Quick stupid question, i guess mayb answered before.
why all test cars are dressed in black and not in maybe a color like yellow. doesnt black clothing make them risky at night?

Rear Disc brakes! That would be a first in India if offered. I hope Hyundai does a hot hatch of this with the VGT from the Verna.

If it was LHD means it's going to be a while before it's launched here.

You are trying to say that all black colour cars are risky. I dont see any connection how black clothing can make a car risky

NO i dint mean black cars are risky. i meant a car covered with black cloth covering on it will be less reflective and hence less visible at night in comparison to a black metal surface. i hope that clears my question

That's a good catch Aditya. From back, looks more of Getz to me. If launched in India, hope they will keep the pricing right unlike Getz CRDI.
