Hyundai revealed the facelifted 2020 Verna at Chengdu. Though the car shown was for the Chinese market, a similar car is expected in India in 2020. The car has undergone major changes to the grille and bumper to bring it in line with the new family look similar to the Ioniq or Sonata. Though the looks are polarising, the new Verna has a wider grille with thicker horizontal slats. It has an entirely new bumper with a wide air dam. All the lights have been located together in the headlamps comprising the DRL, and LED as well as projector headlamps.
The silhouette of the car has not undergone much change and retains the shape of the outgoing car with a wide C pillar and notch-back boot. However, there are major changes at the rear which has more angles and slashes giving the rear end a cluttered look. The tail lamps have been extended across the rear end in keeping with the new trend. The arrow-shaped rear lamps do look attractive and the rear three quarters is the most appealing angle to look at the car.
The new Verna facelift is 4,405mm in length, 1,720mm in width, 1,455mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,60mm. Inside, the car gets a large touch screen infotainment system which has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay The new Verna facelift is 4,405mm in length, 1,720mm in width, 1,455mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,60mm.

The Indian car is expected to get a 1.5 litre BS VI 115 BHP/ 144 N-m petrol as well as 115 BHP/ 250 N-m diesel engines with six speed manual, CVT or torque converter. While the CVT may do duty on the petrol engine, the torque converter would be reserved for the diesel.
