Hyundai Venue vs rivals: Spec comparison

Hyundai has unveiled its first sub-4m SUV, the Venue. The SUV is equipped with various segment-first features and also gets a new turbocharged petrol engine coupled to an in-house developed 7-speed dual clutch transmission. But is it capable enough to take on well established rivals like the Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon? To find out, let’s compare the specifications of these sub-4 metre SUVs.

The Venue is not the longest, widest or tallest SUV here. In fact, it is among the narrowest and is the shortest in terms of height. As far as the wheelbase is concerned, at 2500mm, it is at par with the Brezza but smaller than the EcoSport and the XUV300. So it doesn’t set any new benchmarks in terms of size.

Engines: Except for the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the other sub-4m SUVs are available with both petrol and diesel engine options.

The Venue gets a 5-speed manual with the 1.2-litre engine whereas the 1.0-litre turbocharged unit can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch automatic. In fact, it is the only SUV here to offer a dual clutch transmission.

The Nexon is equipped with a 6-speed manual as standard but can be had with a 6-speed AMT as well. The EcoSport, on the other hand, is available with three transmission options. Where the 1.5-litre engine is available with a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed auto, the 1.0-litre turbocharged engine is only offered with a 6-speed manual.

ISOFIX child seat anchors, however, are available as standard only on the Maruti Brezza, XUV300 and the Nexon. The rest of the cars featured get them only on higher variants.
