The new 2017 Verna was showcased in China at the Chengdu Auto Show last month and now has been launched in the country. India is expected to get the same car with the current Verna more than five years old. To be launched next year, the 2017 Verna is a new generation car and carries forward the legacy of sculpted body lines.

The Verna that is sold in China comes with similar engine options as the one currently on sale in India. The 1.4-litre petrol develops 100bhp while the 1.6-litre produces 122bhp of power – similar to the India-spec cars. Since diesel engines are banned in China, India will get the 1.4-litre and the 1.6-litre diesel engine options in India with power delivery similar to the existing engines. Both petrol and diesel engines will get six-speed manual gearboxes while the six-speed automatic transmissions will be offered only on the 1.6-litre engines.

The 2017 Hyundai Verna styling is inspired by the new Elantra that was launched in India recently. The hexagonal chrome lined grille gets horizontal slats and the air dam gets a honey comb mesh grille. The swept back headlamps come with black inserts. The profile continues with the coupe-ish sloping roofline and a strong shoulder-line that extends to the boot. The 2017 Verna measures at 4,380mm length, 1,728mm width and 1,460mm in height up from 4375mm, 1,700mm and 1,475mm respectively.

The Verna is priced from about Rs 7 lakh for the entry-level car while the top-spec car goes slightly above Rs 10 lakh after converting the prices to Indian currency. When it comes to India, we think the pricing might be close to Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) with the top spec going beyond Rs 11 lakh for the petrol automatic and up to Rs 14 lakh for the diesel powered automatic.
