The Hyundai QXi will be called Venue and it will be positioned between the i20 Active and Creta.
Hyundai had showcased the Carlino concept at the 2016 Auto Expo and the Korean automaker has been testing this new sub 4-metre SUV since a long time now. Hyundai has now announced that the production version of the Carlino, or the QXi as it was known, will be Venue. The vehicle will make its debut on 17th April 2019.
The Hyundai Venue will rival the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon. It will be slotted below the Creta. The Venue is expected to be loaded with a lot of features like a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, projector headlamps, auto AC, sunroof, keyless go and the likes.
On the mechanical front, the Hyundai Venue is expected to be offered with 3 engine options. The 1.4-litre petrol and diesel engines from the Verna will be offered on the Venue and the diesel engine will most likely get an AT too. The vehicle will also be offered with a 1.0-litre, 3-cyl, turbo petrol engine which will come with a DCT.
