I have done about 50 kms during the weekend, all city driving. Driving experience is great - a lot smoother and silent - when compared to my Indica (weird comparison though). Suspension is great - the locality where I live has very little to no roads, mud roads, pot holes, bumps, newly laid roads, speed breakers - every scenario what you could expect of a typical Indian city condition. Verna came out with flying colors in all conditions. Plus the steering is super smooth. The Music system is decent enough. Great first hand experience.
Need to mention about the keys - I owned an Audi A4 when I was in the US and I loved the keys (thekey opens with the click of a button and then close it). It was so compact and would easily rest in the pockets. I was surprised to see the same type of Keys with my Verna. Way to go Hyundai!!
On the interiors - I should honestly say, I am overwhelmed with the comfort level. From the very looks of it to the seating comfort, gear shifting, steering, audio controls, bluetooth call connectivity, bluetooth music streaming etc everything is great. My parents were the ones who occupied the rear seats the most and they were happy with the rear seat comfort. Nothing to complain except for the little difficulty during ingress / egress especially when compared to the ease with which we used to ingress / egress in Indica. Verna is just about perfect for a drive with 4 people within the city.
About the FE - when I got my car out of the showroom it was 38 kms done and I was shocked to see the avg FE showed 6.8 km/l. Thanks to maybe some harsh driving from the showroom guys
. At the end of yesterday, I have clocked 97 kms and the avg FE shows 8.9 km/l (didnt reset the trip). Hopefully this will improve.
Planning to go on a long drive the coming weekend. Chennai -> Trichy -> Madurai -> Chennai (close to 1200kms back and forth). Will share my highway experience and highway FE next week.
I will keep posting the things as and when I find something interesting
