latest offering in the crowded sub-4 metre segment, the Venue, will be launched tomorrow. The SUV was earlier unveiled in India, where we got a glimpse of what to expect in terms of powertrain options and features, but the all-important prices are yet to be revealed. With the Venue coming in hot with its set of new powertrain options (including a turbo petrol motor) and impressive features list, we expect the fight to get interesting in the coming days. Here is what you can expect from the upcoming SUV:

One of the strongest traits of the Venue is the choice of engines and transmission available. The Venue comes with three engines and three transmission options. Starting with the oil burner, the Venue comes with a 1.4-litre diesel engine pushing out 90PS/220Nm mated to a 6-speed manual. There is a 1.2-litre petrol engine producing 83PS/115Nm mated to a 5-speed manual, and this engine will power the base variants of the SUV. The biggest news, however, is the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol which, according to Hyundai, makes a healthy 120PS of power and 172Nm of torque coupled to a 7-speed DCT, which is also the only dual-clutch automatic in the segment as of now.

On paper, the SUV's powertrain options and the figures are right up there with what the competition has to offer. However, features are where the Venue looks to edge past its competition. The Venue, when launched tomorrow, will be the first made-in-India connected SUV. An embedded eSIM is used for the connected tech, which Hyundai calls Blue Link. It will offer features that include unique functions like remote start, climate controls and location tracking, along with a host of features. Head here to read more about what it packs.

The SUV in India will be available in five variants, seven monotone colours and three dual-tone colour options. The colours on offer include: Star Dust, Fiery Red, Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Deep Forest, Lava Orange,and Denim Blue. The dual-tone colour combinations are: blue with white roof, white with black roof and orange with black roof.

With a total of 11 engine-transmission combinations, the Venue comes packed to take on its rivals. The top of the line 1.0-litre turbocharged unit is only available in the S and SX+ variants.. The brand had also started official pre-bookings against a token amount of Rs 21,000 and has managed to attract 2,000 bookings in just 24 hours.

Among its key rivals are the popular Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport, and the Mahindra XUV300. While the Venue does have all the makings for a strong debut in the sub-4 metre SUV segment, it is the pricing that will play a crucial role in its success in the country. So stay tuned for all the updates from the launch and the first drive review in the coming days.
