The local subcompact crossover battle is really heating up.

Hyundai Philippines has just launched the Venue in the local market, unveiling the vehicle just a little over the week after Kia Philippines introduced its own competitor in the form of the Stonic.

Locally, the Hyundai Venue is being sold in two variants. Check out the prices below:

2020 Hyundai Venue

  1. Hyundai Venue 1.6 GL 6AT – P915,000
  2. Hyundai Venue 1.6 GLS 6AT  - P985,000

Both variants are powered by the same engine: a Gamma 1.6-liter MPI gasoline mill capable of 121hp at 6,300rpm and up to 151Nm of torque at 4,850rpm. Mated to the engine is a six-speed automatic transmission, and power is put to the ground by a two-wheel drivetrain. There’s also a neat drive mode and traction control selector, so owners can optimize the vehicle’s driving dynamics based on the type of performance they need.

The top-spec Venue 1.6 GLS 6AT variant runs on 17-inch alloy wheels and gets exterior niceties like roof rails and a chrome grille. The base 1.6 GL variant, meanwhile, is noticeably less flashy with its smaller 15-inch wheels and a plain black grille. Both, however, flaunt a very compact form factor and modern styling.

Inside, you’re looking at mostly dark plastic. The minimalist interior approach is attractive, though, and all units come equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment setup with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Four color options are available at launch: Denim Blue, Lava Orange, Cosmic Gray, Polar White, and Phantom Black. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear like any two-tone finishes we’ve seen offered in other markets are currently available for the local version of the crossover.

The Venue is a pretty interesting proposition given at its price. Actually, considering the current economic climate, under P1 million could potentially be the sweet spot for budget-minded car buyers. Will you be checking this out at a dealership any time soon?
