The Hyundai Verna in its present iteration, despite being a great product is not getting the South Korean firm the necessary volumes. Hope now lies on the next generation model which is expected to hit the road sometime next year. The updated version was recently unveiled for the first time at the Chengdu Motor Show.
Keeping up with the style statement set by the concept version, the car gets a larger trapezoidal front grille. Photos posted by Autohome reveal that the new Verna gets projector head lamps and LED daytime running lamps. The Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language is fairly evident. The new Verna grows bigger and now measures 4,380 mm in length and 1,728 mm in width. The overall height has been increased to 1,460 mm.
Interiors are all black and are inspired from the Elantra. A large touchscreen infotainment system is not a major surprise as it has become more of a norm now. Fighting the likes of the City and Ciaz, the new Verna though can be expected to sport the same engine options in India as the present one.
Hyundai’s next product in India is the Tucson, which will be launched in the festive season. Placed between the Creta and Santa Fe, the Tucson can be a good seller if they can price it well.
