One probable reason could be the low ground clearance of the new verna. I’ve test driven all three cars(virtus, city and verna) and own the Virtus GT. Planning to buy verna turbo mt as a second family car. So my words are from a neutral standpoint and hands down Virtus is the superior handler. But the new verna is no slouch either, it was able to hold its own when I took it around corners. My daily driver was the 2013 Hyundai i20 which had one of the softest steering’s and suspension setups in the market then. So I’m used to driving with soft setups and all one needs is to get adjusted to extract the maximum from the new verna.

Cheers!

Autocar comparison is out too.
Not much different from other reviews or Team BHP.

Sorry, been away at work so wasnt following the thread much.

I got a the Hyundai insurance for around 72k. It came with everything that other insurance companies offer such as 0 dep, return to invoice, loss of key, etc. I would suggest to get a quote from the insurance biggies outside with all the bells and whistles and then use the same to negotiate. Check with the showroom who they are also tied up with (normally 3 to 4 insurers) and get their quotes too.

The showroom will try their best to match it unless they don't want to. It may be around 5 to 6k more with Hyundai but then I went ahead with them since it was close plus peace of mind. Also look for the option with multiple claims. For eg, Tata aig gives it for really cheap but only 2 claims per year it seems. While I don't see this being an issue, we can never predict

Acko and Digit were much cheaper but I avoided them (my personal opinion) due to a mixed bag of reactions and stories

Also, if you had a previous car and sold within 3 years, you can use the NCB Transfer letter to reduce the amount depending on the NCB.

So, while being quoted 72K plus minus, it finally settled at 68K. Hyundai gave me a choice of Insurers, I chose Future Generali due to their market rep. The 68K includes all the listed stuff for three years, except zero dep which is for one year, so on the next two occasions (years) I would need to pay only for that component.

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

I have just booked the Turbo DCT in Silver. Was wondering if Shield of Trust package is recommended for my model? Are the 3D mats provided by the dealer any good and available in black? Attaching price list for Pune.

I doubt the own insurance is for 3 years for 68k, Third party insurance is usually for three years not comprehensive/zero dep, all the addons that you listed above are part of own insurance, so must be for 1 year at this price point.

They do come in black, but i haven't been able to get my hands on them, waiting for them to be made available otherwise will go with 3rd party. I had seen them at the time of booking a month back, they seemed decent quality.




Quick question to MT owners, how does the hill assist work? I am under the impressions that it should work on slight slopes also, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The car starts rolling backward on upward slopes as soon as i leave the brake and start engaging the gear. Note that all my ADAS features are disabled.

I have not disabled any ADAS features, as I am getting used to them. The one instance where I felt the hill assist work was while entering a hotel with a very gradual slope. The car did not slide back initially for a very brief period, then did so. The user manual says that the sliding back will be held for 2 secs, and not more. i guess that is why it began sliding backwards after a very short stop. The 2 secs is clearly to give the MT users just enough time to quickly move into a forward gear and begin to accelerate on slopes! Frankly, 3 to 5 secs would have been more welcome!

Yet to come across its functioning over small slopes. But I recently ventured on taking the vehicle to Tirupati and to answer your query, it works. It holds the vehicle like how we would hold the handbrake before getting the momentum.

Its been over two weeks since delivery and the ODO now stands at 2500km. The only grouse thing which I found in this almost perfect car is its diesel-like long pedal clutch. I absolutely hate it as this was not expected from a petrol vehicle. Even my buddy's 2018 Verna diesel has short pedal travel to operate. Get the MT variant, only if you have runabouts over expressways/highways. Nevertheless, having a great time with this sweet yet edgy machine.

Parting away with few picturesque from our recent trip:

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

Haven't been able to drive much lately, but planning to take it for a short Pondicherry trip from bangalore this weekend, will get to see how it performs on highways!

Yes, it does sharpen the throttle response which makes the engine eager for quicker acceleration. Its very addictive once you get a hold on it over ghats/ twisties.

BTW, do you own the turbo MT variant? If yes, pls let me know your views on the clutch.

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

Can anyone share some feedback on the mileage from the Turbo owners please? Both MT and DCT.

I'm still on my first tank of fuel since delivery so am unable to ascertain the mileage. I don't normally believe the MID mentioned one as most times it's far from the truth

Looks great. That brown really stands out. Given the rarity of the car, it's still a head turner when I drive around. People think it's a sports car.

This is from a recent drive to Sree Saravana Bhavan in Krishnagiri. Stellar performance on the highway with a mix of 80% eco/comfort and 20% sports to get out of sticky situations

Watch from 1.00 minute

On the face of it, their videos are fun to watch and innovative.

However, they won't be able to simulate exact same driving situation with all the cars. For example, one could induce a slide early on to get into the curve and straighten out, as it seem to have happened for Verna. I am not saying they did it deliberately. All I am saying is that a human won't be able to do replicate exact same behaviour.

Secondly, I'm not sure ESP will induce rear end losing grip to achieve directional correctness. ESP is merely reacting to the wheels behaviour and can't predict how far the rear will slide once the slide begins- that part depends on the road surface and tyre. To me, that comments looks like a random jargon dump. Experts can advice in this regard.
