Just when we thought that Hyundai was getting more mainstream with their design, they have to go and launch something that screams "Korean" from every angle.

And why are they sticking with the Transform badge when it was such a huge flop on the Sonata. I can see Linea and Fiesta sales increasing after this monstrosity is launched. Let's hope they don't skimp on equipment at least.

if we remove the two slanting grille from the main grille, it may look decent. If we can't remove, it will look ugly from the front.

lets wait and watch how it looks in real life. just my opinion.

I somehow didn't like the front grill and Fog's.

I feel rather than round Fog lights they could have stick the existing one or come up with something that fits the new design.

Thumbs down Ughhh !!!!

Looks like an ageing Sea Lion's face or is it more like the Walrus !! What was Hyundai thinking ?? I can see the sales sinking !!

This hedious front design may help Hyundai clear their present stock of Vernas, which almost looks nice in comparison

A simpler front without all the dramatic lines may have been way better !




Best of luck - Hyundai

Looks like a million rupee lizard waiting to eat a cockroach, or maybe a grasshopper.

I agree with everyone here, Verna Transform is UGLY, this facelift looks even worse than a DC mod.

Could not agree with you more Maybe because the die for the front grille & bumper wore off - so they thought - why not change & call it an "UPGRADE"

There are going to be gullible people who will simply buy it because it's a "naya model" (new model)


GRrrrrrrrrrrrrr

The current Verna is a better looking car. This is quite funny, because globally Hyundai's design has come a long way, namely:

a. Hyundai Genesis and Genesis Coupe.
b. The new Sonata.
c. The new Elantra.

Talk about India again being shortchanged.
