South Korean carmaker Hyundai is planning to introduce the third-gen Verna in India. Ahead of that the sedan has been spotted testing in India.
IAB has spotted the 2017 Hyundai Verna alongside its competitive model Honda City. The updated sedan is still in its testing phase and expected to hit the showrooms by August 2017.
The 2017 Verna was spotted testing with the whole body of the car being covered with canvas. The exterior design of the car remains almost identical to the 2017 Accent sold in the North American market.
The 2017 Hyundai Verna features the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language which is more angular and edgier compared to the flowing lines of the previous model.
The interior of the new Verna features a floating dashboard with a touchscreen infotainment system, new instrument cluster and MID. The new sedan also gets climate control and rear AC vents.
The 2017 Verna is likely to draw power from the existing 1.4-litre petrol and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. The engines are mated to a 5 or 6-speed manual gearbox.
Hyundai is planning to capture the executive sedan segment in the Indian market. And now the automaker is set to introduce the 2017 iteration of the Verna. By looking at the spy images, the updated sedan will be a fierce competitor to the likes of Honda City.
