While the facelifted Vitara Brezza is a petrol-only offering, the Venue is offered with both petrol and diesel engines 

Hyundai has introduced the BS6 Venue at a starting price of Rs 6.7 lakh. It rivals the facelifted Maruti Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon along with Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport. So, let’s compare the updated SUV with its arch-rival, the Vitara Brezza. But before diving into the details, let’s take a look at the specifications of the two sub-4m SUVs.

Dimensions:

  • Both SUVs are identical in terms of length wheelbase.
  • The Vitara Brezza is wider and taller, though.
  • The Venue has an edge over the Vitara Brezza in terms of boot space.

Engines: Since the Vitara Brezza is a petrol-only offering, we will only compare the petrol engines of both sub-4m SUVs.

  • Where the Venue is available with two petrol engines, the Maruti Vitara Brezza is offered with a single engine. 
  • Hyundai’s 1.0-litre turbocharged unit is the most powerful engine of the lot. It is also the torquiest. 
  • Maruti’s 1.5-litre unit takes the second spot in terms of power and torque. 
  • A 5-speed MT is offered as standard with Vitara Brezza and the 1.2-litre Venue. Hyundai’s 1.0-litre turbo comes mated to a 6-speed MT as standard in the Venue. 
  • Where the Vitara Brezza comes with an archaic 4-speed torque converter, the 1.0-litre Venue comes with a 7-speed DCT. However, Hyundai’s 1.2-litre unit does not get the option of an automatic gearbox.

Verdict: Both SUVs are quite evenly priced. However, the Vitara Brezza is our pick as it gets more useful features than the Venue except for the rear AC vents. The Venue gets an electric sunroof, but it is not a major miss in our opinion. Both SUVs in this variant are available with dual-tone colour options as well. Where Maruti charges Rs 23,000 for the dual-tone colour, you only need to shell out Rs 15,000 in case of the Hyundai.
