Pros : Excellent look

Cons : Driver/passenger comfort and convenience ignored

Look and Style ... Excellent Comfort Driver comfort .... Just poor Other Passenger ........ Just so so,  as the seats height is low I really felt sitting low keeping my legs up Pickup No comments on this issue, presently! Mileage Quoted figures by Hyundai is really impressive... Need to be checked later! Best Features Great exterior look! Needs to improve Driver seat hight adjustment, other Seats hight and overall vehicle height Overall Experience Hi, I checked new VERNA FLUIDIC. No doubt it appears to be stylish and has good mileage tags. But I understood from the test, it is like a rose with thorns(some important drawbacks). 1. Seat height adjustment not possible. Unfortunately it was given for a tilted height adjustment, which is no use. In fact it is a big mistake. 2. Even average height people will have to compromise while driving as the top will be almost touching your head. 3. Arm rest no way useful to the driver, as it is not properly positioned or designed. 4. Even the back seats are not so much comfortable, as the height of the seats are not sufficient, and I really felt as if I am sitting low, keeping my legs up! 5. As the driver seat height can not be properly positioned, you can not even see the front bouynet, 100% you have more chances to have accidents. 6. Coming to the car insurance, while you are buying, you have to pay almost above Rs. 37000 for SX; which I felt Hyundai is exploiting its customers by showing a rose with thorns. Same valued new cars are almost registered for insurance amount less than Rs.20000, from car makers like TATA/FIAT, as they have brought down insurance amount almost by half of what we have to pay by tieing up with the insurance companies and they are not trying to make any profits from the insurance money that you are paying by bringing down their insurance premiums. To tackle this problem, any verna or Hyndai car product buyer better get their car insurance done from any outside agent, and you will be certainly benefited as you will be getting more than 50% discount on insurance premium compared to the Hyundai company dealers. However, these Hyundai dealers will threaten you saying that you will not be getting any cashless facility in case of any mishappen. But you donot have to get worry as they try to fool you for making more profits.

    Pradeep |20 May,2011 02:04:24 PM

    Just wait for New Ford Fiesta, i would definitely be at a lower price than new verna and with much better drive and handling

    C.VIJAYAKUMAR |20 May,2011 04:29:59 PM

    Thank you pradeep..

    the new ford fiesta has very poor legroom at the rear. if you are looking for a spacious car then the fiesta is not for you. the fiesta is primarily a drivers car and not a car to be driven in.its got its own pros and cons. i suggest you visit Team bhp website and search for new ford fiesta.

  • NAGABHASKAR G |20 May,2011 11:09:57 PM

    I too suggest the same to Mr. Vijayakumar! Just wait and watch for new Fiesta.

    balu |06 Aug,2011 09:48:00 AM

    go for fludic

    harsha |08 Aug,2011 07:13:16 PM

    hi Balu, How is fluidic verna diesel sx? Have you test driven it? Kindly give your feedback. Thanks in advance

    balu |09 Aug,2011 10:09:24 AM

    hi i have already book the car & just waiting. the car is super. but waiting period is too high if you r planing to buy now, no doubt the car is excellent.

    harsha |09 Aug,2011 12:01:23 PM

    thank you for your feedback and immediate reply:-) I want to clarify one thing, that is the behaviour of the car at high speed, it is said that at high speeds the car is bouncy and provides a unsettled ride! Is it true? Kindly give your feedback on that! Other than that i liked all the features, looks, engine performance of the fluidic verna. Its really awesome.

    balu |09 Aug,2011 01:32:09 PM

    i have reached till 120 in the test drive car i dint feel anything. in my old verna crdi 2009 model i have reached 190 i dint feel anything. i hope their is no such issue. the suspension is smooth compared to old verna what i had, also the noise inside the cabin is very less.

    harsha |09 Aug,2011 03:28:09 PM

    thank you very much once again for your valuable feedback.. :-) I'm sure that this new verna will corner new fiesta and vento.

  • sathish |08 Aug,2011 05:25:17 PM

    hi friends,i finish test drive with all new ford fiesta ,fluidic and also honda city,i confused with this three sedans please help me to buy a new car in this segment.

  • harsha |08 Aug,2011 07:06:15 PM

    which is the best diesel sedan among the three ford fiesta(style)-10.83L Hyundai verna fluidic(SX)-10.94Lakh Volkswagon vento(highline)-10.7L approx All are on-road prices. Prices are not a concern among these three variants,as they differ a little by 10K-20k. So without considering the prices between these three sedans for the specified variants, suggest a better sedan. Thanks in advance.

    dear seat adjustment option is their in other than base models ur major problem looks to b height than go for 1.6 vtvt i agree with u rear seats r not worth for three people seating comfortably.

  • C Abraham |17 Jan,2012 10:58:15 AM

    We are looking for a diesel car and are considering Vento/Verna/Rapid. My gut feel is for Vento but after reading the reviews I am confused. Reviews say the mileage for Verna is very low and the back seats are very low and uncomfortable. Please comment.
