Reported to launch on February 16.
The Hyundai Verna has been due for a facelift, and while markets like China and Russia got an update last year, it never came to the Indian market. With the Indian launch reportedly scheduled for February 16, the Verna facelift has been caught on test again, revealing itself fully.
Spotted by PowerDrift, the 2015 Hyundai Verna facelift bears an updated front end, with new headlamps with projector units, a dual-slat chrome grille, a sporty-looking bumper, and LED daytime running lamps. At the rear, the overall design remains unchanged, but it now gets a redesigned bumper and LED taillamps. As could be seen in the pictures, the Verna appears to be running on new alloys.
On the inside, the facelifted Verna will continue to use the same interior, although the feature list could be updated. A touchscreen based infotainment system (complete with navigation capabilities) is highly expected.
In the engine department, the car will still be offered with a range of 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel options. While a manual transmission is going to be standard, the 4-speed automatic unit could likely be replaced by a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
