On March 21, 2023, the next-generation Hyundai Verna will debut in India. The mid-sized vehicle is now available for booking at a low cost of Rs 25,000. Hyundai has released a new teaser film for the Verna, marketed as the Accent in international markets and as the Accent in India.
2023 With various revisions to its outward composition, the Hyundai Verna debuts with Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design. Although the interiors have not been fully described as of yet, estimates indicate that they could also undergo significant alterations in terms of comfort and style.
Hyundai Verna 2023: A Standard of Luxury and Spaciousness
The new Verna’s design has been one of the most talked-about aspects of the vehicle. It has received both praise and criticism. The design aesthetic is entirely different from the Verna of the previous generation. The distinctive LED DRLs in both the front and back draw attention to these design upgrades.
The most recent Verna 2023 teaser depicts the vehicle’s LED DRLs on both the front and rear of the vehicle. We can also see how much room there is for the rear passengers. According to Hyundai, the new Verna establishes new standards for luxury and space. See the teaser down below. It’s interesting to note that Hyundai released this new Verna teaser only a short time after Honda Motors India unveiled the refreshed City.
New-gen Four trim levels of the Verna will be available: EX, S, SX, and SX (O). The exterior design has changed, as seen in new pictures, which particularly highlight the front and back lighting features. It has a connected light feature up front, where three thin DRL panels are arranged in a connected beam that spans the width of the bonnet. The Grandeur and Sonata models share this particular characteristic as well.
A redesigned grille and LED headlamps are two more front design features. From A Pillars to C Pillars, it gains athletic creases on its sides. In addition, Hyundai has upgraded its LED tail lamps and added a light bar that spans the length of its boot. Its exterior features will also include body-colored faux skid plates, new alloy wheels, sharp wheel arches, and a sunroof.
