In an earlier article, we had reported about the Hyundai Verna facelift being spotted while it was being tested in China, and now the face-lifted version has been launched in the Chinese market and has already hit the dealership floors.
The Verna facelift comes loaded with oodles of aesthetic goodness, with the new bonnet design, headlamp design, tail lamp design and fog lamp design combined with refreshed front and rear bumpers and grille design making the car look younger than the outgoing model.
Up-front, the new Verna boasts of a new grille with two parallel chrome strips and the Hyundai badge in between, and the new redesigned headlamps also get LED daytime running lights which add so much more character to the front of the car. From the side, the Verna looks pretty much the same, except that it sits on new diamond-cut alloy wheels and it also gets turn-indicators integrated into the ORVM’s. The rear of the car gets a redesigned bumper with a faux diffuser and re-positioned reflectors.
The Verna facelift is expected to be launched in India by the end of 2014, and is expected to run on the same 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engines which are currently doing duty in the Verna, but with a few minor tweaks. The face-lifted Verna was launched by Hyundai in a hurry, as it is definitely facing the heat from the new Honda city, and is one of the measures taken by Hyundai in order to keep the customers coming back.
