Hyundai Venue has been launched amid much fanfare in India. Due to the onslaught of bookings registered across the country, the SUV currently commands a waiting period of more than two months.
After almost a month of launch, the Hyundai Venue has been receiving phenomenal responses from car buyers in the domestic market. Hyundai’s latest entrant in the sub-four-metre SUV segment gets the price starting from Rs 6.50 Lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs 11.10 Lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec variant. Interestingly, the new Venue recorded more than 15,000 booking orders even before its prices were announced on May 21.
The Hyundai Venue has been on sale for nearly a month, prices ranging from Rs 6.50- 11.10 Lakh (ex-showroom, India).
With exponential demands for the all-new compact SUV, Hyundai has just confirmed that the Venue will have a waiting period soaring to 6-8 weeks, depending upon the specific variants. Until now, the Venue’s newly-built 1.0-litre GDI turbo-petrol engine is the most popular choice among customers. Regarding the engines, the Hyundai Venue employs three engines option under the bonnet- a new 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to a 7-speed DCT automatic unit, a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol motor paired with a 5-speed MT along with a 1.4-litre oil burner coupled with a 6-speed MT option.
Hyundai Venue is gaining such excellent responses from the enthusiasts that it commands a waiting period of over two months.
The diesel motor is the second most popular choice among Venue’s buyers in India and of course, the 1.2-litre petrol turns out to be least popular due to its middling features on offer. Speaking of the variants, the Hyundai Venue’s 1.0-litre petrol MT, dubbed the SX trim appears to be the crowd favourite. Whereas both the S and SX+ trims of the automatic Hyundai Venue are also in great demand.
The range-topping Hyundai Venue is kitted out with a range of high-end creature-comforts including auto climate control, leather seats, an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen compatible with Hyundai’s Blue Link and Arkamys audio system, wireless charging, machined alloy wheels, sunroof as well as a suite of essential safety bits.
The all-new Venue is available with 10 different body paints and 3 options for interior upholstery. For now, the Venue is competing aggressively with the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport which are currently the best-selling models in the monthly sales chart. Let’s wait to see how the Venue can affect the competition in the coming months.
