The Hyundai Verna in its present iteration is certainly a good looking car, however, stiff competition from the Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has certainly hurt its sales. The South Korean car maker though is trying hard to make the mid-size sedan, which is also sold in several other markets under different names, look more attractive.
This time they seem to have taken things to the next level. At the Auto China 2016, being held in the Chinese capital Beijing, Hyundai has showcased the 2017 Verna concept. These pictures shared by the folks at Indian Autos Blog reveal the same Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy but with the sportiness quotient on overdrive.
The big hexagonal grille is well complemented with the slightly larger head lamps (which carry forward the looks of the present version). The aggressive cuts on the front bumper look neat but might be toned down in the production version. The rear end gets wraparound tail lamps which reminds one of their family lineage.
Hyundai however has not revealed any engine details for the Verna concept which is not very surprising. We expect the car to be seen in a production ready form at some point later in the year with an Indian launch next year.
