According to the latest price changes, the Hyundai Venue petrol will be pricier by Rs 12,000. Hyundai Venue diesel, on the other hand, gets a price hike of Rs 7,000 across the trims. It means that the Hyundai Venue petrol is now available from Rs 6.75 lakh to Rs 11.65 lakh (ex-showroom). Hyundai Venue diesel is offered from Rs 8.17 lakh to Rs 11.59 lakh (ex-showroom).
At the moment, Hyundai Venue’s entry-level model is more expensive than its arch-rival – Kia Sonet – by Rs 4,000. However, the top-spec Venue variants are still more affordable than high-spec Sonet variants. With more features and techs, the top-spec Kia Sonet costs around 1.25 lakh more than the Hyundai Venue’s top-of-the-line model. The Sonet was launched just earlier this month with the price ranging from Rs 6.71 lakh to Rs 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
Along with the price changes, Hyundai also crossed out the dual-tone options for the SX and SX (O) trims. Compared to the regular version, the Sport variants are added with some special cosmetic treatments like red exterior accents and dual-tone interior colour.
