This happened to me a year ago in my Vento Tdi. I had forgotten to refuel on time and are based reached down to 20 km. I filled the tank till auto cut off and it held 47 litres. Fuel gauge indicator refused to budge. I checked again the next morning and it had slowly crept up to about half tank. It took a whole day again for it to show a full tank of diesel. This happens if the fuel is too low and the float in the tank gets struck at some place .

I went to a Hyundai dealer next day turned out to be a loose fuse.

If the diesel manual is 9.32, how fast is the petrol then?
Fantastic numbers, considering that its a diesel.

Simple fix for such an issue. Though is it normal for fuses to become loose like this. Or was someone careless with those earlier.
I would had the same guess as sunsetorange. Stuck floater seemed like a probable cause.

Just wanted some feedback on the Hankook Kinergy tyres from the existing Verna owners.

How has the performance been so far on the following parameters:
- Tread Wear
- Punctures
- Ride Quality
- Handling

Has anybody felt the need to upgrade to better tyres?

Changed mine to Michelin primacy 3st 205 55 16 the very first day from bridgestone . The ride has become less noisy and ultra smooth.

We bought a Hyundai Verna 1.6 SX(O) AT Petrol in January end. Currently the ODO reads 7302KM. Here are some things that I have noticed in the last 4 months. I have attached a few photos of some parts and components which I couldn't find anywhere online.
The Good Things :-
- The engine is very smooth
- The 6-speed torque converter shifts silently and smoothly
- Ventilated Seats are a boon in India's summers
- The car looks awesome especially in Black
- NVH
- Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto

The Bad Things :-
- The plastic quality isn't so good compared to our 16 year old Palio. In
some places the plastic is peeling
- The black plastic trim outside the car has already turned white (still black
on our Palio)
- Headlights are weak compared to the City. reason being halogen projectors
If Maruti can give HID/LED projectors on the Baleno and Ignis why can't
Hyundai.
- Rain sensing wipers and auto folding mirrors are solely missed (this is such
a basic feature present in the cheaper i20)
- The AT doesn't respond well to a heavy right foot.
- Fuel economy is not great 10-13kpl till now
- Some places in the car look unfinished
- I wish the headlight had blacked out elements like the US Accent
- the power window switches and mirror controls are not illuminated
- Sunvisors are made of hard plastic should have been cushioned and
wrapped in leather.
- The cabin lamp in the rear is placed too forward.
- The middle rear seat is the most uncomfortable seat I have ever sat in
- Paint quality isn't great the orange peel effect is too noticeable and there are little white spots in many places.
The clear coat has come off the front bumper

A look at the ventilated seat modules under the driver's seat (sorry for the poor image quality) :-

When the sunroof is open or in the tilt position and the car is switched off the warning is displayed in the instrument cluster :-

The Sunvisors made of hard plastic :-

A look at the LED strip inside the tail lamp, only the outermost led lights up :-

The plastic peeling issue :-

Only the drivers power window switch is illuminated, no illumination on the other doors either :-

The underside of the boot, looks like they forgot to finish it doesn't even get a proper coat of paint and the mechanism to open the boot is exposed :-

The plastics already turning white :-

Issues till now :-
Fuel gauge behaved erratically and DTE was completely wrong. Turned out
to be a loose fuse

Although I have nitpicked a lot I still love this car to bits
The part no. for the ventilated seat module :-

Default Re: Hyundai Verna : Official Review

Finally got delivery of my Verna yesterday after much drama (that's for another day).


First thing I noticed, Supervision cluster is only available in SX(O) variant, mine is SX. Both Hyundai and the dealer conveniently forgot to mention it anywhere. Not a deal breaker for me, but certainly be helpful to know the default value for those options.


All I could gather till now are, lane change indicator blinks thrice, fuel economy displays in KM/L and temperature unit is in centigrade. Yet to find out the behavior of auto lock and unlock, instant and average fuel economy reset value, follow me home option etc.

Congratulations Petrolhead. Enjoy endless happy miles with your new car. Verna is a good choice. Do post some pics of your ride and do start a ownership thread soon. There is serious dearth of ownership threads of the new Verna. 😊

Thank you very much rajamuneeb. I have the Verna with me for less than 24 hours and just 50 KM till now. An ownership thread is definitely in tow, but after putting up some miles on the odo. Please bear with me till then. I will be clicking some snaps over the weekend for the member' viewing pleasure.

Congratulations to the both of you and wish you miles upon miles on pleasure with your new ride. I really believe that the Verna is almost a complete package for the segment it competes in. The only area where it lags behind the competition is the legroom at the back. But other than that, it's one of the best option for single car families.

I dont know about the SX model but with the supervision cluster all of these are adjustable. In automatic models the auto lock can be set to lock at >15kph or as soon as the lever is moved out of Park. And auto unlock can set to unlock with engine off, shift to P or unlocking as soon as the drivers door is opened. The lane change flash can be set to 3,5 or 7 flashes. Fuel economy unit can be selected between kpl and L/100km. The headlamp delay can be turned on or off. And fuel economy can be auto reset after refuelling (more than 5L) ,on every ignition cycle or OFF.

It is like this in all Hyundai cars only the (O) model gets 6 airbags and supervision cluster

@hiren.mistry, thank you very much for your wishes.

We are not a family of very tall people. I am 5' 7" and my wife is 5' 5". We both can sit one behind other without any issue, in fact I can say space at back is aplenty for us. We made it a point during test drive that we should overload the car to check space (including my parents) and luckily for Verna was adequate.

Yes, options are configurable only in (O) variant. These features have some default values (non-configurable) for other variants, which I am making a list of. I will publish here when ready.
Funny though, Hyundai mentions chrome handle bar etc is only in (O) variant, but forgot to mention supervision cluster is also available only in (O) variant .


On a side note; dealer screwed up my name in booking form. They later corrected it in their database and subsequent documents have my proper name, but Hyundai database is still having my screwed up name. Any suggestions how to fix that.
