Hyundai Venue is the latest entrant in the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment in the country. It became popular among buyers within a very short span of time due to various reasons like the design and features it offered. It competes with cars like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport in the segment. Here we have a video that shows what the S trim which is one above the base E trim has to offer.
Normaly lower trims of any car from any brand are not that well equipped in terms of features but not the Hyundai Venue. The S trim gets the wide chrome grille at the front that is seen on the higher trims. The headlight design remains the same does not get projector type lamps in it. It also misses on the LED DRLs around the headlamp area and fog lamp. There are chrome inserts around the headlight area instead of DRLs.
Coming to the side profile the car gets 15 inch steel rims with wheel caps and the turn indicators are placed on the fenders instead of ORVMs. The car continues to get the black classing along the wheel arches and doors. At the rear, the design remains simple with normal tail lamps and reflectors with Venue badging at the rear. The rear misses on rear windscreen wiper which is there on the higher variants. The S trim shown in the video is the turbo petrol model and gets Turbo badging at the rear.
On the inside, it gets power window switches for all windows on the driver side along with controls for adjusting the ORVMs electrically. The tweeters are placed on the door. The Venue gets a basic music system which is not touchscreen. The seats are fabric with adjustable headrests. The S trim does not get push button start that is their on the higher variants but gets a central locking key fob and steering wheel controls.
The AC is manual, instrument cluster gets digital MID display and analog speedo and tachometer. Even the S trim gets rear AC vents and charging sockets for rear seat passengers. Overall, the S trim is definitely a value for money offering for a price conscious buyer. The 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine of Venue produces 118 Bhp and 172 nm of torque. It is available with two gearbox options: a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed twin clutch automatic.
