The Venue has grossed over 50,000 bookings within two months of its launch. Yet again the company has got the attention of Indian motorists by providing a feature-rich compact SUV. The competitor for Venue would be the Tata Nexon, the Mahindra XUV300 and the Maruti Vitara Brezza. With the upcoming facelift of Nexon things will only get interesting for the segment.

Thoughts On The Hyundai Venue With the 1.5-litre Diesel Engine

While we think that it is a good thing that Hyundai is offering a 1.5-litre option on the Venue, but we feel the engine is a little underpowered. 105bhp and above would have been a better amount of power to have. What's the point of a diesel engine if it underperforms?
