The 2020 Hyundai Verna has made its stage debut at the 2019 Chengdu Auto Show. The facelifted model that will be launched in India next year, might look slightly different, though, as is the case with the original model.
As fairly visible from the pictures, the Hyundai Verna has gone through an extreme physical makeover, so much so, that some might mistake it for an all-new model. On the outside, it flaunts similar exteriors as the Hyundai Lafesta and it has a design which might be too extreme for some.
At the front, the 2020 Hyundai Verna gets a fully redesigned headlamp assembly which has been stretched almost up to mid-length of the hood. The headlamp assembly gets sharp-looking new light inserts along with an angular DRL strip at the base. Apart from that, it also gets a new smart-looking hexagonal radiator grille with bigger chrome slats housing the brand logo. Furthermore, changes include a much sharper bumper, new lower grille and omission of fog lamps. Overall, the front fascia now appears to have grown much sharper and brawnier in comparison to the pre-facelift model.
On the sides, the 2020 Hyundai Verna features newly designed diamond-cut alloy wheels similar to the ones seen on the 2020 Hyundai ix25 (Hyundai Creta). While at the back, it has connected tail lamps which might not be as nicely executed as in the case of the Hyundai Lafesta or the Hyundai Sonata.
Inside, the updated car has a new infotainment system with a bigger display. While China gets the familiar 1.4- and 1.6-litre D-CVVT petrol engines, India will get all-new, BS-VI 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. The updated car may come with a CVT option as well.
The 2020 Hyundai Verna will be launched in China by end-2020 and in India likely sometime around mid-2020.
