The 2017 Hyundai Verna made its world debut at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show this month, and Autohome reports that the Honda City challenger will be launched on the Chinese market on October 18. This makes China the first market to receive the global sedan.

It gets a large hexagonal grille with chrome embellishers, sleek projector headlights with LED DRLs, sporty bumpers and angular foglamps, LED taillights and a boot spoiler.
The Chinese version of the Hyundai Verna will get all-black interior with silver trim over the center console and HVAC vents, new three-spoke steering wheel with audio buttons, new instrument cluster and drops the ‘waterfall’ dashboard for floating design.
The top-end model will get features such as automatic climate control, sunroof, a large touchscreen AVN system, cruise control, parking sensors and start/stop button.
Hyundai India has confirmed that the new Verna will go on sale next year. Though not stated, HMIL will offer the popular diesel engine choices (1.4- and 1.6-liter CRDI units) paired to 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
