Spied again – New Hyundai Verna (Code:RB)
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
While the spy shooters have been taking a lot of images of the new Hyundai Verna, the new photographs on a Korean auto forum provide a clearer idea of the boot and the roofline.
The next generation Verna and Elantra (spied on another occasion) have clearly borrowed a lot from the Sonata YF. They are also moving closer to being 4 door coupes. Hyundai’s design language is heading in the right direction.
The new Hyundai Accent will go on sale in 2010, so the Indian debut should not be very far away. We expect the car to reach India by the end of 2011. The regular CRDi engines and larger displacement 4 pot petrols will rest under the new Verna’s hood. There are also chances for the 1.6 GDi that produces 140bhp to make it on to the RB, but the Indian RB is likely to feature traditional CRDI engines and to the maximum extent, a petrol engine with variable valve timing – which again is our best guess.
We’ll keep an eye out for more news as well as test mules.
