Yes, I suppose you are right. Verna Diesel has not increased prices.

But I did hear that Prices in general were going up by 19k on Verna DIesel ( This has nothing to do with Tax ). I also got a call from another dealer who said it was 100% confirmed. Haven't checked since then.

Hi vkochar,

Price hike is only for the petrol version of the Verna not the diesle, just checked it in todays Times of India newspaper.

Regarding the ICE, JVC AX-800 Head Unit with 7 inch motorised touch screen is really good. nice choice.

Regards,
Sajan

Vkochar,

Congrats on your new ride. Since you have mentioned that you are in the leather businees, could you please tell me where in NCR would I get decent leather upholstery for my car, I know about Stanley. is there any good value for money source in NCR where I can go for leather seats, door pads, steering cover and gear knob. it would be gret if you could give the approx price for the same as well.

Congrats on your new ride Vkochar!! Looks awesome except for the steering wheel cover! But since you yourself are in the leather business, you dont need to be told much i guess..

Enjoy your car and do post some updates on the ride quality and suspension once you get some free time!!

Varun,

Wonder how I missed this thread? Congratulations mate. White Rocket is nice - if you need an alternative name, Safed Tashan it should be.

Drive safe and enjoy the beast.

Congratulations! I am a bit late in wishing you I believe. Discussions about alloys, tyres, ICE have already begun.

Enjoy your White Rocket Rocketman.

Ok - My car completed 850 Kms yesterday. I have been unable to drive the car in the city as my Accent is doing the daily duties nowadays. Verna is in the cover most of the time. It's raining like crazy and I hate to see the white beauty getting drenched and soiled in our lovely Agra Mud So I avoid City driving nowadays.

However could not control myself last night and went with the family on a 30km spin around town.

Here are my Observations -

Plus Points of Verna Till Now -

Rear Seats are Awesome and family keeps comparing with the Accent, there is at least a 20 % Improvement in Rear Space over the Accent !!

AC is so effective, its like crazy. What AC is this Hyundai ??? It's Antarctica in this weather. I am not kidding guys !!

Mileage is super - The Fuel Gauge refuses to move. I am getting more than 16 kpl till now with 100 % AC on and mixed driving. This is when the first service is not done. Using Normal Diesel. Swift Diesel - You Hear this ?? Lol

Power is Awesome, Pick up is crazy !!

Steering is very very good and very easy to operate.

Dead Pedal for Clutch helps. All Hyundai's have this.

Brakes are super, without ABS also !! Trust me, I am not joking.

Good GC. Much better than the Fiesta and the Accent. Boot space is very good.

Minus Points of the Verna -

Stock tires are inadequate, need to have 1 upsize to 185 at least. It's not that bad, but fatter rubber will give the car more grip and more confidence to the driver.

Fog Lamps are useless really, Hardly any LIght, Headlights are very good though. Can I change the Foglamps bulbs ?? How much if I want White ones ??

Too cold AC Some might take this as a Minus Point.


I think that's it, too many plusses over minuses. Let me think of more and I will put them here.

Car is about to go for first free service at 1100 - 1200 kms. Will give a detailed review then. Hope this helps.

Hi Vkochar,

I'am also facing the similar problem on my car with the Fog Lights, When i left my car for its 1st free service with Odometer showing 1490, I asked them if they could adjust the fog lights for which the service advisor told me that nothing can be done as its a fixed unit. however, he said he can try to align the reflector but that has not helped at all. I'am also thinking to replace the bulbs with Philips Crystal Vision 55W ones.

Regards,
Sajan.
