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.

Hyundai Verna, the popular mid-sized sedan from the South Korean automaker in India, is all set to enter its third generation by mid of this year. The new Hyundai Verna 2017 is already on sale in the Chinese market. Now, the Korean carmaker has unveiled the new generation India-bound Verna sedan at the Toronto Motor Show. Just so you know, the sedan is sold as the Accent in the International markets.

As a reminder, the Hyundai Creta was also first launched in China as Hyundai iX25 and then brought to India. Following the similar product strategy, the company will launch the global-spec Verna 2017 in India as well. The new model is premium in nature, and is equipped with several high-end features including LED DRLs, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED turn indicators, automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, etc. This sedan is longer and wider than the outgoing model. In fact, the wheelbase has also been increased by 10mm which ensures an even more spacious cabin. 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. If reports are to be believed, Hyundai might introduce the mild-hybrid technology with the 1.6-litre diesel powertrain on the top-spec model. Also See- New Hyundai Verna Exterior & Interior Image Gallery

The current-generation model of the Verna was launched in India in 2011, and it received a mild-facelift in 2015. It was once the segment-topper in terms of sales, but lost its position to the Honda City in 2014. 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, Hyundai aims to regain its lost ground.

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 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.
