Hyundai Verna: the all rounder of the segment.
Buying a car in the C-Segment is quite a difficult task in India today. The cars in this segment has a lot to offer to its owner. But one has to compromise with one or the other factor while choosing the car from the list. The feature that one car in this segment has might not be found in any other cars of the segment. To overcome this limitation in the segment, Hyundai launched the new Verna Fluidic with all the bells and whistles that a car can generally provide in this segment. Neither the car lags in the list of its features nor in the power. The car has maximum features to offer in this segment be it in terms of electrical equipment like key-less entry or automatic climate control or Touch Screen AVN and in terms of safety equipment like ABS and Driver and Front passenger Airbag as standard across all its variants and the top of the line SX(O) gets 6 airbags in total. Looks are a subjective matter of choice from person to person, so I wont be making any comments on the looks of the car. Apart from this, the driving dynamics of the car are quite good as the car remains quite stable while taking sharp turns at higher speeds as there is very minimal body roll since the suspensions of the car are tuned to the softer side for a comfortable ride.The tuning of the suspensions is done in such a manner that it absorbs all the pots and bumps in the city very easily making a comfortable and pleasant ride for the driver and passengers in the car. Also the car has got soft quite clutch which makes driving ease in the city condition in bumper to bumper traffic with reduced stress on the driver's foot. Hyundai has also provided various comfort features such as automatic climatic control, front and rear armrest, cooled glove box and ample of legroom to keep your long journeys comfortable so that when you get out of your car after completing the long highway trip, you look as fresh as you were at the time of starting the trip. Being a powerful motor present under the hood, the car loves to get revved hard and even if you are revving your car hard, the cabin remains quite silent. On highways, when doing the triple digit speeds, the cabin remains silent enough that it would get difficult for the passengers to tell whether the job is being done by the petrol motor or the diesel motor. Hats off to Hyundai for such refinement levels of their engines. Apart from this the car gets the maximum power in the segment with about 126 bhp and 260 nm of torque which are the highest figures in this segment. Now comes the question of the mileage of the car that what are the figures that car manages to return per litre with such power levels. On my daily basis commute from Faridabad to Delhi, my car manages to return me about 18 kilometre to a Litre (Diesel). Apart from this, I do take my car for highway trips with total of 4 passengers on board and the boot full of luggage and the car manages to return around 24 kmpl and these are quite good figures for the car of this segment considering the power and torque figures of the car being much higher than its competitors in this segment. Considering the segment in which this car lies, the another question which comes in a person's mind is that the basic service of the car would also be quite expensive which generally includes replacement of engine oil, oil filter, air filter and cabin pollen filter and some labour charges. My car just touched the 10000 kms mark and i got my car serviced from Hyundai's authorised service station and also i had a free service coupon as well which waived off the labour charges from the bill. The total bill i got for the job done on my car was about Rs. 2600 which included the engine oil and multiple filter's cost that were replaced. since it was a free service so there was no labour charges. and considering the service charges with the labour cost, it's gonna cost around Rs. 4000. Buying a car creates a whole lot of confusion. and the solution to this confusion for me was the Hyundai Verna. Since it has quite attractive looks which grabbed my attention, best in class power, best in class features and comfort. In this segment, the hyundai verna had the maximum to offer me up to my satisfaction level at this point of price be it in power, comfort or features, hence i opted for verna and now i am quite happy from my car and enjoying my drive.
