Depending on the variant, you’ll have to cover 58,992 to 61,470 km with the Hyundai Verna diesel manual to recover the extra price you pay upfront over the Verna petrol. With the automatic, you’ll have to drive at least 1.03 lakh km to justify buying the Verna diesel over the petrol automatic.

Should You Buy Hyundai Verna Petrol Or Diesel?

A Verna diesel-manual buyer will need to cover about 60,000km to recover the higher upfront cost for the diesel engine over the petrol engine. This is a reasonable figure. So, we’ll recommend the Verna diesel-manual to buyers who plan to drive the car for 75,000km to 1 lakh km during the ownership.

With the automatic transmission, the km-to-breakeven figure suffers because of the fluid coupling of the torque converter automatic in the diesel model. The Verna diesel automatic will need to cover more than 1.0 lakh kilometres just to recover the higher upfront ex-showroom cost of the diesel engine. So, for Verna automatic buyers, the petrol model will do better because even most long-term buyers typically only do about 1 lakh kilometres before upgrading to a newer car. Only mile-munchers who drive so much that they can cover even 2.0 lakh kilometres during the ownership should consider the Verna diesel automatic to make it a profitable decision.
