In an unexpected move, Hyundai has silently revealed the prices of the BS6-compliant Venue.
The new model, priced at Rs. 6.70 lakh, carries a premium of up to Rs. 51,000 over the BS4 counterpart.
Notably, the company has replaced the 1.4-liter diesel engine on the outgoing model with a new 1.5-liter unit that we have seen on the Kia Seltos.
BS6 Hyundai Venue: At a glance
The BS6-compliant Venue retains the styling cues of the outgoing model. It sports a compact design with a muscular-looking front bonnet, blacked-out wheel arches as well as side claddings, and an attractive paint job.
The car houses projector headlamps with DRLs, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and silver-colored roof rails.
Moreover, it runs on 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and has a wheelbase of 2,500mm.
Inside the cabin
Inside, the new Hyundai Venue houses a five-seater dual-tone cabin featuring a panoramic sunroof and grey-colored accents around the AC vents, center console, and steering wheel.
The car comes with features like automatic climate control, wireless charging, and houses an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with support for BlueLink connected car technology.
Furthermore, it retains the safety features of the outgoing variant.
The car is available with both petrol and diesel engines
The updated Hyundai Venue is offered with three BS6-compliant engines: a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol, a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol, and a 1.5-liter turbo-diesel.
The former two are capable of producing 83hp and 120hp of maximum power, respectively, while the latter churns out 90hp.
Moreover, the car is available with both manual and automatic transmission options.
And, what about pricing?
The BS6-compliant Hyundai Venue starts at Rs. 6.70 lakh for the petrol-powered E variant and goes up to Rs. 11.50 lakh for the diesel-based SX Option Dual Tone model. Lastly, the mid-sized SUV competes against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, and Mahindra XUV300.
