Default Re: Hyundai Venue : Official Review

I recently happened to check Venue and Creta back to back. Noted the following, which was not mentioned in any reviews
  • I found visibility from Venue's driver seat greatly limited by the high dash, even when I raised the seat to scratch the roof.
  • The headroom is limited, inspite of having a tall stance.

Compared to Venue, Creta seem to be a far better place on both the above aspects, despite looking similar from outside. Thoughts?

Sir, you are comparing two different segment of cars. Venue is a Sub-compact SUV (under 4 metres), whereas the Creta is Compact SUV measuring more in all the dimensions compared to the Venue(Length, Width & Height).

Well,that is sound reasoning in theory. Venue has height of 1605mm,and creta is at 1620mm. That is not substantial to cause the issue I faced. Secondly, the need is for a reasonably (>110bhp) powered automatic uv, that that can do both city and highway duty, which will replace my wife's Verna Automatic. Segments are irrelevant for us, as all we nead to seat 4 in comfort.

The frontal visibility in venue is worse than the D segment sedan I drive and I am 5.8. If this is how I fee I wonder what could be the case with shorter drivers. Hence the post, requesting first hand experience from distinguished members.

Gave my Venue for second service last week, total cost was 5099.

Kun Arumbakkam

Positives
- Very professional staffs (To an extent, will come to this later) headed by manager Praveen, always willing to support.
- There was a noticeable difference in the way my car drives post service. Didnít get an opportunity to drive for longer duration.

Negatives

- Too much of reminders for second service. They started when the car was around 8500 kms. In a week, I will get atleast 4 calls, at times in a day I will get 2 calls from different individuals, very irritating. I eventually gave the car when the ODO was 9500. Imagine the number of calls I would have got.
- Pre delivery quality, if any, didnít do their job efficiently. The car had gone for a wash and cleaning. When I went there, bird droplets which was there when I gave the car for service was still there
- Trip meter issue is still pending, to their credit they did all that is possible and claimed thatís how it is in Venue. Irony is Hyundai factory is too claiming so. I am not ready trust it, as logically it canít be so. As the issue is not alarming, I lost interest is following up on this.

In a nutshell, I would rate them 7/10. Surely, there are areas to improve, but the intent is there to deliver good service

Before I drove the 1.0 turbo, the sales advisor mistakenly brought the diesel 1.5 venue which I drove for a short distance.
The engine clutter and vibrations were next to nil in the diesel while they were very well felt in cabin in the petrol. The diesel felt very refined which confused both me and the sales advisor If it was the petrol one while it was exactly opposite in the turbo petrol.
Has anyone else felt the same about the NVH in the 1.0 turbo petrol?
We had the same 2010 petrol i20. Now we have replaced it with the Venue 1.0 turbo petrol manual. And yes, there are some clutters at low rpm levels. Mind you, it is a 3 cylinder engine. You really have to work the gears at lower rpms. But trust me, it's the Turbo petrol manual that you want. The engine is very punchy and sufficient for the highway runs. Also you don't have to worry as it's really refined at higher gears. When compared to the i20 we had the Venue feels so much more confident and punchy out on the highway. It handles pretty well too.

Hi, how do you feel the change from a low-slung premium hatch to a high rise crossover(a bit cramped though). By cramped I mean is that the rear space, especially the legroom is considerably less compared to the i20. Do you find it as a major drawback? I am 6 footer, and somehow I feel the Venue to be a little cramped compared to the i20 ( in all aspects). Generally Hyundai's packaging is fab, but here they have let down a bit. Even the Maruti Brezza feels spacious compared to the Venue.
I am planning to upgrade to either the New i20 or the upcoming Kia Sonet in coming future (let's see when that happens); hence, would love to hear your take on this switch.

Let me clear some things first. I'm still a Medical student and it's my father's car. Now my father has plans to buy a bigger premium SUV in the future, so the Venue was bought in the first place as a second car according to me.
Now I haven't driven both the cars extensively, but by my considerable experience, you are right. The Venue feels and is a bit cramped. The i20 feels spacious for a hatchback and the Venue is a small crossover, so they are kinda close on the spectrum. During long journeys Venue is just for four people. The fifth person will find it a bit uncomfortable. But where the Venue scores when compared to the i20 is it's performance and handling characteristics. High speed stability and steering response wasn't really a thing for the i20. We'll have to wait and see how the next gen i20 will fare. Won't the Kia Sonet be essentially a Kia Venue? So to sum up, all my dad wanted was a parallel replacement for the i20 with SUV feel and he got one. But for you, might I suggest the upcoming Honda City. I think it will be an awesome buy. It's a spacious sedan and the sweet VTEC engine is worth everything.
Ps: The first car I suggested my dad was the City. But he isn't a big fan of sedans.

Hey, thanks for your reply. Well, I am looking at the replacement of my Maruti Swift & hence considering a premium hatch or a sub-compact SUV. So the jump I am looking at is marginal & especially in sub 4 metres cars. I already own a Hyundai Creta and hence donít need a bigger car.
Also, I am not a quite fan of sedans. Itís either hatches or the SUVs.
