Hyundai announces Venue small SUV pricing
All-new Hyundai Venue joins popular small-SUV segment from $19,990 plus on-roads
3 Sep 2019
HYUNDAI Motor Company Australia (HMCA) has announced pricing and specification for its all-new Venue small SUV, which arrives in local showrooms this month priced from $19,990 plus on-road costs.
Sitting underneath the Kona in Hyundai’s SUV line-up, the Venue will act as an effective replacement for the Accent light car, which is slowly being phased out of production, and will feature three distinct model grades.
Like other models in Hyundai’s line-up, the Venue range opens with the entry-level Go, moving up to the mid-spec Active and topping out with the Elite.
All Venues employ the same powertrain, a naturally aspirated 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol unit, tuned to develop 90kW/151Nm, while power is exclusively sent to the front wheels.
Go and Active variants come with the choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while the Elite is an auto-only affair.
Drive mode settings are featured, as is a traction mode system that helps maximise grip in sand, mud and snow.
As is the case with other HMCA offerings, the Venue has undergone local chassis and suspension tuning to deal with the less-than-perfect Australian road conditions.
All versions score an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard, along with Apple CarPlay/Andriod Auto smartphone mirroring, Bluetooth streaming and a reversing camera.
Hyundai’s Smartsense active safety suite is also standard across all models and bundles autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, driver attention warning, high-beam assist and tyre pressure monitoring.
Standard equipment in the entry-level Go includes six airbags, 15-inch steel wheels, a four-speaker sound system, cruise control, automatic dusk-sensing headlights, daytime running lights (DRLs) and a 3.5-inch LCD multi-function display.
Stepping up to the Active adds LED DRLs, rear parking sensors, 15-inch alloys, a six-speaker sound system, power-folding exterior mirrors with LED side repeaters, a front centre console armrest and a leather-appointed steering wheel and gear knob.
Moving up to the Elite adds extra safety equipment such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well as other features including 17-inch alloys, LED tail-lights, rear privacy glass, a two-tone roof and side mirrors, satellite navigation, an auto up/down driver’s power window, cloth seats with premium-finish bolsters, a front USB outlet and climate control.
Measuring 4036mm long and 1770mm wide with a 2520mm wheelbase, the Venue is 130mm shorter and 31mm narrower than the Kona with an 81mm shorter wheelbase. Luggage volume is pegged at 355 litres.
HMCA CEO JW Lee said the new Venue would representing a strong-value entry point to Hyundai’s line-up.
“The new Venue is ahead of the curve, offering customers a high level of value in a practical and well-equipped compact SUV,” he said.
“As our new range-entry model, the Venue combines the rugged looks and practical benefits of an SUV and a light car, with advanced safety technology at an attractive price point.”
