In a recent communication, Hyundai Motor India Ltd has revealed that the upcoming 2020 Verna facelift will feature a 1.0-litre T-GDI petrol engine with a 7-DCT
It looks like the wait for the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift is about to get over. The upcoming Maruti Ciaz and Honda City-rival has been teased through a set of official images, which, on some fine tuning, go on to reveal the styling package of the updated car. Moreover, giving validation to several rumours, the company has announced that the new model would feature a 1.0-litre T-GDI turbo-petrol option with a 7-speed DCT automatic unit.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift for India is based on the recently updated version of the Russia-spec Solaris.

As was being expected, the 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift looks a lot like the recently introduced update for the Russia-spec Solaris. It features a wider grille that bridges the sleeker pair of headlamps, while the bumper has a bolder look with crispier creases and a more prominent diffuser. The side profile stays almost unchanged, except for the usage of new alloy wheels and updated wrap-around tail lamps that extend a tad further into the rear fenders. Speaking of the taillamps, they have a new glow pattern.
The only prominent change in the side profile will be due to the introduction of the new design machine-cut alloy wheels.
Details of the interior aren't known at the moment but the new model could come with a revised dashboard that would feature new central aircon vents and a floating-type touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Apart from the new 1.0-litre T-GDI turbo-petrol option, the new model will even feature the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel units from the Creta. Both the motors will be optionally available with an automatic transmission option each. While the petrol mill will be sold with a CVT option, the oil-burner will be available with a 6-speed torque-converter automatic unit.
With the launch of the mid-cycle facelift, the Hyundai Verna will be available with a 1.0-litre T-GDI turbo-petrol engine that will be mated to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic unit.
