The Hyundai Venue is basic shape makes it look like a scaled-down Creta but styling is far more flamboyant on the compact SUV, particularly the split headlamp arrangement. The Hyundai Venue interior is neatly styled and the dashboard that places the 8-inch touchscreen high up is particularly user-friendly. Hyundai has also incorporated plenty of storage for small items in the Venue cabin and even the boot is large enough to hold two suitcases.
What also makes the Venue a strong seller in the Indian market is the fact that it comes with competitive engines and gearbox options. The 1.0 unit is smooth and performance is pleasant. The manual gearbox with its short throws feels sporty while the optional seven-speed dual-clutch auto also works well with the engine, making the Venue automatic a good choice for urban buyers.
In terms of ride comfort, the Venue is fairly well sorted with good bump absorption. The Venue is handling is best described as tidy - there is a fair amount of grip and the steering is well-weighted.
The cherry on the icing is the fact that Hyundai is after-sales is very strong and the ownership experience is something that has kept millions of customers coming back for more.
