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.

2023 Hyundai Verna Dimensions
The new Verna is larger than the one it replaces. It is now longer, with a longer wheelbase and wider, even when it remains unchanged in overall height. Below are the exact dimensions of the car.
The new Verna is now the widest in its class (36 mm wider than before)- and the same translates to more room on the inside, especially at the rear seat, and a large boot that can hold 528 liters facilitating easy loading. The largest-in- class wheelbase (70 mm more than the previous car) also adds to this.
The new Verna gets a good-looking, futuristic design for its cabin. The design has numerous premium and luxurious bits at multiple places- like soft touch trims, premium leather upholstery, leather wrapped steering and gear knob, etc. The new Verna gets a Black-Beige dual tone as its cabin colour scheme. The Verna Turbo variants come with all Black cabin with Red inserts.
The cabin gets a driver-oriented design and comes with a connected, curved display cluster- comprising the large infotainment touchscreen and digital instrumentation.
