Launched in the year 2011 and armed with Hyundai’s striking Fluidic design language and a variety of trim levels, the Verna has been quite a success for the Korean carmaker. Being such a revelation, it still is the best-selling car in its class despite the arrival of newer breed of cars (Read: Compact SUVs).
The Fluidic design language was great benefit to the Verna as the car manages to look thoroughly modern and fresh even today. Hyundai nevertheless is giving its popular sedan a midlife makeover for 2014, as can be seen from these spy images.
As most of us would agree, there’s really not much that needs changing in terms of design. However, the test mule clad in heavy camouflage suggests otherwise. Perhaps Hyundai is readying a comprehensive list of updates for the new Verna.
Under the hood, we expect the facelifted Verna to come with the same range of four cylinder engines comprising of 1.6-litre CRDI diesel and 1.4/1.6-litre VTVT petrol engines.
Competing against the likes of Volkswagen Vento, Fiat Linea and Honda City, the current Verna still remains in the leading, thanks to its striking looks and long list of features. Going by Hyundai’s recent launches, this new updated model is only likely to extend its lead.
