Hyundai has launched the much-awaited sub-compact SUV, the Venue. Loaded to the brim with features, it’s the first made-in-India ‘Connected’ SUV and is all set to take on the competition. The Venue is priced between Rs 6.50 lakh and Rs 11.11 lakh (ex-showroom), the Venue competes with the Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport and Tata Nexon. So let’s dive into the spec sheet first and find out where it stands viz-a-viz its main rivals.

Will it be easy on the Pocket?

All prices ex-showroom, Mumbai.

Hyundai has priced the Venue from Rs 6.50 lakh to Rs 11.11 lakh (ex-showroom India), which is the cheapest in the competition. While the Tata Nexon grabs the second title of being the most aggressively priced sub-four metre SUV in the country, Mahindra’s XUV300 is at the opposite end of the price spectrum. The current segment leader, the Vitara Brezza, gets full marks for competitiveness.

A simple answer to that is no. It’s not the biggest, tallest or the most spacious SUV in its segment, on paper at least. But Hyundai has got the basics right with the Venue. All these SUVs have more or less similar dimensions; however at closer inspection, the picture gets much clearer. The Venue is as long as the Vitara Brezza and the XUV300 but is behind the Ecosport, which is the longest of the lot. When it comes to width, the Venue edges past the Ecosport but is behind the others, with the XUV300 taking the crown here. As for height, the Venue is the shortest among its competition by a discernible margin, with the Ecosport being the tallest. The Hyundai Venue and the Maruti Vitara Brezza have the same wheelbase as well, with the XUV300 scoring brownie points for being the segment leader on this metric.

The Venue doesn't bring any surprise to the table with respect to engine performance, in terms of sheer numbers on paper. However, what it brings with it is a swanky 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine mated with a 7-speed DCT gearbox developed by Hyundai in-house. While we will reserve all opinions till we take it for a spin, we do see a formidable foe for the award-winning 1.0-litre Ecoboost unit in the EcoSport. On the spec sheet, the Venue’s 1.0-litre Kappa T-GDI comes a close second behind the Ford Ecosport, which makes the most power. Even the naturally aspirated 1.5-litre dragon engine of the EcoSport tops the charts when it comes to peak power. The Mahindra XUV300 is the torquiest among the bunch with nearly 30Nm more than what the competition has to offer, followed closely by the upcoming Venue. The Venue’s 1.2-litre engine lags way behind its competition in terms of power and torque, but is likely to be more frugal. Apart from the DCT (only available on the Venue), Hyundai is also offering the option of a 5-speed manual on the 1.2-litre petrol and a 6-speed manual on the turbocharged variant. The Tata Nexon is the only one to get an AMT gearbox, while the XUV300 makes do with a 6-speed manual.
