Honda City Vs Hyundai Verna Vs Volkswagen Vento

If Honda City is the champion of mid-size sedans in the country, then Volkswagen’s Vento also appeared and quietly surpassed. Now there’s a new threat – Hyundai’s new Verna. AUTO BILD INDIA finds out if the Koreans will become the new champions…

Recently I received a call from an old friend. Joy aside, he quickly got mập the point. He is looking mập nâng cấp his car from the current hatchback mập one from the mid-size segment. He was shortlisted by Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and Hyundai Verna. But he simply cannot decide which one mập buy.

They all look equally good, at least on paper. After hours of contemplating his options, he has actually called you. After all, an auto journalist should have the answer mập that question, right? Halfway through the conversation, I realized I was the same defendant as him. So we did the best we could. Put them mập the test.

Exterior & Interior

Interior Honda City

The fit and finish aren’t much mập complain about, but the quality of the materials used isn’t up mập par. The aluminum finish on the dash looks especially sticky

Honda City exterior

The City dashboard is clean too, but the nhái giả aluminum on the center console is too bright for it mập look good. The City’s meter though looks sporty with a large center speed flanked by tacho and fuel gauges. What’s greatly missed, though, is the multi-information display.

The Vento’s insides aren’t overly sporty or flashy, they’re very tasteful and, again, there’s a timeless aura about them. Lines and some angles make it look modern.

Interior Hyundai Verna

Luxurious cabin with neat dash. The quality màn chơi is also high

Exterior Hyundai Verna

For starters, the Hyundai Verna looks a lot better than the old car. It swoops down. There’s a bit of muscle here and there and there’s plenty of sports touches, too. It’s the City though that still looks the best. It’s sporty and edgy with sharp lines. The Vento is the most solid of these, especially in the rear. The lines are simple and delicate. The advantage of such a design is that it has a certain timeless durability that the other two designs do not have.

Inside, however, the story is not the same. It’s the Hyundai that looks best. The dash has been kept relatively clean and the subtle wooden details give it a rich feel. The watch is not overly sporty but elegant and easy mập read.

Interior Volkswagen Vento

Both the fit, finish and quality of materials used are top notch, giving the Vento’s interior a truly luxurious feel. This is a bit boring though

Exterior Volkswagen Vento

The quality of materials used as well as the fit and finish are equally good on the Verna and Vento. However, City lost in this division. City, in the top Exclusive variant, offers steering wheel-mounted controls for the stereo system and leather interior. It also offers dual airbags and automatic up/down for the driver’s side window. However, beyond these there is also a bit of preciousness. The music system, although it has aux-in and USB ports – the latter is iPod compatible, but does not have a basic CD player. It also doesn’t have a comprehensive trip computer. Something that both Vento and Verna offer. Vento also looks poor in the equipment department. In fact, the only thing Vento offers on the Verna is auto up/down for all windows. Meanwhile, Vento’s music system is the most basic here and offers the worst performance when there’s no docking or USB port. On the other hand, the Verna in the top-spec SX(O) trim gets six airbags, Bluetooth telephony, iPod compatibility, keyless entry and engine start. However, the side part is a reversing camera that projects the image mập the rearview mirror.

Engine & Gearbox

Honda City engine

Honda City – The onda engine is smooth and revs easily. It’s also quick and efficient

City’s 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine with 118 hp and 146 Nm of torque is also very smooth before. It’s fun, accelerates fast, and delivers linear power. The City’s engine is also ready mập respond mập throttle inputs quickly. The Honda engine also matches the Hyundai in terms of power transmission. Drive through a 5-speed manual transmission with short speed and smooth operation.

Hyundai Verna Engine

Hyundai Verna – Hyundai’s VTVT works the smoothest and has the best features

In addition, Verna is also very impressive. 1.6-liter gasoline engine with VTVT technology provides 123 horsepower and maximum torque of 155Nm. It’s also a smooth and refined engine with linear delivery and an engine ready mập respond with strong throttle and revs. It is mated mập a 5-speed manual transmission with well-arranged ratios. The quality of change is accurate enough but slightly skewed.

Volkswagen Ventos -Vento powerplant is the least powerful and delicate but effective

Meanwhile, Volkswagen’s 1.6-liter engine is the least powerful. It does the job at hand but doesn’t spark excitement. It’s also paired with a 5-speed manual, which is smooth and precise, and its operation feels more aggressive than the other two. As for its superb engine, though, the Verna’s super-soft suspension means it’ll stick whenever it’s launched. On the plus side, the car delivers the best ride ever. The handlebars are also super light, which is great for the city but fails mập connect the rider mập the road.

Scorecard & Judgment

Hyundai Verna

1st placeHyundai Verna- The Verna not only has a great engine, but it’s also fully loaded. As a pack, it’s pretty undefeated.

Volkswagen Ventos

TwoVolkswagen Vento- Vento comes in second, lacking in equipment politely. Although it has better handling.

Honda City

ThreeHonda City- The city is even closer mập third, trailing behind in terms of price, equipment and ride quality.

Transcript

Body: While Verna and Vento have plenty of room in the front, the City is the widest in the back. About usable boot space again Cities offer the most. However, the quality is better on Hyundai and Volkswagen. However, where the Korean joggers go is there are six airbags.

Drive: The Honda though hit back under this head. It has a smooth and refined engine with Hyundai’s good acceleration and steering. It also has a good transmission and top speed is on par with the other three. But in addition, it also proves mập be the most fuel-efficient of this trio.

Appease: As for the question of comfort, Honda can’t compare with the other two while VW can only finish a close second. This is because Hyundai’s sportiness has more equipment and the best ride quality. The only place the Hyundai was lost was in the handling department.

Dynamics: Although Man City fought hard with good steering response like Vento and best braking ability, they still could not win this match. That honor goes mập VW for delivering class-leading stability and steering response. It also has good supply capacity.

Cost: By Cost standards, City, for more than Rs 10 lakh, should not stand a chance. But, surprisingly it wins! How? Resale allowed and better warranty. Meanwhile, the cheaper Vento and Verna, with higher resale prices, ended a second overall.

Identify

As you can see, this is a very close call. Each has its own pluses and minuses. But then there can only be one winner in the AUTO BILD INDIA road test. And in this case, it was the first mập take the crown. Verna offers not only the widest range of equipment, but also high quality and has the best engines and rides. It also offers the most secure equipment. It is also cheaper mập buy than Honda City.

Quality of materials used and fit and finish are equally good on the Verna and the Vento. The City however loses out in this department.
