Wierd and wacky thread ------->

Looks like Hyundai hired a designer with promises of huge salary but later gave him a 20% paycut. This is his way of taking revenge. Look at the Grill its smiling like our

It definitely deserves some space in "Pics of weird and wacky mod jobs!"

It's all mixed up (and not in a good way) from current verna, fiesta and altis.

That grille reminded me of the first generation Santro.
Some things are hard to let go off. After the european stylised i10, i20 and i30, the korean guys would have been itching to create something of their very own. Well guys, whatever you think of it, just dont get it here.

A related article on World Car Fans say :
The interior has been beefed up by equipment like USB/ Auxiliary inputs for music lovers, a standard PowerBass subwoofer, Bluetooth connectivity and new blue instrumentation lighting replacing the current green lights. Its centre console gets a facelift as well.

All I can say is, WHY??? The only pretty part about the current Verna (in my opinion) was the very Maserati-like front grille. And now they've gone and changed it into this frog like, horrible snout!

Very Korean design. Hyundai is going global like anything, and IMO this is a wrong step to take.

Ooouchhh !!! Am i glad I bought this one in time or what ? That grill is frightening. Looks like chinese demons took over an aging robinhood's soul.

The exaust looks good and the bumpers are still acceptable with their wierd angles but that grill is simply horrendous.

Maybe that grill below that badge can come in handy to frighten daylights out of the kids who mostly end up leaving those scars on our machines with their bicycle stunts or badmintion rackets or what not

I still think that the facelifted one also will continue to nose dive at every speed breaker, unless Hyundai really wants to do something with that.

Hyundai has always been bad with designing grills & front look. Look at the Elantra, Sonata, etc all were examples of designs gone bad & this new iteration of Verna reaffirms the belief!
