After showcasing the 2017 Verna concept at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show, Hyundai introduced the production version of the next-generation Verna for the first time at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show on September 2, in China. Ahead of its showcase, posters of the sedan were spotted at the venue. The sedan will go on sale later this year in China and is likely to be launched in India next year.

In India, the current-generation Verna was once the segment best seller, until the fourth-generation Honda City came into the picture. Its sales took a further blow when Maruti Suzuki introduced the Ciaz and later on the mild-hybrid version of the same. Even the mid-life update of Verna (came out in 2015) was unable to boost its sales figures. The sales figures cloaked by the current-gen Verna are no match to the figures attained by the older model. Hyundai also changed its name to ‘Verna 4S’ from Fluidic Verna with the introduction of the facelift. The automaker soon added features such as a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment, shark-fin antenna and others to the facelifted version, but Verna’s sales never really picked up. 

 

Now, the 2017 Verna is coming with all guns blazing. The 2017 sedan has now adopted Hyundai’s latest – Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 – design language, making it look similar to the latest Hyundai sedans such as the recently launched 2016 Elantra and the global Sonata. The new Verna was spied without any camouflage in July. Check out more pictures and what it has to offer in terms of design, features, and mechanicals: 2017 Hyundai Verna – This Is It!
