Hyundai has finally taken the wraps off its first-ever sub-4m SUV, the Venue. The SUV’s launch is slated for 21 May 2019. While we are still a few weeks away from the official launch, let’s take a closer look at the upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza rival in some detailed images.
On the design front, the Venue takes inspiration from the Kona Electric. Like the latter, it gets split headlamps with indicators sitting at the edge of the bonnet, while the main lamps and LED DRLs are positioned inside the bumper. It also features Hyundai’s signature cascading grille but it looks a lot more chunky and gets an intense chrome treatment here.
The Venue comes with bumper-mounted projector headlamps. However, they get halogen lamps only instead of LEDs or xenon. The Ford EcoSport is only car in the segment that comes with an option of xenon headlamps, while all the rest offer regular halogen lighting.
Placed further below in the bumper, the Venue features first-in-segment projector fog lamps.
Seen from the side, the Venue has a boxy silhouette with flared wheel arches and a sharp shoulder line, which makes the SUV look butch and muscular.
The variant visible here gets 16-inch wheels wrapped in 215/60 section tyres.

Hyundai is yet to reveal whether the India-spec model will get the dual-tone exterior colour option that the US-spec model comes with. Given the popularity of the paint option here, we expect them to.
The boxy styling continues at the back as well. It gets squarish tail lamps which feature LED brake lights and turn indicators while the reverse lamps are mounted further below on the bumper. The car visible here is likely to be the top-spec model of the Venue, which comes with an option of the new turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine, hence the ‘Turbo’ badge.
The Venue is the first Hyundai in India to feature the name at the centre of the tailgate.
Inside, the Venue doesn’t look like any other Hyundai on sale in India. It features a floating 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system (a size larger than the Verna and Creta) flanked by the central AC vents. Also new is the steering wheel.

While the turbo petrol variant at the unveil had all-black sporty interior, other variants could come with a dual-tone theme as seen on the US-spec model.
In the Venue, the AC control unit is positioned below the infotainment screen. Centrally placed is a big circular screen that displays temperature and other information.
The Venue comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also equipped with a segment-first e-SIM tech controlling car functions like AC, door lock/unlock, engine start/stop from through a mobile app.
Hyundai Venue gets a new steering wheel. It looks similar to the one seen on the Kona Electric. It features music and telephony controls on the left spoke while the right spoke is occupied by controls for cruise control.
Gets a conventional-looking instrument cluster with central MID screen flanked by the tachometer on the left and the speedometer on the right.
Unlike other Hyundai cars which get push button on the left side of the steering, the Venue gets it on the right side. Placed alongside the push button start are controls for instrument cluster illumination, traction control and headlamp levelling, similar to what we have seen on other Hyundai cars.
The Venue comes with an electric sunroof. It is the third sub-4m to get one after the Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra XUV300. The Honda Jazz-based crossover, the WR-V, also comes with a sunroof.
The manual day/night IRVM in the Venue comes with three buttons. The first is for SOS (save our soul), which when pressed notifies emergency services with the location of your car.
The second button is for RSA (roadside assistance): it shares the location of your car with Hyundai for RSA services (3 years/ unlimited km warranty with RSA standard on the Venue). Finally, the third button is for customer support. It connects you to Hyundai customer care which can help you with finding the route for your destination, among other things. We would have appreciated it if Hyundai had offered an auto-dimming IRVM on the Venue like the Elite i20.
The seats on the Venue are covered with a combination of fabric and leatherette. Moreover, it gets adjustable headrests for both front and rear row of seats.
The Venue also comes with rear AC vents. The only other sub-4m SUV to offer these is the Tata Nexon.
Under the hood, the Venue gets a new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that makes 120PS of power and 172Nm of torque. It is available either with a 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed MT. Other engine options on offer include a 1.2-litre petrol engine that makes 83PS/115Nm with a 5-speed MT and a 1.4-litre diesel unit with 90PS of power and 220Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed MT.
While the official info is not out yet, the Venue is expected to offer over 350 litres of boot space. For instance, the EcoSport has a boot space of 352 litres. Honda WR-V, on the other hand, gets 363 litres of luggage capacity.
