The latest SUV in the market Hyundai Venue could become a handy off-roader if we take this rendering far too seriously
None of the sub-4m compact SUVs available in the Indian market gets a 4WD system. Hyundai Venue, the latest vehicle to be launched in the segment will take on the likes of Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon. None of these vehicles can take on serious off-roading.
However, due to their muscular looks, they sure do offer a lot of road presence. Here is a rendering image that further uses that SUV image and accentuates by digitally manipulating it with modifications. There are quite several changes in the model seen here and a few additional types of equipment.
In the final form, it sure looks like a head-turner. To start with, the front stock bumper of the Hyundai Venue has been replaced with an off-road spec bumper. The aftermarket bumper also gets n integrated winch that is well-hidden. To save the vehicle from any underbody damage, it also gets a skid plate.
The fenders of the Hyundai Venue get black plastic inserts that add width to the vehicle and makes it look even more intimidating. The ground clearance also has increased and the Venue, in its off-road avatar now rides on aftermarket off-road spec rims with heavy-duty off-road spec tyres. Additional protection has been installed on the sides to keep the running board safe from any stone hit too.
There is a sleek LED stripe at the front that can prove to be extremely helpful during the night trails. While the extra number of auxiliary lamps can add extra light to the paths, the Venue also gets a roof carrier, and roof-carrier mounted tent that can be unfolded to make space for the night.
The Hyundai Venue starts at Rs 6.5 lakh, and the most expensive variant is priced at Rs 11.1 lakh, ex-showroom. The car is available in 11 variants and gets an option of three engine options. The Venue is currently the only car in the segment that comes with a choice of 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission.
