Hyundai is set to officially open bookings for it’s first-ever sub-4 metre SUV, the Venue, on May 2. While dealers have already begun accepting unofficial bookings for a token amount of up to Rs 21,000, potential customers will be able to book the Venue via Hyundai’s website once official bookings begin. Those who book their cars online can collect it from their preferred dealership as well. The Hyundai Venue is set to be launched on May 21 and will enter the ring against the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra XUV300, among others.

There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the Venue for a number of reasons. The key one is the connected car features it will be offered with. Set to become the first made-in-India connected SUV, the Hyundai Venue has 33 tricks up its sleeve, out of which ten are India-specific. Equipped with a Vodafone Idea SIM, the connected car features will allow users to remotely access various functions of the car, thereby enhancing safety and convenience while providing a whole host of vehicle management services. These include auto crash notification and assistance, stolen vehicle tracking, remote climate control with engine start/stop and geofencing. At the centre of all these features is an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and ‘SOS’, ‘RSA’ and ‘Blue Link’ emergency buttons on the inside rearview mirror (IRVM).

The second reason for the buzz around the Venue is its new powertrain option. The baby Creta is set to debut Hyundai’s new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine as well as an in-house developed 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT). The new motor makes an impressive 120PS of power and 172Nm of torque and can also be had with a 6-speed manual. Other engine options available in the Venue are the Elite i20’s 1.2-litre petrol unit that produces 83PS of power and 115Nm of torque, and the 1.4-litre diesel unit with 90PS and 220Nm on tap. These engine options will only be offered with a manual transmission.

The Venue is 3995mm long, 1770mm wide and 1590mm tall. The wheelbase measures in at 2500mm, which is identical to the Vitara Brezza. But the Hyundai is 20mm narrower and 50mm shorter than the Maruti. This could result in less shoulder room for second row passengers. Nevertheless, the Venue is a good looking SUV and gets features like a dark chrome Hyundai family grille, projector headlamps, LED DRLs, projector fog lamps, LED tail lamps, 16-inch dual tone alloy wheels and a shark fin antenna.

The Venue is shaping up to be a well-rounded SUV that can challenge the Vitara Brezza’s dominance in the country. We expect it to be priced between Rs 7.2 lakh to Rs 12 lakh. Will you go ahead and book the Venue on May 2? Or are you waiting to test drive the SUV first? Let us know in the comments below
