The Venue is available with three engine options: a 1.2-liter petrol engine with 83 hp; a 1.5-liter diesel with 100 hp; and a 1.0-liter turbo gasoline engine with 120 hp.
The Venue’s basic shape makes it look like a scaled-down Creta, but the styling is much more flamboyant, especially the split headlight layout. Its interior is neat and the dashboard which houses the 8-inch touchscreen in height is particularly user-friendly. Hyundai has also incorporated plenty of storage for small items in the Venue cabin and even the trunk is large enough to hold two suitcases. Where the Venue loses is in the rear seat space. Legroom is far from the best in its class, and the relatively small rear windows make the cabin feel smaller than it is.
