Renuka Kirpalani gives us a tour of the Venue. Check from 01:16 onwards for the boot space.



Here it is (thanks to News18 Auto on Twitter):

From the video, it seems the rear legroom is lacking. The rear somehow makes me remember the Renault Kwid.

Okay, so I'm mildly pissed off at Hyundai (mildly because they did tune the 1.0 L engine to 120 PS instead of 100 PS. Thanks!). Apparently, they're giving ventilated seats a miss.

Besides, what's more concerning is that I see the dial for switching drive modes missing in the Indian variant, unlike the US variant. I hope they have the prudence to put in Sports mode in the Indian variant.

See the difference in the following images right behind the gear lever.

Indian variant -

US variant -

Also, does anyone happen to know when will Hyundai officially start the bookings through their website?

Rear legroom seems to be around i20 category. Wonder what happens to the i20 active now. The 1.2L petrol in i20 itself feels underpowered, what would it feel like in this one This is done just to keep the base model price competitive, rest neither it's frugal nor fun to drive.

Being a Hyundai and with looks similar to creta (sideview) , this will sure sell well though. I don't think the turbo charged AT would be priced below EcoSport T+ AT. Oh and the front surely looks polarizing. Width seems lesser than Nexon/Brezza. A 4 seater at best

Haha yes! I’m still a bit curious about the pictures on Page 10! It looks like the 1.0 Turbo petrol will be available in lower trims as well.

Being an i20 owner, I don’t see the same cohesiveness in design that earlier Hyundai’s had. Overall, it is a good looking car, but Hyundai could have done a better job for sure.

The engine start-stop button is on the right side, not left. As far as Hyundai’s premium cars go, the push button start-stop button is on the left hand side. Grand i10 and Xcent get it on the right hand side. Not a deal breaker, but just an observation. Rear seat space and boot space are more like i20. Interiors look smashing, especially the new steering wheel design.

Also, I find the shark fin antenna a bit out of place. Will reserve my opinion till I see the car in flesh. The rear wiper washer nozzle, finished in black is like an eye sore! Hyundai, please integrate it neatly, just like in the I20 and Creta, please?

According to PowerDrift’s Instagram page, the turbo petrol will be available with a 6-speed manual transmission as well. Enthusiasts will surely appreciate!

But what about this 1.2 petrol? It feels just about ‘adequate’ in my i20. It’s not the most fuel efficient either. I thought they’ll plonk the 1.4 litre motor! Maybe, Hyundai wants to push the sales of 1.0 Turbo only. The 1.4 L Diesel will surely appeal to the masses, offers good drivability and efficiency as well.

If Hyundai can get the pricing right, Venue could give sleepless nights to Ecosport, Nexon and XUV300.

Haven't read anywhere about the Turbo petrol available in manual transmission. Am I reading it right ? There is only mention of 1.2L as against 1.4L speculated earlier.

It's going to be interesting to see how Venue will compete with it's own sibling i20, both having same engines (1.2P, 1.4D ). I can assume Venue pricing starting from 7.5 lakhs for 1.2 P and going upto 9lakhs and pricing of 8.4-10 lakhs for diesel varients.
Highest variant of 1 lt turbocharged petrol engine could command 10.5-11 lakhs.
Interesting times!

The interior layout and quality (apparent) looks great. I’m expecting an awesome feature list as well.

Didn’t like the way it looks though. The sides (mini Creta) and rear are okay, but the front end looks WEIRD. Why can’t cars look normal anymore?

Let’s see how they price this one.

Good looking car except the hideous front grill. Looks so out of place.


Also, great to see the Turbo petrol in higher state of tune (120BHP). With DCT, this can be a fun little car.

Finally it's out.. Thank you Hyundai for the well rounded package and not disappointing in terms of equipment (except for ventilated seats &#128556
I'm putting down the money for the 1.0L DCT as soon they start accepting bookings.
Mods who have been to the launch, can you tell which color looks better in the flesh. Would be really helpful.

Translating the dimensions to meters scale, the car has a height of 1564 mm, length of 4 m, width of 1770 mm and a wheelbase of 2519 mm. This is really small. In terms of height, it will be a dwarf compared to Ecosport (around 1655 mm tall), breeza (1640 mm), XUV 300(1627 mm) etc. It is shorter than Maruti Ignis (1595 mm) even!. I think this will look like a stretched out and patted down Ignis, rather than a compact SUV, unfortunately. The massive shiny grill must be a desperate attempt to gain some more presence, being such a tiny car.

No way the Diesel top variant is going to be priced that low. SX(O) will be as loaded as XUV 3OO W8(O) and Ecosport S, both of which finish at 12 lacs ex-showroom.

Expect the Petrol SX(O) at 11-11.2 and Diesel SX(O) at 12-12.2 . The turbo top variant will be 10-15k below the diesel top end.

Look quite good to me and the front grill is the only part which looks a bit overdone. I would also hope that this is not a standard feature or there should be some way to dechrome it! Overall a great package - especially the 1L turbo engine with DCT should be a stonker in this segment.
I feel this car has good potential and will actually replace the i20 entirely. It also has the potential to hit other cars like the Ecosport, the Baleno and the Nexon too and take away their sales. Hyundai have made a smart move here and will get a bigger share of the sub 4m pie too now with this car.
