It seems like just yesterday when Hyundai introduced its second generation Verna. It caught the people’s fancy with its flowing, fluidic design and did quite well for its parent company. Now, news emanating from China, courtesy auto.ifeng.com, has it that Verna is getting a facelift.
The current Verna was introduced in 2011 and it still manages to look contemporary. But Hyundai thinks otherwise. Perhaps competition dictates that it is time for Verna to get a nip-and-tuck. Honda is out with its all new City and others like Fiat Linea facelift and Ford Fiesta facelift are about to hit our shores.
The facelifted Verna for Chinese market gets projector headlamps, refreshed grille and minor changes to the rear bumper reflectors. It is worth noting though that the Chinese Verna has always been slightly different from its Indian counterpart to begin with. A couple of months back, Hyundai has already launched a slightly updated Verna in India which comes with projectors and has slashed a few features from the list as well.
Will the new changes we see on this Chinese Verna be seen in Indian Verna sometime later this year is unclear at this point but we understand that Hyundai will definitely come up with a facelift of sorts. The 2014 Verna has also been unveiled internationally. It carries various nip-tuck jobs, details of which you can read here. It looks quite possible that the facelifted Verna will carry the changes and enhancements mentioned in that report and take a few bits from this one.
Verna has been doing rather well sales wise having sold 47,212 units of the sedan from January to November 2013. The availability of diesel engine options, good looks and a long list of features has helped Hyundai Verna to top the sales charts. The new enhancements, one could be sure, will only add to its appeal. Expect Indian Verna to make it to headlines soon sometime during this year.
