The new Hyundai Verna will be launched in India on August 22, 2017. Bookings for the sedan are already open at Hyundai dealerships across India.

The new Verna dons Hyundai’s new family face complete with the signature ‘Cascading’ grille design. It offers projector headlamps with LED daytime running lamps and the tail lights get LED graphics as well. There are 16-inch diamond cut alloys on offer. On the inside, the Verna comes with a new 7-inch touchscreen AVN with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, a segment first ventilated seats, rear aircon vents, six airbags, automatic climate control and an electric sunroof.

The 2017 Hyundai Verna is built on a new ‘K2’ platform. Its ‘Super Body Structure’ comprises 50% Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS). Hyundai claims this helps lower NVH levels and improve safety and on-road performance.
