Similarly, there's no mention of all-wheel drive; the Venue is front-drive only, with Hyundai touting a Snow powertrain mode to help in inclement weather. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine puts out 120hp and 172Nm of torque, which is 10hp more than the petrol-engined Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300, and interestingly enough, 21Nm more than even the Hyundai Creta's 1.4-litre petrol. The SUV will be priced somewhere in between Rs 8 lakh to Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom). It has more sharper edges than the Venue, in the front and rear.

Hyundai is finally entering the sub-compact SUV segment with this auto, the Venue. The India reveal of the new Hyundai Venue coincides with the global debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

Originally showcased in 2017 as the Carlino concept, the Venue looks bold and boxy like the concept.

The Venue's wheelbase measures shorter than 100 inches, about 3 inches shorter than the Kona.

Dimensions - Major differences line in terms of dimensions. The Venue has indicators mounted on the edge of the bonnet while the projector headlamps surrounded by LED DRLs are lower down on the front bumper.

Ubisoft pledges over $500000 to Notre-Dame restoration efforts
Almost $1 billion has been raised to rebuild the house of worship - with France's three richest families pledging $565 million. Remarkably, no one was killed in the fire, after firefighters and church officials evacuated the site quickly during a Mass.

Hyundai will be banking on four new launches in 2019.

Inside the cabin, the Venue showcases a fresh dashboard layout as compared to other Hyundai models sold in India. While the steering wheel and instrumentation seem like the regular Hyundai high quality fare, unique is the new centre console arrangement. Two USB chargers, 17-inch wheels, heated seats, navigation, and automatic climate control are on the options list. The instrument cluster gets an analogue tachometer and speedometer split by a digital MID (multi-info display).

The Hyundai Venue will be sold with three engine options- 1.0-litre Kappa T-GDI turbocharged direct-injection petrol, 1.2-litre Kappa naturally-aspirated petrol, and 1.4-litre CRDI turbocharged diesel.

The SUV will get two petrol and one diesel engine which will be mated to two manual and one dual-clutch automatic transmission in various permutations. The diesel engine is a familiar 1.4-litre turbo diesel. The impressive thing here - at least, on paper - is Hyundai's Blue Link system that makes its debut with the Venue. This tech uses an eSIM from Vodafone-Idea for internet access as well as access to vehicle telematics via the BlueLink smartphone application. The services are grouped into seven categories viz. Safety, Security, Remote, Vehicle Relation Management, Location Based Services, Alert Services and Voice Recognition services. Models equipped with a sunroof will get a contrast roof color in black or white depending on the body color. It is flanked by squarish central air vents with rounded corners.

Hyundai Venue gets a 1.0 liter, 3 cylinder petrol engine offering 120 bhp power and 171 Nm torque and a 1.2 liter, 4 cylinder petrol engine offering 83 bhp power and 114 Nm torque. ESC could be offered as standard while hill-hold assist could be available in higher variants. The safety suite comprises ABS with EBD, 6 airbags, ESC with VSM, HAC, BA, and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
