That front end is little bit toyota-ish and the headlights from this angle, look like they've drawn inspiration from the Suzuki YL1 sedan. Gees! First Honda with the tail lights and now Hyundai with the headlights

At the front however, designers have carried out a comprehensive makeover (though the Chinese Verna looks different to begin with) and the headlights and grille remind us of the Hyundai Mistra.

We’re not quite sure if Hyundai will use this facelift for the Verna sold in markets such as India and Russia (where its called the Solaris) given that design tastes and expectations may vary from China to India. However, our source confirms that the Verna facelift will sport projector headlights, as seen in this image.
The fine print in the article from IAB and i will be happy if they don't ever bring this Camry'ish look to India.

With New Honda City launched and SX4 replacement round the corner, Verna facelift was expected. Let's see if they bring the facelift to the AutoExpo in Feb.

Same thoughts!!

This looks like Toyota...The front grille sort of reminds me of the upcoming Corolla to a great extent.

It seems like all the major players would have some bits of YL1 before it launches...

Sort of taking away the freshness of the Suzuki sedan completely

Yes it does look a bit Toyota-ish - from the 'not so clear' images seen.
I hope the Indian face-lift is different - somehow, the present one is more appealing (the front view).

Hideous. Glad it's a China-specific Verna and won't be coming here.

The headlamps remind me - new name could be Verna Fluidic Transform?

Looks nice, the car has to face competition from Honda City now. What needs to be seen are the changes to the interiors.

If they do not do anything to improve the rear seating comfort, this facelift will be of no use.

The car scores zero on rear seat comfort where as for Honda City it is a thumbs up.
