This seems to be a poorly thought out marketing exercise.
  • If one is looking to buy a Venue, why would they be happy to win a Santro?
  • For the person who wins a Santro, are they expecting them to cancel the Venue booking?
  • Why is a banking app taking car bookings?!

This is one of those "Chai packet khareedo, chammach free" type of schemes.

Thought it was a promotion for the YONO app from SBI. If it were a promotional from Hyundai, they would've done through all other booking channels, isn't it!

Off topic: Actually, SBI has been trying quite hard to increase it's app user base. Looks like not many are taking to it, perhaps based on experience with their earlier app.

We ended up "parallel parking" in front of the Jalesh Karkinka. I don't know how the captain managed to fit it in that gap. It was very tight. When you next have a tough time parking your car, think of this:
It's a very difficult manoeuvre. However these passenger ships have 2 engines/propellors and a bow thruster. That makes it relatively easy to park. Try doing it with a Single engine/propellor ship without a bow thruster and it's not so easy.

So, the difference between Manual and Automatic is 55k, but the variant is different. We have to see the difference between SX (o) and SX+. If we factor into the safety features missing in SX+, then the price difference may go upwards of 1 lakh.

Wish, they had priced (If these prices are genuine) below 10 lakhs, since the prices seems to be on the borderline.

If these prices are dealer booking prices then add multiple taxes to it. That ways, the prices are nowhere around 10 or even 11L. It'll be over 11L ex-showroom. I had been in a similar situation when Creta was launched in 2015. I was given a dealer price which was about 2.5L less than the original price. I really hope that these are the actual prices, but I have genuine doubts.

Default Hyundai Venue : Official Preview

If these prices are including GST, then add approximately 24% for on road price in Bangalore. And If the Car is priced less than 10 lakhs, ex showroom, then add 20% for on road price in Bangalore.

If this is the true pricing , the Top end Diesel should have been priced at 9.90 ex showroom. Maybe we should never expect a 'Killer' price tag from Hyundai.

That's the OTR for Brezza. Seems like Hyundai continues to adapt a strategy to remain premium. Which isn't bad considering that Creta is such a success and this might just work out for the Venue as well.

I guess these are the ex-showroom prices and not OTR. Vitara Brezza Zdi+ is close to 12 lakhs OTR in Mumbai

Default re: Hyundai Venue : Official Preview. EDIT: Launched @ 6.5 lakhs

Had received a call from my dealer that around 5 cars have reached their stockyard and he asked me to check them out for color & variant finalization. So after two days, I got time today to check out the Venue.

It's definitely a compact SUV slightly less tall than the Ecosport (which I own) and as space wise its similar to the Brezza. The interior fit & finish is typical Hyundai (as in it's good). The ergonomics are also pretty good. They had only SX+ DCT & SX(O) variants. Lower variants were not in their initial lot.

The SX+ does have all the features as mentioned in the variant list posted before. The screen sizes are all the same in both the manual & automatic variants. The alloys look really good.

Colors present in the stock were White, Silver, Denim Blue with White roof - dual tone and Red. The blue is almost the same as the Baleno blue. The Silver color goes well with the front silver skid plate and the Red looks nice & bright.
The guy there said the DCT drives well and its a breeze in the city traffic. I was not allowed to take pictures or drive the car. Apart from that the car definitely is a looker and well proportioned.

I asked my sales guy about the Remote Engine + AC Ventilation option as mentioned in the leaked variant list. He says if the car has bluelink then all features will work. When I pointed out that its technically not possible in a manual to remote start, he replied that it will work when the car is in neutral in manual and P in automatic as per his training. I am kind of skeptical on the manual, if anyone else has knowledge on this please enlighten.

I think it certainly is possible if the company intends on doing that. Basically, all they need to do is bypass the neutral safety switch. The remote starter thingy would mimic the turning ignition on with the key.

Now it might seem unsafe as the car might leap and stall if started in gear but Hyundai can simply put in a sensor that let's the remote switch work only in case the gearstick is in neutral and the handbrake is engaged to work as a failsafe.

But I feel the SA must have been ill informed in some way. I doubt hyundai would waste resources in remote starting a manual car. Plus, it was mentioned in the highlights brochure too during the car reveal that only DCT version supports this. They would've certainly advertised it if the manual was compatible too. (though I hope the SA is correct )

Thanks for sharing, this is very helpful for prospective buyers. I have a couple of questions -
- DCT variant has 2 airbags, right? Not 4 or 6?
- Is the IRVM manual in both the variants? No auto-dimming?
