What is 30 degree Celsius here? Is that the outside temperature? In that case there is a UI/UX issue (to display 'high transmission temperature' next to ambient temperature) I am imagining that high temperature should be really high.

Yes, that's the outside temperature.

If I'm not mistaken, I think unplugging the horn to disable the lock/unlock sound also disables the sound of the anti-theft alarm.
I remember watching a YouTube video in which someone attempted this on a Hyundai Verna (latest one).

UX issue, without giving much thought. They should stop showing climate temp when the warning is related to another temperature. :-)

Yes, you may be right. One negative aspect will be that the sound will be disabled. But I hate that tone of door locked/unlock. Need to look at options of replacing that horn at least.

Me too. I'm looking for a way to safely disable it on my Elite i20.
It's loud and annoying especially at night when everything around is quiet.
It becomes especially loud once I park it in my garage.

My Grand i10 is fitted with the same alarm + lock/unlock system, yet it doesn't make any sound when locked/unlocked.

After seeing the latest news from GNCAP came back to this thread to check what was the platform used for venue and found this.

Hyundai's build quality is often praised a lot but does this K1 platform changes things? Are they going Maruti way? And venue by no means is a cheap car with SX DCT touching almost 14L in Bangalore

Reason I ask is, we are in process of new car shopping for few of my colleagues and were inclined towards venue for the 'perceived' safe build quality. But santro news got all of us thinking if we were being over optimistic about Hyundai

Even india built i20(For South Africa market) failed the crash test, although am not sure if it's sold here in same guise. Link (Made-in-India Hyundai i20 scores 3 stars in NCAP test (South African market))

Ok, I and my friend checked this car today as a prospective purchase for my sister's family, for city runabouts.

Observations, (both of us are tall)

- Strikingly beautiful
- One of the best designs after a long time, Hyundai in full form here

But once inside, everything changed,

- Since the design is such that of the Jeep or a boxy SUV, the upright windshield and the resulting pushed-forward dashboard cuts down a lot of unusable space which makes the whole cabin space cramped

- Cabin width, again was narrow, but front seats were an OK place to be in.

- There have been videos showing measurements using tapes on how the Venue is comparable to other cars in this segment in leg space, shoulder space etc. They measure the rear seat width, but they don't measure how much of the C pillars protrusion inside cuts down the shoulder width and where exactly it comes closer to your body, similarly for rear seat space, if the front passenger is going to pull his seat forward to accommodate the rear passenger, he is going to suffer with his head coming almost closer to the roof.

- Coming out of the rear seat was a struggle. My friend jokingly said, looks like someone has to pull us out.

This is one team-bhp review where I totally disagree with the take on the interiors, the in-cabin experience was lacklustre to put it mildly, especially from a people mover point of view.

I might still consider this car for my personal usage after diesel engine's transition to BS6, just for the magical looks with the OK front seats, but would never suggest this car to anyone who plan to use it for their families.

Hyundai's safety standards are poor, to put it mildly, in India.

Other than the front looks and great dash, can't find anything good about this car, esp at the exorbitant price point. Not sure when we will wake up to the fact that SUVs are not raised i20s and Santros. Also, many uninformed buyers treat these like SUVs - check the Cretas and Venues in the hills. Products like XUV300 are distinctly superior to Venue, IMO. XUV 300 pricing is atrocious but if Mahindra can cut it by 50k, it will be great proposition.

No offense meant for the folks who love Venue.

Now a days, its best to hold judgement on these things until a car is actually tested by GNCAP. Hopefully the Venue will be picked up soon. A similar perception exists about Maruti also. But their representative in the sub4M segment is one of the FEW cars that scored a good 4 stars in GNCAP when tested. Without substantiated data, a Nano & a Hummer should be considered equally unsafe on road now a days.

Going by the sales numbers, actually it seems the car has what majority people want the most. We might be an exception, but that doesn't make the product incorrect or overpriced. Something I have learnt over time. As long as owners are happy with their choice - the product is excellent.

As for the pricing in my point of view, except for the EcoSport, absolutely all the cars in this segment are overpriced for what they offer. The kit, quality & capability of the EcoSport justifies its asking price. All others are making money on the basis of just 1 USP each. (Connected car, Maruti brand, 5 star safety rating, highest power in segment, Honda brand) So nothing specifically wrong with the Venue on that front either.
