2017 Hyundai Verna revealed

With the Beijing Motor Show on in full swing, Hyundai revealed the concept of the next generation of their Verna there yesterday. This car will be the fifth generation of the Accent (as the Verna is called in international markets) and will go into production in 2017.

The new car follows Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, with the nose looking rather similar to the current generation i20. The hexagonal grille reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz diamond grille is flanked with two sleek projector headlamps, not unlike the ones on the current generation car. The front is definitely more aggressive, you could even call it imposing. From the side though, things have been toned down. The sharp shoulders on the current car have been replaced with smoother, crisper lines. The shape of the car hasn’t really changed much but Hyundai have given this 2017 car a notchback boot.

The current Hyundai Verna gets four engine options — two petrol and two diesel options. The 1.4-litre petrol makes 105bhp and 135Nm of torque and comes mated to five-speed manual transmission. The 1.6-litre petrol makes 121bhp and 155Nm and comes with the option of a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. The car gets 1.4- and 1.6-litre diesels as well — the 1.4-litre oil burner makes 89bhp and 220Nm and comes with a six-speed manual ‘box. The 1.6-litre makes 126bhp and 260Nm and comes with a six-speed manual and the option of a four-speed automatic. This current gen Verna has been around for a while now, it was originally launched in 2010 and in 2015, it got a mid-life facelift.
