Hyundai perfectly launched a blend of attractive design, carefully crafted interior and the smooth running diesel engine with Verna, which proves out to be an exceptional. This new model of Hyundai was long awaited and precisely turned out to be one of the best Hyundais in a long, long time. Not only this, people drove this new model are already convinced of the fact that Hyundai finally has a product that can put up a good fight to the Honda City and Volkswagen Vento.
