The model range of crossovers of the Korean brand Hyundai in Russia will soon be replenished with the youngest model. Thus, the Korean automaker decided for himself a difficult task — to bring to Russia the coolest and advanced crossover Hyundai Kona or to please Russian motorists something easier. The choice fell on «simpler».
Now the domestic market along with the record holder in the class SUV crossover Hyundai Creta will attack the model of the class low — the Hyundai Venue crossover. It is known about him that on the eve of the release of the Indian market this car installed a record by the number of orders. At the same time, at home, in South Korea, he immediately became the second sales of the SUV brand, moving away the Tucson, Kona and, another hit of the season, Palisade.
Now Hyundai Venue went to the global offensive. In addition to India, it is sold in Australia for a couple of months and from day to day will begin to be sold in North America. Representatives of the brand never announced his appearance in Russia.
However, three days ago, namely, on November 21, Hyundai officially registered the design of the VENUE model in the Russian patent register, the document is posted on it in the open-based Rospatent.
And this reason to think and claim that the «younger brother» Creta is preparing to attack the Russian market.
However, the global VENUE has a wide range of adaptation under local markets. For example, Venue for India is seriously different from Korean for power units, equipping and finishing the interior. There is always only a chassis with an independent front pendant front and half-dependent from behind, and drive only on the front axle.
The most interesting is the machine for the United States, equipped with a non-alternative to 1.6-liter atmospheric gasoline engine SmartStream combined injection system with a capacity of 123 hp. and variator IVT. The price of VENUE in the United States starts from $ 17,250 (approximately 1,100 thousand rubles).
Well, we have left to wait for the details about Hyundai Venue for the Russian market.
