The new Hyundai Verna has just been launched at a handsome price

Putting an end to anticipations brought about by several teasers, scoops and spottings, Hyundai Motor India has finally launched the new Hyundai Verna here.

Here are more details about this car.


The new Verna could be the best-looking sedan in its class. It is built on Hyundai’s new-age ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy. The manufacturer calls this the ‘new Hyundai face’. Verna 2023 looks sporty and futuristic. The Korean marque has admitted that the base thought for this design came from something sci-fi like a spaceship.

Key design highlights of the new 6th generation Verna include sleek headlamps, with full-width LED positioning lamps and DRLs, a parametric grille with touches of Chrome on it, a clean fastback silhouette, Z-shaped character lines, 16-inch alloy wheels, multiple touches of Satin Chrome, parametric connected LED tail lamps, and a neatly integrated sharkfin antenna.
