Best look at the India-spec next-gen 2017 Hyundai Verna interior [Video]
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
The interior design will draw cues from the Hyundai Elantra and Tucson.
Mr.Car has posted a video featuring a test mule of the next gen 2017 Hyundai Verna spotted in Gurgaon. The video has been shot up close, and offers the best look at its interior.
The interior has been wrapped with canvas so it’s quite hard to tell whether it’s a dual tone beige/black colour combo or an all black interior like the Hyundai Elantra. However, notice the seat upholstery in one of the spyshots, which is a dual tone beige/black combination similar to that of the top-end Hyundai i20, Creta and Grand i10, suggesting that the dashboard will be dual tone to match the seats. An image of the China-spec Verna below gives you an idea of what it could look like.
As we’ve seen in the model sold in Canada (as the Hyundai Accent), and Russia (as the Hyundai Solaris), the dashboard drops the swooping, water-fall design for a floating one similar to the i20. The touchscreen system is also visible, which is likely to be an 8 inch AVN unit with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The wheelbase is also marginally longer than before, so expect more knee-room for rear occupants.
The Verna’s dimension’s are likely to be similar to the new North America-spec Accent, which measures 4,385 mm in length, 1,729 mm in width and 1,450 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,580 mm. The Indian version will carryover the engine lineup from the outgoing car, which includes 1.4- and 1.6-litre N/A petrol and turbodiesel engines paired. While the 5-speed/6-speed manual options stay, Hyundai could drop the 4-speed AT for the Hyundai Creta’s 6-speed unit in both 1.6 petrol and turbodiesel variants.
Hyundai could also work on increasing the fuel mileage, so expect the figures to be slightly more than the current Verna’s 24.8 km/l (1.4L CRDi turbodiesel), 23.9 km/l (1.6L CRDi turbodiesel), 17.4 km/l for the (1.4L MPI petrol) and 17.01 km/l for the (1.6 MPI petrol).
The new Verna is reported to launch in August. Prices are estimated to mirror the current Verna, which retails between INR 7,95,599 to INR 1,317,385 (ex-showroom Delhi).
