The Hyundai Venue compact SUV has been launched in India. This marks the entry of India’s second largest car maker in arguably the most competitive segment in the country – compact SUVs. The Venue is available with two petrol and one diesel engine option. Deliveries of the Hyundai Venue in India will commence immediately. It is worth noting that the prices announced are introductory in nature and are most likely to be increased in a few months. The Venue is essentially a production-version of the Carlino concept that the automaker showcased a few years back. It is an important product for the manufacturer as it will take on the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon. The company has thus made sure that the Venue is aptly packaged so as to provide a tough competition to other contenders in this segment.
The Hyundai Venue is available in six variants – E, S, SX, SX Dual Tone, SX+ and SX(O). The diesel variants are powered by a 1.4-litre, four-cylinder turbo engine. This is the same block that is found under the hood of the Creta. It thus develops 90 hp and 220 Nm of torque. Petrol engine options include a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated unit putting out 83 hp, and a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder block exhaling 120 hp. The turbo petrol and the diesel engine are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, with the former also getting a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox. Meanwhile, the 1.2 petrol comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Hyundai claims that the Venue turbo petrol can deliver a fuel economy figure of 18.15 km/l for the automatic power-train and 18.27 km/l for the manual power-train. Meanwhile, the 1.2 petrol manual is rated at 17.52 km/l and the 1.4 diesel is claimed to extract 23.7 km/l of mileage.
Hyundai has loaded the Venue compact SUV with features to the brim. The base spec model comes with power steering, AC, front power windows, and a 12V power socket. Meanwhile, the top-spec variant gets advanced features like wireless charging, automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen system, and Hyundai’s BlueLink connectivity features. Safety features like dual airbags, ABS and EBD are offered as standard, while six airbags and electronic stability control are added on the higher variants.
