Hyundai is about to reveal its all-new 2019 Hyundai Venue for India and global markets. Before the official launch in May, we bring you some exclusive sneak-peeks and tell you everything that it has to offer

2019 Hyundai Venue: Introduction

All the speculations and rumours that were flying around, as to what exactly the new compact utility vehicle from Hyundai will be called, have finally been put to rest. To everyone’s surprise, the entire industry got it wrong. The new sub-4 metre, Ford Ecosport rivalling SUV from Hyundai will not be called the Styx or even the Carlino, for that matter. Hyundai has chosen to call its new SUV, the Venue. It showcased the Carlino concept at the Auto Expo 2016 in Delhi, and various spy shots have caught the car testing all over the country, and Hyundai is gearing up to unveil the brand new Venue within this month. While the car's arrival has already created quite a buzz around the internet, we thought a well-scripted post was in order, to help you know more about what the new compact utility vehicle has to offer.

 

 

2019 Hyundai Venue: Exterior design and dimensions

The car is heavily inspired by the overall design of other models from Hyundai in its line-up. The front gets a sharp-looking fascia with a two-tier design for the cascading grille and LED DRL equipped headlamps, inspired by the Kona SUV. The side profile has heavy hints of its bigger brother, the Creta and rear is a spitting image of the smaller, but equally handsome, Grand i10. The car will measure less than 4 metres in length and hence when launched will take on the likes of the Maruti Brezza, Mahindra XUV 300, Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport. While several teasers and videos of test mules have surfaced the internet, the Venue has also been spotted at dealer yards way before the actual launch in May, we suspect for official business purposes. Our exclusive set of pictures show us the two-tone chrome and black cross-pattern front grille which also get, the rear which shows the boot lid design similar to the Grand i10, a well laid-out and well-appointed interior and a new alloy wheel design specifically made for the Venue. However, from all that is new in Hyundai’s new CUV, the interior and features are what will set the Venue apart from its competition. 

 

 

2019 Hyundai Venue: Interior design and features

The car is being marketed as India’s first full connected SUV, being introduced with Hyundai’s global Bluelink Connected Solutions system. This new system will add a total of 33 connectivity features, 10 of which are India-specific and all extremely useful for you to be in constant communication with your car. Other than offering you various security, remote sensing and artificial intelligence services, these features will help you record, track and constantly monitor the car’s movements, in case you aren’t the one driving. If you are, it’ll help record, track and monitor your driving style and behaviour. This is possible from the fact that the BlueLink setup features an in-built and tamper-proof telecommunication capability that is powered by a Vodafone-sourced eSIM and also uses the advancement of a cloud-based voice recognition platform from Global AI (Artificial Intelligence) Company. The high-tech solution that the new BlueLink setup has to offer also includes in-built navigation with the device offering real-time traffic information, satellite-guided navigation and Live Local Search in collaboration with a global online maps provider. Another big advancement for the compact SUV is the integration of an Interactive Voice Recognition feature that is capable of recognising English in an Indian accent. What’s also a big point to note is, that the software has been fine-tuned by system’s manufacturers to support various accents found in different parts of the country, be it north or south. Other premium features include niceties like a sunroof, touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging for smartphones and LED projector headlamps. All in all, the new Venue will be loaded to the gill in features and will have each of those features under his control at all times. Turn on the air conditioning before getting to the car, no problem. Want to monitor your child’s speed and location when they’re out with your Venue? No problem. The new smart-car from Hyundai has the capability to do it all and uphold its reputation of reliability to the tee.

 

 

2019 Hyundai Venue: Engine and transmission options

While engine specifications and other details are yet to be confirmed, in all likeliness the new Venue will get a choice of three engine configurations and two transmission options. The first two engine choices are Hyundai’s familiar 1.4-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel, which will most likely produce a total power output of 100bhp and 90bhp respectively, in the Venue’s specific state-of-tune. Hyundai is also likely to offer a new 1.0-litre turbo engine from international markets, which would be available soon on offer in the Elite i20. There is also a chance that Hyundai will offer the new 1.0-litre three-pot motor, paired to its advanced 7-speed dual clutch gearbox which it offers in the international market in models like i30 flagship hatchback. However, while the new motor gets the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the rest of the engines in the lot might have to do with just a 6-speed manual on the helm. Making an occasion out of its introduction, the Hyundai Venue is scheduled to be simultaneously revealed in India and at the New York Motor Show in mid-April. However, the launch of the new model from Hyundai in India is reserved for May 2019. The launch will also signify Hyundai’s first real foray into the mini utility vehicle, and the move has been a long time coming. While the Hyundai promises utmost luxury and advanced connectivity, the price of all this goodness. We expect the new Hyundai Venue to be the priced at the higher end of the spectrum in the segment it competes in.
