Manoj Yelne's review on Hyundai Verna 1.6 CRDI SX (O)
Year of Manufacture : 2017 | Driven no. of Kms. : NA
- Pros: As it always happens when you plan to buy a car in any particular segment, you are in a confusion in between two or three cars. Same happened with me again this time as well. The competition was between Hcity, Sciaz, Srapid and this little monster. I analysed each one of the product available. Looked into all the pros and cons and I was able to remove Sciaz out of the list. Now it came down to rapid, city and Verna. I went to skoda showroom, saw the car all by myself and I found few key features missing even on the top of the line variant and it was disappointing, moreover when it comes to the looks of the car, you tend to ignore the rapid when you see its elder sister Octavia. I was overwhelmed by Octavia and wanted to buy that one only, but it was out the budget by good lacs of rupees. Cut short the skoda rapid was not worth the money a all. Though it gave a nice competition. Finally, I was left with Hcity and Hverna. And this was the most difficult task for me. I was so much confused in finalising out of these two. Where the city is more tried and tested product, Verna is all new for the market. City has always impressed me and I wanted to buy it. But the all new Verna is aggressive enough in its looks as well as its pricing that it never let me focus entirely on Hcity. I had one constraint that I will buy only diesel car. I own a diesel car and I wanted to buy another one which has to be diesel. So now I started drilling down based on this. I found out Diesel engine for city is not at that par compared to its petrol engine. Big con here. Verna came into picture and offered most powerful Diesel engine of the segment. Big pro here. Similarly, Verna was offering me lots of segment first features and I couldnt ignore them. Finally I made up my mind to purchase the all new Hyundai Verna in black with SX(O) diesel variant. I am very very happy that I made my choice wiTh this car.
- Cons: The only disadvantage I could figure out was the space in the back seat. I read lot of negative comments about this on the Internet. Every reviewer or critic had to mentiOn this point. But when I sat on the back I had more than enough space for myself. And I am 5.7. No one in my family is 6 feet tall and I am not buying this car for anyone else. So it was never a problem for me. Because for me and my family it had more than enough space. To the reviewers of this car, please do not confuse the audience by pointing something negative which may not actually be a negative thing for lot of people out there.i agree hcity has more space in back compared to Verna, but saying it wont suit most buyers isnt fair.
