How does the interior space in the newly launched Hyundai Venue stack up against its opposition?

  • The EcoSport is the longest and tallest SUV on the list and also offers the most boot space.
  • The XUV300 is the widest SUV and has the longest wheelbase too.
  • Your legs will be the most comfortable in the first row of the EcoSport.
  • It is the easiest to seat three people in the second row of the Vitara Brezza and XUV300.
  • The Venue offers the tallest seat back in the second row.

Hyundai recently launched the Venue in India, posing a serious challenge to the monopoly that the Vitara Brezza enjoys in the sub-4 metre SUV segment. Today we are comparing which SUV in this segment offers the most amount of space inside the cabin — the Venue or its competitors, the Vitara Brezza, Nexon and EcoSport.

Before we dive into their interior dimensions, let us first have a look at how they measure up from the outside.

Headroom (min-max) 885-965mm 885-975mm 950-990mm 965-1020mm 870-1005mm
Legroom (min-max) 910-1070mm 935-1110mm 890-1060mm 900-1050mm 955-1105mm (passenger side affected by centre console)

The Nexon offers the most headroom in the first row while the EcoSport offers the most legroom. The most amount of kneeroom on offer is also in the EcoSport while the best under-thigh support can be had in both the XUV300 and EcoSport. The XUV300 has the tallest seatback and thus taller passengers will fit more comfortably in its seats. The Venue here is just about average in various parameters; it doesn’t excel or fall too short compared to rivals.

Second-row

Dimensions (mm) Hyundai Venue Mahindra XUV300 Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Tata Nexon Ford EcoSport
Headroom 970mm 925mm 950mm 970mm 930mm
Shoulder-room 1290mm 1330mm 1400mm 1385mm 1225mm
Kneeroom (min-max) 575-785mm 600-830mm 625-860mm 715-905mm 590-800mm
Seat base length 450mm 445mm 460mm 510mm 480mm
Seat base width 1235mm 1320mm 1300mm 1220mm 1230mm
Seat back height 655mm 650mm 600mm 610mm 610mm

The Nexon offers the most amount of headroom in the second row as well, and thus taller passengers will be the most comfortable here. The Hyundai Venue also offers identical headroom to the Nexon. The Vitara Brezza offers the most shoulder room while the XUV300 has the widest seat base. It will be relatively easier fitting three adults in the second row of these SUVs. The Nexon has the longest seat base and would thus offer the best under thigh support. The Venue has the tallest seat back and hence taller passengers will be most comfortable in its second row.
