Hyundai currently has opened bookings of their latest sub-compact SUV, the Venue. Having gained immense popularity much before its unveiling, there were as many as 2,000 bookings for the car on its first day itself. To be offered in six variants, the Venue will come with a choice of three engines, an 81 hp 1.2-litre petrol, a 120 hp 1-litre turbocharged petrol and a 90 hp 1.4-litre diesel mill. While all these engines will be offered with a manual gearbox as standard, the peppy 1-litre turbocharged petrol will come with an option of a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. This would make the Venue the only car in its segment to currently offer one. Expected to be priced between INR 8-12 Lakh, the Venue will be competing against the likes of the Tata Nexon, Ford Ecosport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the newly launched Mahindra XUV300 when launched later this month.
