Hyundai Verna Fluidic SX (O) Experience : page 43 post 590 by Me
" Hey Guys. Anyone here using a Verna Fluidic Diesel Automatic. Wanted to have some feedback about the performance and FE of this 4 speed Hyundai Auto Box. In the current crop of Automatic cars Hyundai seems to be the only company still using this 4 speed auto box. The Hondas are on 5 speed auto boxes whereas the Skodas and the VWs are now on 6 speed DSG Auto Boxes. Since I have booked a diesel automatic , I was keen to know the performance in terms of pickup and FE in city and highway. Would the car be as responsive as the 6 speed manual diesel that most of you guys on the forum have or would it be a slow coach."

" as i saw in reviews , it will be little slower then manual... i think it takes 2 sec more to reach 0-100 then ours. manual takes 10.2 secs.
and it's not good for enthusiastic drive and for overtaking as it doesnt have dual clutch gear box like the new ford fiesta diesel automatic offers and usually common in most supercars."

"the dsg although very good have a fancy of getting issues. for enthusiastic driving manual gears are the best you can even change using the shiftronic of what ever hyundai calls it while in d mode. but you have four gears and downshifting takes time to react when you perform a kick down. its good while in cities. to save more fuel on these cars shift to neutral its a better thing then keeping brakes pressed and in d mode.
on paper there is no difference. fe should be 19/20 highway.

"Nick. That sounds good and reassuring. I did try the shiftronic on my test drive and it seemed pretty good and convenient. The initial pickup from a standing start was also quite good. Just that I couldn't get to do a long highway drive. I wonder like Niel says how the overtaking would be. God bless Hyundai if they manage a FE oof 19/20 on highway as that would mean a FE of around 14/15 in city. Shifting to neutral from D gear would be a good option in the city to conserve fuel in in the intrest of a better FE. 90% of my driving is in the dreaded mumbai traffic and My left leg seems to have developed extra muscles using the clutch over a couple of lakhs of Kms in my various cars over the past many years. Given the petrol prices, diesel seemed to be the only way out. Having scouted the entire range of cars in this price range it was quite surprising to find that there is zero choice for a diesel automatic sedan in this price band and hence the Hyundai Verna diesel Automatic. Thanks to Hyundai for giving this Option. Hope it was a wise decision. Hope to rest my tired left leg muscles. Wished there were some Hyundai Verna diesel automatic users in these forums to share their first hand views. Maybe we should have a new thread on this Hyundai Verna Diesel Automatic Ownership Experience. What say guys."
