Korean automaker, Hyundai has officially unveiled the Verna facelift at the 2019 CMS (Chengdu Motor Show). The new model will arrive in our market in early 2020. The India-spec Verna will receive different design compared to the Chinese model, which has flashy design.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift receives changes in-line with the design of brand’s global sedans including the La-Festa sedan, the new-gen Sonata, Elantra facelift and the updated Ioniq. It comes with more aggressive front styling with edgy look. Upfront is a sleeker and wider cascading grille with thicker horizontal chrome slats, and larger headlamps. The newly designed LED headlamp has 3 section – projection headlamp, the parking lamp and the turn indicator – with chrome outlines separating them.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna comes with all-new bumper with wider central air-dam, aggressive chrome embellishment, and black plastic and satin grey bits. The side profile remains largely identical to the outgoing car, except for the newly styled alloys. The top-spec model will have dual-tone machined alloys, which seems identical to that of the latest ix25.
At the back, the 2020 Hyundai Verna sedan comes with major upgrades. It comes with all-new boot and tail-lamp cluster. The sedan has a connected tail-lamp design with thin LED strip that runs across the model’s width. The license plate is now positioned slightly lower on the boot, while the rear bumper gets newly styled, vertically placed reflectors and a dual-tone faux-diffuser. In terms of proportions, the new Verna facelift is 4,405mm in length, 1,720mm in width, 1,455mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,60mm. Media report claims that the sedan is 25mm longer than the outgoing car.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna facelift also receives significant changes inside the cabin. It gets larger touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The India-spec model will also get Hyundai’s Bluelink connected solution, which we have already seen on the Venue.
The Chinese-spec Verna facelift is available with 2 petrol engines – a 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre. The India-spec model will be made available with new 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, which will also power the next-gen Hyundai Creta. While the petrol engine is good for 115bhp and 144Nm, the oil burner produces 115bhp and 250Nm of torque. Transmission options are likely to include a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed CVT (petrol) and a 6-speed torque convertor (diesel).
