Went to see the car at showroom. They had a grey one.

As usual interior fit and finish is good like i20. Dashboard is considerably short than i20, done probably to increase boot space. Rear legroom is also similar to i20.

A few pictures:

There's no hiding the sub-4 meter restrictive design.

The grill and the headlight positioning looks to be wanting in better design and integration. Headlamps specifically looks out of position and does not blend well to the overall design.

Boot is a little larger than i20. Sales person told me it is 350 litres. Seems true.

Hyundai Verna 1.6 SX+ petrol AT costs 11.6 Lakhs. How would they justify Venue 1 SX+ AT at 12 Lakhs?

Hi
Some more thoughts -
  • Air Purifier is not electronic
In comparison with XUV 300 Top end, which has almost nailed the segment with its features (minus the automatic option)
  • 7 Air bags
  • Dual Zone FATC
  • Auto Dimming IRVM
  • Heated mirrors
  • Auto Headlamps
  • Rain sensing wipers
  • Sunroof
  • Leatherette Seats
  • Front parking sensor (kind of a must on City roads like Mumbai)
  • Rear parking sensor
  • TPMS
  • All 4 disc brakes
  • 3-point Seatbelt for Middle Seat too
  • Cruise Control
Looks like XUV300 automatic will be a better bet

  • No Auto Top variant - It seems Vehicle brands don't seem to care anything about the consumer who is willing to pay for the comfort and safety he seeks. As long as there is demand on the cars , Keep selling
  • Two Reverse sensors only - seriously Hyundai? This is a 12 lac + CSUV
  • No rear defogger and rear wiper + washer - What a serious miss
  • Side & Curtain airbags - An automatic car user pays more than the top end and misses this key safety requirements
  • No Auto IRVM - I use a elite i20 2014 Asta, this has Auto IRVM and then Hyundai conveniently places and omits this key addin as per their whims and fancies
Yes, the cost increases due to this features but by how much ? Come on Hyundai, let the consumer choose his options and pay for it. But atleast offer this choices?

Reasonable considering the competition or the lack of it.(features wise)

Around 5 years back an Ecosport top spec diesel was 12 L(A relative bought it), it had a waiting period of 6 months even with that pricing. Now the Ecosport S is close to 15L in Bangalore. It looks like 12 L is a comfortable price prospective customers are willing to pay if reasonably equipped - even if it's not a top spec model.

We bought a Verna 1.6 petrol SX manual for a friend a year ago, it was a bit more than 11L on road, right now it costs 1L more at 12L +. The top spec Verna petrol automatic is 17L+, venue looks VFM!!

PS: You can buy the same titanium variant ecosport for around the same price as in 2014, super value considering inflation.

The rear end resembling the Grand i10 is a big turn off.. Also how will this pit against the i20 active, which sells at about 1 lakh premium vs the i20 ? Does feel like a half hearted attempt with the competition offering a lot more.. Per me the Nexon with the diesel @108HP, 260NM offers a lot more..

I'd like to disagree on this. The back looks more similar to the VW polo. The whole upright stance, creases, bumper design and the square rear lights have much more prominent resemblance to the polo instead. Drawing similarity with the i10 seems like a stretch

Thanks for the photo. Actually, I do think there is quite a bit of similarity between the i10 and the Venue. Perhaps, the photo angle makes a difference wrt to the upright stance, but the overall shape makes them all look very similar.

It does look a lot like a cross between the polo and the i10 to me. Iím really not happy with the way the venue looks. Hyundai engineers could have done a lot better in terms of design. It simply doesnít pull that split-headlight look as casually as the Harrier does.

When compared to Nexon, they do offer more additional features with better quality fit and finish. Sureshot Winner even if it is not priced appropriately.

My dealer called today and confirmed me that my pre-order of the car has arrived and if I want I can take delivery tomorrow on the launch day itself. But I asked him to give me the price list first. He said it will be available tomorrow at 12pm. The issue I'm worried is dealers charge extra such as compulsory accessories or handling charge or logistic charges.

But Nexon Automatic are better equipped, and they have petrol and diesel option for AT.

Wow, your dealer is quick!

I think the bigger issue here is getting the car without a test drive than extra charges Would love to get your opinion if you get a chance to drive it. Which variant have you booked, by the way?

Also do we know when the media drives are scheduled?

Saw a Venue today on side of the road but was unable to click pictures (as soon as I took out my phone, the driver drove off )

Must say, it looks really well proportioned (xuv300) and has good road presence. The front grill isn't as in-your-face as it seems in the pictures. And the alloys are unique and eye-catching.
