The Hyundai Venue sub-4 meter SUV will make its global debut on April 17, 2019.
While the preview of Hyundai Venue is schedule to take place on April 17, the Korean carmaker has today unveiled its first design sketch giving us glimpse of how will it look. Branded as ‘India’s first connected SUV’, the Venue will offer several industry-first connectivity features.
Of the two sketch images of the Hyundai Venue, one is of the rear-three quarter that clearly shows squarish tail-lamps, a sculpted bumper with fake skid plate, and integrated roof spoiler. The rear windscreen area looks raked and the bulge on tail-gate too is visible. On sides, we can see prominent creases and character lines along with diamond cut alloys and roof rails; all of these give it a modern look.
As clearly visible in the sketch, the front of the vehicle features square-shaped headlamps with sleek LED DRLs on top of that. The fog lamps are integrated into bumper and we can also see skid plates here as well. And the signature Hyundai family grille – cascading – is also visible.
Coming to the vehicle’s interior, we can clearly see a dual-tone shade on the dashboard, and the seats too use two-tone colour treatment. Then you have a floating-type touchscreen nicely integrated at the middle of the dashboard surrounded by central AC vents. We can also see the round AC control buttons/display, which would give it a slightly retro-sort of an appeal. A cubby hole right above the glove box too looks pretty deep as it carries a big bottle. So overall, it looks like a modern cabin with all the necessities. Also See – Hyundai Venue to offer 33 connected car features
Hyundai Venue will most likely come with a 1.4-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engine options, which are the same that we have seen on the Elite i20. There could also be a brand new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine debuting with the Venue. Mated to a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox, this new petrol engine is expected to produce 118bhp and 170Nm.
The vehicle will be launched in May 2019, and we’ll bring you its detailed review right before that.
