Hello allinbalance
It would be very helpful if you could tell me which dealer in bangalore has a caska unit for the fluidic verna. Trident or Advaith? I have booked my car at Trident and contemplating a sound system upgrade. What did this cost you and did you add any amps / replace the stock speakers?
thanks in advance

@cars_crazy Apologies for the late reply as I was travelling. CASKA HU can be installed best with the Trident Hyundai people. They have a amazing guy called Nayaz from CASKA distributor support who does the installation with minimum fuss and 100% professionalism.

Important update: CASKA has upgraded its "D" series HU to "smart" capability - which means that it is now Andriod OS based with tons of more features. S**t, I missed it!!!

So do remember to ask them for the latest smart HU for Verna Fluidic.

@cars_crazy Sorry I missed your second query. The total cost was INR 50K. No replacement of stock speakers required as they have good bass and mid-range. The Hyundai OEM speakers are Blaupunkt - so no need to change them. You might want to add a TurboBass box in the rear - if you really like - but it would be a pity to cut open such a nicely done rear tray.

And 16-17 kmpl in city conditions is quite within expectation if I am not wrong. Remember, driving within 90kmph gives you insane mileage, we cannot really expect the same in speeds above 100 kmph on highways or within city.
Hey swiftnfurious, do you think it is better going for a 1.4 ltr than a 1.6 ltr options for verna?? Though fuel efficient, will the car be able to meet the expections of such a pricy car?

Hi Alli,

I too enquired the same with the sales woman @ Austin (kolkata), but she was unable to tell me which brand the headset belong to and the speaker company. Are yo aware of which brand the music system belongs to?

@delix The OEM speaker set is Blaupunkt (white label). The stock head unit is a JVC white label (info source: the Trident guys at Bangalore). I do know for a fact that the new Fluidic Sonata and CRV have Harman/Kardon white label speakers. It was in a interview with the Hyundai North American CEO in Straits Times a few months ago.

There are auto gurus among the Mods like @GTO and @sid_indica who know far more about OEMs that I can even begin to know - recommend you check with them if you wish to.

Note: For all ICE fans interested in the Fluidic Verna after market ICE systems - do NOT, repeat NOT allow anyone to install any system which needs even one single wire harness modification or cutting. Hyundai is very harsh (particularly for Verna - their crown jewel) about their warranty coverage. I know of one installation in Hoskote which caused complete warranty void on a 5 day old car!

@delix Sorry for cutting into your message to @swiftnfurious!

I had the exact same doubt before I bought mine. Here is my suggestion - it would make sense to - a) buy the 1.6ltr if you do long runs where the additional weight and power gives better driving pleasure; b) stick to 1.4ltr is you are a city commuter only where power does not really count in most Indian cities.

If you have the budget, go for the 1.6L engine itself. It is still fuel efficient like the 1.4L, you got additional power at your disposal too! Am sure you will use the extra power with caution though, it being a softly sprung car! Also 1.4L doesn't come with ABS, does it [It comes with all 4 disc brakes from what I know]? One more bigger reason to buy the 1.6L

For city, I would rather look at the driveability of the versions than the CC metric.

To the Verna owners, am joining the club tomorrow- taking delivery of my Grey Fluidic 1.6 CRDI SX- the question I have is on the ICE.

Is the stock system i.e the HU+Speakers good enough? Now I understand sound quality and preferences are purely personal, but on a very broad level does this set up provide a decent bass+treble output?

Would you recommend a change of the HU or maybe component speakers at the front door, while retaining the OE speakers in the rear door.

Lastly, any suggestions for a decent double din HU - at the lowest price point possible. On a budget you see

Its coming almost one year later but here's my two cents:

I bought my Hyundai Verna in Nov 2012 and have not updated the stock HU or speakers. I feel the quality and loudness of music is good enough. In fact some of my friends were also quite pleased with the audio system and asked me if I had put aftermarket audio setup.

I recently bought a Polo GT TSI and compared to that ANHV is far far better. So unless you are an audiophile or are looking to wake the neighbourhood, stock setup should do just fine.

I have misplaced the iPod connecting cable in my fluidic Verna. Where could I source one or is it available with the dealership??
Ihave done around 16k Kms now bit iv noticed a peculiar grinding noise on moving the car on a slope especially when the clutch is midway off and it comes at a particular angle only and not always and I think from the right front side. Has anyone faced the same??

Having spent a considerable sum in buying the Fluidic, may I enquire the reason for not going for the AT version ?

I just got my Verna it's scheduled service of 20 k Kms. I'd been hearing a peculiar grinding noise on disengaging the clutch on slopes and got that checked as well. Apparently there's some fault with the clutch and it isn't covered under warranty. The SA did not have any opinion on the cost or the reason though. Luckily I do know the owners of the dealership very well which the SA was not aware of. On the boss getting into the picture the update is that there could be an issue with the gearbox too and a mail has been shot off to hyundai to get it all covered under warranty. Let's see how that develops.

Hi Rugrags, was your clutch and gearbox replaced ? How much did the replacement parts cost ?

The entire clutch system was replaced but it was done in warranty so i wasn't charged anything for it. Post that my FE has improved a lot too. From 11-12 in the city to 15-16 in the city.

Yeah I get it but was the parts cost mentioned on your bill or did your SA mention it ? I'm still in a dilemma whether to go in for an extended warranty or not.

What was the reason given for such an early clutch failure ?
