Showing information of Hyundai Verna 1.6 CRDI AT SX Option - Diesel variant

Highlights

 

July 15, 2016: Hyundai introduced the mid-life update of the Verna last year in February and is now dubbed as Verna 4S. The sedan is available in the price band of Rs 7.60 - 13.08 lakh. Like before, it largely competes with the Honda City and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz along with other midsize sedans. The 4S comes with a fresh new face, while the side and the rear profiles were largely unchanged; save for the new graphics for the taillamps and subtle changes to the rear bumper. The facelift has also added new feature including six airbags (re-added). While a few features were added this year as well, for example, the touchscreen infotainment system with rearview camera. Mechanically, the Verna 4S is available with four (two each of petrol and diesel) engine options. On the petrol front, it gets a 1.4-litre which produces 107PS and 135Nm of torque, while the 1.6-litre is good for 123PS and 155Nm of torque. The diesel variants are available with a 1.4-litre CRDi and a 1.6-litre CRDi motor choices. The former produces 90PS  and 220Nm of torque, while the latter musters 128PS and 260Nm of torque. Recently, the production-spec next-generation 2017 Verna has been spied inside-out in China, which is expected to come next year in India.

Hyundai Verna review

Introduction:
 

The  Hyundai Verna was supposed to replace the Hyundai Accent in 2006. However, Hyundai decided to sell both cars side by side and the 1st generation of the Verna was born. In its first avatar, it was a strange looking car that failed to gain traction. A few facelifts later, the Fluidic Verna came into existence. The design was well received, the feature list was large and was priced well. In a time when the segment was ruled by the Honda City, this car shook up the segment to temporarily take the top spot. Honda had a trick up their sleeve and introduced the diesel variant, taking back its crown. Already having tasted blood and in a bid to win back market share, the Hyundai Verna 4S was released. Does it have enough to dethrone the City and retain the top spot one more time? We find out.
 

Pros:

1. One of the best-looking sedan in the segment. The futuristic fluidic design is quite a stunner.

2. Offered with one of the most power diesel engine in the segment. The 1.6 litre diesel offers 126 bhp and 260Nm of torque.

3. Loaded with features: projector headlamps with daytime running lamps, keyless entry etc.

Cons:

1. No AC vents at the rear. Much cheaper Grandi10 gets it!

2. Bouncy suspension. Passengers get thrown about over broken roads.

3. Rear seats lack under-thigh support and rear passenger headroom is abysmal.

Stand Out Features:

1. Ergo Lever. It is one of the best feature on offer and will be loved by chauffeur driven customers.

2. One of the safest cars in the segment. Offered with an option of up to 6 airbags, ABS & ESP.

Background & Evolution:

The Verna tag came into existence when Hyundai wanted to introduce the 3rd generation Accent in India. The 2nd Generation Accent was bringing in the numbers for Hyundai so the 2nd & 3rd generation of the Accent were sold side by side with the 3rd Generation being called the Verna.

The 3rd generation Accent (First Hyundai Verna) saw a very bad market reception with the bland design. Then, Hyundai released a facelift, tagged the Verna Transform. This made the bad design worse and then the 4th generation Accent (Fluidic Verna to us) was introduced. The Verna 4S is the facelifted version of the Fluidic Verna.  

Exterior:

The Hyundai Verna is one of the best-looking cars of it segment. The fluidic design has been toned down from the previous generation which is a welcome change. The new design feels like an adaptation of its bigger brother - the Sonata.

At the front, you  are greeted by a handsome pair of projector headlamps that give it an aggressive look. The fog lamps, although similar to the previous generation, have been reworked and is placed in a different way. Two chrome lines run at the grill completing the look.

Moving to the side, the Verna has two neat lines running its length. The roofline swoops down giving it a coupe like look.  While this does look good, it has greatly compromised on the headroom for the rear passengers.

At the back, the tail lamps, although a conventional unit, have been designed in a way to give it a diffused LED look. Also, at the back are a couple of reflectors and a neat strip of chrome over the number plate area that complete the look.

The Verna’s length is 4375mm which is shorter than all the cars in its segment. Its width stands at 1700mm and the height of 1475mm on the lower end of the competition.

The boot stands at 465 litres which again is the lowest in the segment.

 
We at Cardekho love the new design of the Verna 4S. The fluidic design cues have been toned down from the previous generation and the mature looks are surely a stunner on the road.
 

Interior
 

As you get inside, you are greeted by a dual tone dashboard and the interiors are well put together in terms of fit & finish. It’s great to see Hyundai make a name for themselves in this department, irrespective of the segment that they enter.

Get into the front seats and finding a driving position is easy. The seats are height adjustable and the steering wheel while previously only adjustable for rake is now adjustable for reach as well.

The seats offer decent lower back & under thigh support and are height adjustable.

The steering wheel has a large integration of silver accents and a set of symmetric buttons to control the infotainment system and Bluetooth telephony. The stalk on the left controls the wipers and the automatic rain sensing wipers can be toggled from here. The right stalk controls the indicators, headlights and fog lamps. The auto headlamps toggle is present on the same stalk. On our tests, we found the auto headlamp system lethargic and we expect a more proactive system in a car of this segment.

The  instrument cluster runs a neat dual dial theme with a small display for the Multi-Information Display. It displays everything from the ODO, trip meter and distance to empty along with graduated indicators for fuel level and engine temperature.

The rear view mirror has an auto dimming feature. Integrated into the mirror is the reversing camera display. We love that it’s been placed here which making reversing a breeze, but the guiding lines are fixed and do not change with steering input, something that we feel should have been incorporated.

Moving to the center console, the infotainment system is a dual din and dated unit. We are quite shocked that the Verna is not offered with a touchscreen infotainment system, now a norm in the segment. Even the Elite i20 has a touchscreen unit now! The system allows for inputs from USB, AUX and Bluetooth.

Moving further down are the knobs for the climate control system. The system works really well and is one of the best in the segment. However, likes of the Honda City and the Volkswagen Vento have spoiled the consumers who prefer to sit at the back with a rear-aircon vent. The Verna misses out on rear-ac vents. Something we feel should have been incorporated considering cheaper stable-mates like the Grand i10 and Elite i20 get them!

The doors too get similar leather treatment as the seats and have integrated bottle holders that hold half liter bottles.

Moving to the back, while it is easy to get in, you will be disappointed once you are in place. The rear seats are too low and the swooping roof line has compromised on the headroom. The seats also lack under-thigh support. You, however, do get a center armrest with cup holders. The seats are well contoured which seats 2 comfortably but hinders with the 3rd person comfort.

One of the best features on the back seats is the availability of an ergo lever. This allows you to push the front passenger seat all the way to make more legroom for yourself. You do not get rear AC vents but Hyundai claims that the circulation in the cabin has been optimised in a way that you won't be requiring one. Smart engineering or a cost cutting measure?

On first glance, you may feel that nothing has changed on the interior and that is true to an extent. The changes are very subtle.

Performance:

Diesel 1.6:

The 1.6 diesel engine is one of the best engine on offer with the Verna. The engine has been tuned really well and offers a high level of refinement. The refinement levels are so good that one might be confused if you’re sitting in the petrol or diesel. The clutch too has none of the typical diesel shenanigans and is extremely light to operate.
 

This engine churns out a class-leading 126bhp and 260 Nm of torque. This is highest not only in direct comparison but also gives it the highest power to weight ratio, a figure that really matters. The ARAI figures for mileage stand at 23.9 kmpl. The diesel is on offer with an automatic as well as manual.
 

Maintain the engine above 1800 rpm, the turbo kicks in,  and it will never fail to impress you. It quickly, reaches 3 digit speeds and can easily munch highways for hours at end.

Diesel 1.4

The 1.4 diesel engine, which is also found in the i20 makes 89bhp of power and 220Nm of torque. This is mated to a 6-Speed unit. The engine has good low-end torque making it well suited for snail pace moving city traffic. While it doesn’t instil confidence on the Highways as the 1.6 does, it won’t disappoint either.

As the 1.4 is only on offer for the bottom variant, the option best for the budget conscious buyer. You will miss out on essential equipment as the trim level only provides the bare essentials. The engine is suitable for the city condition and the occasional intercity run.

Petrol 1.6:

The 1.6-liter petrol motor, like its diesel sibling, is again at the top of its class in terms of on paper figures churning out 121.3 bhp power and 155 Nm of torque. However, when compared to the Honda City’s i-VTEC, the Verna’s motor may churn out more on paper, the power to weight ratios of the two are almost identical.
 

The petrol engine is on offer in both a manual as well as an automatic. The automatic with its 4 gears was fine during our city tests but were left wanting the 5th gear when we took the Verna out on the highway.
 

Overall the petrol engine is silent and does the job well. We prefer the manual pairing over the automatic and recommend you go for the automatic only if you will use the car for city use only.
 

In terms of direct comparison, the Honda’s petrol wins the petrol round, hands down as its manual and auto both tick the city and highway boxes. The cherry on the cake is the Honda CVTs fuel efficiency.

Petrol 1.4:

Like the 1.4 diesel, the petrol engine too has been sourced from the older generation i20. This naturally aspirated engine churns out 105.5 bhp and 135.3Nm of torque. It’s been mated to a 5 speed manual.

The engine suffers from a weak low end which means you need to constantly rev the engine to go ahead.Out on the highway, the bigger engines definitely feel more at ease. At higher speeds and revs, the 1.4 does tend to get vocal about its discomfort The clutch on this version is very light and a perfect companion for city use. NVH levels are well controlled, there is very little engine noise filtering into the cabin at idling

Our recommendation is to give this variant a miss as it is underpowered and upgrade to the 1.6 petrol. Although it commands a premium, the additional sticker price is well justified.


Ride & Handling
 

The Verna is the king when it comes to how the car is tuned for city conditions. When we ventured into the unkempt parts of the city with uneven and potholed roads along with the constant onslaught of speed brakes every few meter, the Verna had no problem ironing them out. This in combination with the light steering is one of the best combos we’ve ever had.

It's on the open highways where the Verna disappointed us. The car's steering does not weigh up well and the ride is too soft giving way to body roll around corners. We kept thinking about how the Vento would have performed so much better on the open highways. That said, the car sits comfortably at high speeds and if you can watch your speeds around corners, the Verna will not disappoint.
 

Safety:

The Verna is one of the safest cars on offer. It's loaded with anti-lock brakes and electronic Brake distribution. Also, on offer is a variant with 6 airbags. Two front and four curtain airbags. The Honda City, VW Vento and the Ciaz are offered only with two.
 

This would definitely attract a lot of the safety-conscious buyers.  
 

Variants:
 

The Verna is offered in a total of 4 trims with 4 engine options. The bigger petrol and diesel options are on offer with manual as well as automatic gearboxes while the smaller 1.4s are offered only as manual.
 

The 1.4s are offered only in base trim and get an only bare minimum on board features. The 1.6 manuals are offered in the top three trims. The petrol auto is offered only in the S(O) trim which is one below the top end and the diesel automatic is offered with only the top end SX variant.
 

The base variant gets ABS & EBD as standard along with central locking. Also, on offer on the base trim are turn indicators integrated on the wing mirrors, a manual air conditioning system,  electrically adjustable outside mirrors, ergo lever and a 2 din media system sans the steering mounted controls.
 

Moving to the S variant, you get a driver side airbag, reversing camera with sensors, projector headlamps, fog lamps, auto headlamps & wipers, R15 alloys, faux wood finish on panels, upgraded driver information system, automatic climate control, sunglass holder, height adjustable driver seats, and steering mounted audio controls.

 
Moving to the S(O) variant, you are upgraded to R16 diamond cut alloys and chrome one the door handles. You get 2 airbags on this variant (driver & passenger). The smart keyless entry with push button start makes its way on this trim along with a cooled glove box.
 

The top end SX variant comes with a total of 6 airbags and a leather interior.
 

Verdict:
 

While the new Verna manages to look more mature that before, where it has failed is the equipment levels. At this price point, buyers expect the car to come loaded with tech and Hyundai knows better than that as with this very same car it had dethroned the City for a brief period.

While a new version is speculated to be out in the first half of 2016, we expect higher equipment levels, a better-sorted highway package in terms of ride and handling. This will give make it a fair fight in the segment. As for now, the Honda City continues to be at the top of the segment.

    Hyundai has unveiled the concept of the fifth-generation Verna at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show. Also known as Accent and Solaris in other countries, the Verna is due for a generation change. In India, the Fluidic Verna (now known as the Verna 4S) made its debut in 2011 and it was at the apex before the fourth-generation Honda City came into the picture in 2014. Despite its recent facelift, which added more features to the car, the Verna didn’t really pick up. So, let's figure out what we can expect from the new 2017 Hyundai Verna. Read Full News
