Hyundai Venue has become extremely popular in India since its launch, and for good reason. Check out how the Venue compact SUV performs in a heavy cargo loading test.
Hyundai’s cheapest sub-four-metre SUV, the Venue, has been enjoying great success in the Indian market for quite some time now. It officially went on sale on May 21, the Hyundai Venue has turned out to be a big hit in the segment right from its launch. The SUV became so popular that it beat its rivals like Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, etc. to take the top spot of the monthly sales chart for a short period of time. One of the main reasons contributing to the success of the Hyundai Venue is its great space and practicality, despite its sub-four-metre proportions. Here is a video from CarsPlusBikes which shows how the Venue SUV perform in a special cargo loading test. Watch it here!

The new Hyundai Venue offers a combination of engines and transmission options on-board. The Venue in the video uses a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that churns out 120 PS of max power and 171 Nm of torque. Apart from this engine option, the Hyundai Venue can be had with either a 1.2-litre petrol motor or a 1.4-litre turbocharged diesel unit. While the former can deliver 83 PS and 115 Nm of torque, the diesel burner produces 90 PS of power and 220 Nm of torque. The Venue is available with a range of transmission options, thereby giving the car quite a host of engine-gearboxes combos. While the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol mill comes mated to a 6-speed MT and a 7-speed DCT unit, the 1.2-litre model is paired with a 5-speed MT and the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol trim makes it with a 6-speed manual unit.
The Venue compact SUV offers a decent boot capacity irrespective of its sub-four-metre length mark.
In the cargo-carrying test, the SUV was loaded with sacks of seeds evenly at both the front and rear. The main task here is to distribute the weight equally to avoid taking a toll on the handling quality and the suspension of the car. As seen in the video, the Venue was being driven with approximately 350 kilograms of seeds and 2 passengers. The Venue owner has revealed in the clip that even with such heavy weight, they it wasn't tough to drive the car around. In fact, he had driven the Venue around for nearly 50 kilometres without facing any difficulties.
This kind of test was conducted by the owner of the vehicle at their own discretion. We do not recommend doing it. If not loaded properly, the uneven weight allocation could lead to some serious damage to the vehicle. In case you have to carry some heavy cargo, kindly go for professional help instead of hauling it in your personal vehicle.
