re: 2023 Hyundai Verna launched at 10.9 lakhs!

For long I have avoided Hyundai because none of their cars age that well. Every 3 years they try to drastically change the design language which means your car will end up looking terribly out dated in 5-6 years.

Kia tried to change it a bit with Seltos and hopefully continues to launch more sensible looking cars in future.

Verna design sketches were good(obviously appeared more wider, longer car) and the real pics look very average and "odd" because of realistic dimensions of this car for the segment.

Wow! That's an ugly and most probably unsafe car loaded to the gills with features. No wonder I expect it to be a big seller

Compare this to the clean, crisp design language on the Ioniq which is also built properly, why do the gimmicks take priority when coming to Indian models?

If the Korean Accent are what we are going to get as the Verna then it feels like there's just too much happening at the rear. The front led bar is just bad design as well.

Hope some of the design elements with the lights get a bit subtle. Love the body shape though.

IMO keeping it slightly minimal would be far more attractive. Did a quick render!

Slavia still is the best looking car of this segment, Virtus being close second. While the seats of the new Verna look comfortable, rear seat is placed on the lower side even by sedan standards.

Personally I prefer the Virtus' look over the Slavia, even the Slavia feels like there is a lot of going with unnecessary cuts and creases. But it's still a way better looking vehicle than this. The new City is pretty good looking too.

I always find that cars look different when I see them in person. I do not find the new Verna attractive basis the images shared. Probably because I like the traditional headlamp designs better.

Hyundai would fire you(the designer) for such a blasphemy few last min bits here and there are a must to complete the overdone design !!

Waiting for more clear shots/videos, until then I will hold my judgement.

Looks like a Stormtrooper, right?

Hard to decipher the proportions in the pictures here.
It looks more related to Kia Carens than any Hyundai product in this form!!

Finally someone who doesn't like it either. I think the car looks weird and unbalanced. The rear looks overly extended taking deep inspiration from the Kardashians!

Making an edgy design is one thing but knowing where to stop is the key to a beautiful design. Just like the i20, this one too is a no go for me purely on the basis of how horrible it looks.

re: 2023 Hyundai Verna launched at 10.9 lakhs!

Hi Folks!

A silly question please! Do we know if the Verna that we'll be looking at in India will be the same as the one in the US market? My impression is that the Verna/Elantra that's sold in the west is a premium sedan at a pretty decent price (Hyundai doesn't sell too well in US/CA) with a quite loaded feature set.

One of the variants also had a wet 8 clutch DSG! I have belief that the build/overall quality there is also quite good/as good as a Toyota.

Curious to understand what is the current scenario in India like with Hyundai!

Cheers!

The Verna is sold as accent overseas. Elantra slots in the D segment against the Octavia

Smallest Hyundai sedan currently selling in the USA is Elantra. I do not remember seeing Verna/Accent in the USA (May be old Accent (gen1) sold in India was sold there as well, but not sure).
