That is true, from all the reports on team bhp, youtube tank to tank tests and even ARAI's data, the turbo petrol when driven sanely is indeed atleast 10% more efficient than the NA one in all conditions, except ofcourse driving them all out.

The primary reasons being the turbo version being based on a newer, more fuel efficient engine family - Kappa as opposed to NA's Gamma engine, although Hyundai has branded all their engines smartstream now, also the turbo benefits from it being a direct injection engine as opposed to MPFI in the NA's version.

(More about the engine's details here - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyun...tstream_engine)

The turbo version is indeed a gem of an engine, a true all rounder.
(Diesels have stopped being in my consideration and this is the next best thing in my books, they were the all rounders in BS4 era but have been hit on one side from regulations of ban in winter months and 10 year rule from one side and BS6 and 6.2 on the other, which have made them a pain for driving shorter routes, requiring frequent attention for clogged filters and running in compromised state for both mileage and power for the time it is clogged and very expensive repair if those systems go wrong when out of warranty, make very little sense to own one today and coming from an outright fan of diesel engines, these are painful words)

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

Couldn’t agree more on the efficiency of DCT.

I don’t drive at high speed but I do race quickly whenever possible to achieve that high speed (80-90 on the normal highways; 110-120 on the expressways; 40-60 in the city)

What I have observed is that with DCT I’m able to quickly achieve my speed and then I let the car coast at that speed with occasional accelerator input to maintain it.
Coasting is the phase where I achieve the max mileage from the car, resulting in a decent overall average.

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

Verna iVT is very efficient for what it is. The 1.5L with iVT can deliver 9 (worst) to 14 (best) kmpl worh AC in city if driven with care. An average of 12 kmpl with AC can be expected from it. However, caning it will drop the efficiency tho. Let the cvt do it's work, cvt are very efficient if driven accordingly. The figures I mentioned is from a family friend who has the same Verna cvt or iVT like Hundai calls them.

I envy you guys.
My IVT has run barely 500 km till now, entirely in the city with bumper to bumper traffic most of the times, thus the 7-7.5 kmpl avg. Perhaps, it will inch higher as the engine opens up and I myself get used to the dynamics of this machine. The first service is also yet to be done.

Speaking of AC, are you guys also facing weaker cooling in the rear compartment? On the driver's seat I'm usually comfortable at 25-25.5C with blower at 2 or 3, but my rear seat companions always complain of low cooling at these settings.

I believe Michelin is not offering 16 inchers in India. At least I was told so. Continental UC 6 or Yoko blu earth are equally very good. I changed to Conti UC 6 and reduction in road noise is pretty noticeable

For PPF in Gurgaon, I would recommend the Detailing Devil Red Carpet studio. A good quality PPF is a very good investment if you're the kind of person who feels the smallest of scratches on your machine is a stab to your heart.

All the best and enjoy the power this turbo machine can offer!!
Yes even I upgraded my tyres from apollo to continental UC6 with profile of 60 there is so much difference in both the tyres like very less road noise grip etc worth upgrade

AC is fantastic, even in 48 degrees peak Delhi weather and black colour car, it cools well, I keep it at 18 degrees.

If Ford EcoSport's AC is 10/10
Chevy Cruze Pre Facelift is 9/10
Creta Gen 1 is 6.5/10
On this scale, Verna is a solid 8/10 in harshest condition cooling.
(Car parked under sun and 48 degrees outside conditions)
Change your settings and no one will complain.

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

Hello, Have any of you experienced a constant rattle over bad roads coming from the rear (rear left!?) of the car? I don’t know if it’s the sun blinds or if it’s coming from the door.

I was extremely pleased with the car having zero squeaks or rattles in 20k kilometres and this just came out of nowhere.

A big Y-E-S. I have raised this couple of times in the past.

Did you do something recently? One of the posts in the past suggested that it might be due to removal of seat covers that might have loosened something behind the seat.

I faced this issue always going on bad patches of road. However, few days ago, I drove over a really bad patch and after that instance I haven't heard that sound.
Negative * Negative = Positive

Just keeping my fingers crossed. Though for past few days I have been driving with ~32 PSI. I'll let you know if the rattling comes back when I fill up the tires to 34-35.

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

I noticed the minor rattle fom day 2 of my ownership as I had the sear covers removed. I had asked the ASC to diagnose this during the 1st service, but ended up doing an express job since I needed to go to the office, hence the rattle remains unresolved. But it's now inconspicuous in the overall driving experience. The sweet turbo whistle is what I watch out for while accelerating .

Speaking of milage.
I think it's a very economical car to drive. I don't exactly baby it on the highways and routinely drive at 117 kmph on the Hyderabad ORR.

117 kmph to avoid that annoying beeping noise and to be a little under the speed limit to avoid a ticket.

Observed mileage over a year tank to tank. I would say the car delivers great results, performance, economy, comfort and thrill. It is a complete package.

Re: 2023 Hyundai Verna Review

Checked with Trident Bengaluru with whom I did test Drive

Wait Period for SX Model is 2-2.5 Months

While SX(O) Model can be taken inside a Month.

I'm not a fan of ADAS, how is the experience with ADAS in Verna. Does it interfere with our driving?

Heard someone mentioning it does break automatically sometimes with ADAS.

But is there a way to Permanently Turn-Off ADAS Features like above in Verna?

That's the only reason why I wanted to not go for SX(O) Variant. Price difference is around 1.5 L

And they are giving 50K Discount and other Exchange Benefits.

Yes, you can turn-off ADAS features.

  • India may not be ready for ADAS yet, but you sure are!
  • While ADAS may feel intrusive at first, it takes just a few days to get a hang of it (talking specifically for Hyundai as I have not experienced ADAS from other manufacturers). Just think of it as any other new technology that takes some time getting used to.
  • Once you adjust your driving style (which is not a drastic change) as per the ADAS, believe me - it only makes you a better driver. Of course, provided you don't turn off the ADAS features, otherwise it's all just a moot point.
