Designed to appeal to the taste of the Indian millennials, the Hyundai Venue is available with three different engines to choose from
So the cat is finally out of the box, after days and months of rumours and desperate wait. Hyundai India has now finally launched the much awaited Hyundai Venue SUV, if I may be as bold as to call it one, at an absolutely luring price! The Hyundai Venue price in India starts as low as INR 6.5 lakhs and you could take home the fully loaded automatic trim for a mere INR 11.11 lakhs.
Designed to offer solid road presence, refreshing driving experience and seamless connectivity with Hyundai Blue Link, the Venue is available with three engines to choose from- Kappa 1.0 Turbo GDi Petrol, 1.2 Petrol, 1.4 Diesel. The transmissions on offer include a 5MT, 6MT, and 7 DCT units. The 7-speed DCT Dual Clutch automatic box is indeed a new addition and a ‘best in the segment’ feature as well. The Hyundai Venue specifications are heartwarming indeed.
“We are extremely delighted with the Launch of Hyundai VENUE in India. VENUE will be India’s First fully Connected SUV equipped with our global Blue Link Connected Technology. The Indian market is at the center of Hyundai’s global growth plan, and the launch of VENUE will strengthen our commitment to the Indian Market and fulfill our promise of creating a happy life for our customers.” Said Mr. S S Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. “Equipped with many first and best in segment with connectivity features, Hyundai VENUE will become a personal sanctuary for their customers. We are sure Hyundai VENUE will create a new benchmark in the segment and demonstrate Hyundai’s unwavering promise of offering the highest quality and feature rich products to the customers.”
The Hyundai Venue also bears the tagline of being India’s first fully connected SUV and features Hyundai’s own ‘Hyundai Blue Link’ connectivity system . Having a Vodafone-Idea eSIM and a Cloud-based Voice Recognition platform from Global AI (Artificial Intelligence) Company – Sound Hound means that the SUV brings to India the convenience of connected mobility. The Blue Link features 33 exciting features, 10 of which have been specially made for India.
The car will be available in 4 major trims and with 3 new colours and 3 dual tone options. Hyundai Venue has been tested and evaluated in the most demanding conditions across the length and breadth of India.
The Hyundai Venue ensures supreme safety to the occupants and even meets the Pedestrian safety norm. Standard safety features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX, seatbelt reminder, rear parking sensors, speed sensing auto door lock and crash sensing auto door unlock etc.
However, safety does get super cool in the top trims with the likes of 6 Airbags in Top Variant, Hill Assist Control, Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Auto Headlamps with Escort Function, Cornering Lamps, Rear Camera with Rear Parking Sensors, Power window with Auto Up/Down etc on board
The Venue had achieved a milestone by amassing over 2000 bookings on the first day of opening the pre-bookings. Now with the prices being so competitive, the booking figures will only but shoot up!
