Hyundai India launched their all-new Venue in the Indian market back on the 21st May 2019. The Hyundai Venue is the brand's first sub-four metre compact-SUV offering in the country.
Now, since its launch in the Indian market, Hyundai Venue sales in India has already crossed 7,000 units in the month of May 2019. The company registered 7,049 units of sales of the compact-SUV in the month of May 2019, overtaking most of its competition.
The Hyundai Venue is now already the second best-selling compact-SUV in the Indian market after the Maruti Vitara Brezza. The sales of the Hyundai Venue has already overtaken the Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and the Ford EcoSport here is the comparison between the Hyundai Venue and its rivals.
The Maruti Vitara Brezza continues to maintain the top-slot in the compact-SUV segment. However with a 44 percent decline in sales in May 2019, it does come under the risk of losing out to the Hyundai Venue. Maruti recorded just 8,781 units of sales for the Vitara Brezza in May, which is just a little over 1000 units more than the Hyundai Venue.
The third-slot in the Compact-SUV segment is occupied by the Mahindra XUV300 which recorded 5,113 units during the same period. According to Hyundai, majority of the sales of the Venue is from the new 1.0-litre petrol-DCT powertrain available on the top-spec SX+ variant here is the list of variants available on the Hyundai Venue, along with its features.
The Hyundai Venue is offered with a host of features and equipment, including a number of segment-firsts and best-in-class offerings.

Thoughts On The Hyundai Venue Sales In India For May 2019
The Hyundai Venue was one of the most-anticipated models from the Korean brand in the Indian market. The SUV has already performed extremely well in the Indian market, receiving over 17,000 bookings since launch. With the rate of demand for the Venue in India, it will be interesting to whether the Maruti Vitara brezza will be de-throned in the compact-SUV segment.
