New York Auto Show - Hyundai is hoping that its new Venue will attract trendy folk that otherwise would have considered a compact SUV like the EcoSport, as well as those that might have settled for a regular hatch.
Similar in dimension to the aforementioned Ford, the Venue will be Hyundai’s most affordable SUV when it goes on sale in South Africa during the second half of 2019.
The baby crossover follows a similar design script to the Kona, with a two-tier frontal design dominated by a cascading grille and large cube headlights, but the compact also gets some funky touches like the option of a contrasting white roof colour. You can even order it in a denim inspired hue with matching interior cloth, or turn heads with an Apple Green exterior colour.
The Venue made its public debut at the New York Auto Show on Monday, where Hyundai’s US vice president of product, Mike O’Brien remarked: “The all-new Venue might be small in size, but it’s big on practicality and personality.”
While what you see here is the US-spec Venue, South Africa will get the Indian-built model, which has a different engine line-up and other minor spec differences.
