New Hyundai Verna 2017

With a sportier and edgier design, several new features and up-market cabin, the new 2017 Hyundai Verna could be priced a little higher than the current model.

The new Hyundai Verna 2017 has been spotted testing in India, revealing details about the new-generation model set for launch sometime this year.Toppled by the new-gen City, the sedan has another strong competitor, Maruti Ciaz in the segment. The new-generation model therefore aims at regaining zenith in the mid-size sedan space.

Coming to the recently spotted test mule, the sedan seems to have undergone notable design changes on the outside and inside. Internationally, the new Verna will be sold under the Solaris nameplate, whereas in India it will retain the Verna badge with styling updates borrowed from the former. Built on Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2 design language, the new Hyundai Verna is expected to be larger than the current model, implicating more space inside the cabin. On the outside, the sedan is likely to get LED headlamps and diamond cut alloy wheels. Check Out – Picture Gallery – New Hyundai Verna

Additionally, it is likely to mimic Solaris in terms of interior layout with a large touchscreen on the centre console and a similarly styled dashboard. The in-cabin equipment will include auto climate control and additional connectivity options for the infotainment system. Since the spotted test mule features disc units all around, it is likely that the production model will also get disc units in front and rear.

Power on the new Verna will come from the same petrol and diesel units from the predecessor. It is expected that Hyundai may add a mild hybrid version to the line-up.

      The Verna will be much more premium than the current model with better quality material. And this one might also feature rear AC-vents, since that’s a common features in all new-age Hyundai cars in India.

      This one might come with a 5-speed one as well, but it will be too early to comment on its exact specs & features. We’ll update you on this as soon as and when there is an official announcement.

      There’s just one 1.4-litre diesel variant and that too features a manual gearbox.

    It’s surely a stunner but will it come with all those features and looks to India?
    I have noticed with New Elantra that Hyundai have replaced those nice wheels and tyres with boaring ones for India.

    Probably a Sun /moon roof will be an added advantage
