The Hyundai Venue will be launched in India on May 21 and the world premiere will take place at the New York International Auto Show
Hyundai will launch the highly anticipated Venue in India on May 21. The compact SUV will make its global debut later this month at the New York International Motor Show and the model will be unveiled in India over the same period as well. The compact SUV will play an important role for the company in the developed and emerging markets.
The site is based on the same platform as the Grand i10 hatchback and the company has made some changes to the chassis to meet stringent safety standards. The compact SUV is the production version of the Carlino concept presented at the 2018 Auto Expo and the design draws on Hyundai's new global SUVs such as Santa Fe.
The front receives Hyundai's signature grid along with dual-mounted headlamps on which LED DRL is placed on top and projector headlights are positioned underneath it while the fog lights are placed on the lower part of the bumper. The compact SUV gets black plastic lining around the body along with faux skid plates at the front and rear.
The venue receives LED taillights and the glass rear areas have a wraparound design theme with an integrated spoiler. Venue's interior design theme is different from other Hyundai models because the center console receives a tablet-type touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with circular controls for the AC.
The charging points are located below the AC controls, because the Venue receives two USB charging ports with a 12V outlet. Hyundai has given a new three-spoke steering wheel unit and the instrument panel design is simple. The compact SUV is loaded with 33 advanced features and also receives an eSIM powered by Vodafone Idea to connect the vehicle to the Internet.
In India, the site will be powered by two gasoline engines and one diesel. The compact SUV debuted the new 1.0L gasoline engine with a 100 hp and 172 Nm turbocharger while the naturally aspirated 1,4 l petrol engine produces 100 hp and 132 Nm and the 1.4 l diesel engine employs 90 hp and 220 Nm of torque. DCT will be offered on the smallest gasoline engine.
