The rivalry in the subcompact SUV space is heating up with the debut of the 2023 TaTA Nexon. Now, the Hyundai Venue and Venue N Line have been updated to offer advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Hyundai has also made changes to the transmission options for the turbo-petrol variants of both these models.

Updated Prices

It seems the new ADAS tech is limited to the top-spec SX(O) variant of the Hyundai Venue and the N8 variant of the Venue N Line. It’s important to note that safety assistance systems are not available in the Knight edition of the Venue. Here are the revised prices for these ADAS-equipped models:

Venue 1-litre Turbo Petrol

Variants Updated Price Old Price Difference
SX (O) Rs 12.44 lakh Rs 12.35 lakh + Rs 9,000
SX (O) DCT Rs 13.23 lakh Rs 13.03 lakh + Rs 20,000

Venue 1.5-litre Diesel

Variants Updated Price Old Price Difference
SX (O) MT Rs 13.19 lakh Rs 12.99 lakh + Rs 20,000

Venue N Line

Variants Updated Price Old Price Difference
N8 MT Rs 12.96 lakh N.A. N.A.
N8 DCT Rs 13.75 lakh Rs 13.66 lakh + Rs 9,000

Note:- Each variant listed above is also available in a dual-tone exterior for an extra Rs 15,000.

The Venue is not only the first subcompact SUV to come with ADAS tech but also the most affordable model to offer such features (up to Rs 15,000 cheaper than the starting ADAS-equipped variant of the Honda City), let’s see how Hyundai has prepared its sub-4m offering to compete with its segment rivals, including the updated Nexon.

The Venue’s ADAS suite still lacks features such as automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, indicating that the current ADAS kit on the subcompact SUV adheres to ADAS level 1 technology.

Other safety features already offered on the Hyundai subcompact SUV include up to six airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control (ESC), tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors and hill-hold assist.

Powertrain Update

Hyundai Venue

Hyundai has discontinued the option of intelligent manual transmission (iMT, manual without clutch pedal),) for the 1-liter turbo petrol (120PS and 172Nm) variants of both the Venue and Venue N Line. Instead, they now come with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) remains available. Here, the turbo-petrol variants have become more affordable for the one variant of the Venue not mentioned above, while the Venue N Line gets more affordable as whole since it had been limited to the DCT option alone.

Here’re the new prices for the Hyundai turbo-petrol MT variants:

Venue 1-litre Turbo Petrol

Variants New MT Price Old iMT Price Difference
S (O) Rs 10.32 lakh Rs 10.44 lakh Rs 16,000
SX(O) Rs 12.44 lakh Rs 12.35 lakh + Rs 9,000

The Venue SX(O) turbo-petrol MT gets pricier over the iMT, unlike the S(O), as it now offers ADAS as well which adds a higher premium than the cost savings of the three-pedal manual.

Venue N Line

Variants New MT prices DCT prices Difference
N6 Rs 12 lakh Rs 12.80 lakh + Rs 80,000
N8 Rs 12.96 lakh Rs 13.75 lakh + Rs 79,000

Note:- Each variant listed above, other than Venue S(O), is also available in a dual-tone exterior for an extra Rs 15,000.

This new transmission option hence makes the Venue N Line more accessible by up to Rs 80,000. The Hyundai Venue’s sportier version with the 1-litre turbo petrol engine.

Other engine options for the regular Venue include 1.2-litre petrol engine (83PS and 114Nm) mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine (116PS and 250Nm), which only comes paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. The top-spec SX(O) variant of the Venue does not get the naturally-aspirated petrol engine option.


The Hyundai Venue takes on the likes of the Maruti breeza , Kia,SonetTata Nexon facelift, Mahindra XUV300Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite. The Venue N Line on the other hand competes with Turbo Sport variants of the Mahindra XUV300.
