- The much-anticipated Hyundai Venue has been revealed in all its glory. The compact SUV is confirmed to be launched in India on May 21.

- The Venue is 3,995 mm long and 1,770 mm wide and has a wheelbase of 2,500 mm. Also worth mentioning is that with a height of just 1,590 mm, it is the lower compact SUV around.
