The Hyundai Verna’s next generation, which is also known as the Accent in many countries, has been caught testing under cover for the first time. The vehicle is expected to make its debut in South Korea before coming to other markets such as India.
The camouflaged prototypes offer little information, but it’s clear that the next Hyundai Verna will have a significantly different appearance. The Sensuous Sportiness design concept has been used on the current Sonata all around the world and has now been carried over to the new Elantra.
So, keep an eye out for a big wide grill with highly defined lighting and bodywork cuts and creases on each side of the 2022 Verna. Wide two-part taillights with comprehensive illumination might be seen in the rear as well.
The Hyundai Verna for 2022 will ride on a more advanced version of the existing vehicle’s architecture, which should provide additional interior space. Expect a wraparound dash, planned centre console, and two floating panels, as well as latest Hyundai technology and convenience features such as ADAS, connected car technology, ventilated seats, 360-degree camera with sunroof.
The Verna in India will continue to offer the same engine and gearbox options as today’s model. The 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 116 horsepower and 144 Nm of torque in the current Hyundai Verna, whereas the 1.0-liter turbo unit raises this to 121 hp and 172 Nm.
In terms of performance, the naturally aspirated engine is mated with a six-speed manual as standard and a CVT is available. The turbo-petrol engine has a seven-speed DCT and an optional torque converter automatic with a diesel engine.
The Hyundai Verna will debut in India by the middle to late-twenty22, competing with the Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and future models such as the Skoda Slavia, Toyota Belta, and Volkswagen Virtus. The price range for this vehicle is expected to increase by around Rs 40,000 to 50,000 over the current model.
