Probable Hyundai Verna Facelift Spotted

  • Jul 22, 2019

A new Hyundai sedan, largely being touted to be a facelift version of the Verna, has been spotted in China. Images of the new car are already being widely circulated on the internet. Hyundai had rolled out the current Verna in 2017 and while it’s a feature-rich car, the vehicle still requires an update to keep abreast of increasing competition.

The updates sported in the new Verna include a revised front bumper with silver accents, a trapezoidal grille, larger sweptback triple-pod headlamps merging with the grille, and a new taillight cluster which is connected via an LED strip running across the width of the car. Other cosmetic updates comprise a shark fin antenna, sunroof, and dual-tone alloy wheels for the higher trim, ventilated front seats, cruise control, and a touchscreen infotainment system. Cosmetic highlights include a sunroof and dual-tone alloy wheels for a higher variant of the car. Safety features will include an antilock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) and six airbags. 

The facelift Hyundai Verna will be offered in BS-VI compliant 1.5-litre diesel and petrol engines borrowed from the Kia Seltos. Both engines are likely to output 115PS maximum power with the diesel motor producing 250Nm peak torque. A 6-speed manual gear system will come as standard.

The petrol motor will get an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) unit and the diesel engine may be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission (AT) system. The existing 1.6-litre and 1.4-litre diesel, and the 1.4-litre petrol motor are likely to be phased out before 1 April 2020 when the BS-VI emission standard is implemented.

The India-specific Verna facelift could be showcased at the 2020 New Delhi Auto Expo. The ex-showroom price, ₹8.10 lakh to ₹14.06 lakh, may remain unchanged with a minor rise for the higher trims. The new Verna will compete with the Toyota Yaris, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento, and the Skoda Rapid.
