2022 Hyundai Venue is presented in five variants of E, S, S(O), SX, and SX(O) priced between Rs 7.53 lakh to Rs 12.72 lakh (ex-showroom). We had earlier drawn attention to the features offered on the 2022 Venue S mid variant, 2022 Venue SX and the top Venue SX (O) variant. Now in the latest post, we will take a detailed look at the new Hyundai Venue E base variant.
Latest walkaround video from AutoTrend draws our attention to the striking differences in the exterior features and interior makeup of the base E Venue and other variants of the 2022 facelift version. For a start, the Venue E variant is priced at Rs 7,53,099 while the S trim comes in at a price of Rs 8,70,000. This is a price difference of Rs 1,17,000. But what is it in the S trim that sets itself apart from the base E variant?
Hyundai Venue E Base Variant – Walkaround
Where the front design is concerned, visually there is no difference between the Hyundai Venue E and S variants. They both receive the same grill design with a parametric jewel theme, split headlamp cluster and revised bonnet. However, though both the E and S trims get halogen headlamps, the S variant gets the follow-me-home feature not seen in the base trim.
On the sides, the 15 inch steel rims fitted with 195/65 section of tyres, body coloured door handles and side indicators are the same while the S trim sees the addition of body coloured ORVMs as against black ORVMs seen on the E variant. The S trim also receives roof rails, a shark fin antenna and rear defogger, all of which are found missing on the base E trim.
There is also a difference in the keys of both these variants. While the Hyundai Venue S variant gets two keys – one remote and one manual, the base S trim receives only 2 regular keys.
Hyundai Venue E – Features and Safety
The cabin of both the Hyundai Venue E and S variant also see some difference in features. The S trim sports an 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and voice recognition. It also gains a digital instrument cluster, both of which are found missing on the Venue E variant.
2022 Venue S trim receives a sound system with 4 speakers and 2 tweeters as an added feature over the E variant. There are all 4 power windows on board the 2022 Hyundai Venue S variant unlike only front power windows which are offered on the 2022 Venue E trim.
There is also no driver armrest available on the E variant which is seen on the S trim with storage function. The S trim is also set apart from the E trim as it gets rear AC vents and 2 charging sockets.
Another area where the Venue E differs from the S variant is in terms of safety. The S trim gets vehicle stability management, hill hold assist, Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), electronic stability control, park assist and HAC. The base E trim only receives dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, central locking with speed sensing lock and ISOFIX anchorage along with ABS and EBD among its safety equipment.
