2020 Hyundai Verna
The new Hyundai Verna will flaunt a sportier front fascia and be one of the most attractive premium B-segment sedans in India.

The India-made 2020 Hyundai Verna will most likely have the same design as the Russia-made 2020 Hyundai Verna (2020 Hyundai Solaris). The new sedan will have a more appealing front-end with a sportier design for the radiator grille, headlamps and the bumper. Unlike the old car's headlamps, its headlamps will be LED units.

The sides and rear-end of the 2020 Hyundai Verna won't look much different from the same angles of the old model. There'll be new alloy wheels, tweaked, LED tail lights and a more stylish bumper on the refreshed premium sedan. The interior will be barely any different in terms of design. The only major change on the inside could be a new infotainment system with a bigger, 8-inch display.
