Quirky Design that Screams Posh
The Venue compact SUV offers the perfect amalgamation of the classic and innovative. On one hand, it retains features from the classic Hyundai models like the huge front grille, sleek indicators, and a muscular stance. The new grille however resonates with the original stepped grille with a twist. That twist is the automatic projector headlamps with cornering abilities and also the new projector fog lamps. On the other hand, innovations like the new LED DRLs and silver skid plates at the bottom give the vehicle the IT feel.
Dual-tone color scheme, chrome door handles on the side, and LED Taillamps that shine like crystals, on the rear enhance and give it a posh look. The 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels give a sporty and rugged stance to the car. These features together give the Venue the luxury car look.
Stunning Cabin Braced with OE Telematics
The compact SUV is equipped with the latest, best-in-class technology called OE Telematics that will be working via remote control. The Venue is braced with Internet Connectivity which is the first in the segment. Features like the wireless charging facility, automatic cruise control, and day/night automatic IRVMs are provided for the added tech comfort. An electric sunroof makes everything better with the clean crisp air and ample sunlight it brings in.
The cabin is beautifully adorned with a dual-tone color scheme and leather-fabric upholstery. The five-seat configured cabin is jam-packed with stunning features like the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, air purifier, controls mounted on the steering, supervision cluster, and the best Arkamys sound system with 4 speakers and 2 tweeters for a seamless driving experience. To keep up with the sporty stance, the steering wheel and the gear knob are leather-wrapped. Comfort comes first and Venue gets that. 60:40 split seats for the extra space, rear AC vents, adjustable front, and rear seat headrests, and rear seat armrest cup holder just make everything better.
