At the ongoing 2016 Beijing Motor Show, the new 2017 Hyundai Verna concept made global debut today. Seen with a refreshed styling, the mid-sized family sedan will be launched in India next year.

A global car, Hyundai Verna is also known as the Solaris and Accent in some markets across the globe. The new Verna will replace the existing Verna from all markets globally. The launch of new Verna will take place later this year while in India it will only arrive next year.

Speaking about styling updates, 2017 Hyundai Verna will be a more sporty and attractive sedan. The concept shows the new grille design, which is expected to make way on to the production spec variant as it is, and so is the headlight cluster. Lower bumper styling too will be carried forward, except that it will be a bit watered-down.

Longer by 30 mm than the current variant, new Verna stands at 4,440 mm in length, which is equal to the new Honda City. The added length will result in extra legroom for the rear seat passengers.

Interiors too are expected to be refreshed with dashboard layout, leather covered steering wheel, touch-screen infotainment system with navigation, reverse parking camera display, Bluetooth, USB, AUX, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Engine options for India will continue to be the same as the current Verna, two petrol options, and two diesel engine options. These will be in the form of 1.4 liter and 1.6-liter mills. The transmission will be in the form of 5 MT, 6 MT and automatic gearbox (6 AT).

Once the best-selling car in its segment, Hyundai Verna today stands behind Honda City and Maruti Ciaz. With the launch of new Verna, Hyundai India will be hoping to overtake rivals in the segment.
