As reported yesterday, the all-new 2017 Hyundai Verna made its global premiere today at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show in China, where it will go on sale initially.
The new Verna’s design is dictated by the company’s current Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 language. While the appearance might be evolutionary and certainly more sophisticated, each and every body panel is new. The lines are tauter and straighter while the contours are more organised. Highlights include a trapezoidal, chrome grille, new projector headlamps with L-shaped LED DRLs, diamond cut alloy wheels, a coupe-like roof line, an integrated rear spoiler and LED tail lamps.
The 2017 Hyundai Verna measures 4,380 mm long, 1,728 mm wide, 1,460 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,600 mm; 30 mm more than its predecessor.
The new Verna’s interiors have been toned down considerably from the current generation model. The China-spec model gets an all-black interior theme highlighted with dull silver finished inserts. Like in the Elantra, the centre console is angled towards the driver, while the hosting a 8-inch touchscreen equipped infotainment system. Other features include automatic air-conditioning, an engine start/stop button and a familiar, multi-function steering wheel.
In China, the 2017 Hyundai Verna will be available with a choice of 1.4- or 1.6-liter petrol engines developing 100 hp and 123 hp respectively. A 6-speed manual transmission will be standard, while a 6-speed automatic transmission is available as an option. The 2017 Hyundai Verna is expected in India sometime in 2017.
