Hyundai Venue Debuts Today: See The Livestream Here

It made debut a few hours ago and enters a highly competitive segment in the country.

Hyundai Motor India, the country's second-largest auto manufacturer, has unveiled the compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) Venue that will become its entry SUV product to challenge the market leader Maruti Suzuki Brezza.

As with most city SUVs the Hyundai Venue is designed for the urban jungle rather than serious off-roading and will be available with front-drive only. From the side, both are quite alike. The diamond cut alloy wheels are a unique design and will help the auto stand out among the competition. Every 2020 Venue comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay built in. Quality upholstery and silver accents all around enhance its premium appeal.

In profile, the Venue, mimics numerous other latest Hyundai SUVs and has an upright stance thanks to the position of the hood and well as the rake angle of the A-pillars and C-pillars. It looks more attractive than the Creta.

Hyundai plans to roll out a host of India-specific connected features including a panic button for distress situations in Venue.

In addition the Venue can also be had with the 1.2-litre petrol (81bhp/114Nm) or the 1.4-litre diesel that produces 89bhp/219Nm. Two USB chargers, 17-inch wheels, heated seats, navigation, and automatic climate control are on the options list.

Dimensions - Major differences line in terms of dimensions.

Get ready for a Hyundai crossover SUV even more affordable than the Kona which starts at $20,000. Featuring a 3.2-inch shorter wheelbase, the Venue loses 2.7 cubic feet of interior volume to the Kona. The vehicle measures 3995 mm in length and has a width and height of 1770 mm and 1590 mm respectively. It has a wheelbase of 2,500 mm.

The Hyundai Venue will be powered by a new 1.0-litre turbo GDI Kappa petrol engine which makes 120 PS of power and 171 Nm of torque, a 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine making 83 PS and 115 Nm of torque and a 1.4-litre diesel engine making 90 PS power and 220 Nm of torque.

Hyundai estimates that the 1.6-liter engine will be good for 121 horsepower and 113 lb-ft of torque. It's the same 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine as seen on the Hyundai i20, and in the Venue, it makes an identical 83hp and 115Nm of torque. This engine will be available with a six-speed manual gearbox and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The top-end variant of the Hyundai Venue is likely to have a price overlap with the Creta though, with a price tag of about Rs. 11 lakhs for the top-end diesel/petrol-automatic. The diesel engine is a familiar 1.4-litre turbo diesel. There has been a lot of talk about its name, about the bucketful of connectivity features it will offer, but now, it's time to look at the aspect that matters the most once you get behind the wheel - the engine and gearbox. This engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
