All-new Hyundai Verna spotted again

It's not news anymore that Hyundai is going to launch the all-new Verna in India in the first quarter of 2011. Hyundai has been making it clear by sending the lightly camouflaged Verna for test just-about everywhere in Chennai. But, as far as I know, these should be the closest and clearest shots yet of the new Verna ever captured in India. Thanks to my friend, who managed to take these snaps at 01:00 AM in the midnight, with the car parked close to his home.  

Its once again clear from these shots that we will be getting the Russian-spec hexagonal grille and front-end treatment in India and not the Chinese-spec horizontal slated grille. While enough has been said about how good the exterior design is and really transforms the current Verna's looks, these shots also throw light into the interiors.

Starting from the much-loved, three-spoke steering wheel of the i20, the two-tone beige and black dashboard to the satin silver finish in the center console, door handles and the steering wheel, the interiors look classy and much better to the existing Verna Transform. Being Hyundai, you can also expect the quality, fit and finish to be top-notch, loosing out only may be to the Honda City.

This car also seems to have an automatic transmission with the option of slotting the lever into a second gate for driving in semi-automatic mode. In Hyundai terms, its called H-Matic or Shiftronic in other models and we shouldn't be surprised if its called the same in this model too. With the options of manual and automatic transmissions and its usual arsenal of  Gamma petrol and CRDi diesel engines, expect the new Verna to offer one of the widest choices in the premium mid-size segment.


  1. Thats a nice catch. I was waiting for the interior pics. Many times we indians dont get the same interiors as other countries but this verna seems to have the same interior as in korea and other countries.

  2. @ above - It would be very nice if you can reveal your identity when posting comments.
    Regarding the interiors of the new Verna, rest assured that we will be getting the same interiors as other international markets. Hyundai is always known for best-in-class interiors.
