Took the delivery of my Fluidic Verna 1.6 CRDI SX High crystal white yesterday.
Good experience with the dealer.
Driven 250 Kms yesterday and initial impressions.
Includes two little long rides, From showroom(coimbatore to Udumalpet(my home))
and My home(udumalpet) to Tiruppur and return to my home.
and also more travelling in the city.
Excellent. Blue lit dials are good to see. Comfortable front seats and rear seats(my dad and cousin were sitting in the rear, they were happy with the rear seats)
As always beautiful
My Driving Experience:
PS: These are my driving experiences and observations,for others the opinion may vary.
I drove a minimum of 200 kms yesterday and rest 50kms by my dad.
I have driven vento, cruze and linea. I felt the ride quality is excellent.
Driven till 100KM/HR. No bobbing motions , the car felt very well planted to the road.
@100km/hr ,For a moment i switched of the AC and the music system, I could only hear a very very little tire noise, nothing else(Engine is sooo quiet). Went through some rough patches of the road too, It handled it with ease.
For first 20Kms it felt too responsive for me, after that i got adjusted to it.Most of the time i maintained the car at above 80km/hr only, No complaints on the steering, it handled well.
I was travelling around 70km/hr and suddenly a bike, out of nowhere crossed the road, slammed the brakes, car was under my control in a second.
I really liked the reverse camera, very useful,even in the dark it works excellent. My grandpa liked the power folding mirrors.Phone pairing using bluetooth is very easy and played songs from that.
Comments from the persons who travelled and saw verna yesterday:
"Back seat is extremely comfy and i dont fell like going at 100km/hr"(My cousin,he owns a tata manza).
"Ride quality is excellent, and interiors are super"(Grandpa,Owns Vento petrol automatic).
"Is it a petrol car??"(My grandma,really she was confused on hearing the engine sound)
"So comfortable to travel"( My mom)
"Please give the wheel to me"(My dad, only after driving around 200kms, i gave the steering wheel to my dad)
Overall a nice buy and a nice experience.But have to drive more to comment on the car better.So far so good.
1.In the showroom they had 3M film costs RS.4200 for all windows.the company is "WORTH". is it good?? My dad inquired in another shop(well known for car accessories) in coimbatore, they quoted Rs.7000,(said it as a japan make,"rabarrier"(not sure of the correct spelling))
2.The showroom guy has asked us to put film for the front glass also,he said that,it would increase the life of dashboard and the colour of it remains for a long time without fading.
Is it good to go for that?? whether we will face any problem during night driving??
He quoted Rs.4500 for that. Outside it was Rs.5000
3.Is it good to go for leather seat covers?? or what material do you suggest for seat covers? art leather?,fabric?
4.Got some black coloured stains on the beige coloured dash board, how to remove them??
I haven't added any accessories so far, took it straight out of the showroom to my home
Thanks and regards
