This is the Sports version of the iMT. The SX iMT does not get the red highlights and red stitching on the steering wheel.

Was referring just to the Flat bottom wheel and got confused because I have seen a D cut steering without red stitching and that was the non-sport variant of SX+DCT. Sport variants get red accents, slightly different seat upholstery with red stitches and a few other red thrown here and there while the only normal variant with D cut steering wheel(SX+DCT) gets the silver stitches and silver knob outlines.
There is no difference in features on offer between the normal variant and Sport variant apart from overuse of paint here and there(read black roof, red caliper etc.). Rest of the car remains the same.

Missed this one. This has happened in my Venue as well as most of the cars I owned in the past with projector setup. Friends Ecosport, my Ninja 300, R3, Baleno RS and a few friends car’s too fogs up. I am not sure if this is a problem, have seen a few guys getting it replaced under warranty just for the fog to make a return later. Remember Mercedes telling a friend of mine that this happens because of the cooling vents for the projectors and would go off on their own. Though we never saw any vents, we learned to live with it as it would disappear once the damp conditions are lost. Might be good to speak with the service advisor to know his view on them. This is common as far as I have seen.

I think what he was trying to point out was that your initial post about the D cut steering being present in SX variant is not right.

This new steering wheel is only in the SX+ DCT, Sport trim (SX and SXO) and SXO. That is the SX iMT and SX MT don't get it.

You need to go up to the SX based Sport trim to get this steering wheel with iMT and MT.

That means that there is a difference between Sport and the normal variant.

Thanks for pointing this out. My apologies for the confusion to the first reply. The confusion came from the SX+DCT and SX(O) non-sport variants which gets the D-Cut wheel with silver accents.

I may be one of the minority, but i find this D-Cut steering confused and gawky to look at. I mean I have not used it nor I have seen it personally, but what is the whole idea of cluttering the lower portion of steering. During driving on ghats, whole rim of steering is used repeatedly to turn it. Does this new shape of steering obstructs its seamless handling, only a review can tell.

"Neither here nor there" sums up the iMT (available in the SX trim only) precisely, as mentioned only a hard boiled nut would go for this over the DCT in S trim at a premium of Rs 25k.

The intensity is high in the headlights, not much in the turn indicators though.

I have the same issue after its driven in a bit of rain or there's humidity. It's not collecting water, and it looks like its just condensation on the inside of the unit. My understanding is that there are vents which allow the condensation to evaporate, and that could also be the reason why the condensation is happening. In my case, its not water buildup, more like mild fogging. I could be wrong about whether this should/shouldn't happen at all. Do update on the issue if/when you resolve it.

Just found the note regarding condensation buildup in the PDF version of the Venue's User Manual. Hope this helps anyone who has an issue with this.

Team,
Rat chewed up my Venue petrol fuel hose, and i have searched for a fix (being lock down and spare not available) but not able to find one.

I'm stuck in my native, 360 kms from Chennai, and i ordered the fuel hose line before 45 days and it was not delivered until last week.

Fed-up after the waiting time, I searched internet and found few fixes for various vehicles, and i was not convinced until i found the below...

Couple of you-tube Videos showing how this is done,




*Used 8mm Pneumatic straight hose line (Easy to find in any hardware shop, also for reference i have provided amazon image)

I have attached the before and after picture for your reference, this might be a quick fix i thought.

Then came a surprise, I was worried whether this would be a permanent fix and afraid of leakage in the future, i took the vehicle to authorized service center and the service manager (Someone I know, so he suggested to keep, else they might have recommended replacing it) mentioned as this is a total fix and you don't need to replace the fuel hose line anymore!

Your suggestions? My 2nd service is due on November 2020 and I'm planning to change the hose by then, but experts are saying no need as this is kind of factory fix!

IMHO this is a common problem among the Hyundai vehicles. I have the same issue in my 7 year old grand i10. The issue crops only after driving for long hours in the rain or when the car is parked in a hill station where the ambient temperature is on the lower side. During the initial days of my ownership, other grand i10 owners have reported the same on team Bhp and it was told to replace the headlight assembly under warranty. This usually solves the problem for sometime only to return again. I have seen many elite i20s with the same problem. I think it should not cause major issues. You can ask the Hyundai ASS once regarding the same but I doubt thru will come up with any useful fix.

+1.
To me the D-cut steering wheel is weird & hideous.
Never liked it when it was first seen on the new Creta. Don't like it now either on the Venue.
The regular steering wheel on the Venue is much better IMO.
Better in look, feel & touch. Can confirm because I saw & touched them back to back on a Sport variant (which was in the parking area) and my SX variant when I visited the showroom for some work last week.

Regarding the fogging issue, although I have driven for 1-2 hours in continuous rain (only for couple of days though), I have not seen them yet on my car. However, will surely be looking for it once such conditions are encountered again, and this time I'll be more keen on finding the issue, if it exists even a bit.

I shall too check this on my friend’s car, and confirm. That beep is really annoying to say the least.
I was able to do it on my car (SX variant, not SX(O)) by long pressing the lock+unlock buttons on the keyfob.
Don't know if it is different on the SX(O) though.
However, I again enabled it, assuming that the alarm system gets disabled when I disable the beep, I could be wrong here in my assumptions.
The beep is really loud & irritating, but I have learnt to make peace with it.

Apologies for the back to back posts.
