How much will you pay for the 2023 Hyundai Venue? Explore its price hike
Delhi : Hyundai Venue, a prominent competitor in the sub-four-meter SUV market, underwent a facelift in June of last year. Hyundai has since updated the SUV for MY23 with a new engine, a few minor feature changes, and a higher price. Let's check out the new Venue and see what it has to offer.
The 1.5-liter diesel engine in the Venue has recently been improved to match the Creta's engine in performance. However, the Creta's diesel engine options include an automatic transmission, whilst the Venue only offers a six-speed manual.
The power of the diesel engine has now risen by 16PS and 10Nm. Additionally, the Venue has two petrol engine choices: a 1.2-liter unit with an output of 83PS and 114Nm partnered with a five-speed manual and a 1.0-litre turbo with 120PS and 172Nm mated to a six-speed iMT or a seven-speed DCT.
Changes to Features
One of the most significant modifications is that Hyundai is now offering side airbags as standard equipment on the mid-spec S (O) trim; before, this feature was only available on the top-spec SX (O) model. The Venue N Line N6 model now has side airbags as an option.
In addition, the diesel SX variant's rear seat recliner and cupholder are now exclusive to the top-spec diesel SX (O). Other than these, the Venue's feature list hasn't seen any significant alterations.
This year's first pricing increase for The Venue has been implemented. Now, the price ranges from Rs. 7.68 lakh to Rs. 13.11 lakh (ex-showroom). The following lists the prices by variant:
The 1.0-liter turbo-petrol variants saw a uniform price increase of Rs 25,000, and there has been no price increase for the diesel variants. Prices of the 1.2-liter petrol variants have increased by up to Rs 14,300.
The redesigned Hyundai Venue is still in competition with other three- to four-meter SUVs including the Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Brezza, Renault Kiger, and Nissan Magnite.
