Well an expert proudly praises the safety features in Verna and states that the car ranks one in safety and has highlighted the Keyless start and stop button and reverse/parking assist feature. Verna provides features like its European counterparts and that at a price not exceeding the targeted segment. This Hyundai car is the first in segment to get the start/stop button which works quite well for lazy and absent minded people! For the entertainment freaks you can plug in USB and iPOD to hear your favorite tracks.
Well with that, you can’t change tracks with controls buttons on Steering but had the music been played on the CD then even that is possible. And you can also switch on your phone’s Bluetooth and receive/attend calls by just pressing buttons on Steering. Safety has been kept as a priority in the car giving a feel of a fortress you. 6 airbags, 2 in front and rest 4 running along the side body of the car provides overall protection. For hassle-free parking the car is equipped with rear parking sensors and rear view mirror having camera picturing the behind scene. The promotion of the car during the ICC world cup in 2011 gave the car immense popularity, Hyundai being the official partner of the world cup. With the ‘Fluidic Sculpture’, Verna is a whole new car and not just a face-lift. The car is more spacious with longer wheelbase and increased length and width. The petrol version range starts from Rs.6.99 lacs and diesel version starts from Rs. 8.09 lacs. The car is available in 8 trims and 6 colors. Well after the editorial test drive review the experts have prepared a list of pros and cons, first the pros: stylish design, endless features list, huge variant in engines to suit everyone’s tastes, automatic with diesel engine and suitable pricing. Now its turn for the cons: rear seats lack thigh support, looks smaller than peers and less spacious also. After comparing the car with Nissan Sunny here’s what the automobile experts have to say, while Sunny is newbie in the midsize sedan segment in India, Verna is well established and has seen upgrades over the last few yrs. Sunny has large impressive headlights, muscular chrome grill and perfect paint to make it noticeable on road, Verna has sharp headlamps, fog lamps and flowing body with well proportionate from front to rear and fairly good painted body. Well Hyundai Verna get 8/10 overall including design, looks, engine performance parameters whereas Nissan Sunny gets 7.5/10, still close. Both the cars have keyless entry option with steering mounted control functionality. Sunny has beige color upholstery and dashboard and Verna has dual color interiors. But with better mileage figures Verna definitely takes the lead and leaves Sunny behind.
