    Hyundai Venue

    Updated - August 9, 2021: This article includes some changes in variants as Hyundai reshuffled the lineup a bit and moved some features around. This also includes the latest prices applicable for August 2021.

    What Are The Pros And Cons Of Hyundai Venue Petrol?

    The pros or advantages of Venue petrol are:

    • Turbo petrol engine has a great torque-to-weight ratio and a wide torque band for great drivability and minimal gear changes
    • Compared to an automatic, the mechanically simple ACMT (auto-clutch manual transmission) does 80% of the work in stop-and-go traffic at no extra cost
    • Option of a cheaper 1.2-litre normal petrol engine with adequate performance
    • A very long list of style, functional, entertainment and safety features

    The Hyundai Venue petrol has the following shortcomings or problems:

    • The price jump from the 1.2L normal to the 1.0L turbo is quite high.
    • Hyundai’s new design language for the Venue is polarizing opinions.
    • Poor feature distribution. Venue reserves even some basic features like a rear washer/wiper, a rear armrest and a split-folding rear seatback for the top-of-the-line SX (O) variant.
    • With the automatic, you can’t get the fully-loaded SX (O) variant. That means you can’t get it with the extra airbags, split rear seats, rear armrest, rear washer and wiper. However, it does offer alloy wheels, which are super easy to upgrade post-purchase and sunroof.
    • S (O) automatic and SX turbo MT/ACMT now cost more than Rs. 10 lakh. In most states, it qualifies to enter the higher tax bracket for on-road price calculation.
    • Some of you may find Venue 1.2’s performance underwhelming - especially after test driving a turbo petrol car. It’s strictly adequate but suitable for city use.
    • Dual-clutch automatic transmissions have a questionable record for long-term reliability. No DCT has had smooth sailing in India's harsh climatic and driving conditions.
    • No GNCAP crash test score yet. Meanwhile, the Nexon and XUV300 are bragging about their 5-star report card.

    What Are The Latest August 2021 Prices Of The Hyundai Venue Petrol?

    The Venue petrol is available in a total of 7 variants and 4 engine-transmission combinations.

    The E, S, S Plus variants are available with a 1.2-litre normal petrol engine and a manual transmission and they cost between Rs. 6.99 and 8.65 lakh. The turbo petrol with a full manual is only available in SX trim for Rs. 10.07 lakh. With the auto-clutch, you can have this engine in 3 variants - S (O), SX and SX (O) for prices ranging from Rs. 9.11 to 11.36 lakh. The turbo petrol engine is also available with a DCT automatic in S (O) and SX Plus variants for 10.01 and 11.69 lakh, respectively.

    Hyundai Venue 1.2 Petrol E vs S Variant

    The S variant of the Venue petrol 1.2 costs Rs. 7.77 lakh, which is about Rs. 78,000 more than the base E variant. For the additional cost, you get an infotainment system with steering-mounted controls, power mirrors, rear defogger, rear AC vents, remote central locking, rear power windows, rear parcel tray and a front armrest.

    While it doesn’t quite justify the jump in price, the Venue 1.2 S has a decent balance of good-to-have and must-have features. If you can afford stretching your budget to accommodate the S variant, then you should because it’ll offer a much better ownership experience.

    Hyundai Venue 1.2 Petrol S vs S Plus Variant

    With the Venue’s 1.2L petrol engine, you can also grab the S Plus variant. This trim costs Rs. 8.65 lakh, which is almost Rs. 88,000 more than the 1.2 S. It adds the following notable features:

    • Automatic halogen projector headlamps
    • Halogen projector fog lamps
    • LED tail lamps
    • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment
    • Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    • Height-adjustable Driver Seat
    • Power folding outside mirrors
    • Auto AC
    • LED DRLs
    • Leather-wrapped Steering

    This variant again costs just a bit more than it should but it’s not too overpriced for its additional features. The S is still a better value for money but the S Plus 1.2’s equipment may make you consider this option.

    Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol S (O) Variant - Base Turbo Petrol

    Now, let’s step back a little on the variant scale and check out the Venue turbo S (O), the most affordable turbo petrol variant of the Venue. It costs Rs. 9.11 lakh with the auto-clutch manual transmission (ACMT) and Rs. 10.01 lakh with the DCT automatic. The Venue automatic is about Rs. 90,000 more expensive than the turbo ACMT.

    The Venue S (O) turbo gets the following notable features on top of what the S 1.2 gets:

    • Halogen projector headlamps
    • LED DRLs
    • ESC (with automatic only)
    • Hill hold (with automatic only)

    This is about to get a little confusing. So brace yourself.

    The S (O) trim is not available with the 1.2L normal petrol engine. Therefore, it’s not possible to exactly pinpoint the premium you’re paying just for the engine upgrade over the 1.2. So, we’ll have to do some extra math.

    Also Read - 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 Nios vs Hyundai Venue - Price, Specs, Features, Mileage Comparison

    Compared to the S 1.2, the Venue S (O) turbo ACMT is about Rs. 1.34 lakh more expensive. Based on our calculations, even with the features, extra performance from higher power and torque output and the convenience of the ACMT, the S (O) doesn’t quite close the price gap.

    With the DCT automatic also, the S (O) doesn’t manage to justify the upgrade over the S 1.2. Moreover, the Venue turbo automatic now costs more than Rs. 10 lakh, which will end up costing quite a bit more in most states because of the higher taxes applicable on cars costing above Rs. 10 lakh (ex-showroom.)

    The only situation in which we’d recommend the S (O) turbo is if you don’t want to stretch the budget any further but you want that extra performance. Because, you will have to drive the car fairly often on the highways. The 1.2 petrol will struggle to maintain expressway speeds for long periods of time, especially with a full load. If you want the performance of the turbo petrol, then consider one of the higher variants to get better value for your money.

    Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol S (O) vs SX Variant

    The Hyundai Venue SX turbo costs Rs. 10.07 lakh whether you choose the ACMT or the full manual transmission. This is about Rs. 96,000 more than the S (O) turbo ACMT. for this additional sum, you get cruise control, auto AC, touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, power-folding mirrors, sunroof, auto headlamps, 16-inch steel style wheels, and cooled glovebox.

    Between the two transmission options, we strongly suggest you buy the auto-clutch manual (ACMT). It gives complete control over the gear selection while still allowing you to rest your left leg as you don’t have to modulate the clutch in stop-and-go city traffic. In fact, because of the strong bottom-end torque, you can even directly start off in second gear and crawl without any accelerator input. It works well at least on flat surfaces. So, you can start off from a dead stop and go up to 50kmph with just one foot. The bottom end torque from the turbo petrol engine also allows you to drive it in crawling traffic with just the brake pedal.

    So, it essentially does 80% of the job we expect an automatic transmission to do for no additional cost. Buy the full manual only if you absolutely need full control and need to slip and drop the clutch to get out of a sticky situation.

    As far as the features go, the Venue SX turbo completely justifies jump over the S (O) turbo. In fact, from a value-for-money standpoint, it even justifies the upgrade from the base, 1.2 E variant. The only problem is the Rs. 10 lakh-plus ex-showroom cost, which will lead to higher taxes in most states. Even with the slightly higher taxes, the SX turbo is worth the upgrade if you have the budget for it and want a well-rounded ownership experience. The SX turbo is our top-recommended variant for Venue petrol manual buyers.

    Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol SX vs SX Dual-Tone Variant

    The SX dual-tone variant of the Venue costs Rs. 10.37 lakh, which is Rs. 30,000 more than the SX mono-tone. For this additional cost, you get a dual-tone contrast roof, leather + fabric upholstery, leather front centre armrest and leather door armrest. This is a cosmetic upgrade, so we'll let you decide if you should upgrade to this option. However, from a value standpoint, it justifies the premium. Note that the SX dual-tone is only available with the auto-clutch transmission.

    Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol S (O) Automatic vs SX Plus Automatic Variant

    Now moving to the Venue automatic, teh SX Plus DCT costs Rs. 11.69 lakh, which is almost Rs. 1.7 lakh more than the S (O) DCT automatic. For this additional cost, you get all of the features you get with the SX turbo ACMT and then a few.

    Compared to the SX ACMT, the SX Plus automatic loses the style steel wheels and gets proper alloy wheels. In addition, it also gets tyre pressure monitoring system, keyless entry with push-button start/stop, air purifier, wireless phone charger, air purifier and chrome door handles.

    For Venue automatic buyers, the 1.7 lakh price jump over the S (O) DCT automatic is easily justified with the SX Plus. So, the SX Plus automatic is our top-recommended variant for Venue automatic buyers.

    The SX Plus automatic with dual-tone costs another Rs. 17,400 and it gets you dual-tone exterior, leather+fabric upholstery, leather front center armrest and leather door armrests. For these features, the price is justified. So, you can upgrade to this if you want these features.

    The top-spec SX (O) variant of the Venue with the turbo petrol and ACMT costs Rs. 11.36 lakh and is about Rs. 1.29 lakh more expensive than the SX ACMT. For this additional cost, you get side and curtain airbags, TPMS, ESC, hill hold, keyless entry with push-button start stop, rear washer/wiper, rear armrest, split rear seatback, 16-inch alloy wheels, air purifier, and flat-bottom steering wheel.

    The price more than justified for the upgrade and the SX (O) is a total value for money package. However, a good chunk of these features are not must-have. If you want the extra safety features, then this variant is worth the upgrade.

    Which Variant Of The Hyundai Venue Petrol Offers The Most Value For Money?

    Let’s first tackle the manual transmission variants starting with the 1.2-litre engine. If you intend to drive mostly in the city, then this engine will offer adequate performance. But, for the highways, this may not be enough. Between the E, S and S Plus variants, the S variant makes the most sense as it offers a decent balance of features, although the value-for-money quotient is not that great. If you can stretch for the S Plus variant and this is going to be your primary car, then this is worth upgrading from a VFM standpoint. Buying this over the S trim will also keep the itch to upgrade away for a fairly long duration.

    Coming over to the turbo petrol variants, you have the S (O), SX and SX (O) variants. Between these three, the SX variant with MT or ACMT are our top picks. While the SX (O) is also a good value for money option, it doesn’t offer many must-have features. Consider buying it for the safety features.

    In the SX variant, if you're confused between the full-manual and auto-clutch manual transmission, then we recommend you buy the ACMT version. There's no extra cost to go with the ACMT and it will also let you rest your left leg as you don’t have to modulate the clutch in tight traffic. So, it’s doing most of the work a fully-automatic transmission does for no extra cost.

    What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Hyundai Venue Petrol?

    In terms of performance, the Venue has it bang on. On one end, it has the cheaper 1.2-litre normal petrol engine, and on the other end, it has a 1.0L turbo petrol engine.

    The normal petrol is no scorcher, but has an acceptable torque-to-weight ratio for city driving. To put things in perspective, you can expect performance similar to a 1.2L petrol i20.  Even on the mileage side, its figure of 17.27kmpl is much better than the WR V’s 16.5kmpl and even better than the Brezza’s petrol MT.

    The price jump to get the turbo engine is quite high but you also get a serious boost in the Venue’s torque-to-weight ratio. Despite this fantastic performance, its mileage of 18.2kmpl is still comparable with that of the Brezza hybrid’s 18.76kmpl figure. The Kiger and Magnite turbo still have a better mileage figure of 20kmpl.

    Finally, the crown jewel of the Venue - ACMT (auto-clutch manual transmission). This option is only available with the turbo petrol engine and it’s the perfect middle ground between total control and maximum convenience. What makes it worth a serious look is its price as it’s available at no extra cost with the SX variant.

    From a reliability standpoint, there’s not much that can go wrong in this car as it’s mechanically very simple. If anything, you may find mechanical ghosts hiding in the turbo + dual-clutch automatic combination. No DCT has so far survived the harsh Indian climatic and driving conditions to prove their long-term reliability. So, the ACMT makes a strong case for itself with mechanical simplicity, convenience and total VFM pricing.
