Hyundai Venue dual-tone variants will compete against the similar models of Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and Maruti Vitara Brezza.
Hyundai’s first compact SUV for India, the Venue was just launched earlier this year at a healthy price bracket of around Rs 6.5 Lakh (Ex-showroom, India). The all-new Venue has seen a phenomenal response in India, contributing to Hyundai’s rising market share despite the fact that the industry slowdown is currently plaguing the country.
Hyundai India is set to make some models of Venue's top-spec trims available with dual-tone treatment.
However, at the time of launch, the Hyundai Venue was available with a dual-tone body colour option on the SX trim only, limited to the 1.4-litre diesel engine and 1.0-litre petrol models at the prices of Rs 9.93 Lakh and Rs 9.96 Lakh, respectively. Whereas, the 1.2-litre petrol version comes sans the dual-tone paint option as the engine is offered in the lower variants solely.

The 1.0-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel of the SX(O) and 1.0-litre petrol-AT of the SX+ trim will get the new dual-tone options.
As per some reports by Autocar, the top-spec trims of the Venue will more likely to get dual-tone exterior colour treatment soon. The new paint options will be available in the SX(O) trim which is currently being on sale in petrol-MT and diesel-MT variants. This paint scheme will also find its way on the 1.0-litre petrol-automatic version of the SX+ trim. It should be noted that this model has never been offered with dual-tone paint shades so far.
