Horrible. Looking at the grille, it looks like the car is sad.

My eyes burn. Someone get me some eyedrops please.

It transforms the resale of the older pieces for sure

Quick poll!

Who else thinks the verna's front end is actually melting?

I guess thats why its called the verna transform, its going to melt away and take shape as something else, watch this thread for the action!
:P

The grille looks horrible and bulky bumpers too. I love the current looks of my Verna. Would love to change the exhaust that of the new.

I prefer the old look of Verna.This has too many curves in the front.Not appealing at all.

I think the design team at Hyundai have totally lost it. This car looks more chinese than korean. Maybe they should take a few tips from their KIA brand in terms of design.

Oh my god, please the brilliant engine really needs some good design, they will surely lose some customers for the way it looks itself, i guess

Just when I thought Hyundai was starting to design some fantastic looking cars (i10/20/30), this one comes up! I would take the current one, but would I? They took up a not-so-decent looking car (in my opinion) and made it even worse.
