Hyundai Venue vs Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, for long, has enjoyed the top position in the compact SUV segment. The undefeated streak, however, could come to an end soon due to fresh entrants such as the Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300 which have stirred up a storm after climbing up to the second and third positions respectively. Interestingly, the Hyundai Venue is not far from the sales figures of the Vitara Brezza.
The Hyundai Venue was launched towards the end of May and has already clocked 8763 models in a month. Similarly, the XUV300 also witnessed a surge in demand with 4763 models in the third position. At its launch, the Venue was introduced in a total of 13 variants including five diesel and eight petrol variants across four trim levels – E, S, SX, and SX(0). It comes with three engine options -- a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit, 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit and a 1.4-litre diesel engine. The Venue will be Hyundai’s first model in India to offer in-house developed 7-Speed and an automatic gearbox with DCT technology. Alongside this, it gets a 6-speed and a 5-speed manual transmission as well.
The Hyundai Venue is the brand’s first model in India to feature the ‘Blue Link’ connectivity solution, with 33 connected features. It gets features like remote start-stop, remote climate control and remote door lock/unlock, along with a find my car function. The Venue also gets live car tracking, geo-fencing and speed alerts that can all be checked via an app that connects to the SUV.
It comes in seven monotone colour options offered across all variants of the car-- Star Dust, Fiery Red, Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Deep Forest, Lava Orange and Denim Blue (the last three being new colours for Hyundai). Apart from the monochrome option, the Venue will also be available in three dual colour options--blue with white roof, orange with black roof and white with black roof.
The tray of safety features in the Venue comes with 6 airbags, speed sensing auto door unlock, ESC/ESP & (Vehicle Stability Management), HAC (Hill Assist Control), BAS (Brake Assist System) and ISOFIX mounts. Onto one of the most exciting parts of the Hyundai Venue – the Blue Link connected car technology. Hyundai says that Blue Link will allow owners to remotely start the Venue or open the doors, control the climate, sound the horn and control the light as well. It will also provide real-time traffic information, detect vehicle theft, track and immobilize the Venue remotely.
