Setia Motors, the sole distributor of Hyundai vehicles in Brunei, has unveiled the all-new Hyundai Venue at its showroom in Beribi.
The sports utility vehicle (SUV) is designed to fit the needs of the cost-conscious younger generation who are after expressive design, practicality and smart technology at an affordable price.
At first glance, the small SUV has almost a spitting image of the Hyundai Creta. Taking on the subcompact hatchback segment, the stylish Venue definitely marks its own territory with its distinctive boxy design.
Although the Venue is the smallest of the Hyundai SUV segment, the Venue still stands tall with the help of its boxy body shape and higher ride height.
Furthermore, the front fascia of the Venue has an aggressive undertone to it giving the vehicle a sportier look.
The new design language also includes Hyundai-esque elements such as its front cascading grille, LED lights and cube-shaped headlamps that are also found on the Hyundai Kona.
Whereas, the side profile of the SUV showcases a solid and full volume wheel arch and strong character line combining emotion and practicality.
The Venue rides on 17-inch alloy wheels along with the 15-inch standard wheels.
Moreover, the five-seater injects a dose of youthfulness to its exterior and it comes with 11 striking colours that will definitely have heads turn the moment the car drives by the road.
The SUV further ante up the exterior with its two-tone colour scheme that is available on the Phantom Black and Denim trim level giving the car a bit more personality.
As you enter the car, the five-seater has a surprisingly ample interior given its small size.
The SUV benefits from its boxy design providing passengers excellent vision, a spacious interior comfortably seating four passengers and large luggage space.
Adding to its flexibility, the Venue comes standard with a 60/40 split flat-folding backseat to maximize utility while still offering ample room for the rear passengers.
During the launch, the Venue was praised by guests for its comfortable seats and clean, understated cabin design, offering a choice of gray and black interior that soothes the eyes.
Furthermore, the interior of the vehicle is designed with high-quality materials all-around and advanced technology which includes an impressive 8-inch touchscreen which also connects both Apple CarPlay and Android that will certainly resonate with the tech-driven consumers.
Moreover, the multi-dimensional and sporty instrument cluster makes information easily visible while the three-dial air conditioning controller offers user-friendly and intuitive control.
Under the hood, the Venue boasts an efficient Gamma 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that powers out 122 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque – packing plenty of punch for a small engine.
On top of that, its Multi-Port Injection (MPI) engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission or automatic. The Venue is designed for a fun and dynamic drive.
The Venue comes with a long list of safety and driver assistance features which includes six airbags, a rear parking assist system, high structural safety (AHSS & HSS), forward collision avoidance, blind-spot collision warning, lane keep assist, high beam assist and rear cross-traffic collision warning and many more.
Overall, the all-new Hyundai Venue conveys a fun, yet functional design in a versatile and modern compact package. The SUV is definitely super cute and packed with personality.
Venue offers adaptability to the urban entrepreneur lifestyle many consumers experience in today’s fast-paced environment.
It is available in Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Galactic Gray, Cosmic Gray, Phantom Black, The Denim Exotic Green, Acid Yellow, Lava Orange, Fiery Red and Intense Blue.
In attendance to launch the Hyundai Venue were General Manager of Setia Motors James Chin and representatives from Korea Hyundai Motor Company, Ji Ho Son, A Ra Cho and Sohee Kim.
