@Ronny- Are you sure it was the New Verna??? I dont think Verna has undergone a facelift in other markets. If you do have more info or pics of the facelift in Korea do post it.

Good to know that the grill of the Verna is getting a facelift. To me, it is the ugliest grill in that segment today, and it looks like they have lifted the Santro's grill and placed it on an 8-lac car.

With the facelift, I hope the car looks better.

Guess the following must be the newly spotted Verna. The changes are minor cosmetically and is called the "Sport" in Korea as a Google search shows.

Nabhi, I hope you like this atleast .

The new grille looks more like the Getz one. Nevertheless, not that great.

Which bangalore highway was this ? Mumbai-BLR or Chennai-BLR ? And where are the photos ?

Like said before that must have been the new Elantra, not the new Verna.

The new grill does not make the verna look a single point better, IMHO. But then, i always liked the verna's looks, although it surely is no drool maal like SX4 and Fiesta 1.6S. Where the verna really needs improvement is in the mechanicals and underpinnings..to handle the insane torque a bit better !

Default Its the Verna only

sorry guys for the delay in response, well guys its the Verna only not the elantra, its true that hyundai is planning to launch the new elantra but the car has arrived in the chennai plant but the test has not started. a golden color santafe is in the hyundai factory i dont know if they are going to test that as of now. but that is the replacment of terracan but its pricing is going to be expensive.

you can check the new design here in this website
verna

IMHO the looks are very familiar, probably the old accent grill dressed up a lil bit.

that grill is there in the korean version of verna since it's launch in 2006, the only difference between it and the Indian version is the addition of a chrome bar, nothing new here.

off topic:

following are the schedule of launches by hyundai according to a person working for Hyundai motor India Ltd:

Diwali: I-20
November: Santa Fe
January 2009: I-10 Crdi
avante: Not sure
