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.

January 5, 2017 – Hyundai Verna, the popular sedan from the South Korean carmaker in India, is set to enter in its third generation by mid of this year. Previewed at the Chengdu Motor Show previous year, the new Hyundai Verna 2017 is already on sale in the Chinese market with two petrol powertrain options – a 100bhp, 1.4-litre & a 123bhp, 1.6-litre. Transmission options include – a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic unit.

As a reminder, the Hyundai Creta was also first launched in China as Hyundai ix25 and then brought to India. We expect the similar product strategy in the case of Verna 2017 as well. In India, the 2017 Hyundai Verna will come with the same set of engines – 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel – carried forward from the current model. Reports suggest that Hyundai might introduce the mild-hybrid technology with the 1.6-litre diesel powertrain on the top-model of the sedan. Also See- New Hyundai Verna Exterior & Interior Image Gallery

The current-gen model of the Verna was launched in India in 2011, and it received a mid-life facelift in 2015. The vehicle was once the segment-topper in terms of sales, but lost its position to the Honda City. And as soon as the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz entered the market, the Verna moved to the number three spot in the segment. With the new-gen model, the company will try regain its lost ground. As a matter of fact, the current Verna doesn’t even do half of the sales of the Ciaz.

New Hyundai Verna 2017 Specifications

Variant Maximum Power Maximum Torque
1.4-litre Petrol 105bhp 135Nm
1.6-litre Petrol 121bhp 155Nm
1.4-litre Diesel 89bhp 220Nm
1.6-litre Diesel 126bhp 260Nm

Engine specifications of the new Hyundai Verna are yet to be revealed. Speculations suggest that the India-spec version of the saloon will retain its current engines – 1.4-litre petrol, 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4-litre U2 CRDi diesel and 1.6-litre CRDi diesel. Though, these powertrains could be retuned for better refinement. While the entry-level 1.4-litre petrol motor delivers 105bhp and 135Nm of torque, the 1.6-litre petrol churns out power worth 121bhp and 155Nm of torque.

On the other hand, the 1.4-litre U2 CRDi and 1.6-litre CRDi diesel mills make 89bhp with 220Nm and 126bhp with 260Nm respectively. There will be three transmissions on offer – a 6-speed manual, 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic (only on 1.6-litre variants). As mentioned above, the 2017 Verna might also receive a 1.6-litre engine with mild hybrid technology. This will make it a direct rival of the Maruti Ciaz SHVS.

Packed with current engine lineup, the new 2017 Hyundai Verna is likely to be as fuel efficient as the current model. Currently, the saloon delivers an impressive mileage of 18kmpl (1.4L petrol), 17kmpl (1.6L petrol), 19kmpl (1.6L diesel) and 25kmpl (1.4L diesel).

The production version of the new 2017 Hyundai Verna shares a strong resemblance with the original concept that was put up on display at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show. The new model has an aggressive and more premium appeal, thanks to its evolved Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. Upfront, the car gets large hexagonal grille, sculptured bumpers and pulled-back headlamps. The side profile of the saloon has been revised with sloping roof-line, blackened C-Pillar and new alloy wheels.

The most interesting design bit of the new Hyundai Verna 2017, however, is its rear profile that gets sportier tail-lamps with LED elements and all-new integrated spoiler. Talking about the dimensions, 2017 Verna is 5mm longer and 28mm wider than the current model. The wheelbase too has been increased by 30mm, thus making it more spacious for occupants. The overall length, width and height of the new 2017 Verna measure 4,380mm, 1,728mm and 1,460mm respectively. The saloon has a wheelbase of 2,600mm.

In order to make it more practical, Hyundai might increase boot space of the car.

      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.
