New 2019 Hyundai Verna facelift could look similar to the Elantra, which made its global debut a few days ago. Thanks to this new face, new design language from Hyundai, there is now a digital render which is created by artist Kleber Silva. It can be seen in the images below.
Borrowing heavily from the recently unveiled 2019 Hyundai Elantra, the new Verna facelift gets extensive restying where it exteriors are concerned while it also gets sheet metal changes. Headlamps are in a new design along with a redesigned front bonnet, new alloy wheels, boot lid, tail lamp and rear bumper.
In India, 2019 Hyundai Verna facelift will get new petrol and diesel engine options which will now comply with the new BS VI emission norms coming into effect from 1st April 2020. In compliance with these new regulations, Hyundai is planning to not only downsize their engines but also lower power output.
The 1.5 liter petrol engine has not yet been detailed as to power and torque figures but the 1.5 liter diesel will offer 115 hp power and 250 Nm torque. The company could also pair these engines with a 48V hybrid system.
This hybrid system will be able to switch automatically between engine power and release of electric power thus bringing down emissions even further. Before making their way onto the Hyundai Verna facelift, these new engines will be seen powering the Kia Trazor/Kia Tusker set for launch in India in early 2019.
Once the new Hyundai Verna facelift is launched in India, it will be seen as competition to the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift, the new Honda City and upcoming Tata X445 sedan.
