Toyota Yaris Vs Hyundai Verna – Verdict

It is a very tough choice between Toyota Yaris and Hyundai Verna. This time, not the features but the looks of the car will define the buyer of these cars. Yaris looks a tad old-school on the outside with that bulky body on small tyres. It can be perfect for a chauffeur driven car or people above 40s. The shape of Yaris would not appeal to the youth. However, Yaris is the most premium and comparatively the safest car you can get in this segment.

On the other hand, Verna looks sporty and aggressive. Verna will be youth buyer car, mainly in the late 20s and early 30s age group. If it comes to features, Yaris offers some features more than Verna and vice-versa. Like Yaris offers better safety features, Electronic Adjusted Passenger seat and front parking sensors. On the other hand, Verna offers sunroof, cooled seats and Automatic Headlamps. So for the verdict, the choice depends upon the buyer, but both are a good choice for their set of buyers.
