Like we said, the engines come from the last-generation model. This means there isn’t a significant difference in the mileage. That said, let’s not forget that there’s no 1.4-litre engine option this around and hence, the old car enjoys a slightly higher mileage. The Petrol models offer up to 17.70 KMPL. The Diesel engines should offer up to 24.75 KMPL.

Quite obviously, the new Verna (Accent) will offer more features than its predecessor. As far as comfort and convenience features are concerned, the new 2017 Hyundai Verna will come loaded to its brim with all kinds of comforts and luxuries one can expect from a car of its class. Hyundai is known to offer segment-best features and the new Verna shouldn’t be any different. Safety-wise, the features list should include dual front airbags across all its trims. A full quote of 6-airbags could be available on the top-end trim. Also, the car will offer ABS and EBD. It’s not for sure bit the new 2017 model Verna might even offer disc-brakes on all wheels. Once again, we’ll update this section with concrete details post car’s market launch.

New 2017 Hyundai Verna Exterior Design

The new 2017 Hyundai Verna (new Accent) builds upon the manufacturer’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. Hence, the new model goes on to look more modern and a lot more stylish. Let’s not forget the current Verna has found many takers owing to its rather radical styling. We expect the new model to similarly impress the car buying lot. We say this as the new car looks better sculpted and a lot fresher.

The latest generation Accent’s front-end is characterized by a hexagonal grille that is typical of all modern-day Hyundai cars. The bumper looks sporty and the sleek headlamps lend this car a pretty athletic touch. The car’s front-end is definitely a lot more upmarket now. The side profile is also all-new. That said, there’s still a touch of the last-generation Verna here. However, taut surfaces and bold creases, together with the stylish alloys, help the car look modern and attractive. At the rear, the twin-pod taillamps lend the new model Verna an Elantra-like rear-end. The rear bumper also looks sporty but we’ve got a feeling that the 2017 Verna will suffer from a high loading lip for the boot.

New 2017 Hyundai Verna Dimensions

Length 4,385 mm
Width 1,729 mm
Height 1,450 mm
Wheelbase 2,580 mm
Ground Clearance 170 mm

If we talk about the dimensions, the new 2017 Verna is not just longer but even wider than the last-generation. This means that the new Verna will offer more legroom and seating three in the rear shouldn’t be a concern. That said, the new Verna is nowhere close to the really spacious Maruti Ciaz. This is one area where the Ciaz enjoys a clear advantage over all its rivals. This should continue even after the launch of the new Verna.

New 2017 Hyundai Verna Interior

Much like the exterior, the interior of the car is all-new. It comes with a fresh design and many new features to catch your fancy. The car gets a very attractive design for its dashboard. Taking centre-stage here is the new touchscreen infotainment unit. The centre console has a very minimalistic feel to it. The steering wheel has a two-spoke design and the rim’s thickness seems to be just right. The aricon vents flank the infotainment unit and there triangle shape lends the dashboard a rather sporty touch. The vents on the two extreme corners of the dashboard are trapezoidal in shape.

The new Verna is both longer and wider than the last-generation model. This means that there are enough chances of 2017 model boasting more room inside. The legroom seems to have improved by a fair margin. Also, thanks to more width, seating three in the rear shouldn’t be an issue. Overall, the new Verna 2017’s cabin impresses with its design and a long list of features. We’re pretty sure it will offer a more comfortable environment than the last-generation’s interior setup.

Speaking about the new car, Mr. Y.K Koo, Managing Director & CEO, HMIL said, “ We are proud to announce the unveiling of the most awaited and aspirational Next Gen Verna for Indian market. The 5th generation Next Gen Verna is a true expression of a Superior Sedan crafted with perfection and excellence in Engineering.
