Hyundai has tried to give it a look similar to Creta and to many, it does appear as a small Creta. The vehicle comes with solid exterior features such as its chrome-lined grille, split led headlamps, LED DRLs, projector fog lights and the crystal effect LED taillamps to provide it with a sporty look. The addition of roof rails and a shark fin antenna adorns the exterior from above. The 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels are also there to give a more premium look. The car has a dimension of 3995×1770×1605 mm. The wheelbase measures 2500mm, while the car stands high at a ground clearance of 190mm. The car has a dedicated sunroof and comes in six colour options where two options i.e. grey and white are also provided with a black roof.
The compact SUV comes with an over the top designed all-black cabin. The dashboard looks premium and sports an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen. Hyundai's Venue is the most advanced car in its segment if it comes to feature. The compact SUV comes with its own embedded SIM card that allows the user to perform multiple actions such as locking and unlocking the doors and starting the vehicle’s engine using a smartphone. The car comes in three transmissions, namely manual, clutchless manual and automatic (dual-clutch). Another noticeable feature is its massive 350-litre boot space.
The Hyundai Venue provides three engine options; a 1.5-litre diesel engine of 1493cc, a 1.2-lite petrol engine of 1197cc and a 1-litre turbo petrol engine of 998cc. The power for all three engines varies as 100hp for 1.5-litre diesel, 83hp for 1.2-litre petrol engine and 120hp for 1-litre turbo petrol engine. The 1.2litre petrol engine comes only with 5-speed manual transmissions, while the turbo petrol engine comes with a 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic transmission. Also, the diesel variant only comes with 6-speed manual transmission. The mileage, as Hyundai claims, varies between 17.24 km/l to 23.4 km/l.
The car is provided with two airbags in all variants except the topmost SX(O) variant. ABS along with EBD features in all seven variants. Though there are some added security features such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), they vary from variant to variant. Also, while all the variants are equipped with parking sensors, the reverse parking camera comes only in the top three variants. Nonetheless, Hyundai Venue boasts of a strong structural body as the car has been awarded 4 stars against crash test by ANCAP.
