The only complaint that I've with this car is the 3rd person seating in the rear seat is not comfortable. I would not be surprised if the middle person seating strangles me after sitting there for an hour or so !!

On the other side, I like the engine bahaviour; it is super silent at idle and gives out a muted grunt with raced beyond the 4000 rpm !! Tried some moderate steep turns at 100kmph, did not feel any oversteer or understeer at that speed.

I perfer my Palio's suspension over Verna's at higher speeds, with Palio I don't watch out for any potholes or uneven roads. However Palio's suspension is noisy. Verna's suspension works best at lower speeds since it is soft and absorbs the jerks silently.

Congratulations !

Can you please elaborate on the locking system? Does this has driver controlled locking mechanism or passengers can also lock their individual door?

Have you driven uphill anywhere ? Want to know whether its a one off case of bad driving or a general issue !
Hyundais, from my driving experience pay dividends if you are smooth with them. Fast, smooth curves are where you would take them. Real twisties and their handling deficiencies crop up. Not really my choice for aggressive on the limit driving. On uneven B roads the Hyundai i20 is a real comfort compared to my Swift which start bouncing all over the tarmac!!

Being the lightest car in it's class, this is not surprising. But then the mileage gains you get pay off.

Drive on,
Shibu

Hey JK,

Have you taken the car out on the highways yet? Any thoughts about upgrading the tyres or the headlights? I'll be putting a lot of kms on my Verna on the Chennai - Bangalore highway and wanted to know your opinion. Thanks.

Driver can lock/unlock and control power windows of all the doors while individuals can lock/unlock and control power window of their door only...

Congratulations on your buy. The perfect color for the perfect city car.
I bet you are enjoying every minute on the road inside the city.
The steering is super soft built for traffic busting.

Hows the driving comfort? are you strained not able to see the corners of the car in bumper to bumper traffic?

What was the final amount you paid for the car? Got any accessories?
Did you exchange your accent for it?
Any idea whether they have exchange offers on Hyundai cars?

Enjoy your miles.

- 6.2' LCD, 800x480 HD display
- iPod & MP3 compatibility
- Bluetooth hands-free with A2DP
- Support for steering wheel control
- HD navigation
- Intelligent GUI
- USB port dual zone, screen saver, SD port
- TPMS, rear camera, parking sensor
- handbrake control (optional)

The contact details for Kerala is listed as "Media Team Solutions India" - 9447053329, 0484-6458683

Congratulations. Keep us posted on your drives. Is there an intila lag. I found out that it is pretty quite from outside too(Diesel 1.6). The car looks cool from utside. It is much better to look form the back that new fiesta. The high boot helps the look. Is there any other option than caska which provides a good sat nav too.

The rear seats were occupied by 2 friends for over 4 hours without any complaints. If you need to seat 3 people comfortably, IMHO, Manza is the best.

Im due to finish the run-in this week, I have not tried revving 4000 rpm. Its a breeze to drive at 90-100 in the 6th cog. Absolutely smooth.

Im planning to follow @GTO's modification similar to the Civic's rear suspension. Hope that does the trick.

Would not recommend a sub for CASKA. Not much difference.

Have you got the fluidic yet? Also, please insist on a zero depreciation policy.

Headlight upgrade a must these days. If you wish do change the alloys and/or tires do so as soon as you get the car.

Thank you! Yes I am.

Driving in the city is a breeze. This car is meant for the City.

What was the final amount you paid for the car? Got any accessories?
OTR 10.8 Lakhs including a zero depreciation insurance policy. Got a set of 3d Kagu Mats. Need to upgrade lights, ICE (esp HU)
Did you exchange your accent for it?
Had sold it myself. Fetched a handsome price.
Any idea whether they have exchange offers on Hyundai cars?
They do exchange any car.
Enjoy your miles.
Will do mate!

Not yet, they promised me the car by the first week of September during booking. I called the sales agent a couple of weeks ago and he said that the allotments will happen on 10/8 and he'll have a clearer picture then.

While booking my car I insisted that I wished to do the insurance outside as they were quoting almost 10K more than the quote I got outside. They initially refused but after I spoke to the manager he agreed to let me do it outside. Thanks for the tip, I'll go for the zero depreciation policy.

I plan to upgrade tires to Michellin 205 while retaining the OEM alloys. Have you changed your tires or headlights?

I also plan to upgrade the speakers and amps. How do you like the sound system in the car?
