Hyundai drops turbo and price for new entry-level Venue

Charl Bosch

Specification remains intact despite the change up front.

New entry-level Venue rides on 15-inch steel wheels with plastic covers as standard.

With two years having passed since its South African market debut, Hyundai has revised its smash-hit Venue line-up with the introduction of a new entry-level variant.

Bootlid spoiler no longer features.

Retaining the Motion designation, the biggest difference resides up front where the 1.0 T-GDI engine makes way for a normally aspirated 1.2 outputting 61kW/114Nm. Drive, while still routed to the front wheels as before, does so through a five-speed manual gearbox only.

In terms of features, the Motion does without alloy wheels and keyless entry, but keeps the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Also standard are all around electric windows, electric mirrors, the multi-function steering wheel, rear parking sensors and a reverse camera. Safety items include dual front airbags and ABS with EBD.
