The car will offer as many as 33 connectivity features. In addition, the Venue will offer many other features as is the standard with Hyundai cars of today.
What is confirmed however is that there will be two choices of automatic gearboxes on offer with Venue. One will the standard Automatic gearbox and the other being a sport-oriented Dual Clutch Transmission. As the name suggests, the DCT will have a double clutch setup. While one clutch will engage the odd gears (1st, 3rd, 5th) the other will engage the even gears(2nd, 4th).
