- The 2020 Hyundai Verna has been showcased at the 2019 Chengdu Motor Show.
- It gets a large floating infotainment screen similar to the Venue as well.
Hyundai has officially taken the wraps off the new 2020 Verna at the ongoing 2019 Chengdu Motor Show. The updated Korean sedan gets comprehensive changes on the exterior styling along with a redesigned cabin.
In terms of styling, the new Verna sports a new iteration of Hyundai’s cascading grille. The chrome-finished fascia has a larger, and sharper headlight design coupled with a chiselled bumper. At the rear, the same aggressive styling continues with wraparound taillights which are now connected over the tailgate. The contrasting bumper has a chrome garnish around it. Also part of the update is newly-designed alloy wheels.
On the inside, the heavily reworked cabin gets a large touchscreen infotainment system mounted on the centre console akin to the one seen on the Venue. It also comes fitted with the BlueLink connectivity system. The HVAC controls remain unchanged and so does the rest of the centre console. Behind the familiar steering wheel, there’s an all-digital instrument cluster with a speedometer on one side and a tachometer on the other. The MID screen in the centre is similar to the outgoing model. This new digital instrument cluster will also be offered with the new Creta.
In terms of powertrain, the new Verna will carry forward its engine options. In the Chinese-spec it only gets a 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine. There are reports of a plug-in hybrid variant as well but nothing has been confirmed at the moment.
The refreshed Hyundai Verna will go on sale in the international markets before the end of this year and the ASEAN-spec model is likely to be revealed after that. We expect some changes on the Indian-spec model when it arrives at our shores sometime in 2020.
