Hyundai Verna 2011-2014 Overview
With 2570mm longer wheelbase, the new Verna is more spacious than its elder sibling. The Hyundai doesn’t seem taking any risk with its interior and maintained the conventional dual-tone theme and suite of goodies. The interior quality is relatively better than its predecessor. The 3rd generation Hyundai Verna comes loaded with automatic control unit, integrated stereo music system, power steering windows, dual tone dashboard, well-cushioned seats and various other comfort and safety features. The Verna Fluidic is available in four engine options (1.4-litre and 1.6-litre capacities both in diesel and engine). Its 1.4-litre, 4 cylinder petrol unit churns out a maximum power of 107-PS @ 6300rpm and 13.8kgm of peak torque @ 5000rpm.
This powertrian offers a displacement of 1396cc, which is same for its 1.4-litre diesel engine version as well. The 1.6-litre petrol variant is relatively more powerful than its 1.4-litre petrol engine version. This unit produces a maximum power of 123.05PS @ 6300rpm and torque of 15.8kgm @ 4200rpm. But, in terms of fuel efficiency the 1.4-litre petrol engine version is more promising that delivers a mileage of 17.43kmpl, whereas its 1.6-litre petrol engine offers a mileage of 17.01kmpl. On the other side, the Hyundai Verna’s 1.4-litre, 4 cylinder in-line diesel engine option develops a peak power of 90PS @ 4000rpm and torque of 22.43kgm @ 1750~2750rpm.
The1.6-litre diesel engine option is the maximum torque producing version of the Verna with producing 128.08PS @ 4000rpm and 26.50kgm @ 2750rpm respectively. Both the 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines are available in automatic and manual transmission modes. The Verna 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre diesel engines are very fuel efficient that offer a mileage of 23.50kmpl and 22.32kmpl respectively. When it comes to acceleration/pick-up, top variants of the new generation Hyundai Verna (i.e. the 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine options) mark higher grades in this department. The City drivability is restricted, but it’s fun to drive on highways at high speeds. The new Hyundai Verna is a practical value for money, which is available within the price range of Rs.7.50-lakhs to Rs.11.89-lakhs.
Hyundai Verna 2011-2014 Exterior
Side profile of the Hyundai Verna is managed by the flowing bold crease that runs from the front bumper, splits around door handles and extends across the tail lamps. Its rear looks sporty with dual tailpipes. The paint and finishing quality is improved, adding more to its premium look. The wheelbase is increased by 70mm than the old Verna.
Hyundai Verna’s dimensions measure around 4370mm (length) x 1700mm (width) x 1475mm (height) rewarding it a premium sedan appearance. The new Hyundai Verna is assembled with powerful 16-inches, 8 spoke alloy wheels that offer fine grip and driving pleasure at high speeds. The 195/55 R16 Bridgestone tyres are affixed over these wheels. However, the base variants are equipped with 15-inches wheels. The new Hyundai Verna is available in six unique colors Carbon Grey, Sleek Silver, Crystal White, Phantom Black, Stone Beige and Purple Fantasia.
Hyundai Verna 2011-2014 Interior
The front seats of the Verna offers good under thigh support and legroom, but the limited legroom for rear seat is an issue. There is armrest for the passengers and one can store some items inside the provided storage compartment. Five passengers can comfortably accommodate in its spacious cabin. There is tilt adjustable steering and automatic climate control unit. The power window and mirror switches feel fragile.
A good quality music system is integrated with CD player, FM radio, Bluetooth, USB, Aux-in and iPod support. The top-end variants of the new Hyundai Verna come with a smart key that provides remote access to the car so that one can easily unlock the doors and start the car too. Whereas, a standard foldable key fob is available with its base variants. The small door pockets can hold the maximum 500ml bottles, few newspapers etc. However, there is no provision of door pocket for rear passengers. Its doors are open wide offering easy ingress and egress. The 465-litre of boot space provides enough space for large luggage bags. However, the mounted loading lip with narrow opening is troublesome.
Hyundai Verna 2011-2014 Engine & Transmission
Coming to the Hyundai Verna diesel, its 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre diesel engine variants come with 6-speed manual transmission. Same as the 1.6-litre petrol engine, its 1.6-litre unit is also available with four speed automatic transmission option. The 1.4-litre diesel motor delivers a peak power of 90PS @ 4000rpm and torque of 22.43kgm @ 1750~2750rpm. On the other side, the 1.6-litre diesel engine produces an impressive torque and power. It churns out a peak power of 128.08PS @ 4000rpm and maximum torque of 26.50kgm @ 2750rpm.
There is significant turbo lag up-to 1800rpm, but above 2000rpms this powertrain shows its real power. However, the lag is more prominent in city. When it comes to fuel efficiency, both the diesel engine options prove to be a brilliant performer. Hyundai Verna’s 1.4-litre offers a mileage of 23.50kmpl, whereas the 1.6-litre diesel engine delivers a fuel economy of 22.32kmpl. The top-variants of the new Hyundai Verna are exciting options for the car fanatics.

The compression ratio for the Verna’s petrol and diesel versions are 10 and 17-17.3 respectively.

Hyundai Verna 2011-2014 Performance and Handling
What do we think about Hyundai Verna 2011-2014?
The comfort levels in Hyundai Verna are much better compared to the rivals and even the exterior styling is undoubtedly best in the class. The steering wheel is very light which proves to be an advantage for those driving mostly within the city. Moreover, the petrol and diesel engines are powerful enough to challenge any of the competing sedans. Also the pricing of the car is kept competitive to attract large number of sedan buyers. Offerings like six airbags, high quality music system, parking sensors with camera, large boot space of 465 litres and unbeatable fluidic design makes it a value for money three-box.
Hyundai Verna 2011-2014 Competitors
Hyundai Verna in the Indian market mainly competes with Honda City and Volkswagen Vento. As far as its competition with Honda City is concerned, it secures more features that too at a competitive pricing.
From the buyers’ point of view, the Verna seems to be a better choice as it comes in a multiple engine options including two efficient diesel engines. However, the recently unveiled Honda City 2014 diesel, which will be launched in January, 2014 can be a cause of worry for Hyundai. The looks of Honda City 2014 unveiled are more adorable than the Fluidic Verna.
Volkswagen Vento, the other rival of Hyundai Verna also comes with many appreciable qualities. It has tough built exteriors, smart styling and vibrant petrol and diesel engines. Also the road grip of Volkswagen Vento is better than the Verna’s. But Volkswagen Vento’s diesel engine is often complained of being noisy. The interior comforts of Hyundai Verna are no doubt much better compared to that of Volkswagen Vento.
