2017 Hyundai Verna show its LED DRL glow in new spy shots

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.

Launch expected in August 2017.

New spyshots of a 3rd gen Hyundai Verna test mule reveal its LED DRL design, which look identical to that of the NA-spec 2017 Hyundai Accent. HID projector headlamps and LED DRLs could be exclusive to the top-end grades like SX and SX (O).

Behind the canvas lies an exterior design inspired by Hyundai’s latest iteration of the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. If dimensions are identical to the Accent, the new Verna will measure 4,385 mm in length, 1,729 mm in width and 1,450 mm in height, and having a wheelbase of 2,580 mm. It will have a 10 mm longer wheelbase, 29 mm more overall width and overall length increased by 15 mm.

Older spyshots have revealed the interior featuring a dual tone beige/black colour combo for the dashboard and seat upholstery, a floating dashboard housing a 5- to 7-inch touchscreen AVN unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, new instrument dials and multi-info display, automatic ‘Clean Air’ climate control, and rear HVAC vent. Expect build quality and material to improve by a notch.

We assume that Hyundai will keep the 1.4- and 1.6-litre N/A petrol and CRDi turbodiesel engines paired with 5-speed/6-speed manual options. Automatic variants will also be available, although they could drop the 4-speed AT for the Hyundai Creta’s 6-speed unit. In the NA-spec Accent, the 6-speed automatic gearbox is redesigned for smoother performance and is 2 kg lighter.

Fuel mileage could improve for the Verna to compete better against the Honda City and Maruti Ciaz, and will see a significant revision if mild hybrid technology is included in the car. The current version can average 24.8 km/l (1.4L CRDi turbodiesel), 23.9 km/l (1.6L CRDi turbodiesel), 17.4 km/l (1.4L MPI petrol) and 17.01 km/l (1.6 MPI petrol).

HMIL has confirmed that it will introduce the new Verna in the second half of the calendar year, with reports narrowing down the date to August.
