Hyundai launched the Venue yesterday at a very lucrative price. Hyundai started taking the official bookings for the all-new Venue from April 2019 and the brand announced that there are more than 15,000 confirmed bookings that have been received across India. That’s quite a staggering response for the much-awaited car. Soon after the price announcement of the Venue yesterday, the dealerships across India began the delivery process and here is a video from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh that shows one of the first deliveries in the country and first Hyundai Venue delivery in Lucknow.
The video by Mr Car Lover shows an event hosted by the dealership for the delivery of the car to the customers. The car shown in the video is the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. It is a brand-new engine and for the first time, Hyundai is offering the dual-clutch transmission in the segment. It sure is a big step and shows how much faith customers put on the brand who buy the vehicle even without taking a test drive.
Nonetheless, Hyundai is targetting to sell close to 10,000 units of the Venue in the Indian market, which will make it the leading SUV manufacturer in India as the already-popular Hyundai Creta sells around 10,000 units on an average every month. With the Venue joining the sales chart from this month, the Hyundai’s overall SUV numbers will be bigger than any other brand in the Indian market.
The Hyundai Venue is available in eleven variants and the base version of the car is priced at Rs 6.5 lakh, ex-showroom. The most expensive variant of the Venue is priced at Rs 11.10 lakh, ex-showroom. It gets an option of three engines – two petrol and one diesel version.
