This has to be one of the worst grills I have ever seen. The headlights look even more bug eyed than ever.

The Genesis looks very good in comparison. I can't believe the same company designed both. Did they outsource the Genesis design to someone else?

This car can hands down win worst visual appeal upgrade award. Looks like the designer was on dope when he designed the front bumper.

No synchronization nor any design asthetics, simple cris-crossing wont get you a good design.

An already average looking car got upgraded to worse looking car.

Some cars look better in real than what we feel looking at pics. I sincerely hope that is the case here. And by a large margin.

Is it only me that the modified (PSed) grill looks like a inverted Hanger?

Is it just me? The PSed Verna looks muscular with some lines inspired from the Skyline! Would like to see it here in India!

I don't understand why Hyundai likes the rear of the Verna so much that they haven't changed it even after two facelifts! The Verna always looked good from the front. It was the rear that was ugly and needed a change. But looking at this one, I don't think Hyundai is ever going to change the arse of the Verna.

Looks as bad as the current Verna---both have hideous grills. Even this new model has those grass-hopper like headlamps. Gawd, when will Hyundai learn?

The grille is horrible to say the least. It is looking like an ugly space animal. The present Verna is a much better looking car.
