Hyundai much awaited sub-4 meter SUV Venue will be officially unveiled on the 17th of April, which makes it two days away from today. However, before the world debut, images of the production-ready model have surfaced which reveal almost the whole of the vehicle’s exteriors. These pictures were clicked when an advertisement of the Hyundai Venue was being played at the Times Square, New York, USA. The official unveiling of the sub-4 meter SUV will also be done at the New York Motor Show on the 17th of April, alongside the unveiling in India.
As seen in the images, Hyundai is marketing the Venue with a tagline that reads ‘For the urban adventurer’. This indicates towards its SUV like stance and design along with the compact dimensions that make it a good vehicle for cities, be it the US or India. A lot of spy shots and renders have already given us a clear picture of how the Venue will look like but this puts a seal to all of them. Also being advertised is the dual tone roof, which here sports white paint. It gets the same stylish multispoke alloys that were spotted on test mules in India, though the low profile tires will not be available here. The side profile of the Venue looks a bit similar to the Creta. In fact, the whole design of the Venue is inspired by bigger SUVs in Hyundai lineup, though the rear end gets a distinctive design.
The front fascia is marked by the chrome cascading grille along with the sleek LED DRLs and headlamps. The sides will sport a black body cladding running around the bottom length which will further give it a tough look. The venue will also come with a sunroof, though it will be available in the higher end variants only. On the inside, the Venue gets a clean dashboard layout with a large 8-inch BlueLink infotainment system taking the centre space.
The Maruti Vitara Brezza challenger comes with 33 connectivity features, out of which 10 have been developed specifically for India. Other features on the Hyundai Venue include a reverse camera with parking sensors, rain sensing wiper, ventilated front seats, keyless entry with push-button start, automatic headlamps, electronically controlled exterior mirrors, ABS with EBD, ESP, 6 airbags, and many more.
At the time of its launch here, which is set to happen on the 21st of May according to a report, Hyundai will bring three engine options on the Venue. This includes a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre diesel engine. It will take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and the Ford Ecosport among others. It will be interesting to see how the Venue performs in the market and will it disrupt the dominance of the Vitara Brezza upon its arrival.
