Current Verna, Creta are good. But Santro, i10NIOS, xCent, Venue...And now this Verna sample - Oh my eyes!

I'm planning to buy a car in 10-11L range with 95% city use (might never see highways) with about 1000kms a month.
I'm considering Verna SX petrol, ciaz, yaris (discounts are tempting). How is Verna petrol? What's the avg. fuel efficiency that you get and what's the servicing cost?

TIA

Stock Blades are really good. I can't really complain on that. But yes, I am also looking for some options if any.
Thanks for the reply.

Can you let me know the OSRAM HID Model / Spec that you have upgraded to? Also does that fit to the stock more off headlamp plug and play?

Glad to know everyone got out safe.
There is a recall in US and other countries for fire hazard in Hyundai Vehicles but there is no mention of Accent/Verna/Solaris (different brand names of Verna).

Link to news
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-k...-idUSKCN1QH2EB

But that doesn't mean it's not related.

There are no Hyundai Verna 2017, 2018 or 2019 model recalls related to fire, issued by Hyundai or NHTSA.

I am currently facing a peculiar issue with my infotainment system in my new Verna.

Whenever I make a call, while a song is being played, I am not able to hear the song after cutting the call although the song keeps playing. I would have remove and insert the USB again to hear the song.

Is this normal or being faced by anyone else?

Yes. Same issue. Easier work around is to press the mute button and then press it again, no need to remove USB drive. This seems to be a bug.

This is a common problem as far as I know. You don't need to remove and reinsert USB, rather you can mute / unmute (either on the infotainment or through steering control by pressing the volume button down) you will able to hear the song playing again. This issue happens almost 99% of time for me except rarely sometime it works. Not sure though what could be the issue.

I enquired with ASS for any upgrade on the multimedia software version a month back during my 30K service but they told they haven't received any.

I have tried resetting the player, tried different USB device etc but still this happens. So probably we got to live with this issue for now.

I am planning to buy out Bosch Aerotwin / Clear Advantage (24 / 16) wipers on Verna. I could find aerotwin in Boodmo website cost around 1400/- approx

In amazon I could find Bosch Clear Advantage (24 / 16) for 750/-

Has anyone used Aerotwin / Clear Advantage? Any feedback on which one to pick for verna nextgen?

This is shocking. Glad that people could escape from the vehicle.

But what is the follow up? Any updates? Is there any official response from Hyundai?

My Verna SX(O) MT (Petrol) turned one a few weeks back. My daily commute is 15-16kms. Within city limits, in low traffic conditions, I get 13.5-14.5 kmpl & in medium to high traffic it ranges between 10.5-11.5 kmpl. These are figures without AC usage. I don't use the AC much but generally with AC, the FE takes a hit of about 0.5-1 kmpl depending on traffic. These are MID readings & I've found the them to be fairly accurate. Note that I try to drive with a light foot within city limits.

On highways / occasional airport trips the FE ranges between 15-18 kmpl depending on AC usage. Overall, I get an average FE in the range of 12.5-13 kmpl.

In terms of servicing, I've only just had the first major one which was the 10,000 kms / 1 year service. The bill came to Rs. 1402/-. I was very particular with the service advisor to do just the necessary things with absolutely no extras. The servicing was carried out at Lakshmi Hyundai. I've attached a scanned image of the bill for reference.

I'm extremely happy with the purchase & it's been a great first year driving around in the Verna, with absolutely no issues to report. At the time of purchasing the car I felt like it was the best offering in this segment & I don't think much has changed since then. No car is perfect but this ticks most of the right boxes. If you can compromise on the rear seat space, I would totally recommend the Verna. Note that the seats themselves are pretty comfortable, albiet set a bit low; the leg room is just about adequate.

Hey.

Its DHB3 35W and yes i got the frameless wiper blade too, but cant see much difference. The pressure of which it wipes is also not that great (or atleast what I feel).

It costed me 1200 INR and got Bosch Blades. HID Costed 12500 NR.

Thanks for the information. Can we fix it our self DHB3 or did you get it fixed elsewhere? I had a look at the video for Creta where it was said we got to drill a hole on the protection cap of the head light. Is this the same in Verna as well?

Finally, is this the one have bought? Amazon Link

Thanks in advance for the information.

Yes, even in case of Verna you would have to drill a hole in the dust cap. However, most of the reputed HID kits come with rubber grommet that helps in sealing the hole. There are enough videos online which depict this.

Had a weekend trip and the mileage figures throughout the trip were impressive. By end of the trip, total kms driven was 436 kms and diesel consumed was 17.44 lit. Mileage is 25 kmpl. This is 2nd highest for me. Couple of weeks back in another trip I have got 28.15 kmpl (249.7 kms with 8.87 lit of diesel). Pic of the MID half way through the trip.
