Hyundai Updates Its Flagship Sedan The Verna At 7.29 Lakh

The fluidic Verna since its debut is doing wonders for the Korean manufacturer in India. Hyundai is the second largest car manufacturer in the country with its offering in almost entire segment second to Maruti Suzuki. The Hyundai Verna with the manufactures fluidic sculpture design scheme eradicates the blandness of the previous generation vehicle and the car turns out to be a head turner. The coupe inspired roof-line along with the array of segment first features and eye catch fluidic design sales of this flagship sedan of Hyundai cars are sky high since its launch. The manufacturer silently updated the vehicle with minor cosmetic changes and available this Hyundai at all dealerships across country. The Hyundai Verna price starts from Rs. 7.29 lakh for the base while the top end comes at Rs. 11.48 lakh ex-showroom capital region of our country.
Hyundai Verna Fluidic
Let us talk about the changes first, Hyundai Verna pictures shows that the facelift is minor. Majority of the changes are seen inside. Now, we get back illuminated buttons for the power window, steering mounted buttons and few buttons on the dashboard.  The rear sets now sports two head rests instead of three available in the current version on sale. The top of the line variant of the car now, rides on newly styled alloys wheels. Only four alloys are provided by the manufacturer, spare wheel comes with steel rim only. Day time running LED’s were expected with this facelift but the company dropped this out from this recent refresh. It will sorely be missed by the customers as they will always see on the road its younger sibling the i20 flaunting its DRls. Rest of the Hyundai Verna features offered currently will remain same and are retained in this updated version.
Hyundai Verna Fluidic
Mechanically, the car will be same as before and is offered with four engine options two petrol and two diesel versions and three transmission options. The 1.4 and 1.6 petrol churn out 105 and 121 break horse power at 6300 Rpm respectively. The diesel counter parts 1.4 and 1.6 muster 88 and 126 break horse power at 4000 rpm respectively. The Verna is a very spirited car, it cruises well on the free ways and city manoeuvring is bliss thanks to its electronic power steering. It is the most powerful vehicle in its class. However, the car does not give you the confidence of a planted ride on highways due to its soft spring and hardened dampers. At high speed the automobile gives bumpy slightly unsettled ride. Though, the city potholes are soaked very well by the auto mobile. This mild refresh on the car will help it to cope up with the current offering in the segment and soon to be launched face lifted Fiat Linea.

The Question Arises-Is Toyota Etios The Real Sedan?

The Japanese maker, Toyota Cars India, rolled out the Etios in the year 2010 just after unveiling it earlier at a Auto Expo in the same year. However, the entire hard work of the team and the maker went in when when it the car end in smoke and could not really live the expectations. The vehicle caused the the maker monetary loss. Also, the brand losses its attempt to sought after image a bit. The all new Toyota Etios Price has been kept much affordable not only for high class but also for the middle class buyers. It comes in the range of 5.49 to 8.24 Lakh (New Delhi).
Toyota Etios
Toyota is known for building cars with quality, however, this car was an exception. There was no quality in it and was considered like it is made to a cost. Sarcastically, the maker referred to this car as a 'Quality Revolution' which was completely misleading. The Japanese manufacturer has made changes to the car and relaunched it earlier 2013. The car continues failing to attract the customers and seemed as bland as it always looked. The chrome inserts really did not help it. The tag line 'Quality Revolution' was funny but the maker is gone one step ahead and named Etios face-lifted avatar 'The Real Sedan' , which seems even a bigger joke. This car looks like a bread box on wheels and its design looks very plane-jane both inside-out.
Toyota Etios
Toyota Etios is powered by a 1.5 litre petrol engine with a displacement of 1496 cc. The maximum power out put, generated by this 16 valve engine is 88.8 bhp arrives at 5600 rpm whereas a peak torque production of this engine is 132 Nm at 3000 rpm. In terms of mileage, this sedan offers a rich mileage of 13.5 kmpl in city conditions and on wider and smoother roads of a highway, it delivers 16.8 kmpl. On this level, this car performs very well.
Toyota Etios Features a suspension system which is up to the mark. It has McPherson Strut at the front and Torsion Beam at the rear suspension to save you from each bump you come across while your journey. The braking system consists of front disc and the rear is drum, which also works pretty fine. On the grounds of speed, this sedan offers a good speed. It can reach up to a decent mark very quickly. However, its base variant lacks power steering, power windows and remote central locking. Toyota Etios Pictures a design which is not too attractive and that is the real backdrop of the car. Its design and styling are too basic and bland.
