According to a report, the 2015 Hyundai Verna facelift launch is tentatively scheduled on February 16.
Regarding the face-lift, it has already been implemented in Russia and China, where’s its called the Solaris. Set to change is the front fascia, which will feature a revised, twin chrome slatted grille, front bumper and newly designed headlamps with projector illumination. At the back the bumper gets a slight revision with reflectors mirroring the shape of the front fog lamps, as well as new tail light clusters. Inside the cabin, there will be a new touchscreen infotainment system and additional airbags.
Mechanically, the face-lifted Verna will feature a slightly revised and firmer suspension setup to account for it’s notoriously wallow handling characteristics. An updated steering is also in order, to improve the feedback of the current one. Engine-wise, expect to see the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines that are found on the current generation Verna. The 1.6-litre petrol engine churns out 121 hp of power and 155 Nm of torque. The 1.6-litre diesel, on the other hand, puts out 126 hp of power and 259 Nm of torque. The current generation Verna also comes with a 1.4-litre diesel unit which pumps out 89 hp of power and 224 Nm of torque.
