This wide body iteration of the new Hyundai Verna is exquisite. I am quite excited to share the details of this attractive rendition. Since 2006, the Verna has established a formidable presence in its category, consistently distinguishing itself with industry-leading features and amenities. However, in its latest version, this premium sedan elevates its game, surpassing tough competition within the segment. It introduces a host of innovations that set it apart as a class leader among its rivals. Let’s delve into the specifics of this latest iteration.

This enticing iteration stems from bimbledesigns on Instagram. I love what the digital artist has done to the fascia of the popular mid-size sedan. He has retained the LED light bar which stretches across the width of the bonnet, but has performed some subtle modifications to the grille and bumper. This includes a massive air intake element underneath the LED DRLs, a sharp splitter, a new front grille, metallic elements on the bonnet to enhance its rugged characteristics and a black Hyundai logo. I find this iteration subtle enough to actually make it to production one day.

Apart from that, I recognize the wide-body stance from the side profile. The rear fender extends way out of the body of the vehicle. The black alloy wheels with red brake callipers add to the overall sporty theme of the mid-size sedan. The side body cladding almost touches the ground, accentuating the low rider and wide body stance even further. At the rear, I find the dovetail boot spoiler and adventurous bumper extremely sporty. The shark fin antenna, the continuous LED bar and the sporty skid plate area complete the wide-body stance of this exciting digital illustration. Overall, I respect the attention to detail on this Verna from the virtual realm.
