Here’s a name that should sound very familiar, except that it’s on a completely new face. Hyundai has unveiled an all-new global sedan called the Hyundai Verna at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show.
On the outside, Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language face dominates the front end, while the rear features a redesigned C-pillar and a moulded spoiler. Beautiful or not, that’s up to you to decide, but it’s interesting to note that the 2017 Verna looks similar to the new Elantra, which was recently launched in India.
In any case, the interior is said to follow the same theme with new Hyundai Elantra. The China-spec Verna has an all-black interior with silver trim around the center console and HVAC vents, automatic climate control, i20 inspired steering wheel, redesigned instrument cluster, and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation. There is also an engine start/stop button on offer.
In China, the 2017 Verna will be offered with the option of a 1.4-litre and a 1.6-litre petrol engine in China, churning power-output of 100 BHP and 123 BHP respectively. Both engines either mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The India-spec car will also carry forward the existing range of 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre diesel engines.
The 2017 Verna is expected to go on-sale in China later this-year, while the rest of markets including India will get sometime in 2017.
