Here we have the updated Hyundai Venue. In a competitive automobile market, new cars are launched very frequently. But these car companies know which car segment to launch at what time. This is the sub-4-meter SUV era, most people love this segment. Hyundai says this segment accounts for 47 per cent of all SUV sales and is set to surpass 50 per cent in a year or two. We will give you a detailed review of the new updated Hyundai Venue.

You see right then and there the popularity of these segments. But you might think Hyundai already has Creta, yes Hyundai Creta falls in this segment but is not a sub-4-meter SUV. Hence Hyundai has launched Venue, which competes with sub-4-meter SUVs like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300 and Tata Nexon.

What makes Hyundai Venue Stand out?

Yes, it is yet another sub-4-meter SUV, What makes it different? First off the position of headlamps was inspired by Tata Harrier. Also, the Bluelink connectivity makes the Biggest USP for Venue, which you might say is inspired by MG Hector voice technology I-smart. But my favourite is the 1-litre Turbo petrol engine with Direct Fuel injection and DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission), all for the first time. This engine performs well.

Interior of Hyundai Venue

Talking about the interior, the venue is a small car so you can immediately notice it. The venue seats are comfy but not large enough for big passengers, also in the 2nd row 3 adults would not fit comfortably, it feels smaller than Vitara Brezza. There is decent leg and headroom for the rear passengers, with AC vents. Every door gets a pocket for a 1-litre bottle. The boot space is 350 litres.

The material used in the interior is of good quality and does not feel like cheap plastic. The metal finish plastic gives it a good look. The top-end model of Venue gets an 8-inch floating touchscreen, with a smooth and effective touch quality. It also gets a wireless charger for your smartphones, right under the Climate control, cruise control, Bluelink, and push-button start stops. The 6 airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat mounts are standard.

Bluelink connectivity will have Safety, Security, Remote, VRM (vehicle relation management), LBS (location-based services), Alerts Services and Voice Recognition Services. An inbuilt Vodafone-idea sim in the vehicle will be used for connectivity, with a free subscription for the first 3 years. The shortcut buttons for Bluelink are given in the rearview mirror, which might be inconvenient because you might press the buttons accidentally.

You can access Bluelink via your smartphone Bluelink app, which will help you locate your car with distance from you to your car. It will also help you start and stop your car, you can also turn on the AC or the heater with the temperature and time. The only small problem is sometimes, it takes time for the message to be sent to the car, due to the server.

Exterior of Hyundai Venue

The exterior of this car looks muscular and sexy, there is plenty of sculpting in the metal, which makes the car look robust. The Front is the new Sportiness design language, with slim lighting (including turn signals) elements and an extra wide grille. As I have mentioned earlier the headlamps are inspired by Tata Harrier.

The DRLs are squared around the headlamps. You get a connecting Taillamp in the rear, which enhances the look of the Hyundai Venue from the back. Venue has a Sunroof which is a good addition to the vehicle. Overall the fit and finish feel more high-end than this segment is used to. The Venue gets 15-inch & 16-inch wheels.

Let’s see the Engine options

I will provide you with a detailed review of the Hyundai venue engine options and how it drives

hyundai venue engine
1.5 Diesel1.2 Kappa Petrol1 Liter Turbo
114 BHP82 BHP118 BHP
250 Nm113 Nm172 Nm

There are 3 engine options, 1.5 Diesel with 114 BHP and 250 NM of torque, which is similar to Creta. 1.2 Petrol with 82 BHP and 113 NM of torque is similar to i20. But the new engine option in Venue is 1-liter turbo Direct injection, which makes 118 BHP and 172 NM of torque. The 1 litre gets a 7-speed DCT (Dual clutch transmission) option and a Manual transmission, while the diesel and 1.2 petrol do get only a 6-speed manual transmission and no automatic transmission.

The power delivery of a diesel is linear and you also feel a turbo lag below 1800 rpm. You cannot expect a sudden burst of power if you floor it. It is more suited to the smooth drivers, who are not heavy on their foot while driving. On the other hand, the 1-litre turbo is an exciting engine to drive. It is very peppy and delivers continuous power. You get the torque at just 1500 rpm. It is more suited for sporty drivers, who love sudden bursts of power.

However, sometimes it feels that the DCT is not properly tuned with the engine because when you hit the throttle quickly the downshifts are slower. But this should not happen as DCT is the fastest gearbox in the market. Overall driving experience is good, with an easy clutch for manual transmission and lightweight steering and small size of the vehicle will help you in tight parking spots and you can easily zip the car through city streets.

Verdict

Hyundai has updated Venue and made it a bit more value-for-money vehicle. The price with the features alone would make buyers want to buy the car. And with the 1-litre Direct injection turbo engine is an add-on. Also, the feature of SOS, roadside assistance with a click button is great for the car at this price. Bluelink features are also great, but they require good connectivity. So according to me, you buy a car for the daily commute and choose the variant according to your needs. Hope my detailed review of the Hyundai Venue has helped you in making the right choice.
