2023 Hyundai Verna comes in with Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design and sports several changes where its exterior makeup is concerned. Interiors have not been detailed as on date but estimates reveal that the cabin too could see some radical changes in terms of style and comfort.
2023 Hyundai Verna – Benchmark In Luxury And Space
One of the biggest talking points of the new Verna has been its design. Some have criticized it while some have loved it. The design language is completely different to the previous gen Verna. Highlighting these design changes are the unique LED DRLs in the front as well as the rear.
The latest teaser of 2023 Verna shows its LED DRLs in the front as well as at the rear. Along with that, we also get a glimpse of its rear passenger legroom. Hyundai has claimed that the new Verna sets new benchmark in Luxury and Space. Take a look at the teaser below. Interestingly, Hyundai has launched this new Verna teaser just a few minutes Honda Cars India launched the new City facelift.
New-gen Verna will be offered in four trims – EX, S, SX and SX(O). New images show us the changes seen in its exterior design, more particularly its lighting features at the front and rear. It boasts of a connected light feature in the front in a 3 slim light DRL panel setup to form a connected beam stretching the width of the bonnet. It is this same feature that is also seen on models such as the Grandeur and Sonata.
Other design elements in the front also include a new grille flanked by LED headlamps. On its sides it receives sporty creases running from A Pillars to C Pillars. Hyundai has also added a new set of LED tail lamps along with a light bar stretching across the expanse of its boot. New alloy wheels, angular wheel arches, a sunroof and body-coloured faux skid plate will also be a part of its exteriors.
