With prices starting from Rs 6.5 lakh (ex-showroom), the Hyundai Venue is one of the most affordable sub-4m SUVs in the country. But how does it fare against the XUV300 in terms of value for money? Let’s find out.

But before diving into each variant and what they offer, let’s take a look at the specifications of the two sub-4m SUVs.

Dimensions:

  • While the XUV300 and the Venue are identical in length, the Mahindra beats the Venue on all other fronts. It is wider, taller and also has a longer wheelbase than the Hyundai.
  • The Venue has a much larger boot, which could come in handy for long road trips.

Engine:

Petrol

  • The naturally aspirated 1.2-litre unit of the Venue is the least powerful engine here. However, its 1.0-litre turbocharged engine makes the most power in this comparison.
  • In terms of torque, the Mahindra takes the lead.
  • Where the Venue is available with both automatic and manual transmission options with the turbocharged engine, the XUV300 is a manual-only offering for now.

Diesel

  • The XUV300’s 1.5-litre unit is not only bigger but more powerful as well.
  • The Mahindra makes 25PS more than Hyundai’s 1.4-litre unit.
  • The XUV300 makes more torque as well.
  • Both SUVs are only available with a 6-speed manual.
