Gift from Hyundai

By arvind kuamar

Good: Exteriors and Interiors are fine

Bad: Interior color combination looks very bad.

My vehicle is Hyundai i20 Active and I prefer this vehicle for its stylish appearance. Seeing it from anywhere, it looks very dashing. While compared with elite i20, Active i20 is best in terms of its running performance. Fantastic interiors with spacious cabin and excellent comfort level. Engine performance is unbeatable along with good ride and handling. Overall, it is good to drive even in bad road condition.

Dashing appearance vehicle - Hyundai 4S Fluidic Verna

By arvind kuamar

Good: Smart and Stylish appearance leading urban SUVs

Bad: Limited storage space for its price

I am one of the owner of the Hyundai 4S Fluidic Verna and very much satisfied with the vehicle. The vehicle makes me to feel very good and easy to handle even in tough road condition. In terms of appearance, it is really better than urban SUVs with attractive price range. Moving to the interiors, it is really awesome in which one can feel the cockpid of a plane. The storage space can be improved since it is very limited.
