We’ve already brought you pricing for the new Hyundai Venue ahead of its launch in South Africa, and now we can add full specifications for the five-strong local range.
As we pointed out in that earlier story, each of the five variants is powered by the Korean firm’s turbocharged 1,0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine. Here, it offers 88 kW at 6 000 r/min and 172 N.m from 1 500 to 4 000 r/min. Sipping from a 45-litre petrol tank, the Venue will consume 6,5 L/100 km in six-speed manual guise and 6,9 L/100 km in seven-speed dual-clutch form, says Hyundai.
Offered in six exterior colours, the baby SUV line-up will start with the entry-level Motion trim level, with the Fluid specification slotting in the middle (both will be available with the aforementioned choice of cog-swappers). The range-topping Glide variant will be offered exclusively in dual-clutch form.
Base Motion models will ship standard with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, Isofix child-seat anchors, manual air-conditioning, a basic radio system (with Bluetooth), a multifunction steering wheel, black cloth seats and keyless entry.
Fluid variants will furthermore gain curtain airbags, a touchscreen infotainment system (with Apple CarPlay), automatic headlamps, electric folding side mirrors, 16-inch alloys, a dark chrome grille, rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, partial leather upholstery and cruise control.
The flagship Glide model, meanwhile, will boast static-bending headlamps, LED daytime running lights, LED taillamps, front foglamps, automatic air-conditioning and push-button start.
All models feature a three-year/45 000 km service plan along with Hyundai’s seven-year/200 000 km warranty (comprising a five-year/150 000 km warranty and an additional two-year/50 000 km powertrain warranty).
The Venue is produced in South Korea and India, with SA-spec models imported from the latter.
