Hyundai launched the new-gen Verna recently and there have been a couple of accidents of it already highlighting impressive build quality.
The new Hyundai Verna was involved in an accident recently. Verna is a premium mid-size sedan that, in its latest-gen avatar, is the newest entrant into the segment. This space is dominated by the likes of Honda City, VW Virtus, and Skoda Slavia in addition to the last-gen Verna. But the new model has tons of modern elements including bold exterior styling, a bunch of segment-first features and a brand-new powertrain. However, it has not been crash tested yet which is becoming a huge factor for a whole lot of buyers today. But the performances in crashes look promising. Here is one such case.

No one was seriously injured in this crash because all 6 airbags were deployed. That is the reason why everyone escaped unhurt. Also, the front section of the sedan looks damaged including the bumper, bonnet, fender, headlamps, radiator grille, etc. However, the damage was restricted to the fascia alone and the A-pillars were able to sustain the impact without getting adversely affected. This is a testament to the build quality of the sedan since it was able to handle such a high-speed crash rather well.
