Hyundai will soon launch the all-new Venue in the Indian market, it will be the first-ever sub-4m compact SUV by the Korean brand
Hyundai will soon launch the all-new Verna in the Indian market, and the car will directly take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV500. However, it will be a premium product, and the price of the Venue will also overlap with the lower variants of the Hyundai Verna. How do both the cars compare in the paper? Let’s have a detailed comparison and see which car offers what.
Hyundai Venue Vs Hyundai Verna: Dimensions and Design Comparison
The Hyundai Venue looks utterly different from the Verna as both the vehicles belong from different segment altogether. The Venue is an SUV while the Verna is a mid-size sedan. However, looking at them individually the Hyundai Venue looks much more modern as it gets the latest design language of the brand.
The car receives split headlamps with the indicators positioned as an extended part of the grille and the main headlamp cluster positioned at a lower point. The Venue also gets large LED DRL surrounding the main headlamp cluster that gives it a unique identity on the roads.
The Hyundai Verna is not a sub-4m vehicle and has no such restriction. It is much longer than the Venue. Even the Verna looks quite attractive in the segment, but since it has been around for a while in the market, the design does not look as fresh as the Hyundai Venue. However, both the cars have their distinctive looks in their respective segments.
Hyundai Venue Vs Hyundai Verna: Cabin and features Comparison
The Hyundai Venue offers ample cabin space, but of course, there are limitations due to the size restriction of the SUV. The Hyundai Verna has no length restriction and offers quite a good cabin space. However, comparing the Verna with competitors like Honda City and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the cabin space is a bit cramped.
Now coming to the features, there is quite a lot the Hyundai Venue offers and the Hyundai Verna does not. The Hyundai Venue will come loaded with features, and many of them will be first-in-segment features. This includes the first-in-segment BlueLink system, which uses an eSIM and keeps the Venue connected to the cloud all the time.
The Venue will become the first-ever car in the segment to offer the BlueLink feature that offers various features like live-location of the vehicle, geo-fencing, live speed, driving score, remote control activation of features like AC and ignition and even live traffic on the maps.
The Venue also offers a wireless phone charger, an air-purifier system with the AC, sunroof, climate control, 6-airbags system, cruise control, and more such features.
The Hyundai Verna, on the other hand, offers features like air-cooled leather seats, 6-airbags, cruise control, wireless phone charger, sunroof, rear AC vents and numerous such features.
