Hyundai placed the new Venue at such a crucial point that no other brand could compete within the first few variants. However, the top-spec models are more or less similar in pricing to Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300. The most expensive model here is XUV300 and still, they don’t offer an automatic variant for the car. Hyundai Venue is available with naturally-aspirated petrol, turbocharged petrol, and diesel engine, with the second one being the most powerful and practical option among all.
The car measures 3995mm in length, 1770mm in width and 1605mm in height. The wheelbase measures 2500mm while the ground clearance is 190mm for the car. The rivals are also limited to a sub-4m length but width and height differ a lot in all of them. Hyundai Venue comes with a radical design as the front comes with a split headlight, which is actually a segment first for the Indian market. Tata Harrier is the only car to feature the same here and soon, MG Hector will bring an even bolder face for the buyers. Hyundai Venue is yet to be launched with a diesel automatic option.
