Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) is prepping to launch the new generation 2017 Verna C2-segment sedan in India. The all-new Hyundai Verna is likely to price almost the same but will come with many more features, a fresher design and more efficient engines. The latest generation 2017 Hyundai Verna is already on sale in China and Russha. It’s likely to launch here by Diwali this year. It is likely to have a price range of Rs 8.5 Lakh to Rs 13 Lakh. Here’s all the available information on the 2017 Hyundai Verna India launch date, price, specifications, mileage, etc.
2017 Hyundai Verna India Launch Date
|Launch Date (expected)||October 2017|
Hyundai Motor India is yet to officially announce the launch date of the new model 2017 Verna. However, speculations are rife that the 2017 Hyundai Verna India launch date will fall in October, 2017. You can safely expect us to update with you official launch details as soon as we manage to get a word from the manufacturer.

2017 Hyundai Verna Price in India
|Base Model||Rs 8.5 Lakh|
|Top Model||Rs 13.5 Lakh|
Prices of the 2017 model Hyundai Verna will be slightly higher than those of the current car. You can expect a starting price of Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom), while the top-end model could cost roughly Rs 13.5 Lakh. At this price point, the new Verna 2017 will find itself priced lower than the latest Honda City. However, let’s not forget that the Maruti Ciaz is really competitively priced and the new Verna will need to deliver substantially more in every area to justify the higher price and outsell the Ciaz.
2017 Hyundai Verna India Specifications
|Engine Type/ Displacement||1.4 L/1.6 L Petrol||1.4L/1.6 L Diesel|
|Power||106 bhp/121 bhp||89 bhp/126 bhp|
|Torque||135 Nm/155 Nm||220 Nm/259 Nm|
|Transmission (Gearbox)||6-speed MT/6-speed MT or 6-speed AT||6-speed MT/6-speed MT or 6-speed AT|
The 2017 Hyundai Verna for India will get the same engine that power the current model. This means the 2017 Verna will come with four engine options – 1.4 Petrol, 1.6 Petrol, 1.4 Turbo Diesel, 1.6 Turbo Diesel. However, instead of the current 4-speed Automatic transmission, the new 2017 model Hyundai Verna will be sold with 6-speed auto unit. Also, the new Verna might also come with a mild-Hybrid system, which will help the new model become a worthy competitor to the Ciaz Diesel SHVS.

|1.4-litre Petrol||18 KMPL|
|1.6-litre Petrol||17 KMPL|
|1.4-litre Diesel||23 KMPL|

While the engines will come from the new model, mileage figures could actually witness a marginal improvement. The 1.4 Diesel engine could offer as much as 23 KMPL, while the 1.4 Petrol could return a peak mileage of 18 KMPL.

2017 Hyundai Verna India Review – Exterior Design
The production-spec 2017 Hyundai Verna looks much like the concept that was shown last year. It gets a more mature looking exterior thanks to the new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. There are subtle differences between the Russia-spec and the China-spec Verna. The newer Russia-spec Verna gets a different bumper and Hyundai’s new ‘Cascading’ grille design. And that is the one which will come to India.
Up front, Hyundai’s new ‘Cascading’ grille takes centre stage with sleek new swept back headlamps on either side. They get projector units and LED DRLs. Like the current Verna, the upcoming model also features a sloping coupe-like roofline. Hints of the new Elantra can be seen at the back in the form of the subtle ‘kick up’ style spoiler and narrow split tail lamps. Overall, the new design looks smart and should be helpful in attracting customers.
New 2017 Hyundai Verna Interior Review
The Hyundai Verna 2017 gets a fresh new cabin that looks classier than the current car. Designers have kept the dashboard elegant. It gets a neatly integrated touchscreen infotainment system and auto aircon controls placed below it. The model pictured here gets an all-black interior trim with silver highlights. We expect Hyundai India to offer the new Verna with a dual tone black-beige interior treatment. Bits like the steering wheel, gear know, etc. are similar to existing products like the Elite i20 and Creta. We expect Hyundai Verna’s cabin to be more spacious and practical than before.
New 2017 Hyundai Verna India – Engine and Transmission
The current model’s engine lineup is likely to be carried forward to the upcoming car. The new Hyundai Verna will get four engine options – 1.4-litre petrol, 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4-litre diesel and 1.6-litre diesel. The 1.4 and 1.6 petrol engines make 106 bhp and 121 bhp respectively. While the 1.4 and 1.6 diesel engines put out 89 bhp and 126 bhp respectively. The 6-speed manual that comes standard with all engine options will continue. However, the optional 4-speed auto on offer with the 1.6 L Petrol and 1.6 L Diesel engines could be replaced by 6-speed automatic units. Fuel efficiency should witness an improvement.
