The sub-compact SUV segment is consistently on the boom. Every major car manufacturer is competing in this segment. New car launches in this segment have only raised the standards higher. The Ford EcoSport was the creator of this segment but cars like Tata Nexon, Maruti Brezza and Hyundai Venue have made it famous. The Hyundai Venue is the second best seller for Hyundai in India, regularly doing great numbers. Find out inside about the 5 missing features on the Hyundai Venue.

5 Missing features on the Maruti Baleno

Diesel Automatic

The Hyundai Venue comes with three engine options: one diesel and two petrol.  The 1.2 litre 1997cc Kappa petrol engine produces 82bhp/6000rpm and 114.74Nm/4200rpm. Both manual and automatic transmission is present with this engine. The 1.0-litre Turbo GDi 998cc petrol engine produces 118.36bhp/6000rpm and 171.62Nm/1500-4000rpm. It comes with both iMT and DCT transmission option.

The 1.5 litre 1493cc Diesel engine produces 98.63bhp/4000rpm and 240.26Nm/1500-2750rpm. The only downside to this engine is that it only comes with a manual transmission. People who regularly drive the Diesel Venue on highways surely need some form of automatic transmission for added convenience. A DCT or a CVT transmission will be a great pairing.

Cooled Seats

Cool your car Ventilated seats

Temperature and Humidity during summer is one of the worst nightmares for car passengers in India. With an average summer temperature of 34º-40ºC, cooled seats are a blessing. In the international market, heated seats are the norm, but in India cooled seats are the way to go. The Kia Sonet comes with this feature and attracts a major chunk of customers. Hyundai too provides this feature on Verna but does not give it on the Venue as of now.

Engine Start/Stop

5 Missing features on the Hyundai Venue

Novelty features are slowly gaining attraction in the 21st century. The Nissan Micra was one of the first cars to come with an engine start/stop button. Many new cars like Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet and Tata Nexon come with this feature, but the Hyundai Venue misses out on it.  The Hyundai Venue SX Turbo Opt is the only variant which comes with this feature making other customers miss out on this feature. More about 5 Missing features on the Hyundai Venue below.

Hinglish Voice commands

5 Missing features on the Hyundai Venue

The connected car technology feature and voice commands were considered a luxury car feature until recently. Cars like MG Hector have revolutionized the market by introducing this feature under a budget. After its success, every car manufacturer has been quick to adopt it. However, not all have done the same thing. The Tata Nexon’s iRA can be controlled via English, Hindi and Hinglish commands which is life-saving. The Hyundai Venue sadly does not have this feature.

As you can see from the table clearly, the Hyundai Venue is the narrowest vehicle among its competition. The compact SUV is meant to be a 5-seater but only two adults can sit comfortably on the rear seat.  The Hyundai Venue also has only two headrests for the rear seat passengers. SUVs like Kia Sonet and Tata Nexon also come with better music systems from Bose and JBL respectively.
