The Venue comes at a competitive price and gets a long list of features, but how does it compare in terms of size and powertrain options with its rivals? Let's find out.

Hyundai has launched its first sub-4m SUV, the Venue, at an introductory price of Rs 6.5 lakh (ex-showroom India). The SUV is equipped with various segment-first features and also gets a new turbocharged petrol engine coupled to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. But is it capable enough to take on well established rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon? To find out, let’s compare the specifications of these sub-4 metre SUVs.

The Venue is not the longest, widest or tallest SUV here. In fact, it is among the narrowest and is the shortest in terms of height. As far as the wheelbase is concerned, at 2500mm, it is at par with the Brezza but smaller than the EcoSport and the XUV300. So it doesn’t set any new benchmarks in terms of size.

Engines: Except for the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the other sub-4m SUVs are available with both petrol and diesel engine options.

The Venue is available with two petrol engines - a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated unit and a 1.0-litre turbocharged engine. Where the 1.2-litre unit that produces 83PS is the least powerful petrol engine in this comparison, the 1.0-litre turbocharged engine puts out 120PS, making it the second most powerful petrol SUV after the EcoSport.

Both the Nexon and the XUV300 come with 1.2-litre turbocharged engines producing 110PS of power. In terms of torque, the XUV300 takes the lead with 200Nm followed by the Venue at 172Nm. Both the EcoSport and the Nexon have an identical torque figure of 170Nm. The Venue’s 1.2-litre unit produces the least amount of torque here.

Except for the Mahindra, all SUVs here get an automatic option. The XUV300 is only available with a 6-speed manual. The Venue gets a 5-speed manual with the 1.2-litre engine whereas the 1.0-litre turbocharged unit can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch automatic. In fact, it is the only SUV here to offer a dual clutch transmission.

The Nexon is equipped with a 6-speed manual as standard but can be had with a 6-speed AMT as well. The EcoSport, on the other hand, is available with three transmission options. Where the 1.5-litre engine is available with a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed auto, the 1.0-litre turbocharged engine is only offered with a 6-speed manual.

With 90PS of power, the Venue is amongst the least powerful diesel SUVs here. The XUV300 takes the lead in this department followed by the Nexon and the EcoSport, respectively. The Mahindra is also the torquiest SUV here followed by the Nexon and the Venue, respectively. With 5Nm less torque than the Ford EcoSport, the Brezza has the least torque of all the SUVs featured here.

The Ford, Hyundai and the Mahindra can only be had with a manual gearbox. The Nexon and the Vitara Brezza are available with an auto ‘box as well. Where the Venue and the XUV300 get a 6-speed unit, the EcoSport comes with a 5-speed unit.

The Brezza can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. The Nexon, on the other hand, can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT.

Features:

The Venue is the first connected SUV to go on sale in India. It is equipped with an e-SIM that allows the user to control vehicle settings through a mobile app. The tech enables remote engine start, remote AC control, and remote door lock/unlock as well. Moreover, it also helps the user in case of an emergency by contacting emergency services and sending alerts to your emergency contacts.

Other features of the Venue that have been revealed are similar to its rivals.

Safety: The Venue and EcoSport come with up to six airbags while the Mahindra offers seven airbags. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon only get two airbags, both of which are offered as standard, as is the case with other SUVs. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and the Hyundai Venue also get rear parking sensors as standard. ISOFIX child seat anchors, however, are available as standard only on the Vitara Brezza, XUV300, Venue and the Nexon. The EcoSport only gets them on higher variants.

The XUV300 also gets some segment-first safety features, including front parking sensors and disc brakes all around.

Infotainment: All SUVs in this comparison are offered with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, they get different screen sizes. Where the Maruti and Mahindra come with 7-inch screens, the Venue and the EcoSport get 8-inch units. The Nexon gets the smallest screen of the lot at 6.5-inches. But the Nexon is the only car here to feature a music system sourced from Harman Kardon.

The XUV300 also gets multiple steering modes and heated ORVMs, features that are not available on any other car in this comparison. The Nexon gets a segment-first feature in the form of multiple driving modes. Like the XUV300, the Venue also gets an exclusive feature in the form of an air purifier, which is available only on the SX+ and SX(O) variants.

Rs 6.48 lakh to Rs 9.94 lakh

Rs 7.90 lakh to Rs 11.49 lakh

Rs 7.83 lakh to Rs 11.38 lakh

Except for the Tata Nexon, the Hyundai Venue undercuts all its rivals in terms of pricing. The Tata’s entry-level variant is priced similar to the Hyundai Venue’s E variant. However, it is over 1 lakh more affordable than the Venue’s highest variant. As far as other rivals are concerned, the Venue not only undercuts them in terms of starting price but its top-spec variant is also more affordable by upto Rs 40,000.

Diesel:

Ford EcoSport

Rs 7.75 lakh to 10.84 lakh

Rs 7.67 lakh to Rs 10.42 lakh

Rs 7.49 lakh to Rs 10.90 lakh

Rs 8.49 lakh to Rs 11.99 lakh

Rs 8.42 lakh to Rs 11.90 lakh

The starting price of the Venue diesel is pretty much at par with the Brezza and the Nexon but it undercuts the XUV300 and the Ford EcoSport by a margin of around Rs 75,000. As far as the top-spec variant is concerned, it continues to be at par with the Nexon and undercuts the XUV300 and the EcoSport by almost Rs 1 lakh. However, the top-spec Brezza is more affordable than the top-spec Venue by Rs 42,000. It must be noted that the prices of the Hyundai Venue are introductory offers and is likely to go up in a couple of months.

Hyundai will offer a choice of two petrol engines: one is a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol(83PS/115Nm) and the other a new 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged unit(120PS/170Nm). While the 1.2 engine comes paired with a 5-speed manual, the smaller turbo petrol gets a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission(Automatic).

    Hyundai might have the advantage of launching the BSVI ahead of their competitors (Assuming it will be BS VI). Overall features barring the Bluelink in Venue the rest is on par with EcoSport or XUV, not much to differentiate. The pre-booking concept is a little bizzare, while I understand the underlying marketing strategy, without knowing the price of a variant, how to go ahead and book this vehicle. Will be interesting times ahead for Auto industry with the new regulations kicking in within 9-10 months.
