    Hyundai Verna is 4440mm long, 1729mm wide, 1475mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2600mm. A wider body normally results in better shoulder room and a higher roof makes ingress & egress easier. A longer wheelbase usually results in more cabin space. It has a boot space of 465 litres. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage. Verna has a 165mm ground clearance, it rides on 195/55 R16 tyres size and has 45 litres fuel tank capacity.

    • Honda City 2020 is the longest car in the segment. It is 109mm longer than Verna.
    • Honda City 2020 is the widest car in the segment. It is 19mm wider than Verna.
    • Toyota Yaris is the tallest car in the segment. It is 20mm taller than Verna.
    • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has the longest wheelbase in the segment. Its wheelbase is longer than the Verna’s by 50mm.
    • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and old Honda City have the biggest boot space in the segment measuring 510-lt. The Verna’s boot space is only 4 litres more than the Skoda Rapid, which has the smallest boot space.
    • Toyota Yaris's ground clearance of 175mm is the best in the segment.

    Amongst all the C-segment sedans, Toyota Yaris has the highest ground clearance and the shortest wheelbase. Together, this combination gives it the best breakover angle to go over tall speed breakers with ease. The new City is the biggest car in this segment and it’s likely to have the best cabin space.
