Both the Hyundai cars are powered by the same set of petrol and diesel engines

Hyundai recently launched the new i20 at an introductory price of Rs 6.80 lakh (ex-showroom India). At this price point, it not only takes on the likes of the premium hatchbacks like Maruti Baleno and Tata Altroz but also rivals sub-4m SUVs like its sibling, the Venue. So if you are in the market to buy a premium compact of Hyundai-make with no specific body type in mind, you might find it hard to choose between the i20 and the Venue. Here is a detailed comparison to help you decide which of the two Hyundai cars offer better value at similar prices.

Let’s start with the dimensions.

Width

1775mm

1770mm

Height

1505mm

1605mm

Wheelbase

2580mm

2500mm

  • Both the cars are identical in length but the i20 has a longer wheelbase.

  • In terms of height, the Venue being an SUV takes the lead while the i20 is wider.

  • The Venue’s extra height should result in more headroom for the occupants while the i20 being the wider car should be more comfortable in seating three at the back.  

Engines: Both the cars are offered with the same set of petrol and diesel engines.

  • Although both cars are powered by the same set of engines, there are some minor differences between the two.

  • The 120’s 1.2-litre petrol engine makes 5PS more here when paired to a CVT. The Venue’s 1.2-litre engine is offered with a 5-speed manual transmission only.

  • The 1.0-litre turbo engine has identical power and torque figures in both the cars but where the Venue gets an option of a 6MT, 6iMT (clutchless manual) and 7DCT, the i20 is available only with 6iMT and 7DCT gearbox options. 

Price Comparison: We will compare only the similarly priced variants of both the cars. The price difference will NOT be more than Rs 50,000.

Verdict: The i20 is our natural pick here. It gets more features than the Venue at an almost identical price. The base-spec Venue even misses out on basic features like rear power windows and electrically adjustable ORVMs. That said, if you have a small kid in your family, the Venue makes more sense as it gets ISOFIX child seat anchors, unlike the i20.

2020 Hyundai Venue S+ Explained: Pros, Cons and Should You Buy This 1.2-litre Petrol-only Variant?

Verdict: The Venue is on top here. The i20 does get some extra features over the Venue such as a larger touchscreen, wireless charging and LED headlamps but the premium it attracts for these features is not fair in our opinion.

Verdict: The i20 continues its winning streak with more features than the Venue despite being less pricier. But if you have a kid in your family, the Venue makes more sense as it gets ISOFIX child seat anchors, unlike the i20.

In most similarly priced comparisons between the new i20 and the Venue, the hatchback offers better value. However, it is worth noting the absence of ISOFIX child seat anchors till the very top variant of the i20 while being offered as standard in the Venue. The hatchback also doesn’t get a split-folding rear seat.
