You won't waste any time in realising two facts — the Verna’s interiors feel as fresh as the exterior and there are more features too. Keyless entry and start-stop button? Check. Reversing camera mounted on automatically dimming rear view mirror and parking sensors? Check. Bluetooth system with aux-in/USB? Check. Audio controls on steering? Check. Electronically foldable outside mirrors? Check. Six airbags? Check. All these features, found on the top-end SX(O) aren’t available on the top-end Vento Highline which has just three redeeming features — a pair of air vents at the rear, a tilt and height adjustable steering and the now famous adjustable front-passenger seat that leaves more space for the occupant just behind. Despite the sloping roof at the rear, the Verna doesn’t feel short on headroom and there’s ample shoulder and legroom. The middle seat is also more useful for short trips, since the floor is flat unlike the one in the Vento where the central hump makes life a bit more difficult.
Both cars have it pretty good when it comes to the quality of the build. The Vento feels solid and should withstand abuse over years, while the Verna’s soft-touch plastics and use of surfaces is pleasing not just to the eye, but to your hands as well.
