The Hyundai Venue is the current buzzword in the Indian auto scene. The sub-4 meter SUV rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford Ecosport and the Mahindra XUV300 among others in its segment. Though Hyundai has joined the party late, it comes with enough bells and whistles to make a good case for itself. Many people who have seen the Venue in real life have said that it looks a bit small compared to the other vehicles of its segment. For the same, the video below by Yogi Sejwal Design shows a render in which the Venue has been given a dose of steroids and is converted into a full-fledged off-road beast.
Now the vehicles in the sub-4 meter SUV segments are all crossovers and none of them come with any real off-road capabilities. They are presented as small DUV designed vehicles that offer attributes like high ground clearance and a butch stance in a budget. However, the render here has given the Hyundai Venue a full makeover and the car now looks as if it could conquer anything in its path. Talking about the changes made on the vehicle, the frot indicators lamps now carry a yellow tint while the front grille has been replaced with a honeycomb mesh unit.
The bumper has been replaced with an offroad spec unit that comes fitted with tow hooks. A large bash plate has been added at the front while the ORVMs have been replaced with big square units. An LED light bar along with four auxiliary lamps have been added on top. Also present on the roof is a carrier and what seems to be like a smaller tent tucked away neatly. The whole body has been painted in a shade of glossy greyish-black shade while the roof has been kept white.
The fenders have been flared in order to accommodate those huge off-road spec wheels. Speaking of which, the six spoke black alloy wheels come shod on with off-road spec wheels which lend it the grip needed to take on the uncharted terrain. The SUV also gets custom side steps along with body cladding whih add up to the whole look. The ground clearance has been given a boost too and the car now sits much higher than the stock Venue.
Talking about the Hyundai Venue, it comes with a total of 3 engine options. The petrol engines on the Venue are a 1.2 litre 4 cylinder petrol unit (82 Bhp-115 Nm) while the other is a 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder turbocharged unit (118 Bhp-172 Nm). The diesel engine, on the other hand, is a 1.4 litre 4 cylinder, turbocharged unit that puts out a decent 89 Bhp of power and 220 Nm of torque. The gearbox options on the Hyundai are- the 1.4-litre petrol motor gets a 5-speed manual gearbox while the diesel will get a 6-speed manual unit. The 1.0-litre unit, however, gets a choice between either a 7-speed DCT unit or the 6-speed manual unit.
