cars have never known to be mirror cracking and thus driving around in a and not getting any second glances is most Hyundai owners be quite used to. South automaker Hyundai, for its part has making rapid progress in the that its cars pack in, and in the way its cars look too.

#8220;Fluidic#8221; design philosophy, as likes to call its brand new language has made it to India#8217;s sedan market, in the form of the Verna Fluidic, and one that has a resounding sales success the last few months. We put the Hyundai 1.6 Diesel  through 500 kilometers of test conditions to find out if the car something more to the table just ravishing good

Talking about ravishing looks, the Hyundai Verna managed to get more than a few when we were ambling the posh Southern part of That people were notice of the car was proof enough of the overall design appeal and marks to Hyundai for producing a looking car for the Indian C-segment market.

The sharp of the Verna Fluidic with the headlamps is the shape of things to from Hyundai and the design of the front end is a dramatic yet pleasant from the ugly and toothy that we#8217;ve been to, from a host of previous The sharp lines continue to the fog which have a boomerang inspired by perhaps the Mercs and of this world.

The bonnet some nice sculpting to for a muscular yet racy appearance the muscular character creases on the sides and the rising window add to the effect. Presto, and you have a roof line that down to endow the car with an and sporty stance that folks would love. The end of the car culminates in wraparound tail with a high-ish boot.

The exteriors get plenty of all around, right from the up front to the the chromed inserts the Verna Fluidic#8217;s fog lamps. The extends to the grab handles on the with a chrome strip on the lid. Rounding off the chrome is the twin muffler tip that gives the Verna Fluidic its appeal from the rear.

16 wheels on alloy rims up the large wheel wells of the car well.

Enough of the looks let#8217;s look at what the Fluidic has in store for us on the inside, we? The first thing that#8217;ll you when you step into the beige themed cabin is the this tough-to-maintain color the car with. The interiors of the Hyundai Fluidic are easily amongst the in the Indian C-segment sedan especially when it comes to the way the and other materials like the trims feel to touch.

Verna Fluidic Diesel Dashboard

The rubbery finish on the dashboard of the car doesn#8217;t just good to touch but also is a grippy surface. While the cockpit dashboard isn#8217;t a radical design like the of the car, the dark wood framing the center console is a touch. That said, we didn#8217;t like the lighter veneer on the door trim looked and felt like a afterthought.

A few nice touches are the chrome finished door levers, a satin finish on the clad steering wheel#8217;s half and the push to operate lamps. A sore point on the car was the dotted pattern on the seats, we felt looked straight out of the So, the design of the Verna Fluidic#8217;s interiors, high quality have a few which very easily have been avoided by India.

Utility is a strong point of the car#8217;s You get a nice little sunglass just above the car#8217;s view mirror which is a addition. The glove box on the dash has a amount of space to fit it much than say the car#8217;s papers.

the driver#8217;s arm rest behind the lever encloses another hole good for a couple of items like your phone or an MP3 player.

A full bottle holder sits in the driver and the passenger along a smaller cup holder. The front have space for a few magazines and can a 500 ml bottle each. The rear also opens up into a cavity that could a small paperback while the seats have magazine at their rear.

The boot being reasonably capacious, can a large suitcase plus a of small bags.

The Verna Fluidic#8217;s  leather front seats are very while the rear seats too a reasonable amount of head, leg and room. Despite the car#8217;s line rising sharply, has ensured that the rear are large enough to avoid any of claustrophobia.  While three can be squeezed in the at rear, the rear is most comfortable for two adults.

Getting the Hyundai Verna Fluidic, snug is just a matter of the steering and the front seat Being an automatic, the car is a perfect of get up and go. You thumb the push button for the 1.6 Liter, 16 Valve common turbo diesel engine to to a very refined thrum.

What wasn#8217;t that all refined was the way the switchgear felt. the Verna Fluidic#8217;s switchgear feel as high quality as the offers.

While the diesel overall refinement is of very order, clatter with the up was somehow higher than the was with the windows down. was quite peculiar and perhaps a issue to this car in particular, as the felt and sounded superbly even from the outside.

has really managed to achieve a high order of refinement its range of CRDI diesel and this 128 Bhp-260 Nm unit is no What lets the engine really, is the antiquated 4 speed gearbox, which simply to harness the full performance of the cracker of a diesel engine.

Verna Fluidic Diesel Gear Shift

What is reasonably well is, it masks the lag of the engine when progress is such as city traffic. so, urgent overtaking which for a quick response from the is simply absent in the 4 speed So, the superb engine which have been a highway is reduced to a non eager city motor because of the 4 speed

The motor feels best in the amble mode when you use throttle inputs for steady Driven with a light the Verna Fluidic Automatic is a car to drive around town as the quality is quite good on sections of city roads and the assorted bumps. The electric steering is very light and the Verna Fluidic Automatic in the is almost an effortless experience.

though brisk is marred by the discernible shifts from the 4 automatic gearbox. Progress is although there is plenty of lag up to 2000 rpm when you stomp on the go But the 265 Nm of torque is enough for steady even with the turbo time to spool up for that effect.

On the highway too, cruising speeds can be maintained and the Fluidic in automatic guise can do a top speed of 180 kph depending on the road That said, the soft allied to the lifeless electric steering at speed, really these speeds scary to say the

The car begins to have a floaty anywhere above 120 kph and with the steering, you#8217;re really not on the long, high speed where even a slight can unsettle the Verna. Braking is quite effective with brakes all around and ABS-EBD in to assist with the stopping However, the soft suspension set up that hard braking a pronounced diving effect.

120 Kph though, the speeds under most people on Indian will drive, the car is quite a mile muncher and being an version is more of  point and machine. On the twisties though, the suspension of the Verna really itself into a lot of disconcerting roll, so much so that passengers will want to up after a bout of hard in the twisties.

This is that Hyundai has simply not to solve in consecutive versions of the and it is quite disappointing from an perspective. So, if you love driving, car, both in manual or guise, is simply not for you. For the of the folks though, the Verna will get the job done with ease.

So, the Verna Fluidic is aimed at the gallery and thus, India has played clever to the car plenty of features to appeal to a section of car buyers.

Being one of the latest cars to hit the C-Segment sedan space, the Fluidic comes with a of features like a reverse an alternator management system to fuel, automatic retracting rear view mirrors, a glove box, a push start, six airbags, an anti rear view mirror and a placed driver arm rest.

The features this car offers will be a selling point and this is the Verna Fluidic really by offering car buyers a superb of bells and tinkles that are very, very useful. For the reverse camera whose sits on the rear view makes life a whole lot while reversing the car.

The placed driver arm rest is feature that works well to reduce driver over longer distances. this is one feature that is available only on much expensive cars. Likewise, the class leading features living with the Verna a nice experience and these things over time really grow on owners.

Verna Fluidic Diesel Center Console

The car stereo of the Fluidic, though being a 2 DIN is nothing to write home Sound quality is acceptable at the reaches of the volume spectrum the unit sounding quite once the volume  gets A good thing though is the placement of the USB and AUX port which it quite comfortable to access.

One that will help the of the Diesel Automatic that the Fluidic is, is the fuel economy of car. 10 KPL in the city with figure going up to 13-14 on the highway if driven with inputs will gladden a heart even as petrol are horribly expensive to run given the prices at which petrol these days.
