Hyundai Venue will be a sub-Creta model that will rival the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport
The Hyundai Venue will launch on May 21 and will be positioned below the highly popular Hyundai Creta to rival the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300.
The Hyundai Venue will be the first connected offering in its segment and will come with 10 India-specific features to appeal to the local car buyers. It may be noted that the Venue, which was known simply by its codename QXI for many months, was unveiled simultaneously at this year’s New York Auto Show and on a cruise ship in India.
A new report claims that the most expensive variant of the Hyundai Venue would cost Rs 10.65 lakh (ex-showroom). The model in question here is the 1.0-litre GDI turbo-petrol equipped SX+ automatic variant that will be kitted out with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
The top-spec diesel variant of the Hyundai Venue, which will be the 1.4 SX (O), will cost Rs 10.42 lakh and will be available only with a 6-speed manual transmission. While the turbo-petrol motor will offer a maximum power of 120 PS and a peak torque of 175 Nm, the diesel motor will output 90 PS and 224 Nm. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor will reportedly cost Rs 10.09 lakh (ex-showroom) in the SX(O) trim.
The Hyundai Venue will be also available with a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine whose pricing is yet to come to light. It will come equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and should be the most affordable model on offer.
The more affordable petrol variant of the Hyundai Venue will offer a maximum power of 88 PS and a peak torque of 90 Nm. In all likelihood, the base petrol motor will help the company hold a pricing advantage over the Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300.
