The South Korean automaker has recently unveiled another compact SUV in the Indian market as Hyundai Venue. The all-new compact SUV will be launched in India on May 21. And the good news is that the automaker on Thursday started accepting pre-launch bookings on an amount of Rs 21,000. It is to be noted that pre-launch bookings can be done on the company's website as well as dealerships across India.
Venue, which is inspired by Hyundai’s Santa Fe and the Palisade, will be offered in India in four variants and seven exterior colour options- Denim Blue, Lava Orange and Deep Forest along with three Dual Tone options.
Hyundai will also offer the Venue with two petrol and one diesel engine options. The 1.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine generates 118bhp and 172Nm and is available with a seven-speed DCT or a six-speed manual gearbox. The other gasoline motor on offer is an Elite i20 sourced 1.2-litre mill that generates 82bhp and 115Nm. It is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The diesel version, on the other hand, gets a 1.4-litre four-cylinder CRDi unit that generates 89bhp and 220Nm. It is available with a six-speed manual gearbox only and an automatic will join the line up at a later date.
It sports a ton of features on the inside including wireless charging, air purifier, HD Display screen, eco-coating, Arkamys Sound, wheel air curtains, sunroof, cruise control, cornering lamps, cooled glove box and rear AC vents. On safety front, Hyundai Venue comes with upto six Airbags, speed sensing auto door lock, ABS, ESC/ESP, hill assist, brake assist and ISOFIX seats.
The long feature list is expected to add strength to the Venue and help it compete against the competition. In India, Hyundai Venue will compete against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Ford Ecosport and Tata Nexon.
