2019 Hyundai Venue History
Hyundai has already started testing this new car in the country. Spy shots of the Hyundai Venue testing have surfaced some time back and we had shared them first with you. With these new shots of the car coming to light, the car looks like it’s is taking a lot of styling and design inspiration from the bigger Hyundai Creta. The car is looking to shape up more in-tune with the Hyundai families design in mind. The rear tail lamps look like they are smaller and sleeker versions of the Creta’s tail lamps.
The below pictures of the car are from the rear. The car has been spotted testing again. we will add here that the car has a great amount of inspiration from the Creta, and some might look at it as a mini Hyundai Creta.
The below images will give one a proper understanding of the design and size of the car. The car looks like it’s trying to keep up with the Carlino concepts squared-off edges and boxy and tall looks. The rear looks inspired by the Creta to no end and the front is a new face with a new grille design.
On the inside, we can see that the car gets Creta like seats and a big storage area in the center console. The seats have adjustable headrests and the car has a full-on black interior.

2019 Hyundai Venue Design
The compact SUV concept was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo as the Hyundai Carlino concept. This SUV had boxy styling. Something normally associated with the traditional looks one wants in an SUV. The final product from the concept’s design is cleaner with sleeker and better lines. That is what even the Creta is all about. If you look at the front of this SUV, you shall notice the large front grille and sleek headlamps.
If we see the spy shots we can see a lot of the design cues from the concept vehicle have been carried on into the production version of the car. The Hyundai Venue looks like it will be borrowing space and practicality in design from its elder sibling the Hyundai Creta. This is Hyundai’s first compact SUV and Hyundai has delayed its MUV plan to get the one faster. There will be some elements from the Carlino concept; however, this will be an all-new SUV in design. The Hyundai Venue will have technology, function and fashion as it three important pillars. The wheel arches are muscular too.
The design while being new will be heavily inspired by the elder sibling, the Hyundai Creta. The Venue appears to have a lot of Creta design in its window, design profile, and roof rails. It also appears have got new alloy wheels which will benefit the distinguishing this car from it’s an elder sibling, the Creta. Under the camouflage, we can see that the wheel arches are a bit more aggressive and make the car look wider. Hyundai has been gaining ground in every segment of the market and beating some in important segments.
2019 Hyundai Venue Interior
The Hyundai Venue will have macho looks and not a crossover like the design. The Carlino concept showed squarish wheel arches, large size wheels, high ground clearance (at least 195mm) and aggressive styling. The Venue will be a vehicle for daily work use on weekdays and adventure trips on the weekend. So, it will have good space in both the rows and even the boot space should be better than the competition (Just what Hyundai did with the XCent).
On the inside, it has good enough space in both rows. Hyundai has been focusing on enhancing the rear seat space on most of its products, like the Grand i10, i20 and the XCent. The boot size too is large enough for a vehicle of this segment. One of the best bits is the features on offer. Hyundai is offering best-in-class features. The Hyundai Venue seating capacity is for 5 people only.
The car gets a new dashboard with crisper lines than the large and flowing Creta dashboard. It gets the same infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The car gets a good amount of storage space too. The Venue could also get a sunroof and 6 airbags in its top variant. This is a good safety measure and also something Hyundai should offer as Mahindra is offering 7 airbags on the upcoming XUV300.
2019 Hyundai Venue Specifications
Hyundai has announced that the Venue gets a 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine which makes 116bhp of power. This is the same engine that does duty on the i20 abroad. With Ford offering the Ecoboost engine on the Ecosport. This is an exciting engine for the Indian market. Tata Nexon has been doing well in the Indian market with its petrol engine. Possibly, this is an example that Hyundai shall be offering lesser power for better mileage. This engine comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission and there is an automatic or AMT on offer too.
In the diesel, there is the 1.4-liter diesel producing about 95-100bhp of power. The Hyundai Venue is sold with these two engines. There is a six-speed manual and even a six-speed automatic transmission that is offered on both the engines. That is when the compact SUV segment gets something new. There is an option for the petrol automatic but no diesel automatic at the moment.

In terms of diesel, the performance is good and it does stand out. This is an apt pick for the enthusiasts. 1.0-litre turbo petrol and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Hyundai has a strong product in its hand.

The Hyundai Venue competes with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Honda WRV, Ford Ecosport and the upcoming Mahindra XUV300. This is one segment that is on the rise and at the moment is one of the fastest-growing. Hyundai Venue will add more variety for car buyers and an opportunity to upgrade to an SUV instead of a premium hatchback. Hyundai’s strategy will be to price the vehicle at par with Maruti Suzuki and at the same time even offer more added value for its compact SUV. This has what Hyundai has been targeting with its new products. The competition has now become stiff as other compact SUVs have now upped the game.
