Hyundai Motor India is all set to officially launch the 2023 Verna facelift on March 21 and on Monday, released the design render sketches of the sedan. While bookings for the 2023 Hyundai Verna facelift has already been opened, the sketches offer the first glimpse into how the Verna model has been updated in terms of its exterior styling as well as proportions.

The 2023 Hyundai Verna facelift boasts of a much more pronounced front grille which is highlighted from above by a stretched DRL bar across the tip of the bonnet. The reworked headlights now sit on either side of the grille and also appear to be sleeker and with LED treatment. The front bumper and air intakes too have been redesigned entirely. The bonnet has four prominent character lines and is scooped downwards, possibly to help with both visual aesthetics and aerodynamics.

From the side, the 2023 Hyundai Verna has a stretched profile. There have been clear indications that the Koreans have worked on providing more backseat space which has been a real and valid complaint from previous versions of the sedan. The sixth-generation Verna gets fresh alloys and prominent body lines which begin from the A-pillar and goes almost till where the C-pillar is at. And while the tail light design has not been revealed, expect a fresh take here with LED lights too.

2023 Hyundai Verna: Rivals

Once launched, 2023 Hyundai Verna will renew its battle against the Honda City which too is ready with an update. Verna also rivals Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Skoda Slavia and Volkswagen Virtus in a fast-shrinking mid-size sedan space that has been conceding turf to SUVs.
