Hyundai Venue Official Review

Finally Hyundai is also a competitor of Sub Compact SUV Segment with Venue. Although late to the party as Maruti Brezza ruling the roads followed next by Mahindra XUV300, Ford Ecosport. Even crossover like Tata Nexon, Honda WRV are there for more than few years.

But as the name of Venue has a tag name of Hyundai to it, the car definitely adds charm to it. Here are details on Hyundai Venue


Engine Performance: 1.0 GDI (Gasoline DIrect Injection) with 3 cylinder, 120 PS Power, 175 NM Torque is what the key highlight of this SUV. However, adding to charm is 7 Speed Dual Dry Clutch Automatic Transmission. 

Venue feels very smooth and refined with absolute no jerks when the gear shifts are changed by the unit. Although it upshifts the gear at around 2000 rpm and below which is a definite turbo lag. But if you are some one who is going to experience in Automatic car for the very first time you will be impressed with the refinement from this engine (despite been of 3 cylinder) and remarkable smoothness in gear shift change. Its even smooth in gear shift response than Verna, Creta or even Elantra to the fact.

The steering is light and firms up (although not to the kind of feedback as one gets in XUV300), visibility is great, A pillar is not that thick, suspension is stiffened up but will say well tuned for Indian roads, Ground Clearance is at 195 mm. Brakes are near best and found it even better against when compared to Hyundai Creta. 

For complaints - one who has been driving in Automatic cars or love performance oriented may not appreciate in turbo lag under 2000 rpm and lacks of Sports Mode with lack of paddle  shift is a definite downside.

However, the Manual Transmission should be the choice for those who love sllight enthu or Performance oriented car, its even more responsive and one can just enjoy the fun even better. But DCT Automatic should be on choice where you seek convenience with smoothness in drive.

For Mileage - anything around 12 Kmpl should be a reasonable expectation in city drive


Space: Hyundai Venue rear seat space yes feels the most compact in Sub 4 Meter SUV Segment. Although headroom is good, but legroom space is relative less. If front seat is adjusted to some one having 5’11 height and you have tall members in family to sit on rear then will complain more.

The In Cabin Space is ideal for 4 people where rear seats should be occupied by kids or average build adult for some one under 5’5” height to be at ease.

Boot Space is good at 350 Litre, however no 60:40 Split on Rear Seats of Venue. Door pockets has good cabin for bottle holder 

Features: The Styling cues of Hyundai Venue definite impress in. If you buying Sx DCT will get Electric Sunroof, LED Rectangular DRL, Projectors, LED Tail Light, 8 Inch Multimedia Tocuhscreen AVN with artificial intelligence along with Voice Command, Stylish 16 Inch Alloy Wheels, Push Button Ignition, Automatic Climate Control, Wireless Phone Charger, Rear View Camera as key USP

While Venue S DCT is loaded with all standard Safety including ESP, Hill Hold Assist, Traction Control along with ABS, EBD, Airbags, all standard convenience as Power Steering, All Power Window, Remote Lock, Music System, Steering Mount Control, AC with Rear AC Vents, Rear Defogger along with 15 Inch Wheels with full wheel cover.


Styling:  Interiors remains in Black theme with Black seating fabric, black dashboard layout in both S and Sx Variant. No Soft Touch Plastic. It just looks and feels okay - although for some one considering family car may not like as the cabin yes feels claustrophobic to an extent

However, from Exteriors the Styling cues of Sx DCT impress with DRL, Projector, Chrome Handles, Machine cut alloys with LED DRL. The car overall styling although does not reflect in like a SUV, but rather a raised hatchback kind of feel.

In end whether the styling is good or bad is entirely subjective and basis your preference taste

Build, Safety: Venue DCT is available in middle variants. So no Side Airbags and no Curtain Airbags available in Venue. The Build Quality feels okay but yes does not feel (to our view) as sturdy as what Nexon or Ecosport in the segment

But - the car comes equipped with impressive braking experience (despite of rear brake drum), ABS with EBD, Dual Airbags, ESP, Traction Control. If you drive on highway - ESP plays a very important role in emergency situation to steer the car

After Sales Maintenance: Hyundai Venue After Sales Service with Oil Change is every 10000 Kms or a year. However, good part is that no change of transmission fluid, no change of Brake Fluid, Coolant only once in 10 Year, Fuel Filter and Spark Plug only once in 5 year (or kms) so expect Venue After sales service maintenance very reasonable

Should you buy Hyundai Venue 

Answer is yes - will love very smooth gear shift response, features, active safety of ESP, suspension, light steering, visibility along with signature features of Sx including Touchscreen with advanced artifical intelligence

Answer is no - where you seek spacious family car, bright interiors, love SUV like handling as Venue steering lacks the handling aspect of SUV despite been light and good in city feedback or where you love a Performance enthu car as the turbo lag under 2000 rpm along with lack of paddle shift, sports mode just spoils the mood
