Hyundai India only offers this option on the SX trim for petrol (1.0 Turbo) and diesel (1.4 CRDI)
Expected to make its way to the SX(O) and SX+ variants for petrol and diesel.
A premium of Rs 15,000 is likely over the top-spec variants.
The Venue is offered in a total of five variant trims and three engine options.
It rivals the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, and the Mahindra XUV300.
When Hyundai India launched the Venue compact SUV back in May this year with a price range of Rs 6.50 lakh to Rs 11.11 lakh (ex-showroom India), it was offered with a dual-tone option only in the SX variant in petrol and diesel trims. These came with a price tag of Rs 9.69 lakh (petrol) and Rs 9.93 lakh (diesel) (ex-showroom Delhi). This variant is a step below the top-spec. However, Hyundai is now planning to introduce dual-tone options for the top-spec variants as well. The variants are likely to be the SX(O) petrol and diesel, as well as the petrol-only SX+ DCT. If you’re a fan of the Venue’s design, we’ve had a glimpse at the upcoming 2020 Creta, which you can read about here.
The Venue is offered 5 variants: E, S, SX, SX(O) and SX+ with three engine options. Hyundai currently offers three dual paint options- Lava Orange, Denim Blue and Polar White. It is likely that these options as well as additonal options could come in the top-spec variants. The petrol options include a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbo-petrol, good for 120PS/172Nm, and paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT. The other petrol option is a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated unit, which makes 83PS/115Nm, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The diesel variants are powered by a 1.4-litre unit that makes 90PS/220Nm paired with a 6-speed manual.
The Hyundai Venue has been pitched as India’s first connected SUV with Hyundai Blue Link and accompanying features. Some of them include an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, six airbags, electronic stability control and hill assist.
Expect a premium of upto Rs 15,000 over the top-spec variants once the dual-tone options are introduced. With its aggressive pricing and a variety of powertrain options, the compact SUV has been the pick of the lot in the country with over 50,000 bookings from May to July. It rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, and the Mahindra XUV300.
