Recently, a video which shows the Hyundai Venue overcoming a mild off-road trail has been released on the Internet. Read on to discover the details
The Hyundai Venue is one of the most popular sub-4-metre compact SUVs in the Indian auto market. The vehicle competes against the segment leader, the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and the upcoming Kia Sonet. The Hyundai Venue is not a hardcore off-road SUV at all. It comes with an FWD system which helps the SUV tackle small obstacles. Below is a video which shows how the Venue performs in a mild off-road trail.
The Hyundai Venue featured in this video is a 1.4-diesel version which has been discontinued as a result of the BS6 emission standards. This motor has given way to a BS6-compliant 1.5-litre diesel motor which is mated to only an MT unit. On the Hyundai Venue, this motor can generate 100 BHP against 240 Nm; in the meanwhile, on the new Creta and the Verna, it is available in a higher state of tune: 115 BHP against 250 Nm.
The video shows the Hyundai Venue operate on a dirt road. The surroundings in the video reveal that it was shot during the monsoon season and all of the surroundings are green. Because of the rain, the road is covered with small slush pits. The Venue has been driven aggressively over these parts and even manages to tail out at several places. Nevertheless, the front wheel, most of the time, struggle to get a grip on such hard terrains. Thanks to the electronic aids, the car avoids getting out of control. The driver can be seen to have fun with the vehicle on this empty road.
The Hyundai Venue manages to overcome the mild off-road trail with ease.
Hyundai cars are well-known for being well-equipped; the Hyundai Venue is not an exception. It is packed with a wide array of top-notch features, the most outstanding of which is the BlueLink system. The vehicle receives its power from three motor option: a 1.0-litre turbo gasoline burner, a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit and a 1.5-litre oil unit. The first one can produce 120 PS against 171 Nm and is mated to a 6-speed MT, 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed iMT. The second one can generate 83 PS against 114 Nm and is paired with a 5-speed MT. The last one is good for 100 PS against 240 Nm and coupled with only a manual transmission.
