The Hyundai Venue has generated a lot of buzz for itself with the numerous teasers and sightings. Riding on the hype, Hyundai has released official design sketches of the Venue’s exterior and interior. The compact SUV will be previewed in India on 17 April, while the global unveil is scheduled at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.
The Hyundai Venue features a butch design with a squat stance. At the front, the sizeable cascading grille with chrome elements take centre stage. The two-tier headlamp setup is depicted in the design sketches with slim LED lights placed up-top while the main projector headlights sit lower below. Oval LED DRLs surround the headlamps.
The Venue features blacked-out A-pillar and roof rails, while the SUV features black body cladding all around. The rear has an understated design with rectangular taillights that get LED elements inside. The SUV features faux skid plates at the front and back. The dual-tone 16-inch alloys complete the profile of the car.
While we have already seen the interior of the Hyundai Venue in the earlier spy images, the design sketch offers a clear view of what to expect in the Venue’s cabin. Hyundai has opted for rectangular and oval shapes when it comes to interior design. The touchscreen infotainment display sits at the centre of the dashboard and gets a floating effect. The image depicts the driver using her Smartphone to interact with the infotainment system, thereby hinting at the BlueLink Connectivity features of the SUV.
The SUV features a chunky multi-functional steering wheel and a twin-pod instrument cluster with a large MID. The circular ACC controls get digital readouts, similar to the Swift and the Baleno. Interestingly, there’s a rotary dial near the gearbox, which could mean that the Venue might come with various driving modes or it could be used to control the infotainment system. The dashboard gets a clean design and dual-tone finish along with a recess above the glove box to accommodate an umbrella.
As reported earlier, the Hyundai Venue will be available with a choice of 1.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel motor. Both powertrains will be offered with a six-speed manual transmission, while an automatic gearbox is also expected at launch. The petrol motor is likely to get a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The SUV is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 8-12 lakhs (ex-showroom) and will be launched in May.
