Hyundai will officially unveil the all-new Venue on 17th April at the 2019 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). However, the Korean brand has been officially releasing new videos of the heavily camouflaged test mules of the upcoming vehicle testing on the Indian roads. Hyundai has officially released the third video in the series that shows the upcoming Hyundai Venue climbing up the lower Himalayas.

The video shows the Venue going through the twisted roads of the lower Himalayas and reaching 7,000 feet of altitude. The Venue also goes through a snow-covered road of the mountains where the temperature reaches -7 degrees.
The Hyundai Venue is the first-ever sub-4m compact SUV from the Korean brand and will take on the likes of Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV 300, and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Earlier, the pictures of the Hyundai Venue were leaked online that completely reveals the design of the car. The leaked pictures show the new cascade grille of the upcoming Hyundai Venue. The car will get square DRLs around the main headlamp cluster, which are positioned below in the bumper. There are additional lamps that form the extended part of the grille but they are likely to work only as turn indicators. At the rear, the car gets the “Venue” branding across the tailgate. The leaked pictures also revealed the alloy wheel design of the upcoming car. On the inside, the all-new Hyundai Venue will get a floating-type infotainment screen in the centre and an all-black dashboard with silver highlights.
The upcoming car will get a host of features and many of them will be first-in-segment offerings. It will get 33 features in total and 10 of them will be India-specific. Hyundai has officially revealed that the all-new Venue will get an eSIM provided by Vodafone-Idea. It will be used to keep the car connected to the cloud all the time. The system will provide real-time traffic information and the usage of the services will remain free till the car stays in warranty. The Venue will also offer features like automatic emergency calling during accidents and will allow owners to remotely control features of the vehicle including the AC.
The all-new Hyundai Venue is expected to offer three different engines in the Indian market. There will be a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.4-litre diesel engine that also powers the Hyundai Verna and Hyundai Creta and a performance-oriented 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Hyundai will offer both manual and automatic transmission options with the various engine options. The price of the all-new Venue is likely to be on the higher side as it will be rich in features.
