Hyundai Verna 2017 took the center stage at the Auto China 2016 show in late April to introduce a Hyundai Verna 2017 brand new concept that previewed the upcoming facelifted version of the Verna. The production version has made world debut at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show. With India launch not too far away, here’s everything you should know about the Hyundai Verna 2017: The Hyundai Verna 2017 will be powered by 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel naturally aspirated engines that will produce power between 98bhp to 120bhp. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual and automatic. The automatic though will be available only on the 1.6-litre versions of the car. The new gen Verna will be making its way to the Indian market only next year to pose as a rival to the likes of Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz in the segment. The 2017 Hyundai Verna for India will get the same engine that power the current model. This means the 2017 Verna will come with four engine options – 1.4 Petrol, 1.6 Petrol, 1.4 Turbo Diesel, 1.6 Turbo Diesel. However, instead of the current 4-speed Automatic transmission, the new 2017 model Hyundai Verna will be sold with 6-speed auto unit. Also, the new Verna might also come with a mild-Hybrid system, which will help the new model become a worthy competitor to the Ciaz Diesel SHVS.

The new Hyundai Verna 2017 has been teased yet again ahead of its impending launch in August this year. In the sketch released by Hyundai, the interior of the sedan is teased, which divulges subtle details about the cabin. Readying to step into the third generation, teaser image of the new-generation Verna was released lately by Hyundai Verna 2017, giving inkling of design changes on the sedan. Sporting LED daytime running lights, the sedan bears resemblance to the new Elantra up front. The overall design and styling changes on the new-gen Verna will be copious, for an all-new look. Besides, it will receive a host of new equipment. Spied images of the model infer slight difference in visual terms between the India-spec Verna and the global model. One must note that the basic silhouette and most of the design elements will be carried over from the previous model.
Built on Hyundai Verna 2017 Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy, the new Hyundai Verna 2017 will share most of the design and styling bits with the current-gen Elantra. Styled aggressively, the front profile packs in projector headlamps with integrated LED DRLs and Hyundai’s quintessential cascading grille with chrome accents. The new bonnet sporting character lines and reworked bumper with horizontal fog lamps further add up to the assertive look.
New Hyundai Verna 2017 Specifications
As mentioned above, the new-generation model will remain intact under the hood. That said the power will continue to come from the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol & diesel engines. While the power output is likely to remain unchanged, Hyundai could alter the engines for higher fuel economy. The petrol 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol engines will be tuned to generation maximum power of 105bhp with 135Nm and 121bhp with 155Nm torque respectively.
Transmission duties will be carried out by the conventional 5-speed and 6-speed manual units. In addition, there will be an optional 6-speed automatic gearbox. If Hyundai plans to bring in a hybrid variant, it could come with a 1.6-litre oil burner on the range topping trim. Sides have been retained, save for the new diamond cut alloy wheels. While at the back, it comes with LED taillights, new boot lid and reworked rear bumper. The altered proportions carve out more space for the occupants seated inside. In terms of features, the sedan is expected to borrow the touchscreen infotainment system from Solaris. The infotainment system will additionally come with navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay compatibility and Android Auto. The feature list will also include an automatic air condition controls and engine start stop button.
New Hyundai Verna 2017 Mileage
While the Hyundai Verna 2017 will carry forward the same engines from the current model, though the fuel economy is likely to be slightly more than the outgoing Verna. This will be achieved by tweaking the engines to make them more frugal. The estimated mileage for the 1.4-litre petrol unit is 18kmpl opposed to the 17kmpl for the 1.6-litre engine. Diesel engines will be more fuel efficient, expected to return 25kmpl on 1.4-litre and 19kmpl on 1.6-litre versions.
Engine line-up on the new Hyundai Verna 2017 will be carried over from the current line-up. The petrol variants will use 1.4-litre & 1.6-litre unit in petrol & diesel guise. Choice of transmission on the carline will include the same manual and auto units. Reports in media suggest that Hyundai Verna 2017 is contemplating a mild-hybrid variant that will sit at the top of the range, however with the increased cess on hybrids post GST, it remains to be seen if Hyundai Verna 2017 still brings in a mild-hybrid variant. With copious changes expected on the sedan, the new Hyundai Verna price is likely to change upwardly, though prices have already been revised in line with GST, therefore it is unlikely to witness stark change on that front.
In line with other Hyundai Verna 2017 cars, the new Verna will be built on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design tenet. It will sit on an updated chassis, and use of high-strength steel will make the car lighter as well as stronger than the current model. With a changed suspension mechanism, 2017 Verna will have improved dynamics and handling. Most of the styling changes will be made in tandem with the new-gen Elantra. The sedan will also receive dimensional changes, making the sedan 15mm longer, 29mm wider than before.
The face gets cascading grille, projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights (DRLs), new bonnet, reworked bumper, pentagonal LED fog lamps and sculpted bumper with central air-dams etc.
On the side, it sports new diamond cut alloy wheels, sloping roofline, chrome door handles and blacked-out C-pillar. In a bid to revamp the rear look, the 2017 Verna gets redesigned taillamps with LED elements, LED turn indicators and a new integrated roof spoiler.
