Hyundai is all set to launch its popular mid-size sedan, Verna in the Indian market in its 6th generation and promises to push the boundaries of what to expect even further.
The new upcoming Hyundai Verna could possibly boast an impressive NCAP safety rating on the back of all the engineering work being done on it. Verna has always been a strong competitor in the mid-size sedan segment of the Indian market. Ever since its inception in the Indian market back in 2006, Hyundai has ensured that a new benchmark is created with it in the subsequent iterations in terms of styling, creature comforts and powertrains. While all that is true for this new Verna too, Hyundai has done some work in the build quality department this time around.
