Hyundai launched the Venue compact-SUV just a few days back. There was a lot of anticipation around this product, and clearly it is working well. Hyundai now claims that the Venue has received over 17,000 bookings and more than 80,000 enquirers for a purchase. The Hyundai Venue is the latest compact-SUV in India, and although late in this segment, seems like it has enough going for it.
Hyundai claims that with the launch of the Venue, they have received the highest ever footfall in their showrooms across the country.
