The new generation City has grown by a considerable margin. The sedan is now longer and wider than before and is lower too. The wheelbase though remains identical to the older car. While the basic platform of the new City is same as the older car, a lot has been done to it to increase stiffness and strength. As far as the looks are concerned, the new design is still unmistakably a City. Just that the lines are sharper. The headlamps look sleek and come with LED DRLs as well. The prominent use of chrome on the grille also adds to the more imposing character. In profile, the silhouette is rather sleek. The sweeping roof line and the prominent shoulder line add character to the sedan. The rear end too looks good thanks to the sleek design and those LED tail lamps.
The Verna recently got a facelift and as a result gets a sleeker pair of headlights and a large grille. The sharply raked bonnet and the low slung look gel well with the sedan’s character. The profile though remains identical to the older car. At the back, Hyundai has further streamlined the lights and the stout boot makes the Verna look sportier than the City.
A quick dimension check also reveals that the City is larger than the Verna. However both the sedans sport an identical 2,600mm wheelbase.
