Since the facelift of the current generation Hyundai Verna, everybody had it in their mind that an all-new could be the next step by the brand. And as expected, Hyundai finally unveiled the next generation Verna in a nearly production guise at the Beijing Auto Show 2016. The Concept’s design is based on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, which is expected to make an entry in India and global market by 2017.
Looking at the exterior, the concept appears more sleek in contrast to the current version of the Verna. It features a large chrome garnished hexagonal grille edged with projector headlamps and integrated DRLs. With edgy character lines of the redesigned front bumper, the face of the Concept gets some aggressive appearance. The side profile is somewhat similar to the current generation model. While the designers have worked quite well at the rear of the Verna concept, giving it a huge wraparound tail-lamps and a restyled bumper now houses LED lamps.
The current generation of Hyundai Verna is available in four engine options, two petrol and two diesel. The petrol engine is a 1.4-litre producing 106bhp and 135Nm of torque, and a 1.6-litre making 121bhp and 155Nm of torque. On the other hand, the diesel mills are 1.4-litre and a 1.6-litre, producing 89bhp and 220Nm of torque, and 126bhp and 259Nm of torque, respectively. The 1.4-litre variants are connected only with a manual transmission, while the 1.6-litre variants get an option of a 4-speed automatic transmission.
