Now, Hyundai has confirmed that they have sold more than 1 Lakh units of the Venue sub compact SUV in India.
Out of the total figure, 97,400 units of Hyundai Venue were sold in India. Around 7,400 units were exported to foreign countries. Within literally 12 months, Hyundai has achieved such a milestone for its SUV. Out of these sales, nearly 44% accounted for the turbo petrol variants.
