i am damn sure, ppl around would not notice that the car has drum brakes instead of discs and even if they do , i think they will just ignore. After all you are getting is alloys and bling bling. ABS is still considered as not required by general junta. Hyundai will still sell verna with rear drum brakes without any murmur being heard.

fyi, how about Fortuner without disc brakes in the rear? Yes, such a oddly proportioned vehicle, with 3l at its disposal comes with drum in the rear. The foremost reason, I do not want to even consider that vehicle. Just couldnt understand these automobile people, very unpredictable.
I believe, as someone mentioned, I thought only ABS Verna comes with all wheel disc brakes.

Just a thought here. When Hyundai thought differently and offered all disc brakes in Verna no body seemed to have gone ga-ga over it. There was no thread bothering about it nor any appreciation for it. We had taken it for granted? But now that Hyundai wants to do some cost-cutting and joins the herd who offer disk + drum in their ABS models there is some serious bashing. No body would have thought nor would there have been a separate thread if Hyundai had offered Disc+ Drum in their ABS version from Day one.We team-bhpians (including me) have shown the 'aam junta' attitude of only finding faults but no appreciation that it had given that option until now. Atleast, that is how I felt it, until now. ABS on my Verna has saved me quite a few times but I had not given serious thought of the advantage I had over other cars of similar class.
Also, does anybody have any info on how much of an impact does this change have on the stopping distance? Has anybody done a test to check the break. I am sure there might not be much (there would definitely be a difference though) or atleast should be acceptable.

am extremely sorry, that I made a false statement here.. that I have all four disc brakes on my verna sx ABS. Its true that it have drum brakes at the rear. Also I consulted the dealer and they said, there is no such version with 4 disc brakes+ABS, but 4 disc brakes were available on the previous sx version only.
Anyway, if i made a confusion, I'm sorry for that..
In fact I didn't feel any discomfort or skid - tendency when I put sudden brakes at 120-130 kmph on the NH (alleppy to cochin). I got two chances to test my ABS and in both, it worked perfect.. and I'm more in love with my car now
