2019 Hyundai Venue Diesel SX (O) Variant - Recommended For Safety-Conscious And For Frequent Highway Use

The top-spec 2019 Hyundai Venue diesel SX (O) costs Rs. 1.06 lakh over the SX variant. That’s again a big chunk of change. But with the SX (O) trim, you’re mostly paying for safety features as it gets 2 side/thorax airbags, 2 curtain airbags, electronic stability control, hill start assist, rear washer and wiper. The functional features include keyless entry with push-button start/stop, 60/40 split rear seat, wireless phone charger, sliding front armrest and rear armrest with cup holders.

The SX (O) variant gets a lot of safety kit and is therefore suitable for those who frequently drive on the highways. Because at high speeds, the electronic safety features are more useful than in the city. In case of a mishap, the extra airbags will also be useful as highway crashes typically occur at higher speeds.

2019 Hyundai Venue Diesel Best Variant - SX

Based on our in-depth analysis, we can say that the price difference between each of the four variants of the 2019 Hyundai Venue diesel is justified. You can’t go wrong with any variant but the SX variant still comes out on top as it offers a package that most buyers will appreciate. We really wish it had keyless entry, rear armrest, split rear seats and rear washer and wipers as well. These features would’ve completed the SX variant even if they came at a cost and pushed the ex-showroom price closer to Rs. 10.0 lakh.
