Purchased this car in July 2019 i.e. the DCT automatic 1.0 turbo petrol S model Review after 6 month use A. Hyundai india and modi hyundai never informed the consumers that DCT will overheat in bumper to bumper taffic during the pre sales and sales cycle B. Overheating is mentioned in the car owner manual which during sales cycle no one shows to the potential customer C. If you reverse and drive the car a couple of times during parking the temp will go up D. The car overheats in bumper to bumper traffic and you will have to stop the carE. If you have to drive, then you will keep switching between neutral and drive mode whenever you stop this defeating the purpose of buying an automatic F. Lost complete faith and kick my self in buying a hyundai car DO NOT BUY THE HYUNDAI VENUE DCT VERSION IF YOU HAVE TRAFFIC IN YOUR AREA
I own 1.0 litre turbo petrol top variant with a sun roof.It’s a 2019 model.Have driven around 50000 km.Venue stands true to it’s name.Yes it goes places with assuring comfort and elegance.The dct engine proves substantially responsive while the build quality together with electronics add apt safety features.Bought for 12.90 lakhs inr, It has proven a good investment considering the fine driving experience equally in urban, Hilly and remote locations.The rivals like kia sonnet or tata nexon or maruti brezza fall short of many sensible yet economic aspects when simply compared with the venue.For a team of 4-5 riders, This venue is a surprising compact luxury.
Value for money with excellent performance. Highway mileage is very negotiable, you can extract 18-20 kmpl on highways at speed of 80-100 kmph in 6th gear.Even while throttling it hard at 140 kmph you get mileage of about 14-15 kmpl.City mileage depends on traffic conditions and getting 13-15 kmpl is not a big deal.Drivability is another plus factor with this car, it gives you a good driving experience. (I have driven it for about 5400 km in just 2 months which includes 2 trips from Aligarh to Sonbhadra in UP)P.S - highway mileage calculated thrice on 320 km long Lko-Agra expressway, also regularly cross checked on NH 34 from Aligarh to Khurja.
Venue is one of my hard searched and engineered car after long list. Driven 7k kms, v good mileage, no maintenance car, good safety and family car. Natural engine at its best. Did top speed 140kms. However, 110kms is v comfortable. The heavy metal body and steering feels safe. Majorly, Brake Assist is doing excellent job to make the car stand still for panic braking in the traffic. I did tried and it is working excellent on safety aspect. Remember to wear seat belts must for driver and front passenger. Kudos! Check my reviews in Car Wale. Thanks :-)
