New-Gen Hyundai Verna Spotted Testing Again, India Launch In 2023

Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) was caught testing the all-new Verna on public roads for the first time earlier this year. Since then, the prototype has been spotted a few times, and the new generation Verna was spotted in South Korea just before the start of local testing.

It is expected to go on sale in India next year, and the latest spy images taken in Delhi-NCR show the front fascia in a blurry state, as well as the side and rear profiles. Despite the heavy camouflage, we can see some interesting features on the 2023 Hyundai Verna, such as its low-slung profile and wide track.

The low-hanging nose is reminiscent of the latest Elantra and Sonata sold in foreign markets. The upcoming Verna will also be based on the brand’s Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy, with a sleeker LED headlamp cluster that flows into the more prominent front grille and a set of newly designed alloy wheels.

New-Gen Hyundai Verna Highlights

Other highlights will include a redesigned bumper section with new fog lamps and wider air inlets, a more muscular bonnet, a fastback-styled roofline with a larger boot, sharper LED tail lamps connected by a thin LED light strip, and a new rear bumper. The midsize sedan will be built on a new platform that will allow for larger proportions and a more spacious interior.

New-Gen Hyundai Verna Interior

Interior features will most likely include ADAS-based functionality. In terms of performance, the existing 1.5-liter petrol and 1.5-liter diesel engines may be retained. However, the more powerful 1.4-liter turbo GDI petrol cannot be ruled out as a direct competitor to the 1.5-liter turbo versions of the Volkswagen Virtus and Skoda Slavia.

To increase efficiency, the South Korean automaker could use mild hybrid technology, and an idle start/stop system could also be made available.
