Hyundai Verna spied ahead of launch

Hyundai is all set to launch its popular sedan, the Verna on the 22nd of August. Ahead of the launch, dealers have started receiving the vehicles, however with protective sheets to prevent people from seeing what the car actually looks like. A reader Vaibhav sent us these images of an all-new Verna being removed from a truck.

So what do we know about the car?
