Leaving city ivtec aside how it fares along with vento or rapid 1.6MPI ?
As a prospective buyer of verna petrol i would be glad to know it .
In vento official review its mentioned that Vento MPI is an equal competitor to IVTEC.
But there is no official review on petrol verna.
Kindly put your thoughts performance wise .
I found a comprehensive review in AutoCarIndia
). I think it is their November 2017 issue
. I'll pick it up today evening. I found the review to have lots of interesting data. Though one can get ALL the info by clicking (expanding) through different sections (under the link above), I thought of compiling necessary statistics
here. I quote verbatim from AutoCarIndia site
, on the Petrol Verna Review
The dual variable valve timing-equipped petrol engine, for one, makes the same 123hp of max power as before but now does so at 6,400rpm rather than the earlier Verna’s 6,300rpm. And where the engine developed its 155Nm of max torque at 4,200rpm in the old Verna, it makes a marginally lesser 151Nm at a later 4,850rpm in the new car. Hyundai has also enhanced the engine’s low-end pulling power to ease drivability. At 1,500rpm, the engine makes 130Nm as opposed to 121Nm in the older car.
The new Verna petrol manual is not only quicker than the old car in flat-out acceleration and through the gears, but is actually the quickest
of its peers in gears four and five, and all but matches the surprisingly brisk Maruti Ciaz in the third gear slog too.
There’s a new-found flexibility to the engine, which is a boon in town and allows you to get by driving in a higher gear without much protest from the car. And it’s not that the pleasant gearbox or the light (if slightly springy) clutch are bothersome to use either, refinement levels are also excellent at low revs so you’d just find yourself upshifting early by default. At times when you do hold on to the gear, the engine will rev cleanly to 5,000rpm, after which it takes its time to get to the 6,500rpm limiter. That Honda City VTEC-like manic top-end rush is, unfortunately, missing. Ride & Handling: Please click the section in the link above
and read. FE:
The Verna petrol manual delivered a par for the course at 9.2kpl in town and 13.5kpl on the highway. As expected, the petrol auto proved quite thirsty in town with a figure of 8.5kpl, though highway economy improved to a reasonable 12.3kpl ... 80 to 0 kph Braking:
2.28 sec, 25.90 m 0 - 100 kph Acceleration:
11.18 sec Quarter Mile Acceleration:
17.99 sec 20-80kph (in third gear) Acceleration:
11.71 sec 40-100kph (in fourth gear) Acceleration:
15.56 sec Verdict:
... petrol or diesel, manual or automatic, you won’t be left wanting for the way the Verna performs.
