Well too much love for Verna CRDI, what do u guys think about the Petrol Xi version.
As my usage is only about 30 KM's per day, i dont think a Diesel car is necessary.
Petrol Verna owners or anyone who has had a TD, please post your views.

i think the xi version has about the same features as the diesel. but if you want a fast car with better performance and fe then get the diesel.

Thanks Akshay, i would go for the Diesel any day, but many of them have adviced me not to, as my Travel is only about 30 to 40 Km's a day and if i travel out of country, the vehicle will not be used. Which , by what ppl say is not good for a diesel engine.
Help Please

Well, in case of Verna! The Diesel shouldn't be dumped just because of that 30kms per day reason.
The car packs in a lot of power and torque in it. The Verna diesel experience is something worth going for.
But other than the engine, the car is just a normal Hyundai.

Having ridden in it, was quite impressed with the go, smoothness and decent interiors. Sam seems to be in love with it, although a bird sprayed the insides with coke, the day before

I have now completed 925 Kms in the Verna. Still Hugely impressed.

I've noticed one thing, the rear right door, needs a little extra push to be closed. I will have to correct it at the first service.
The car is smooth and clean, however the sound insulation on the inside is not perfect.
The Ride is good and the engine, amazingly responsive. Have found the perfect tyre pressure for my Yoko 185/65/14 - 29 lbs/ sq inch. More later.

2 things make me unhappy. The cream/beige coloured interiors get dirty quickly, especially at the bottom on the door thingies. Needs to be cleaned often. The carpet is beige too, as opposed to the grey I am used to and this too, shows spots easily.
I have not put any seat covers, but from the looks of it, I will have to soon. No not because of the bird dropping coke lol, but the seat material, is well very light in colour and catches spots/dirt easily.

Cream/Biege interiors go well with dark exterior colors but not so well with a color like White, its best if you go for a dark seat covers which will not only look good but also protect from getting spoiled easily

I saw a white verna with very dark tan leather seats, man did it look hot !!!

Beige is not an interior colour suitable for our environment - its meant for a/c + squeaky clean floor to a/c + squeaky clean car sort of environments. The sooner people realize it, the better it is for them.

Get black leather and grey carpets. ASAP.

The dash is half grey and half beige. Black leather seats wont match the dash, which I cannot change. I quite like the idea of dark tan leather.

However, grey carpet??? Where can I get a carpet that is cut to size for the car? And won't it be expensive?
