At the ongoing Auto China 2016, Hyundai India has displayed a new concept that will become basis for the new-generation Hyundai Verna. Set to launch in China first, the 2017 Hyundai Verna will be launched in all the markets where the company already sells the current-gen model of the sedan.

The Hyundai Verna 2017 surely looks a lot sportier than the current model thanks to the company's evolved Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. The new-gen model of the sedan features a large hexagonal grille, all-new bumper & head-lamps. Other interesting design elements are - slopping roofline, blackened C-pillar, all-new LED tail-lights, etc.

The current-gen model, which is on sale globally, entered the Indian market in 2011 and received a mid-life makeover in 2015. Despite receiving the facelift, the Hyundai Verna couldn't regain its lost ground as people continued to prefer the Honda City and Maruti Ciaz over the South Korean carmaker's sedan. Until the launch of new-generation Honda City, the Hyundai Verna was the segment topper. And things became ever worse for the Hyundai Verna post the launch of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz as the latter grabbed the number 2 spot within a month of its launch.

Though the company didn't reveal the vehicle's exact specifications, we expect the India-bound model to retain the same 1.6-litre petrol & 1.6-litre diesel powertrains that do duty in the current model.

Since the Hyundai Verna 2017 will be more up-market than the current one, we expect its prices to be slightly higher than the latter.
