“Piece of Art this sedan is!”, said many when the Verna was introduced in India. Companies like Honda, Toyota & Suzuki had a tough competition. After fighting for many years and introducing newer models and facelifts, some companies stayed in the competition while the others left. Later, the Verna lost this competition because it’s competitors introduced models which were more advanced in handling, comfort, appearance and fuel efficiency

While on holidays one can easily pack stuff for as many days as they want as the boot is humongous. Cruise on the motorways with the help of cruise control, command the system to perform actions you want to do directly from your steering wheel. Open up the smart roof and let your kids or loved ones feel the air with safety. The car is equipped with Isofix seats so that one can easily attach the kid’s bucket seats to it. All the seats are bucket seats and hold the travellers in a comfortable position. The roofline is low thus seating a six feet tall person at the back would be uncomfortable, but not impossible.

Rear passengers have their own A/C vents and rear manual curtains for privacy. Ride quality is better than its rivals, it manages uneven stretches and potholes without stress and does not scrape the underbelly, unlike its rivals.

The only reason why it is still back is fuel. It drinks fuel a bit more than its rivals and thus ends up being second. But can’t one compromise that when they get so much for so little.
