South Korean auto major Hyundai is readying a number of new range additions for 2015 and Verna facelift is one amongst them.

It was just a few days ago that Hyundai confirmed that the new facelift avatar of its popular Verna is set for a February launch in India. And now ahead of its launch, a facelift version has been spied undergoing tests in India, without a hint of camouflage.

Caught on camera by PowerDrift, the new Verna facelift looks chic with its updated front and rear profiles. In the front, the test mule is seen wearing a sporty bumper with new headlamps and LED daytime running lamps. Elsewhere, the new Verna seems to be rolling out new alloy wheels with redesigned rear end, updated bumper and integrated reflectors.

The interior of the new Verna facelift will remain more or less the same as the current version of Verna and is likely to include a new touchscreen-based infotainment system. Beneath the skin, Verna facelift is likely to include the same 1.4-litre diesel and petrol engines and 1.6-litre diesel and petrol engines, with a five-speed manual gearbox for petrol and a six-speed manual for diesel. There will most likely be a six-speed automatic gearbox as well.

When launched, Verna facelift will rival Honda City, VW Vento, and Maruti Ciaz in India and is expected to get a price tag in the range of ₹7.30 lakh to ₹11.50 lakh.

In another development, Hyundai's upcoming ix25 was also caught on camera recently. Expected to reach Indian shores by October-November 2015, Hyundai ix25 compact SUV is likely to include 1.6 litre petrol and diesel units under the hood.
