As mentioned before, the Venue is powered by three engines. Two of them - the 1.4-litre diesel and 1.2-litre petrol motor - are borrowed from the Elite i20 and offered in the same state of tune. The diesel engine churns out 90PS of power and 220Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed manual. The 1.2-litre petrol engine produces 83PS and 115Nm and comes with a 5-speed manual as standard. The talk of the town, however, is the all-new 1.0-litre turbo-petrol Kappa T-GDI petrol motor that churns out 120PS of power and 172Nm of torque. It comes paired with a first-in-class 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Here are the ARAI fuel efficiency figures of the engines that power the new Venue:

The new Hyundai Venue edges over its rivals when it comes to features. It is the first made-in-India connected SUV and gets Hyundai’s Blue Link connected car software. Equipped with an e-SIM from Vodafone, Blue Link can be used to control various functions like remote start, climate control and location tracking, along with a host of other features. Read more about it here. The SUV also comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen display that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The top-spec variant of the Venue packs safety features such as six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability management, hill assist control, and brake assist system on the top-spec variant. Dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX, seatbelt reminder, rear parking sensors, and speed and crash sensing auto door lock/unlock are offered as standard.

Hyundai is offering the SUV in seven monotone colours and three dual-tone colour options. The colours on offer include: Star Dust, Fiery Red, Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Deep Forest, Lava Orange and Denim Blue. The dual-tone colour combinations are: blue with white roof, white with black roof and orange with black roof. The interiors are also available in three colour combinations: black single tone, denim dual tone, and khakhi dual tone. Hyundai is offering a 3-year/unlimited km warranty for the Venue along with a 3-year road-side assistance package.

With its choice of powertrain and features list, the Venue seems well prepared for a brawl with its rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and the Mahindra XUV300. Positioned below the Creta in Hyundai India’s lineup, the carmaker has high hopes for the Venue. The sub-4 metre SUV segment is one of the most competitive in the Indian automotive space and Hyundai, which already rules the compact SUV space with the Creta, is hoping to rope in sales with the Venue's competitive pricing.

Now, what’s left to see is how the Venue stacks up against its rivals in terms of real-world performance. Stay tuned to Zigwheels for the first drive review of the Venue where we find out if it lives up to all the hype.
