Hyundai Verna personal opinion

There used to be a time when Honda city was dominant in the compact sedan segment but after sometime Hyundai also roles out the Verna which came in direct competition with Honda City. The Hyundai Verna got the beans when it received a fluidic generation that many Hyundai fans liked and preferred over Honda City due to being well known as a brand. The car which I am going to talk about is a 1.6 petrol which I recently experienced myself for a short period of time and will conclude my honest impressions about it.

How're the looks from outside??

From the outside, the pre facelift version with 1.6 petrol has much better looks than the current generation Honda City but whenever you will buy a facelift version of the Verna there will be many changes that will make it look more aggressive however the Verna had still caught my eyes from the front.

The facelift Verna was available with a Hexagonal grille on the front and had got chrome surrounds around the foglamps also. Headlights on the front will remind you of the eagle eye that sounds aggressive in the car.

From the side, the Verna sounded very fluidic in terms of design and had even got an option of 17 inches alloy wheels that looked much premium on the car but however, the Hyundai Solaris which is the facelifted Verna in India had more stylish alloys which look better than the pre-facelift model.

Coming to the rear of the car there is an option of LED taillights on the rear which look very much inspired by the wings of a bird and this rear profile was the one that caught my eyes.

How's the cabin from inside??

On the inside, the Verna gets a dual-tone black and beige combination of the interior but in comparison to the facelifted Verna, the infotainment size is a little increased. Automatic climate control is digitalized which is an advantage in this car for accessibility. The feel of the steering is something which I think could have been better but otherwise, it's decent and would offer a perfect grip. Rest the Air conditioning is powerful so during hot summer there would be no such problem of heat however Bluelink is something which the facelift gets as an update now.

The rear seating is not lacking as a decent amount of under-thigh support and legroom at the rear is available for people who are 5 feet and 8 inches tall like me so as a chauffeur-driven car it is an option that can be considered if two people will sit at the back because the armrest is also available at the rear but if you want a perfect 5 seater than I think Honda city will offer that in its executive generation. The car also gets an electric sunroof for an airy feeling.

What's under the hood??

Under the hood, there was a 1.6-litre petrol engine that had been mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission which had felt refined to me, and NVH levels were low. It generates 121 bhp power and 150 nm of torque@3800rpm.

Is it safe??

The Hyundai Verna has the same kind of build quality as the Kia Seltos and the one I talked about here got 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, child safety lock and speed sensing locks so safety is something in this that doesn't require too much worry.
