2017 Hyundai Verna Unveiled but continues with one major flaw according to various media reports stating that it has the same rear bench which is uncomfortable and mounted very low as before
Rear seat of #NextGenVerna not as spacious as rivals. Low seating position, under thigh support & headroom could be better.
