The next-generation Hyundai Verna has been revealed officially in China, while the Indian launch is due in 2017. The revealed images of the new Verna showcase its new design language and updated interior. The next-generation Hyundai Verna will be based on the familiar Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. The car is larger than the present Verna at 4,380mm of length, 1,728 mm of width, 1468 mm of height and a wheelbase of 2,600mm. Under the hood, the 2017 Hyundai Verna will be powered by 1.4 L and a 1.6 L petrol and diesel units. The engine produces 98bhp and 120bhp, respectively, mated to a 6-speed manual and automatic gearbox.
The 2017 Verna looks more premium than the current model with a larger trapezoidal grille finished in chrome and swept back projector headlights with LED DRLs (daytime running light). On the silhouette part, the Verna resembles the new Hyundai Elantra with a coupe-like body design. The new bumper features fog lamps with LEDs, while the alloys have been redesigned to match to the new body language.
Inside the cabin, the sedan will have an all-black theme with silver accents. The Korean carmaker will also equip the Verna with an 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android connectivity. The higher variants are expected to get an automatic climate control system, start-stop button, while the safety features will include airbags and ABS. The 2017 Hyundai Verna will make its way to the Indian car market by next year, which will rival against the likes of Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz in the segment.
