This seems heavily biased towards new Verna. They have given it 9-9.5 almost on all counts.

Blue Hyundai should pay more attention to the spelling on the price list. It says 'Deisel'

This review seems to be biased towards Verna!

here are excerpts

Honda city Interiors " however, rear seats may not be very comfortable with three heavy build adult passengers at rear seat"

SX4 Interiors : "The rear seat comfort and leg room is good at front and rear both"

He shows side profile of all car interiors except Verna! Its proven from most user review here in Team-BHp that City still leads in terms of rear seat comfort.

Can't really talk about this specific review, especially since I haven't experienced the the Verna. My impression of comparisons just after new launches is that they are almost always favoring the new launches and at times it seems fishy.

Such things make TBhp even more valuable because of it's unbiased nature.

Being biased is one thing. I am ready to bet my behind that the fellow who wrote this "comparo" has not even seen the new Verna in the flesh, let alone touch, feel, drive it.



He seems to go purely by whats on paper (peak torque RPM, BHP et all). Somebody with half a mind could put together this trash in a matter of minutes. And to think they actually get paid for it. Darned jokers.

This is the reason why I loved T-BHP in the first place. I doubt if he even knows what he is talking about. His decision is made from the start of the article. 8/10 for city, 8.5/10 for vanto and 9-9.5/10 for verna on all counts. And Verna becomes the best performance oriented car in the end. What a joke!

absolutely right , you are spot on , the city has the best rear legroom in its class closely followed by vento , i checked out the rear seats of the new verna and due to the slopping roofline , the seats have been placed very low to increase headroom , thus they lack under thigh support .

Anyone has a clue about the 1.4 engine for the Verna? I know we are all enthusiasts and love the bigger engine but how does the 1.4 compare to the other ones available in the market? I couldnt find any mention of it anywhere.

Isnt it the exact same one plonked in the i20? IMO getting a test drive for an i20 diesel would be much easier than getting one for the Verna (what with 5000 bookings in 5 days). Would like to be wrong here though.

Yeah, you are right. The specs on both look exactly the same. Considering similar pricing as well, looks like it might pull some customers from i20 considering a bigger car at the same price.

I kinda doubt that mate. Check out the ex showroom Delhi pricing between the two:

Verna 1.4 - 809,000
i20 1.4 era (base) - 579,759

Feature for feature, I guess the above 2 are evenly matched. Another comparo:

i20 Asta - 705,261

Now Asta is loaded to the hilt with safety and convenience features which the Verna 1.4 lacks except for power steering, HVAC, music system and power windows AND the hatch is a little over a lac cheaper.

I for one think that people would give this (1.4 verna) a miss unless they REALLY REALLY need (rather want) that big car image. If I had to decide between the two, the 1.4 Verna would vanish quicker than a steaming hot tandoori chicken left alone with me.

oh yeah, my bad. I saw the Verna pricing in Del and i20 pricing for Bangalore . I guess thats the main reason why no one is even looking at the 1.4 Verna and drooling over the 1.6. Makes so much more sense.

So true. Except for the boot, The Verna 1.4 Diesel does not make a lot of sense. You will end up paying more for lesser features and the same engine.

Yeah. It also says Crdi "1.5" AT. Guess they got confused with the old Verna 1.5

Does anyone here have info on the max speed of 1.6 CRDi, Ground clearance and service interval alongwith standard warranty and extended warranty options. I went to Samara Hyundai at Delhi. Couldnt get any confirmation on the above figures as it was Sunday and they didnt have anyone to answer these queries. The SE though mentioned GC as 165mm but other questions he preferred not to answer.
