2017 Hyundai Verna – Concept vs Reality
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will go on sale in China later this year.
The next gen Verna draws most of its styling cues from the concept, which are influenced by the Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. Up front, both share a large hexagonal grille with chrome bezels, sleek projector headlamps and sportier bumpers. It also has a a redesigned C-pillar and rear door, repositioned registration plate, new taillamps and a roof that elegantly flows into the boot.
As with any concept car, some of the swanky features don’t necessarily make it to the production car. For instance, the concept car’s mesh grille, LED accents, sportier bumper, and large alloy rims are not offered in the regular Verna.
The 2017 Hyundai Verna is reported to measure 4,380 mm in length, 1,728 mm in width, 1,460 mm in height and 2,600 mm in wheelbase. The wheelbase, as per Chinese news reports, has been extended by 30 mm to enhance interior space.
