All-new Hyundai Venue officially unveiled

All-new Hyundai Venue officially unveiled

Aiming for an attractive starting price, Hyundai has also given the Venue an option of a naturally aspirated petrol engine.

"It's pretty darn small but it's a flawless entry-level vehicle for someone who might have, in the past, only had sedans to choose from", Hyundai America COO Brian Smith said in an interview with CNBC's Phil LeBeau from the New York International Auto Show on Wednesday. The diesel engine is a familiar 1.4-litre turbo diesel. It will be offered only on the top variant trims and with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch automatic. The side profile, however, looks familiar and the Venue has hints of Creta's design, albeit in a compact body.

The auto has been spied testing in India on multiple occasions. These should put the Hyundai Venue's fuel efficiency figures on par with most of its compact SUV rivals, barring the Vitara Brezza, which, with a certified efficiency figure of 24.3kpl, continues to lead on this front. For the connectivity, the company has tied up with Vodafone-Idea India for embedded SIM.

Surprise! Apple and Qualcomm just settled: Is a 5G iPhone coming soon?
The iPhone used to rely entirely on Qualcomm's chips, but from 2016 Apple started using rival Intel's modem chips in some models. The two companies have been at odds since Apple ordered its suppliers to stop paying patent royalty fees to Qualcomm in 2017.

The Venue slots under the Kona and measures 158.9 inches (4,036 mm) long, 69.7 inches (1,770 mm) wide and 61.6 inches (1565 mm) tall with a wheelbase that spans 99.2 inches (2,520 mm). But the Venue is 20mm narrower and 50mm shorter than the Maruti. The massive cascading grille takes prominence up front with the chrome mesh grille, while the split headlamps look in place and come with projector lens on the top variants. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant functionality is part of Hyundai's Blue Link system, through which app you can now remote start the auto including activating the rear-window and side-mirror defrosters, if equipped. It allows you to remotely control functions like engine start/stop, climate control, door lock/unlock, horn honk and light flash and find my vehicle. It even supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

In terms of features, it gets single-zone climate control, electric sunroof, cruise control, voice recognition, rear AC vents, a cooled glove box, wireless charger, air purifier, Arkamys sound system, a 12V socket, two USB ports and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls. Hyundai hasn't mentioned power but said the Venue should return up to 33 mpg combined.

In Australia it will be powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine matched to either a six-speed manual or a conventional six-speed automatic transmission. This three-cylinder motor will be available in its higher output iteration, which makes 120PS and 172 Nm. The other petrol engine is the familiar 1.2-litre unit found on hatchbacks like the Elite i20 and Grand i10. For now, the only gearbox available with the Venue diesel will be a 6-speed manual. Other safety features that will be offered include hill assist control, electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, ISOFIX child seat mounts and brake assist too.
