Bala, request you to take an extensive TD of the Verna SX-D. Do a comparison with the TD of Vento. Whichever car you select finally please let us know your criteria at arriving at your decision.

That's good news Optimist. Have been eagerly waiting for the brochure all day long, Why don't you break the pdf into 2 (one of 3Mb & the other of 2.3 Mb) & upload each in separate posts. If you find it difficult you can pm & send it across to me & I can do the same.

Umm.. the thought of reading through 2 separate files did not go down well. So have a look at the previous post.

For 11.75L OTR Mumbai for SX(0) CRDi, this beast is gonna be too hot to handle. There was nothing good in the 10-13 category (OTR), but now have a car having six airbags, backed by Hyundai service, and featuring goodies that make it truly a good value.

One question, whats' the impact threshold for the side curtains to go off (xx kmph at yy angle)? I mean, its' not uncommon to get brushed by vehicles in Mumbai.

Also, carwale has taken out the Transform series, which means that the transform wouldn't continue a-la Fiesta Classic.

As a package, the new Verna is truly outstanding, round one to Hyundai, lets see whether Ford can land some punches in the right (price) area.

Sure Autoindian - Some initial impressions on checking the display car - petrol SX.

- Well built, nicely appointed interiors. I liked the feel of dash, looks very good. Switchgear and other plastic quality was also pretty good. Didnt like the wood finish console though.
- Instrumention console looks very good with blue backlighting.
- Rear view is pathetic, I thought vento is the worst in this aspect so far, but the new verna betters it! Rear windscreen width is too small and though camera/sensors help in parking, the rear view during driving isnt upto my liking.
- Seat height adjustment is again a joke - Just changes the angle of inclination and nothing else. Just cant understand why this feature wasnt provided even in the top end.
- Overall visibility levels in front and side were pretty good. Front visibility is better than the vento, since seats are placed a little high.
- Rear seat again is not upto my liking, thigh support sorely missing. Good legroom though.
- Front armrest on the door wasnt completely flat, but isnt a dealbreaker either. Adjustable driver armrest doesnt have a long travel range and hence its useless for people who are short in stature - like me.
- Steering feel should be same as i20, i beleive. Everyone knows how i20 is in terms of steering feel and feedback.
- I liked the sporty stance from the front, like the coupe like side profile, cant really make up my mind if i like the rear or not. Looks too bulky to me from some angles.
- Spare was a full size alloy.
- Gear lever for the top end petrol looks downright cheap. It doesnt have the chrome ring/finish that we see in the diesel version.
- Music system is average. Many may want to retain the bluetooth/steering controls and hence put up with the sound quality of the same!

Will update my driving impressions as i get to do a TD in a few days time.

Fantastic Optimist , thanks once again. Good idea to upload it in Google Docs. It was difficult though to read it in Google Docs. I have downloaded the original. Now I can go through it at leisure.

Thanks a lot optimist for sharing the brochure. I think the pricing is quite good if all the feautres given are taken into account. Couple that with Hyundai's A.S.S this product will surely do good numbers. The 10-13 lakh segment was really nothing before this. I think this car will give Vento a tough competition. I hope Hyundai manages to keep the waiting period less and lure some of the Vento buyers. Some people are saying it is over priced. Well they say i20 is also over-priced and it is still doing excellent numbers. So I would not be surprised if Verna surpasses Vento in the coming months.

Agree with you. This rear thing puts me off when it comes to Verna design. Vento is worst?? I liked it a lot though the tail lamp could have been bettered

Rear seats of verna has very poor thigh support..even rear seat center portion has a little bumpy leather packing

On front visibility, for me it looks like both does not offer a great view

Confusion continues

ANyway, this got dropped fom my list with out a TD.
Same here... I am not even interested in checking out the display car.

I didnt expect to get a diesel AT at a low price, but this goes beyond my wildest imagination

All that Hyundai had to do was to offer AT on SX. Hope Vento / Linea gives a diesel AT at a reasonable price, without the non-essential bells and whistles

I do not agree with you, sorry. I honestly feel it is worth its price, esp. considering that the 1.6 CRDi base has the same features of the petrol ANHC, minus the passenger airbag, add rear parktronic, CD player & bluetooth for the same price of ~ 8.9 lakh! And the former has 6 gears & a diesel engine!!!!

BTW guys, I'm damn impressed by the "ANHV" that the only car I'll let my dad buy next will be a 1.6 CRDi :stupid

For those calling the verna overpriced, check out how much the city is priced at and how underequipped the city is. And please compare the ex showroom price, not the on road price. The verna is fantastically and competitively priced. Just what I expected, in the range of 7-11 lakhs ex showroom. And check the features that the SX-O comes with.

Default Re: Hyundai Verna : Test Drive & Review

Sit in the new Verna, look back and imagine parking it without the rear view camera. Guys the rear view camera is not a feature for this car, its a necessity. Have you guys seen the quality of the plastic on the sides i.e. near the doors? I can grab and remove that entire chunk with one hand. I've only sat in the new verna 3 times so far so I dont know if judging it will be correct. But here is the thing every time I sat in the rear it screams out saying get out of here if you are going for a long drive.
