New-gen 2017 Hyundai Verna brochure leaked ahead of upcoming launch
Hyundai is all set to launch the third-generation Verna in India on August 22, 2017. However, ahead of the car’s official launch, brochure scans of the new Verna 2017 have leaked on the internet, giving comprehensive and detailed information regarding the new model’s feature list and variant distribution.
According to the leaked brochure scans, the 2017 Hyundai Verna will be offered in a total of four trim levels – E, EX, SX and SX(O). Being the entry-level model, the E variants will come with basic features like central locking, manual AC, power steering and power windows. However, the EX variant will add automatic headlamps, automatic climate control, reverse parking sensors and camera, keyless entry, height adjustable front seats and a 5-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth to the feature list. Additionally, alloy wheels will also be on offer with the automatic variants of the EX trim.
Moving up the ladder, the new Verna SX will be loaded with projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights (DRLs), 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, 16-inch diamond cut alloys and electrically foldable ORVMs. Meanwhile, the top-end SX(O) variant will come with Smart Key, 6 airbags, Auto Link, electric sunroof, ventilated seats and leather upholstery.
The 2017 Hyundai Verna will come with a total of 7 colour options – Phantom Black, Sleek Silver, Stardust, Fiery Red, Flame Orange, Polar White and Siena Brown. Out of these, the last four are all-new additions to the Verna’s colour palette.
The leaked brochure has also revealed final specifications of the 2017 Hyundai Verna. There will just be two engine options on offer – a 1.6-litre Gamma petrol with 123 PS and 15.4 Kim of torque and a 1.6-litre Credit diesel rated at 128 PS and 26.5 keg. Both these engines can be opted with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AT gearbox. Interestingly, the 4-speed AT of the previous-gen model has been given a farewell, similar to the smaller 1.4-litre engines of the predecessor.
With the third-gen Verna’s India launch, Hyundai will be hoping to bring back some sales numbers that it has lost to the Maruti Ciaz and Honda City in the past couple of years. Whether or not the Korean automaker will be able to achieve this goal is something that only time will tell.

New 2017 Hyundai Verna Interior
The 2017 Hyundai Verna looks fresh and premium inside the cabin. The major highlight of the interior includes all-black interior trim with silver accents, elegant dashboard, auto air-con controls positioned below the integrated touchscreen infotainment system. What looks familiar here is the gear know, steering wheel etc borrowed from Creta and Elite i20. We expect the car maker to offer dual tone black-beige interior and also a more spacious and practical cabin as compared to the predecessor.
New Hyundai Verna Exterior
If you happen to remember the concept version revealed few months ago, MY 2017 Verna production-spec looks lot similar. Owing to the car maker’s new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, the car looks evolutionary yet sophisticated. Every single panel imparts a fresh look to the car, but the coupe-like roofline has been retained from the current Verna. The new hexagonal grille gives it an Audi-like look, while the swept back headlamps have been detailed with customary L-shaped DRLs, projectors and chrome. Moving to the rear end, the narrow split tail lamp and ‘kick up’ style spoiler will instantly remind you of new Elantra. The new 2017 Verna is a head turner indeed and its fresh and catchy looks is sure to entice customers.
