The diesel engines of the Verna facelift return better fuel efficiency compared to the pre-facelift model.

The front fascia is given redesigned headlight clusters with projector headlights, a dual-slat chrome grille and a new bumper. The rear also gets a new bumper with new reflectors, LED-effect taillights and concealed exhaust tips.

Inside, the front co-passenger seat is given an ‘Ergo’ lever, with which the rear passenger can adjust the seat for increased legroom. The Verna facelift continues to get features like an integrated audio system with Bluetooth compatibility and 1GB of internal storage, steering-mounted controls, reverse camera and parking sensors and optional leather seats.
