Hyundai seems to have mastered the winning formula with its Fluidic design since the current-generation Sonata was launched. The other thing that the Korean car maker has also mastered is keeping its model line up-to-date, with small but important features being added every couple of years.

This brings us to the Verna, Hyundai’s mid-size sedan that has been around for three years and now gets a few design tweaks. Externally, the Verna gets projector headlights and integrated day-time running LED lights (DRLs), which in India will be reserved for the top-end variant, or be offered as optional equipment. Looking at our fondness for DRLs, we are pretty sure the LED-studded variant will be the one most customers go for. Apart from this, the rest of the car looks pretty much the same.

On the inside, the steering-mounted controls have been reworked for better ergonomics. The infotainment system, along with the audio has been updated as well. The overall layout largely remains the same, and to be rational, there was nothing wrong with it in the first place.

Hyundai is showing the updated Verna at the LA Motor Show next week. Its India launch will coincide with the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo.
