The Hyundai Venue is cheaper than most of its rivals
The much-awaited Hyundai Venue compact SUV has just been launched in the Indian market. This sub-4 meter SUV directly rivals the Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300 and the segment-leader Maruti Vitara Brezza. It was speculated that Hyundai will position this new SUV as a premium model, but the prices of the new model have surprised many. In fact, it undercuts the prices of the most of its rivals.
The Hyundai Venue is priced quite aggressively, which means it will compete with all these cars.

The base variant of the Hyundai Venue is priced at Rs 6.5 lakh, which is lesser than that of the Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport and equivalent to the Tata Nexon.
