At the 2017 Chongqing Motor Show, Beijing, Hyundai unveiled its all-new sedan for the Chinese market named the Hyundai Reina.
The Reina is the updated version of the current-generation Verna (codenamed as RB) which is on sale in India. Hyundai Reina has a wheelbase of 2,570 mm and will slot below the Hyundai Verna. The Hyundai Reina sedan gets new styling based on the Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. Reina has the similar large hexagon grille with larger swept-back headlamps like the others in the Hyundai’s family. New somewhat triangular shaped fog lamps look very well suited to the design language. The side profile of the car is quite similar to that of Verna, that is based on the fluidic sculpture design language. Taking a keen look on the tail-lamps, those look very similar to the tail-lamps of the Hyundai’s Xcent pre-facelift version but with a larger size.
On the powertrain front, it gets a 1.4-litre petrol engine capable of churning out 95 hp of peak power. Transmission options for the sedan include a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 4-speed automatic unit as well. On the inside, the touchscreen on centre console will be supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Though the interiors were not disclosed, Reina is expected to have a similar dashboard like the outgoing Verna with little tweaks and add-on features.
Hyundai plans to launch the all new completely changed and updated i20 hatchback and the all new Hybrid Ioniq for India in future.
