No doubt about it.

Saying that, they could possibly have put a little more green pigment in the mixture to actually make it close to real Forest Green.

Like the Dark metallic Turf Green of the old 2005-2006 Bolero Sportz or the 2002-2003 Dark Green Scorpios or even the Harvest Green of my Gypsy or the Henna Green of the Maruti 800,Omni and Gypsy of 2002-2003 era....

Honda had a very similar colour in the City as well, a very deep brown, and almost black and you can not make out the colour unless you take a close look. Makes me wonder, why do manufacturers resort to such deep brown or green colours that almost resemble black? Its not like there is a big fan following in India for such deep and dark colours.

It looks like a dark metallic green paint over with black clearcoat instead of the usual colourless one. Similar to the Activa where the base colour of all the metallics is silver and then coloured clearcoat is sprayed over it for each shade

Can anyone who owns Venue 1.0 Turbo Petrol Manual throw some light on real world mileage and provide some feedback on driving dynamics of 3 cylinder motor with MT?


The wait for official review is becoming very long.

Any expected timeline for the official TBHP review of Venue?

LED front, Chrome handles, shiny front grill normally looks way better the dark shades than in white and silver or grey. Yes, a 5-10% lesser darkness would have made it better. Seems it is in high demand after blue, we just heard from the dealer that only white ones are keep coming more. Waiting for the last 7 weeks to see it in person, though booked without seeing it. :-)

It's in high demand as it's the only shade in which the DCT gets the dual tone interiors, which impart a better sense of space compared to all-black.

He's not kidding. I also have a Nexon XZ+ (diesel) and that gives me 14.6 kmpl in the city T2T. My MID also shows the same. I haven't gotten the chance to take it on the highway so no comment on highway efficiency figures.

A few more pics of my Deep Forest Hyundai Venue DCT SX+

I personally loved the colour and booked this colour during launch.

I just have a question to those that have received their Venues and have been driving it for a while now - Do you use the connected car features? Does it actually help you or do you believe it is just a gimmick? Would you renew the subscription to those features when the day comes?

This was observed in my friend's Venue.
The car was having Ceat branded tyres (215 R16), but the spare tyre was Alnac 4G (195 R15) with steel rims.
Is the size difference because of having the spare as "space saver". Never seen the concept of space saver in budget segment before. Please correct me if am wrong.
Also, from vehicle production point of view, is it correct to keep 2 different branded tyres in the car.

Yes the size difference is because of 'space saver' considerations. And yes it is perfectly possible to have two different brands of tyres in the car in such scenarios.
For example, my 8 year old Yeti, when I bought it in 2011, came with OEM 215/60/16 Goodyear Assurance tyres on its 4 wheels and a Continental 195/60/16 in the boot as its space saver spare tyre.
Yes indeed the so called budget segment is also taking certain cues from the so called higher end segments in some of these aspects.
So,this is perfectly fine and you're good to go!

Hello,

Looking for few suggestions here. I drive about 1200 KM per month. I have almost finalized on Venue S which is my budget plus 2 lakhs .

On casually comparing the prices of Diesel I found the price difference in Chennai is 40000/- only.

Got confused if it will be worth buying a diesel mill because I can make it up on diesel mileage and on fuel cost.

Also won’t the resale value of Diesel cars increase once smaller engines are no longer produced.

Please help. Thanks.

The S variant has the 1.2 right? That itself is a reason enough to splurge the extra 40k for the 1.4 diesel. The 1.2 is a very sluggish engine(having driven it on the i20 and even the Grand i10), whereas the 1.4 is a very capable engine even in the Creta which is a much heavier car.

The other advantages which you will have will be an added bonus. Go for the excellent 1.4 CRDi.

Thanks AYP. The S comes both in 1.2 and 1.0 turbo.
I have decided on 1.0 Turbo. I didn’t go for 1.2 because of the same sluggish reason that my friends told me and also the mileage on Venue 1.2 is 8 KMs/L.

My other worry is will new restriction on Diesel engines affect existing cars?.
