While the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift was expected to debut at Auto Expo 2020, the South Korean carmaker giant restricted its lineup to the all-new Creta and the updated Tucson
By now, it has become fairly well-known that the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift will launch in the coming months. However, unlike what was being expected, the new updated model didn’t make it to the Auto Expo 2020. Still, sources inform us that the launch of the refreshed version of the Maruti Ciaz and Honda City is very much on the anvil and will happen by April 2020.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift will be kitted out with a slew of styling changes, along with a set of BSVI-compliant engines. The styling updates for the mid-size sedan will be pretty much the same as the ones seen on the China-spec model. On the other hand, the engine options will be shared with the all-new Creta that will launch next month. The front-end of the 2020 Hyundai Verna will have the latest version of the company’s signature cascading grille, while the headlights will carry LED fixtures. The side profile will remain pretty much the same, except for the availability of new design alloy wheels. The rear-end will feature a set of new taillamps and a reworked bootlid.
Even the interior will carry substantial updates. The dashboard of the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift will have a bigger touchscreen infotainment. More importantly, the sedan will carry the BlueLink connected apps suite that debuted in India on the Venue. The infotainment unit, on the other hand, will support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other highlights of the features list will include an electric sunroof, wireless smartphone charging pod, 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, a rear view camera and electronic stability control.
Powering the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift will be the same set of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options that are available on the Kia Seltos and will be even offered on the Hyundai Creta. Both the engines will come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission each, while an automatic transmission will also be on offer. The petrol mill will develop 115PS and 144Nm, while the oil-burner will offer 115PS and 250Nm.
Prices of the 2020 Hyundai Verna will be slightly more than those of the current model. The new version will be not only tasked with taking on the best-selling Maruti Ciaz but also on the new generation 2020 Honda City that will launch next month.
