Hyundai i20 Vs Hyundai Venue – Specification Comparison


The i20 and Venue have both been one of the best-selling cars in their respective segments, and the differences between the two cars have now been reduced

Hyundai finally launched the new-gen version i20 in the Indian market on November 5, 2020, and just like the outgoing model, the third-gen version of the premium hatch is also expected to go on to become one of the best-selling cars in the segment. Not only will the i20 challenge cars in its segment, but its extensive feature list and powertrain options could make life difficult for cars in a segment above as well.

With the increase in i20’s price as compared to the outgoing model, it now falls near the sub-4m SUV territory – a space that has gained a lot of popularity in recent times. The most natural cross-segment alternative to the new i20 will certainly be the Venue. While the Venue and i20 are two very different cars, there’s much more common between them than meets the eye.

Here is a detailed cross-segment specifications comparison between the new-gen Hyundai i20 and the Hyundai Venue, take a read to know which one is the right choice for you –

As of now, Hyundai retails the Venue at a starting price of Rs 6.75 lakh, going all the way up to Rs 11.65 lakh for the top-end variant. On the other hand, the pricing for the new-gen i20 starts from Rs 6.80 lakh onwards, going up to Rs 11.18 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom). This means that the hatchback’s entry-level is actually more expensive than the sub-4m SUV, while the Venue’s top-end variant still costs more.

Comparison Verdict

While the previous-gen i20 and Venue were way too different, it seems like Hyundai has bridged the gap between the two cars with the introduction of the new-gen model of the premium hatch. The equipment list, the safety tech, as well as the powertrains, all are almost same.

The pricing of the two cars is also very similar now, however, the biggest difference is the fact that the Venue is a high-riding vehicle and will give you a more commanding riding position as compared to the comparatively low-slung i20. It should be noted that the dimensions of the two Hyundai cars are also very similar, and the choice between the two boils down to your personal preference.
