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

I saw a venue in flesh for the first time yesterday on road, while returning from office and it was a good reference to the dimensions of Venue, crawling between countless other cars during peak evening Gurgaon traffic.

Now, I had made that impression that the car is small - Grand I10 type. However, it didn't look like that. There is a slight tapering of body from rear bumper towards the roof, which do give an ever so slight (but untrue, IMO) impression of car being narrow. There were many New Dzires, Ecosports too in the traffic, and the dimensions of Venue were not too different.

I am yet to experience the interiors in person, but looks like interior packaging would be better than Ecosport (my current favourite). Ecosport interior space is hampered by the Dashboard that is too big and long (I mean extending too much from the windshield).

As a city car, Venue seems as good as an Ecosport - dimension wise. In fact, side profile is by far the best in the segment: a Creta with much better alloys and proportionate height to go with sub-4m dimensions.

I'm still sold to Verna however For nearly the same price (SX manual variant, accounting for the regular offers), it offers much better package.

This car would be definitely suitable for you, as the Venue can comfortably accommodate up to 4 adults. I can vouch for that.

However, considering it was diesel only, I backed out (rather reluctantly - mind over heart) for 2 reasons - environmental concern and low running, like you.
Ah, the TUV300! For some reason, it’s the car that I’ll always like but will never buy. By the way, did you check out the facelifted TUV300?
And respect for prioritising environment over need! The same was what gave me that final push towards choosing the ecoboost over the 1.5L dragon engine- 15% fewer greenhouse emissions on paper(according to Ford).

You can buy insurance for a new car only after your receive the invoice for it with the engine identification number and the chassis number. So go for it then.

Here's the insurance provider thread from Team BHP.

I too got my insurance done through Policy Bazaar. Zero dep insurance quoted by the dealer was 44 k. I got zero dep plus return to invoice at 26k.

Were you able to confirm that the terms of insurance (including third party coverage Er ) is similar to what the dealer was offering?

Also what do you mean ‘return to invoice’?

I would take the 'inquiries' number reported by the company with a pinch of salt. I saw BRV and Creta over a weekend, and I got follow up calls to inquire how was my visit regarding WR-V and Venue! Both a segment lower cars that I didn't even look at.

I think dealerships mask these numbers as confirmed with customer and report them to the company, so the 'inquiries' number for newer car looks a lot rosier than it actually is.

Return to Invoice is an insurance add-on available for new cars for the first 3 years. So if the car is a total loss, the owner gets the total invoice amount of the car (ex-showroom price) instead of the IDV (which is always lower than ex-showroom price)

Guys, I believe, the review might take some time.
And I would be glad to wait for the same.
The reasons, I assume is, 3 power trains, 3 Manual Transmissions, 1 DCT, feature distribution etc...

But I would still ask them to release parts of review like driving experience, niggles, as a teaser kind of post..!!!

Looking at the SX# AT variant, apart from the missing equipment and lack of space that we listed down as weaknesses, in the driving department, the only weakness seems to be the lag lower down.

Several early owners (congratulations!) who have been driving the 1.0 DCT have said that you learn to live with the lag by remapping how your brain sends signals to your right foot. Is that right, or do we have any owners here who keep getting annoyed with the delayed downshift?

Can Hyundai potentially push an ECU update in the near future that makes the DCT downshift a little more aggressively? I don't think it would affect real-world mileage so drastically (we'd be lucky to get 9-10 kmpl in the city anyways) because the only difference is that we'd spend a couple of seconds more on the 1st or 2nd gear instead of the 3rd. We're probably burning that additional fuel trying to open the throttle in the RPM range where the engine suffers lag.

Another crazy question... is it technically possible to have an after-market re-map to make the DCT more aggressive?
