While older model was called just Hyundai Verna Fluidic, new version is termed 4S Verna Fluidic. 4S stands for Style, Safetly, Speed, and Sophistication. P.S. – In all the images below, the older model is on top.
Front fascia of new Verna is completely new (for India). Previous model looked somewhat stylish but for the most part just sober, whereas new design expresses vogue and confidence to take out the competition. Projector headlamps are edgy, fog lamps are inverted and the aged-out hexagonal form factor of grille section is finally erased.
Except for the bigger snout on new Verna, rest of the car looks pretty much the same, for good reason. Alloy wheels look highly similar and character lines on the body are also preserved, which still goes well with the overall design of the car.
New front end looks more suitable to the rest of the sedan than previous model. Outside Rear View Mirror (ORVM), Day Light Opening (DLO), shoulder creases and chrome door handles are retained. After all, this is just a facelift, not a new generation model.
Twin exhaust pipe is ditched for no-exhaust-pipe look. Lower part of the bumper is coated in black. Boot lid is unaltered except for new chrome strip above number plate dent. There is no difference in badging.
Touchscreen infotainment system similar to the one offered in Hyundai Solaris in Russia was spied on one of the test mules in Chennai, testing GPS and Navigation. Looks like the piece of equipment is on hold for introduction at a later stage, similar to the case of Maruti Ciaz and Honda Mobilio.
