a quick look at the highlights of the all-new Verna:

The 2017 Hyundai Verna follows the firm’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy – same as the Tucson and Elantra. Thanks to that, the new Verna gets a refreshing look. The front fascia has been completely revised, featuring a new grille, a new pair of swept-back headlights with LED DRLs and projector lamps.

Around the side, the new Verna’s silhouette is remarkably similar to the current car. However, it’s longer than before and sits on a 30mm longer wheelbase (2,600mm vs 2,570mm).

The rear-section has been completely redone as well. Notice the new Elantra-esque LED tail-lamps.

The interior layout and design have been influenced by the Elantra as well. The new Verna gets a new dashboard design, which is highlighted by an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It’ll also have Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity options.

Powertrain options on the new Verna are going to include 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. A six-speed manual transmission will now be standard across the range, while the 1.6-litre engines will have a six-speed automatic as optional.
