Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Made its world debut at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show.
The 2017 Hyundai Verna made its world debut at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show last week and below is a brief walkaround of the next gen Hyundai Verna from the show floor.
The exterior styling of the next gen Hyundai Verna is an evolutionary step up from the outgoing model, falling inline with the company’s latest range. It features a large hexagonal grille with chrome embellishers, sleek projector headlamps with LED DRLs, sportier bumpers and angular foglamps, LED taillamps and a moulded spoiler.
The China-spec Hyundai Verna model has an all-black interior with silver trim around the center console and HVAC vents, new three spoke steering wheel with buttons, new instrument cluster and drops the ‘waterfall’ dashboard for floating design instead. The model showcased was equipped with automatic climate control, sunroof, a large touchscreen AVN system, cruise control, parking sensors and start/stop button.
In China, the new Verna will be sold with a choice between a 1.4- and 1.6-liter petrol engine developing 100 hp and 123 hp respectively. For the Indian market, though unconfirmed, Hyundai will additionally offer the popular diesel engine choices (1.4- and 1.6-liter CRDi units) paired to 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
