The facelifted Hyundai Verna will be showcased at the upcoming Chengdu Motor Show in China. India launch is likely to happen next year.
Hyundai is gearing up for the global debut of the heavily-facelifted Hyundai Verna at the Chengdu Motor Show in the coming months. The updated Verna is expected to come to us for some time in 2020. Ahead of its world’s premiere, images of the Hyundai Verna facelift has surfaced online, revealing its exterior look. When talking about its styling, the refreshed Verna is in line with newer Hyundai models sold in the international markets like the new-gen Hyundai Sonata or the recently-unveiled Hyundai Ioniq.
Hyundai is readying the facelifted Verna which is due to have its global debut at Chengdu Motor Show.
The updated Hyundai Verna gets a more aggressive exterior design as compared to the previous model. Up front, the new sedan features a sleeker and wider cascading grille which sees more chrome added in the higher variants. The front bumper are newly designed and delivers a good mix of satin grey and black plastic bits. The headlamps are much larger and comes neatly connected to the upper grille. They have come with quite a bit of chrome detailings separating the lamps in three different sections, namely the projector headlamps, parking lamp as well as turn indicator. The all-LED headlamps are said to make it to the top variants of the Verna as well.
The first set of images of the new Verna has surfaced online recently, giving us an idea of how the model could look like.
The lavish alloy wheel designs of the new Verna gives an away an upmarket look to its side profile, especially the machine-cut dual-tone alloys in the higher variants. The rear end of the sedan also experiences major changes, with newly-designed tail lamps, boot and rear bumper. There’s a thin LED strip connecting the taillights that reflects the car’s overall width. The boot-mounted license plate is placed lower than the earlier version. The rear bumper also features the vertically-placed reflectors along with a dual-tone faux diffuser. Thanks to the front and rear cosmetic tweaks, the new Hyundai Verna is, in fact, around 25 mm longer than the previous model.
The facelifted Hyundai Verna is likely to hit the Indian showrooms in the H2 of 2020.
The interior of the Verna facelift is also upgraded for the greater convenience and comfort. It gets a large touchscreen that is compatible with more connected car features as the one we see in the newly-launched Hyundai Venue.
In China, the Hyundai Verna packs a 1.4-litre petrol engine option only. However, the refreshed Verna in India will most likely to come with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines which are expected to be BSVI-compliant at the time of launch. Note that the same set of engines also power the next-gen Creta, facelifted Hyundai Elantra or the already-launched Kia Seltos. Possibly, the petrol engine might come with a 48V hybrid system.
