Verna has been one of the best selling sedans in the market. I use SX(O) VTVT MT, have completed 50K odo reading recently. Have used it for long trips to B'lore, Mysore and Tirupati many times. And I frequently travel between Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam. There are many plusses to discuss. Good travel mate, never gave trouble, awesome road presence, good boot space, refined engine, perfect ac, good drivability, stylish looks, and affordable pricing & service costs. On the negatives, rear seat comfort is something missing in Verna. Slight improvement in ground clearance will also help. Mileage is something which needs improvement (with the soaring Petrol prices, it is becoming costlier for long travel).
Overall, Verna is an excellent sedan, VFM car and will give a seamless performance matching expectations. No big complaints. Modern & Stylish yet value for money car overall.
