Hyundai has tried to increase the appeal of the underpowered Venue with this new variant

The Hyundai Venue has been around for more than a year now and was recently updated with a segment-first clutchless manual transmission as well as a new variant. It is now available in a total of six variants with three engine options: 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel. The S+ variant was recently added to the lineup, but does it add enough features to make the 1.2-litre petrol engine an attractive option?

Before we dive into the variants, here’s a quick look at the powertrain specifications of the Hyundai Venue:


1.0-litre Turbo-petrol

1.2-litre Petrol

1.5-litre Diesel










6-speed MT/ 6-speed iMT/ 7-speed DCT

5-speed MT

6-speed MT

Variants on Offer

We have analysed all six variants and here is how each one stands out:

E - Too bare to buy. (Click here to read our detailed analysis of the E variant)

S - The actual entry variant. (Click here to read our bang-for-buck analysis of the S variant)

S+ - Only if you want to stick to the more affordable petrol option. Complete analysis below.

Let’s see what the S+ variant has to offer.

The new S+ variant makes the 1.2-litre petrol engine a more attractive package while still being cheaper than the turbo-petrol S variant. It looks more premium than the previous variants with the projector headlamps and LED DRLs but still runs on the noticeably lower-specced 15-inch wheels. The cabin looks far better with the addition of the 8.0-inch touchscreen display on the dashboard, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and auto AC. It also gets useful features like a rear parking camera, power-folding ORVMs, and height-adjustable driver’s seat. 

The S+ is the best option for those who want the Hyundai Venue while keeping a check on their wallets. It’s also for those who don’t mind living with the less powerful 83PS petrol engine and 5-speed manual transmission.

Features Explained

Auto AC: It manages the amount of cooling to maintain the desired temperature you’ve selected, much like ACs at home.

Driver rearview monitor: Using the rear camera, it allows you to see what’s behind even when driving forward, not just reversing.

Power-folding ORVMs: The outside rearview mirrors now open/close electrically. It is handy to open/close both sides at the same time.
