Hyundai, the second largest carmaker in India and also the biggest exporter of four-wheelers is all set to launch the 2023 Hyundai Verna in India today, on March 21, 2023. The fourth-generation sedan will replace the current model and promises a lot of new elements, including the radical new design, which makes it the sharpest and sportiest sedan in the Indian market, based on the spy shots. The much-awaited sedan will continue to compete in the C-segment sedan market with cars like the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Volkswagen Virtus, and Skoda Slavia.

The 2023 Hyundai Verna gets a new design language, taking inspiration from the premium sedan Elantra, which gets segment best design. The same will be carried in the new Verna as it gets full LED light bar on the nose, and a connected tail lamp unit, a new for sedans in India. Around the sides, the silhouette of the new-gen Verna looks appealing in the design sketches and gets larger dual-tone alloy wheels.

The former develops 115 PS and 140 Nm, and it is available with either a 6-speed MT or a CVT. The new turbo-petrol unit will push out 160 PS and 253 Nm, and it will be offered with either a 6-speed MT or a 7-speed DCT.
