We had recently reported the changes made to the Venue lineup by Hyundai and now Hyundai has released the prices for the new variants. Hyundai has deleted 5 variants namely E, S and SX(O) petrol manual. The new variants to make up for these are S(O) and SX(O) Executive.
The S(O) 1.0 iMT costs ₹9,03,560 and S(O) DCT costs ₹9,04,100. The diesel S(O) costs ₹9,44,900 and SX(O) Executive will set you back by ₹10,96,901.
The new addition to the Venue is the ‘stylised steel wheels’ in the SX and S(O) trims. The Bluelink connected car technology has also been updated with additional features. The SX(O) Executive misses out on the chrome door handles present in the SX(O). The features list for both the new variants hasn’t been updated yet but we expect the new SX(O) executive to lose out a few features over the SX(O) considering the lower price point.
Hyundai Venue – Overview
The Venue has been in the market since 2019 and it has been one of the top-selling SUVs in its segment. The Venue comes with three engine and four transmission options. The naturally aspirated 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine churns out 83ps and 114nm of torque. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.5-litre diesel churns out 100ps and 250nm of torque mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The turbocharged 1.0 litre 3 cylinder petrol engine produces 120ps and 172nm of torque. It gets an option of a 6-speed manual, 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and a 6-speed iMT. The Venue comes with features like a cooled glovebox, keyless entry, push start/stop, cruise control, sunroof, Bluelink connected car tech, automatic climate control, 8-inch touchscreen compatible with android auto and apple carplay, wireless charging and projector headlamps.
The Venue gets safety features such as TPMS, ABS, TCS, ESC, HLA and 6 airbags. Hyundai has been updating the Venue to stay relevant among the competition every now and then but we expect a facelift sometime next year considering that it’ll be 3 years since its launch in the market by then.
