Hyundai has started the mass production of its Venue sub-compact SUV at its plant in Chennai. The carmaker will enter the sub-4m SUV segment for the first time in India with the Venue when it’s officially launched on 21 May. The Venue can be booked online as well as at Hyundai’s dealerships for an amount of Rs 21,000.
Hyundai will offer the Venue with two petrol engine options (1.2-litre naturally aspirated and 1.0-litre turbocharged) and one diesel engine (1.4-litre). The 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre engine options are also available on the Elite i20, but the 1.0-litre engine will debut on the sub-4m SUV. While all the three engines will be available with a manual transmission, only the 1.0-litre petrol engine will have the option of automatic transmission, a 7-speed dual-clutch unit.
The Venue will be available in seven monotone colour options — Star Dust, Fiery Red, Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Deep Forest, Lava Orange, Denim Blue — on all variants. It will also be available with three dual-tone colour options – blue with white roof, white with black roof and orange with black roof -, albeit only on the SX variant. The official image released by Hyundai reveals the India-spec Venue in dual-tone (orange with black roof and ORVMs) exterior colour combination for the first time.
Here are the variant-wise powertrain and exterior colour options for the Hyundai Venue:
|Variant||Powertrain options||Exterior colour options|
|E||1.2 MT & 1.4 MT||All monotone|
|S||1.2 MT, 1.0 MT, 1.0 DCT and 1.4 MT||All monotone|
|SX||1.0 MT, 1.4 MT||All monotone & all dual-tone|
|SX (O)||1.0 MT, 1.4 MT||All monotone|
|SX+||1.0 DCT||All monotone|
Hyundai is yet to reveal the variant-wise features of the Venue, but we already know its top variant will offer features like an 8-inch infotainment system with Hyundai Blue Link telematics and internet-based (eSIM) connectivity features, an electric sunroof and six airbags.
In India, the Venue will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300. We expect the Venue’s prices to start from around Rs 7.2 lakh and go up to Rs 12 lakh.
