Hyundai has been slowly revealing details of its upcoming compact SUV, the Hyundai Venue that will compete with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300 and Ford Ecosport. The official reveal of the Hyundai Venue is slated for 17 April at the New York Motor Show, while it will be simultaneously unveiled in India to a bunch of motoring scribes as well.
Hyundai is planning an event on 17 and 18 April to showcase the vehicle. The ads though appear to be up already, as was seen by Twitter user Ed Kim at Times Square in New York.
The billboard in New York also reveals some details such as the Venue being offered with a dual-tone colour scheme.
Just a few days ago Hyundai showcased its connected car technology, Bluelink, which will first debut in the Hyundai Venue. During the showcase of this technology, Hyundai also unveiled some official sketches of the Venue.
There’s no clarity on the engine options that the Venue will come with, but being a sub-4 metre SUV it will have to comply with the rules of having a diesel motor of less than 1.5 litres capacity and petrol motor less than 1.2 litres.
AutocarIndia reports that it may come with a 1-litre turbo-petrol and 7-speed automatic transmission, as well as 1.4 litre diesel with a six-speed manual.
Hyundai has been teasing the vehicle for some time now. Bookings will open soon, while the official availability will be from June onwards. Expect media reviews to come in the last week of May.
