How do the two Hyundai SUVs compare against each other in the real world?

While Hyundai’s Venue and Creta might not compete in the same segment, they are positioned close to each other and are a source of confusion for those looking to buy an SUV. To help make your buying decision easier, we’ve compared the real-world performance and fuel efficiency of the two Hyundai SUVs.

In this comparison, we’ve chosen the Venue 1.4-litre diesel-manual and the Creta 1.6-litre diesel-manual as these are the cars we got to test. Before we move on to the real world tests, let's take a look at the specs of these two SUVs.

On paper, the Hyundai Creta has a more powerful engine while the Venue offers better fuel efficiency. However, what’s the story like in the real world?

Performance Comparison

The Creta’s bigger and more powerful engine comes into its own in the acceleration tests. It beats the Hyundai Venue hands down, with the smaller SUV managing to come closest to its elder sibling only in the 40-100kmph sprint in fourth gear.

Braking Distance:

28.53m (wet)

Hyundai Creta

43.43m

26.75m

The braking figures we have for the Venue were obtained during wet conditions and thus it might not be fair to pit them against those of the Creta, which was tested in dry conditions. However, there is only a gap of 2-3 metres in the figures, with the Creta being ahead in both situations, and thus we can say that their braking performance should be near-identical under ideal conditions.

Verdict

If money is no object and things like straight line speed, braking abilities and fuel efficiency while cruising on the highway matter to you, we suggest you pick the Creta. However, if you drive around the city a lot and are wary of spending extra on fuel, pick the Venue as it delivers excellent fuel efficiency in the city.
