Hyundai could be planning to launch the new Verna in the international market followed by its debut in India. While the sedan segment around the world including India has been showing a downtrend, the Volkswagen Group’s Skoda Slavia and VW Virtus have given the segment a new life. The new boost in the segment could mean that it is likely to attract folks back into purchasing sedans. If the trend shift takes place Hyundai would be ready with the new Verna which competes in the premium mid-size segment.
