How can the Hyundai Venue impress buyers in the international market? Here’s a special review on Hyundai Venue by people from Australia where it also sets foot into.
Hyundai Venue is an extremely successful car, not only in India but also in some other international markets. The Venue has left a strong impression among the car buyers in the Indian market due to its good-looking design, effortless performance and plenty of advanced features on the package.

From the video uploaded by CarTell.tv, we know that the Australia-spec Hyundai Venue holds some differences from the one sold in the Indian space. The first thing that differentiates the Venue SUVs in Australia and India is the trim levels. The Australian version of the Hyundai Venue is available in three grades in which Go is the entry-level, the Active is the mid-spec and the Elite tops off the trim levels. As far as the exterior goes, the Hyundai Venue looks much identical to the Indian version.
It features the same lighting setup at the front with daytime running lamps mounted around the headlamps and the turn indicators placed above it. The alloy wheels design, however, is different from the car in India. Save for that, everything remains unchanged. Hyundai makes the Australian buyers available with some customization jobs based on their choices to the interior and exterior extensively.
The boxy silhouette of the car has been appreciated by the host in the video. It is a trendy design and it can translate into more space as well as airier kind of feeling on the inside too.
The boxy design of the Venue makes it quite a looker, even though it’s not the best-looking SUV in the Australian market. Besides, the practical side of the Venue’s boxiness also appeals to the Australians who are looking for a practical compact SUV for easy handling.
Hyundai also gives the Australia-spec Venue an exciting interior, just like that of the India-spec model. The Venue in Australia comes with drive modes and the TC selector (traction control) to control the throttle. Powering the Hyundai Venue in this country is a 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol mill making 121 HP of power and 151 Nm of torque and comes mated to a manual or a torque converter. This engine, as per the Australian host, is reliable, affordable and easy to maintain – quite another plus point.

Although the 1.6-litre engine of the Venue is felt a bit underpowered at some places, the practicality and ride quality is pretty cool. The car delivers quite a nice linear acceleration. Light steering, short wheelbase and lightweight traits offer a bit of fun on the twisting roads. All in all, the impression on the Venue here is very good.
Hyundai Venue also manages to carve a niche for itself in the Indian market. It is now hot on the trail of the Maruti Vitara Brezza which is currently the segment-leader in the competition. In a recent update, the Hyundai Venue BS6 has been launched in India with a 1.5-litre diesel engine from the Kia Seltos.
