re: 2023 Hyundai Verna launched at 10.9 lakhs!

I don't see anyone talking about the start/stop button yet.
I feel it's the most convenient placement that i have seen in any car - right behind the steering wheel and upward facing, farthest from the reach of children.

It should be even easy to find/feel this button with eyes closed.

Agree. Love the placement of the button.

Agree. The main factor that stopped me from buying the Slavia was the interiors just didnt feel like a car you have plonked 20+ Lakhs on. Esp after they changed the infotainment display and removed the sub-woofer. And having a physical brake even in the top end 1.5 was a disappointment. And the Virtus interior was similar but slight worse in my perspective due to the way the infotainment system was embedded along with all that piano black panels.

Having said that, while the Verna interior is comparatively a step up in many aspects, I do think the infotainment screen looks more plasticky and has too wide bezels which they should have avoided.

The interiors donít look too bad (actually pretty nice and way better than VW/äkoda recent 2.0 offerings) - barring that ugly two-spoke steering wheel!! Definitely reminds you of those ancient Marutis and itís certainly taking away some feel good factor from it.

You have censured the interiors of most mid segment sedans. What exactly is your idea of a good interior?

I have an absolutely different opinion. Simply love the way Virtus interior looks as compared to this except the ambient lighting. The ambient lighting on this seems to be segments above! But nothing apart from that makes this better. The infotainment integrated in dash looks much better and cleaner I think. It hides any bezels, does not interfere with your view. I hate the screens that just stick out. Although this Verna one is not as bad as the Seltos or Grand Vitara types that just stick out of the dash completely.

Don't even want to mention the instrument cluster again. Totally a deal breaker! Current i20 and previous Verna got much much better one.

The continuity of the Virtus interiors like current gens Audi are beautiful looking in my opinion. (Ofcourse we would've liked it to be of better quality and slightly better looking AC vents - those are just too plain but over all - Classy!)

Not at all it doesn't! Apart from the ambient lighting, there is nothing extraordinary in the interiors to declare it better than the VAG twins in terms of looks. In addition, the 2 huge screens plonked on top of the dashboard will be a huge distraction, and those thick plastic bezels around the touchscreen make it look really cheap.
But yes, the extra soft touch materials in the Verna does uplift it's otherwise overdone interiors.

re: 2023 Hyundai Verna launched at 10.9 lakhs!

Hello, being a sedan guy, I am delighted that auto makers are concentrating on sedan.

Verna's look may not be of everyone's liking, but it is good that they are brining new Verna with all the bells & whistles and cherry on the cake is slightly more legroom for the rear passengers (my guess from the pics). I think it will be very similar to Slavia or Virtus. I am not very sure how low rear seats will be as previous Verna's rear seats were very low to sit.

I think sedan offer better value than CSUVs under 20 lacs. I will be happy to see currently offered sedan bring back those old months when most of them sell nearly 3k to 5k a month.

All the best to Verna for the launch, hope Hyundai price is competitive and bring smile to sedan lovers.

Not really a fan of the design.

The steering looks chunky and weird.
That infotainment screen has huge bezels. Screen estate wastage.
That HUD has been borrowed from the other cars in the Hyundai lineup and hence makes the car lack exclusivity.
Those aircon vent levers look needlessly chunky again.

Very meh!

re: 2023 Hyundai Verna launched at 10.9 lakhs!

Looking at the latest pictures, I am extremely happy with myself for buying the last of the previous generation Verna 7 months back. I had big hopes when I saw the renders, only now realised they consciously masked the bad bits.

The two spoke steering looks so bad, first Skoda and now Hyundai.

Let the car come out and we see a proper pic before passing on. XUV 7OO spy pics gave a very bad impression of its design, which proved wrong after we all saw the car in real.

Personally, I am glad that India's 2nd largest automaker is channeling its efforts into a sedan. The design is pretty polarising and will take some time for owners to get used to, but the powertrain and features just might be able to reinvigorate the sedan segment.

I just hope that this propels Maruti to start working on the 2nd gen Ciaz, which has been long overdue.

I guess interiors are also subjective, just like exteriors. IMO the verna interior looks far more better than the VW twins. Again, I feel the Virtus interior looks way better than Slavia, same with Taigun and Kushaq.

Hope this new-gen Verna pulls people back from the CSUV segment. The black interiors look lovely! I just wish those red lines on the dashboard were LEDs
