10 Improvement Suggestions For The Hyundai Verna

10 Improvement Suggestions For The Hyundai Verna

Hyundai Verna is currently one of the best selling c-segment sedans in the market. Verna is among those sedans in the Indian automotive industry that did withstand the SUV storm and is still going strong. Hyundai Verna was essentially the next generation of the Hyundai Accent, an arch-rival of the Honda City. Later Hyundai gave the torch to Verna in 2006. But over the years, the sedan has come in 2022 by leaps and bounds. It was 2020 when Hyundai gave the Verna a facelift. That said, where the vehicle is an engineered marvel, it does lack somewhere. So, here we count 10 suggestions for Hyundai to improve the Hyundai Verna and iron them out in the next iteration.

  1. Stiff Steering Wheel

    Starting with the steering wheel, which many of the owners have complained about. For starters, the steering is precise and never feels alarming to drive. The problem lies when driving the vehicle fast, the steering is a little too soft to gain confidence in the vehicle. Additionally, it is not a big deal, and humans will eventually get used to it. The problem comes when you simultaneously switch between different cars. This is when you’ll know the exact difference and the problem in having a very light steering wheel.

  2. More Premium Infotainment System

    All the premium cars from Hyundai come with a larger 10.25-inch infotainment system and a premium BOSE sound system. This is true for Creta, Alcazar, and even i20. It is just the Hyundai Verna that misses on that. Maybe, the Korean carmaker will definitely get a chance to add it to the next generation of Verna which has been due for a long time.

  3. Versatile instrument cluster

    It was the facelift when Hyundai updated the Verna in 2020 with an all-digital instrument cluster. At a first glance, it does look like the screen that Alcazar features, but sadly these are fixed digital displays. Additionally, the instrument cluster though looks cool, it is definitely hard to read. The only thing that falls to our eyes is the digital number readouts and not the digital dials. Hyundai, please don’t overdo it.

  4. Better Rear Leg-Room

    Okay, we eventually had to come to THE BIGGEST BUMMER about the Hyundai Verna cabin, rear-seat leg and headroom. This might sound a little shocking but the Maruti Suzuki Dzire has more legroom and headroom when compared to Hyundai Verna. With the next generation, more space in the second row will be appreciated.

  5. Additional Safety Aids

    Cars that cost between 17-20 Lakh get a plethora of occupant safety aids. For instance, a blind spot monitor, an advanced driver assistance system and more. With that, the new Hyundai Verna will definitely get 6 airbags as standard versus now, where they are a part of the SX(o) kit.

  6. Need A Typical DCT

    2020 Hyundai Verna Turbo DCT

    Currently, with the turbo petrol engine, Hyundai Verna does get a DCT or a dual-clutch transmission. In theory (practically too in the majority of cases), the DCT is faster and more responsive than a torque converter. But it’s hard to break it down, that Hyundai has detuned the TCU (Transmission Control Unit) for reliability. What this translates is that the gear shifts are lethargic and take relatively more time than any other DCT say from the house of the Germans.

  7. At Least 1.4-litre T-GDI would be better

    1.4-litre T-GDi Turbo-Petrol

    Before the launch of Hyundai Verna, the carmaker launched the SUV Creta in India/ This was the first vehicle from Hyundai to get the more powerful 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine. Sharing the same set of engines as the Creta from the start, we were happy and assumed Verna too will come to the same powertrain. Later we waited just to know that the Hyundai Verna Turbo comes with the less powerful 1.0-litre 3 cylinder motor. Where it is adequately powerful, it lacks the feel of driving and surely is slow.

  8. Better Brakes

    The Hyundai Varna Turbo variant sits even above the SX(O). Why> the Turbo variants get a couple of upgrades over the conventional SX(O) variant. one of which is disc brakes on all 4 corners. This sounds pretty sick for the price, but sadly, they lack the bite associated with a disc brake. Also, upon tensing, the turbo variant takes a marginally longer distance to stop the vehicle from identical speeds.

  9. Standard Features Across Variants

    As said earlier, the Tubo variant even sits one among the top-end SX(O) variants. In addition to the SX(O), Hyundai Verna also gets an all-black interior, 4 disc brakes, and also front parking sensors. With that couple of the mid variants also boast wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which the top end trim and the base variants lack.

  10. Better Quality Dashboard

    Hyundai Verna comes with a good looking dashboard, with an infotainment system slightly tilted towards the driver side. This definitely shouts which is the best hot seat in the vehicle. Where the dash does look purposeful, it lacks in the quality of materials. Hyundai Verna gets an all-plastic dashboard which is a big downer. All the rest of its rivals do some with soft-touch material here and there, to uplift the user experience of the vehicle. The same is expected from the next generation of Hyundai Verna.

So, after about an experience of owning the new Hyundai Verna, these were the improvements we expect Hyundai to iron out in the next generation. Also, let us know in the comment section below, is there anything the carmaker should do to the next-gen Hyundai Verna?
