Hyundai launched its much anticipated sub-4 meter SUV, the Venue, last month and the car has received quite a good response from the buyers. It has already become the second best selling vehicle in the segment, though the coming 2-3 months will paint the complete picture. It comes with several segment first features like Bluelink connectivity, air purifier, and a 7-speed DCT among others. While the Venue is a decent looking vehicle in itself, a few dealerships have started rolling out customization options for the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Bezza rival in order to enhance its aesthetics. The video below by Harsh VLOGS shows us a customised example of the Hyundai Venue with changes done both on the exteriors as well as the interiors.
The changes made on this vehicle have been done by the dealership itself and hence they won’t attract any penalty. Talking about the changes made on this Venue, the Roof has been wrapped in a coffee brown shade which surprisingly looks quite good. The white paint job along with the black pillars create a pretty good contrast with the roof. The ORVMs too have been given the same wrap treatment but their lower part has been left black. This wrap job can be done on any variant of the Hyundai Venue.
As mentioned earlier, the interiors of this Venue have been customised too. They sport the same coffee brown shade and look quite good. Parts of the dashboard and the centre console, as well as the steering wheel, have been draped in brown leather material giving the car a premium feel on the inside. Moreover, the stock seat covers have been replaced with new units that sport a similar coffee brown shade along with the quilted pattern in black at the centre. The leather seats covers get white bordering which further enhances their look. The cost of the interior customization job, as told is the video, is around Rs. 45,000.
Talking about the Hyundai Venue, it rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport among others in the sub-4 meter SUV segment. Hyundai has priced the base variant of the Venue at Rs. 6.50 lakh while the top end variant retails for Rs. 11.10 lakh (both prices ex-showroom, India). Speaking about the powertrains, it comes with three engine options.
The petrol engines on the Venue are a 1.2 litre 4 cylinder, VTVT, naturally aspirated petrol unit while the other is a 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder turbocharged unit. The former has an output of 82 Bhp-115 Nm while the latter puts out 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. Coming to the gearbox options, the 1.4-litre petrol motor will get 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.
