Hyundai Verna, outstanding features at reasonable price
I bought Hyundai Verna 1.4 VTVT last year end, depending on its look which I found best in this segment, I feel renowned company like Hyundai can never make a low end vehicle, of course the taste of customer has to be satisfied to it?s fullest, Verna has a very attractive body design with metallic line finishing both the sides, it also has chrome plated grills at the front which makes the front look stunning, black angular head lamps gives the vehicle unique look , the rear bumper is bit large, but the raised rear bonnet makes the vehicle more appealing. The semi-circular roof is designed very cleverly as the person?s height increase he will shift the seat back for leg adjustment at the same time height above head also increase due to semi-circular roof design. Vehicle has sufficient ground clearance and a very nice suspension which never lets the body of car touch the bottom with five people inside. It has very good front bonnet design and the seat height gives a very clear front view. Hyundai Verna base model has dual tone interior which makes the vehicle very attractive from inside, being non fabric makes it to clean and maintain easily, the door pockets and pockets provided at bottom along with gear lever console people can use for milk packets, breads or packet food. It does not come with leather seat cover but little negotiation with dealer one can get it. Four front AC vents are sufficient to cool the vehicle within 3-4 minutes. Dash board display is amazing it makes the person to see all the parameters very easily without any difficulty, gear shifting indicator always guides the driver to run in proper gear for better power as well as better fuel economy. The dash board panel intensity is such that it never put stress on eyes. It automatically adjusts intensity depending on daytime/night. Back seats are although bench seats but too comfortable in sedan class, it has folding arm rest with cup holders one can use to put tea or cold drink. Leg room is also sufficient. Base model does not contain any infotainment system but no need to invest huge to get higher version for just infotainment system, I got 2-Din Sony 6.5 inch touch screen multimedia with Bluetooth fixed at price 15000 Rs only which has the rear camera connectivity, it has audio, video, Aux, USB and FM radio playing facilities, It goes well along with the inbuilt speakers of car which has huge bass boosters provided in the vehicle from the manufacturer itself, so no extra cost is incurred in the installation of new speakers. Performance of vehicle can be rated as very good as I am getting a mileage of 14 kilometre per litre in city as identical to small hatch back cars, whereas my friends having Honda City and Skoda they are getting little less though depending on parameters such as way of driving and road conditions. Gear shifting is very smooth, steering is very stable and can be moved with finger which makes this vehicle comfortable for parking or better cut in crowd. This vehicle looks big but gets handled like small car. I drove my vehicle in highway at speed of 80-100 kmph, it was fully balanced, smooth and got a mileage of 17 plus. For engine performance I would like to say it is good in city with five person inside, no frequent gear change is required vehicle is so smooth one can go up to 30 km/hr in second gear without any hitches. I feel for power there is no limitation, one need to spend more money and fuel if more and more power is required then one should certainly go for much higher end brands like Mercedes, Audi or BMW but at a cost of less than ten lakh Hyundai Verna to me seems the best option. This vehicle has quick response to accelerator paddle. Brakes with ABS and EBD makes the vehicle braking fully balanced when braking at high speed also. It has many safety features like air bags, ABS with EBD, no start of engine if clutch is not pressed, steering locking with wheels straight, all five safety belts, safety belt wearing buzzer, door lock indicator, child lock etc. Finishing protective touches given to the vehicle body is very good, I got Teflon coating on body and antirust coating in bottom by the dealer in the same price. I found few times vehicle rubbed against other vehicle but did not get scratch due to Teflon coating. Hyundai gave offer Rs 50K on vehicle and extra Rs 50K for exchange bonus summing to a total of Rs1 lakh saving for Verna 1.4 VTVT, which I got to purchase my vehicle. If one can get all four power windows, power & adjustable steering, two air bags, brakes with ABS and EBD, manual central lock, micro hybrid antenna, four speakers, 1.4 litre petrol engine in Base model and only extra 25K required for infotainment [double din, gps, rear camera] then to me there seems no reason to buy some other vehicle in this segment.
