Due to the increasing demand, some variants of Hyundai Venue now demands for a waiting period of up to 15 weeks.
Hyundai has gained success with the launch of the sub-compact SUV Hyundai Venue. Within months after its debut, this small-size SUV has attained the top spot on the sales chart of its segment. To reach the top, the Hyundai Venue has ended the long reign of the segment-leading Maruti Vitara Brezza. The soaring demand for the Venue has caused the waiting period to increase. Currently, some variants of the Hyundai Venue demand for a waiting time of up to 15 weeks.
Hyundai Venue has become the best-selling car in its class
Across its range, the Hyundai Venue with the 1.0-litre petrol engine requires the longest waiting period. In particular, being one of the most popular choices, the mid-range S trim with dual-clutch transmission claims the waiting time of 15 weeks for customers in some cities. On the other hand, its manual counterpart only takes around two months. In the diesel range, the waiting period for S diesel variant also has also gone up to six weeks.
The waiting period is particularly high for the S variant, which explains the high waiting period. In the meanwhile, other less popular options like the mid-range SX and SX (O) trim requires only around two weeks for the delivery to be done. Coming to the high-spec SX Plus variant, the waiting period is extended to three weeks. Hyundai Venue E with 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine has a waiting period of six weeks.
Hyundai Venue’s S trim is the most popular choice
Hyundai Venue’s main attraction lies in the provision of class-leading features and attractive design. Hyundai offers the BlueLink smart connectivity system which includes a wide range of advanced features. Moreover, Hyundai introduces 10 features specifically developed for the India market. Apart from state-of-the-art connectivity functions, Hyundai Venue also offers top-notch comfort features like dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless charger, push-button start, air purifier, chilled glovebox and electric sunroof. Additionally, the Venue also has automatic headlights, rain-sensor wiper and smart key.
About the powertrains, Hyundai Venue is available with three engine options including two petrol engines and one diesel motor. The petrol variant is powered by either a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder VTVT or a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbo engine. While the smaller engine gets two gearbox options, 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed manual gearbox, the 1.4-litre petrol unit is mated solely to the 5-speed manual gearbox. The diesel range exclusively makes use of the 1.4-litre 4-cylinder turbo engine. This motor is coupled with a 6-speed manual unit. To get more car updates, check out IndianAuto.com.
