The dual-tone treatment will also extend to the seats and the door panels, while rear AC vents are also likely. The big takeaway from the upcoming Hyundai Venue will be the Blue Link connectivity features that will be a first for the automaker in India. The system will come with a dedicated smartphone app and an eSIM from service provider Vodafone-Idea for in-car internet connectivity. The new connectivity system will have 10 India-only features with a total of 33 connectivity features including geo-fencing, speed alerts, SOS, panic notifications, destination sharing, and road-side assistance and so on.
Poweron the Hyundai Venue will come from the 1.0-litre T-GDi Turbo petrol engine along with the 1.4-litre turbo diesel on offer. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic, while there will also be the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic available as an option.
The new Hyundai Venue is slated for launch on May 21, 2019 and will take on a host of offerings including the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and the Mahindra XUV300. While the Vitara Brezza has been the sales benchmark in the segment, it will be interesting to see if the Venue will be able to attract similar volumes.
