Hyundai would launch the updated Verna sedan in the country in the first quarter of 2015, if an ET report is to be believed. The Hyundai Verna Facelift would undergo cosmetic as well as mechanical changes. Although, the new Verna sedan is already on sale in multiple international arenas like Russia and China but with a different name - Solaris.

This move from Hyundai to update Verna is being seen as a retaliating move as due to the arrival of 2014 Honda City and Maruti Ciaz, it hasn't been selling the same numbers as it did prior to the launch of both these sedans. According to the reports, the new Verna would have a updated front fascia with redesigned projector headlamps, a dual-slat chrome grille, and tweaked bumper with daytime running LEDs.

The ongoing model of the sedan has LED DRLs integrated in the headlight cluster. The rear end would be the same, albeit some subtle upgrades in the form of LED units for the brake lights, new reflectors integrated into the bumper and a black underlip would be there. Inside the cabin, there would be no change whatsoever. 

Mechanically, the Verna facelift would retain its 1.4L and 1.6L petrol engines. The 4-speed automatic transmission with the current model might get replaced with a 6-speed gearbox. In Russia, the updated Verna sedan comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, which also comes with the Elantra saloon in India. The new model of Verna is expected to go on sale by March 2015 in India with an expected price range of Rs. 7.5-11 lakhs (Ex. Showroom). It would be the first company model to launch in 2015, followed by the ix25 compact SUV and Elite i20 based crossover.
