In India, SUVs are one of the most popular category in vehicle. The most popular in this category is the sub-4 meter compact SUVs. The reason why sub-4 meter SUVs are popular in the market is because they are cheap and have bold looks and also offer several premium features. One of the most popular sub-4 meter compact SUV in the country is Hyundai Venue. It was introduced in the market few years ago and it became popular among buyers in a short span of time. It competes with cars like Maruti Brezza, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport in the segment. Here we have a video where a Hyundai Venue is modified with aftermarket accessories.
The video has been uploaded by Technical bhopal on their YouTube channel. This is not the first Hyundai Venue that has been modified in India. Ever since Hyundai launched Venue in the market, aftermarket accessories were also available. We have featured several Hyundai Venue SUVs in the past that were tastefully modified both inside and outside.
In this video, the vlogger shows a Hyundai Venue SUV that gets a custom made seat cover and aftermarket bumper guard. As we are all aware that bull bars and other metal bumpers on cars are not legal as they are quite dangerous for both occupants and pedestrians. Several brands have now come with ABS plastic bumper protectors which stick on to the existing bumper and gives a bold look.
The owner of this Hyundai Venue had also opted for similar type of bumper protector. The aftermarket bumper protector that has been installed on this Venue is made of ABS plastic and it gets black shade which is broken neatly with silver inserts. The lower part of this bumper is designed to look like a skid plate which looks quite good.
Other than this, a rear diffuser has also been installed on this Venue. This also gets black and silver finish. Other than this, no other major modifications can be seen on this Hyundai Venue. This is probably a lower variant which is why it doesn’t get alloy wheels, projector headlamps or touchscreen infotainment screen. Inside this Hyundai Venue, the owner has gone for a custom fit seat cover. As per customer’s demand, this was done in a shade that matches the overall theme of the cabin. The seats are wrapped in leather upholstery with contrast silver stitching and piping on it. The work done on this Venue is subtle and neatly done. Video doesn’t share the approximate cost of this modification.
Hyundai Venue is actually available in three different engine options. There is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that comes with manual gearbox option. The 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine is also available with a manual gearbox. The most powerful engine option is the 1.0 litre, three cylinder, turbo petrol engine which generates 120 Ps and 172 Nm of peak torque. It is available with a manual, DCT gearbox option. Last year, Hyundai also introduced iMT gearbox option in this variant.
