Hyundai Verna 2023 teased again; new details emerge ahead of launch
Hyundai Motor has revealed more details about the new generation Verna compact sedan, which is all set to be launched in India on March 21. The Korean carmaker has released the second teaser video of the new Verna, which shows more features that will be included in the upcoming model. For the first time, Hyundai has shown the new design of the alloy wheels. The teaser video has revealed the driver display of the new Verna as well.
Earlier, Hyundai had partially revealed the front face of the new Hyundai Verna, which has undergone several changes. It now wears a sharper and sportier face with a redesigned grille. Wrapped in parametric patterns, the grille will be highlighted by a LED lightbar stretching across the width of the bonnet. It will also have a redesigned bumper and new foglamp casing besides LED headlight units.
The design of the new alloy wheels are quite close to the sketch Hyundai had shared earlier. The driver display looks similar to all the new generation Hyundai and Kia models. Hyundai is expected to offer ADAS functionality in the new Verna. Hyundai already offers the feature in models like Tucson SUV. Addition of this feature in Verna will help it rival Honda City, which was launched on Thursday with the same feature.
